I am typing our huge end-of-month CD sale listings. I am struck by something.

Why do any labels use digipaks? I’m not even a “hardcore” collector (as far as condition or what I keep anymore) and I loathe them.

Jewel boxes can be a pain when they break, but they keep the inserts and disc safe, and are easy to replace.

But digipaks—you pick it up and it suddenly has a fingerprint. You look at it funny—and it bends, dings or warps. I don’t get it! Who thought this was a good idea?

Maybe they are cheaper? I had no interest in making them at FSM, so I never researched prices.

Needless to say, we handle them very carefully when we do our sales.
