How to Make a Custom CD Cover
Create proper covers for your homemade CDs. (cd's image by Dianne Burridge from

Many people download CDs from the Internet instead of purchasing them at the local record store. Internet users download songs and transfer them to an MP3 player or compact disc. Create custom CD covers for your downloaded music mixes to easily keep track of your music collection or give burnt CDs away as gifts. Unlike the good old days, you no longer have to buy a CD from the store to ensure it has a proper cover.

  1. 1

    Decide on the type of cover you want on your CD case. Some online designs allow you to upload custom images, while others allow you to simply include the title and the tracks on your disc.

  2. 2

    Navigate to the website with the template that best suits your needs. Paper CD Case will give you a simple text cover, while Big Huge Labs account can be used to add images that are uploaded from your computer.

  3. 3

    Upload images to your CD cover template, if applicable. Use an image from the original album's cover, if copyright laws allow. Otherwise, choose another public domain image or one that you have uploaded yourself. For CDs that are going to be used as party favours, consider uploading a picture of the birthday boy, wedding couple or special graduate.

  4. 4

    Type applicable text into provided template boxes. Double-check the order of your tracks if you are listing all of the songs on your CD. Ensure the artist's name, title of the CD and all other text is spelt correctly.

  5. 5

    Print your CD cover onto plain white paper or onto glossy photo paper if you want a more professional look. Cut out the cover, fold it and place it into your CD case.
