Media Manufacturing

We manufacture most types of media (cds, dvds, blurays, books, video players, usbs, etc) but there are a few speciality types (vinyl records, cassettes) that we do not. For those items, we can provide just the packaging.

Window Shop & Customize Away

If you aren’t sure what type of packaging you want to make yet, browse the categories and get up to speed on all the fun terminology in the world of printing and packaging. Or if you basically know what you want to manufacture but you are looking for some fun twists, check out these custom packaging photos from our titles for some good ideas.

Because nothing we do is off-the-shelf, we can customize everything. For instance, if we don’t have a die for the packaging you want to create already, we can make you one. Please feel free to pick and choose features you like for multiple titles. Once you know what you want to make, reach out to us for a manufacturing quote!

Minimum Quantity

Please note minimum order size and media requirements on the quote request form. Because commercial presses have set up costs involved, they are only suitable for larger quantity runs.

USB Drive Packaging

Custom Fit USB Box

USBs usually like to be cushioned in foam or held in place with cardboard because they are somewhat bulky and require some depth in the packaging. Because we have creative clients, we also have creative USBs and ways to hold them.
Think: chunky USBs.

  • USB Boxes can be any size but 5×5 is very popular with our clients. Although we encourage clients to think outside the box, USB boxes remain the top choice.
  • Because USBs are a little chunky, we like to use Foam Wells that are custom cut for the USB we are manufacturing for you.
  • Cardboard Wells can also be made to hold USBs securely.
  • And of course you can add lots of items to a USB package including discs, cards, and books.
  • We can also help with uploading your data.
