Downsizing the collection

Hi guys,

A Q for you converted people....

Do you keep the back paper insert intact and complete when you ditch the jewel case????

I've met some guys that just rip the sides off to get it into the soft plastic.

Some of the plastic sleeves, such as the ones sold by Jazzloft, do allow to keep the sides. This what i intend to do at least.

Yes - agreed about the spine/visibility, a nice bonus feature.

They are perfectly shaped for the spine cardboard and I actually had fun replacing my jewel box collection. Worked even with double CDs.

Most of my CD collection are in a couple of entertainment unit drawers and I can easily flip through them. Probably better if you have them upright in a tower display. I had to build some small dividers in the drawers, like a kitchen utensil drawer. They tend to slide a bit as a group if held in a longish area.

But still, you can see the spines quite easily with these guys. I understand there are cheaper alternatives, but I’d get more if I acquire a few more hundred CDs. <_<

Where the info on the back sleeve is duplicated within I normally ditch it.

Where it's not I'll cut the back insert down to fit in the clear sleeve. Or, in some cases where important info is spread right to the edges, I just fold it in two.

Ok, thanks guys.

I kind of like the idea of keepin the product "intact" ie not cutting away paper insert. Then you can "restore" the whole CD in the future should you wish to do so.

But how about digipacks????
