A4 Paper CD Case in SVG

If you search on delicious for “paper cd case” apart from other you’ll find these two pages (1, 2), which present Web forms. The forms allow you to enter some text and after submitting offers you to download a PDF file, which, when printed, allows you to fold a CD case from paper. Another alternative is this page.

This all works very well. I received some pretty “Wow”s after showing those CD cases to friends. However for the times, when I backup my growing MP3 collection to DVD I wanted a bit more influence, on what can be printed on the case. Therefore I duplicated the folding lines in a SVG file. Once loaded into Inkscape, you have all Inkscape tools available to style the CD case appropriately.
