Thanks so much to both of you for your advice!!!  I think we're going to do the paper bags for now & also order the shrink wrap for future shows.  I really appreciate your help, thanks again!!!  Smiley

I wouldn't mind at all.  The weekends already over (it was a nightmare!  but that's another story) but we still need to find a way to properly package them in the future, they have another show coming up next weekend they'll need them for.  I just wasn't sure where to put it really, so if you think it'll do better there, by all means, please do!  I'd do it myself but I'm not sure how, or if it's even possible for me to do that.

By the way, they were paper sleeves... but not by choice, they were originally supposed to be the printed cardboard sleeves but again, this was all very much a nightmare & everything that could go wrong, did.  We did use your idea sticking the pins on the paper sleeves & it worked out well!!  So thank you!!  We just handed the stickers out seperate. 

From now on we will be packaging them in printed cardboard sleeves.  The pin is small - 1".  The sticker is about half the size of the CD, I think.  Perhaps a little bigger.

Thanks again!!!

Hi everyone!  My boyfriend has a bit of a dilemma so I'm coming to you for help/ideas/etc.  He's in a band & they have a show coming up tomorrow.  They have 3 songs that are being put on discs as we speak to sell at the show.  However, we don't know how we're going to package them.  It's kind of like an all-day/night festival he's playing at, so the people buying the packages will be most likely carrying them around all day.  He's selling a pin, sticker, & 3-song CD all in one package, so you don't want all those loose ends because not only are people not going to want to carry that all around with them all day but they could fall out of pockets etc.  I was thinking shrink wrap, but apparently those machines cost a lot of money. 

Then I thought maybe just regular old plastic wrap, but it won't look very professional looking if you do that.  Plus, I don't think the plastic wrap is thick enough & am afraid the pin will puncture through.

Any ideas?
