[ubuntu-uk] Wanted: artists input on papercdcase.

For a while now I have been wondering how we can create good quality CD 
cases without the inherent ( potential waste ) of creating the current 
Cardboard flyer/folders and with a mechnism to allow us to create new 
content for the cover ( including such wondeful things as local 
Ubuntu/Lug contacts ). I am taking a leaf from such classics as 
PaperCDcase ( http://www.papercdcase.com/ ) and the example video from 
the Digg article ( 
http://digg.com/videos/educational/Coolest_Cheapest_and_Practical_CD_Cases_you_ll_even_own_How_to_make_one 
). I am not a designer of graphics and art but I can see a opportunity 
here to create a suitable which can be printed on two sides of good 
quality A4 paper and then folded to create the case .  Since the artwork 
can be printed in small scale ( inket / colourlaser ) or large scale ( 
PDC Copyprint ? ) and then folded as required it seems a better fit to 
answering the on going presentation requirements. So is there anyone 
here who can help ?

Now yes I understand that  this will require work to create the case, 
but not all things quick and cheap come are easy . I will open a page on 
the the wiki and post some thoughts on this as a project idea but I 
wanted to get this a ball rolling.

Cheers

Nik
