Print jewel case backside cover with iTunes 4.5 Apps
Apple made it easy to print Jewel Case covers and other lists with new version of iTunes. However there seems to be no predefined format to print a back-side cover for standard size boxes. I made my own Custom Paper Size and printed a Song Listing using these settings for A4 paper (height 29,7 cm / width 20,99 cm):
  • Top 0,64 cm
  • Left 0,64 cm
  • Right 6,5 cm
  • Bottom 16,56 cm
The margins may have to be adjusted a millimeter or so depending on printer used and if you want the border or not when cutting. As I live in Europe measurements are in centimeters and "," is used to separate decimals. Correct margins for US legal (8.5 x 14 in) would be:
  • Top 0.25 in
  • Left 0.25 in
  • Right 2.8 in
  • Bottom 8.83 in
Hope this helps, and please correct me if my conversion to US units are off the wall.

Just use google to convert, searching for "10 cm in inch" will give you the result directly. (10 centimeters = 3.93700787 inch). (also works for kilograms, megabytes, but not yet for currency sadly) You can also do quick calculations like "10 * 4 / 2 ^ 2" which will give (10 * 4) / (2^2) = 10.

This is especially handy if you have quicksilver (or something else) with google-searching set up. You have a quick calculator at the tip of your hands :-)

0,64 centimeters = 0,251968504 in
6,5 centimeters = 2,55905512 in
16,56 centimeters = 6,51968504 in

Ah, google, my n°1 company :-)

You can also use Apple's 'Calculator' to do the conversions.

In the US, we haven't fully converted to "inches" as measurement units yet. Although it depends on what part of the country you go to school, most of us still use the "shaftment".

Top 0,64 cm
Left 0,64 cm
Right 6,5 cm
Bottom 16,56 cm

Top 39 mSh
Left 39 mSh
Right 390 mSh
Bottom 1 Sh

It's a well-known fact here in the US that the back width of a CD was set to be exactly one shaftment. Just FYI.

Michael.

I layout CD artwork for a living and our major label specs we use are as follows:

The "inlay" or "tray card" of a standard CD jewel case is a rectangle of paper 138mm wide by 118mm high.

The two thin spines add another 6.5 mm each to the width for a final dimension of 151mm wide x 118mm high.

Add trim marks around the perimeter of this rectangle, also try adding a couple of fold marks above and below where the two spines start.Before you trim out your artwork score the spines using an unserated butter knife and a ruler. This will make it easy to fold accurately prior to insertion into the tray.
