Anniversary CD

My partner and I’s ten year anniversary was approaching, so I decided to create a special gift for him. I came up with the idea of designing a custom music album encompassing the past decade.

 

I decided that I wanted to create a trifold case with a corresponding lyrics booklet. After measuring and looking at several other music albums, I created a template that allowed for 3 folds — the trick is adding an extra 1/16″ to the leftmost spine. Instead of struggling with lining up a two sided print, I opted for printing everything on one side, folding it down across the top edge, and gluing it. This had the following benefits: the case was sturdier, and I wouldn’t have to worry about offset.
