The foil pack may seem like it’s something that only goes well with a box of cereal or a bag of chips. However,take a look at how foil packs are used as CD packaging. Awesome or what?
The foil bubble wrap not only gives this album a bit of sleek, industrial look, it also protects the CDs inside especially since it’s only packaged in a soft cardboard wallet. It’s the same as Bosco’s “Spectrum” Gold Foil CD packaging. On top of all these reasons for having this kind of packaging, the recipients would surely have a helluva good time popping those bubbles.
Bosco Foil CD Packaging
The pill style trays for the album ‘Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space’ were packed under strict pharmaceutical manufacturing conditions. Each blister contained a 3 inch CD featuring one of twelve tracks which had to be popped through foil in order to be played.
MF Doom’s Limited Edition release is packaged in a foil wrap that makes it look like an item you can purchase from a grocery store.
KAISER CHIEF’S FOIL – Education, Education, Education & War
Kaiser Chief’s album comes in a vintage-looking container with tins, foil packets and plastic packages each bear the band’s name and the title of a different song on the album. Pretty rad.
