Seminal, Epic, Exciting, Special – are all words that musicians would like to have attributed to their music. At Packaged Sounds we constantly push the boundaries of physical packaging for Vinyl and CD releases as we believe that great music deserves equally spectacular packaging.
We understand that producing Iconic music packaging requires attention to detail and a passion for perfection. With over two decades of experience to draw on our team of packaging experts have had a lot of practice and are proud to have everything under one roof – from design, prepress and prototyping to printing, assembly and distribution
What’s more, we thrive on being different. Aside from the standard finishes in the music industry we like raise the bar for special editions by offering unique solutions. We work with wood and metal manufacturers as well as composite material artists to create one-off artefacts for product launches and unique small run collector’s pieces.
Creating unique ideas
Our focus on the best solution begins by listening to your needs, this enables us to create packaging design concepts from the bottom up. Our talented inhouse packaging and design team utilise the latest CAD software and equipment to produce thought provoking initial proof of concepts. This culminates in the production of final prototypes to allow stakeholders to see how the final package might look.
We believe in close collaboration, hence we will explore other considerations with you within your budget and any options to enhance and embellish the packaging. As you would expect we offer a huge range of materials, finishes and mechanisms to compliment your music.
A key part of our flexibility comes from being able to provide both small highly customised print runs with hand finishing through to large scale complex releases that require print and finishing automation. With multiple print facilities and options, volume for us is never an issue as we have substantial capacity for sheet-fed and web printing as well as digital print.
When you produce with us you will find an extensive library of options, all backed by the most flexible print and packaging technology to deliver everything from simple Sleeves to Deluxe Limited Edition Vinyl and CD Boxsets. And once everything is approved we take care of the complete process to make sure your product arrives on time prior to your Album or EP launch.
As a manufacturer with warehousing capability, we don’t just manufacture parts and drop them at your door step, we can store your call-off stock, handle distribution to multiple channels and deal with just in time delivery to multiple locations. All outsourced to us and performed discreetly on your behalf.
