Create Printed Paper Sleeves for Your Burned CDs and DVDs



The 'net is a great place to get your hands on music and movies, but if you're like me you sometimes have difficulty remembering to label the disc or its container.

Liquid Mongoose
has created a clever web app that will create a custom paper sleeve from any AOL Music album page or Netflix DVD page. All you need to do is drag the bookmarklet link to your Firefox toolbar or add it to your favorites in IE.

Visit the page of the album or movie you want to sleeve, click the bookmark, and go to file -> print preview. Voila! Just make sure your page is set to print at 100% and not fit to page, or the sleeve may not look correct after folding.

CD sleeves contain album artwork and details and a full track listing, while DVDs print a cover shot, synopsis, and rating information.

The template doesn't print fold lines, so you'll want to check out the tutorial video at the bottom of the Liquid Mongoose page. It's a pretty simple operation, and very easy to master. Full props for the application, but the LM logo is a little unsightly. I'll be GIMPing it out until it looks a little better.
