Thread: Making a custom CD insert

  1. #1

    Making a custom CD insert

    OK, so I'm making a mixtape. I'm in love. Oops. Blah blah fuck you idiot etc.

    Anyway.

    I'm going to design a bunch of panels in photoshop but what I need to know is:

    1) What program has a decent cd-insert layout with lots of options that will allow me to transfer in shit I make in photoshop with relative ease?

    2) I need a font that looks like handwriting in a notebook, preferably cursive but readable and nothing too flowery.

    That's about it. I can find backgrounds and shit on my own.

    Any ideas here?

    You're never too old for mixtapes.

    in 1985 I was barely 1 year old.

    One of these statements is not true.

    Pretty simple to do what you want.

    You could also just find a template for WORD and import the images there.

    Well, the first thing is to pick the labels you want to use, since different labels will require different templates. Hop over to the manufacturer's website and they will probably have templates or software you can download. Since you are using Photoshop a PSD template would be ideal.

    Most CD labeling software will let you import jpegs, so you can design whatever you want in Photoshop, save it as a Jpeg and then import. I would do the text in the CD labeling software and not in Photoshop if possible so that you don't have to rasterize the text.

    As far as the font....maybe Monotype Corsiva? Or if that is too gay Freestyle Script.
