CD Cover Dimensions. CD Booklet.
A Standard 4 page biooklet.
This is the most commonly used cover for CD Production.
Bleed required 3mm.
These are the page sizes for your cd booklet of any size, 4, 8, 12, 16 page and so on.
A 4 page booklet is simply one piece of paper folded in half to create the 4 pages.
The measurements shown are exact trimmed sizes and with 3 mm bleed which should be added to each edge to allow for trim.
When the artwork is trimmed, slight variations can occur so the 3 mm is there to to avoid a white line being shown on trimmed edges.
Finished Artwork Size Including Bleed.
The above image is displayed as a printers pair, eg: pages 4 & 1 side by side,
page 4 being on the left and page one on the right.
The total dimensions including bleed for both pages would therefore be:
Total Width = 247mm ~ (3 + 120.5 + 120.5 + 3 = 247)
(Width page 4 (120.5) + page 1 (120.5) + 3mm bleed left + 3mm bleed Right)
Total Hight = 125.5mm ~ (3 + 119.5 + 3 = 125.5)
(Hight of page (119.5) plus 3mm bleed top + 3mm bleed bottom)
3mm Safe Rule.
No text or detail should be placed closer than 3 mm to trimmed edges or folds, this ensures no loss of detail etc in the folding, trimming process.
