Printed CD Cover Design Tips
When creating your CD cover design file, use these tips:
- Make the document page size equal to the cover size plus the bleed area or 4.974" x 4.974" to be trimmed down to the finished size after printing. If you aren't planning to include bleeds, the bleed area isn't necessary so set the document size to the finished size of 4.724" square.
- Play it safe near the borders.
Because cutting may vary ever so slightly, it's a good idea to keep all of your valuable text and logo information within the safe design zone. This zone is the 1/8 inch around the margin of your cover or inlay card.
