CD/DVD Sleeves

What type of custom CD and DVD sleeves does PrintNinja offer?

Clear PVC CD DVD Sleeve

Clear PVC CD DVD Sleeve

For certain projects, including a DVD or a CD with your book just makes sense. Maybe your book is about understanding a certain software, and you’d like to include a CD-Rom with the book so the user can follow along. Or, if your book is a compilation of lyrics from your original music, you may want to include one of your CDs so readers can read along with your lyrics as they listen. Or maybe your book is a children’s storybook, and you’d like to add a DVD with a short animation of your story on it so that children can easily watch your story on the go!

Have a CD or DVD you’d like to include with your book? Add a clear PVC sleeve to your inside front or back cover for easy storage. Please note that PrintNinja cannot create CDs or DVDs, so you will need to obtain those on your own and manually insert them.

If you will be using PrintNinja’s warehousing and fulfillment services, though, then you can save time by sending your CDs or DVDs to us and having us insert them into the custom CD and DVD sleeves in each order.

Manufacturing Requirements and Recommendations

  • The size of the DVD and CD Sleeve is 5.25” X 6“.
  • Discoloraztion of the sleeves is to be expected over long periods of time.
  • Application of a sleeve is recommended on the inside covers of hardcover projects or board books for durability. If the project is saddle stitched, perfect bound, or wire/spiral bound the thickest cover stock available (14pt) for the project is recommended for application of the sleeve.
  • The sleeve placement needs to be at least 10mm (.40”) from the binding and at least 5mm (.20”) from the trim.


  • $0.30 per unit.

Since this addition is NOT available in our instant quoting calculator, you will need to request this be added to your project while locking in your price on our quoting calculator. Just be sure to add a note in the additional info below “Save my Quote” that says something like, “Would like to include a DVD pocket on my inside front cover”. We’ll reach out to you with a custom quote (or questions) within 1 business day of receiving your request.

We will need a reference image provided showing the intended placement of the sleeve. You can find the setup guide here for this add-on.
