Packaging Design

We have a graphic arts student on staff to assist with packaging and you are welcome to collarborate on the design. CTL (Center for Teaching and Learning) also has a staff that may assist developers with packaging design. Please note companies that license BYU projects will do their own packaging.

IMPORTANT: Please note that images and fonts used to design packaging must also have copyright clearance. Visit the Copyright Licensing website for more information. Review this article for the possible nasty consequences of ignoring these types of clearances.

All graphic materials must conform to Creative Works templates. Please email and request which templates you will need from the following list:

Entrapment: this is the graphic that slips into the front sleeve and becomes the DVD cover, front and back.
Label: The graphic used on the face of the DVD disc itself.
Insert: This is an info sheet or booklet that clips to the inside of the DVD case. Specify page count.

The following must appear on all entrapments, inserts and labels where indicated:
