Obtaining Supplies of CD/DVD Jewel Cases

  spuds 12:22 12 Jan 2009

I am trying to obtain supplies of new single or double disk (100pc)clear/black CD/DVD cases.

Checking a variety of on-line suppliers including eBay seems to result in excessive postage charges.

Would mention that our usual local supplier as now ceased trading due to rent and rate increases. He normally sold the cases for about 9 pence each on average.

Can you recommend a good company who offers a good product at a fair price.

Thanks for that, the catalogue seems to carry a good range.But only problem is the postage again. Purchasing say 500 pieces as a trail order would cost over £15.00 for postage, with increases for larger orders.

I think that you could be right regarding postage. Just done a quote for 500 pieces and the postage on the top site was £14.99. This seems to be the average from most on-line sites, except perhaps Ebuyer, who have a good range of CD/DVD cases.

SVP/ Big Pockets/ Disk Depot (who are possibly one of the same?) seem to have similar rates and products range.

Correction: Ebuyer, who 'do not' have a good range of CD/DVD cases.

hi spuds....
have you tried other pc shops in the area or maybe a local computer fair ??? most fairs i have visited have more than one stall selling jewel cases ...Dave

I suspect it's not the weight of the cases, but the overall size that incurs the delivery cost.

Perhaps using an outlet that delivers via courier might prove cheaper?

daxian, we had a computer fair in our area once a month but now its every two months or so, and the last one was just before Christmas, so might consider that, next time around. The local £1 shops who have supplies are selling the larger DVD cases in bundles of 10, so not to bad there. The CD cases seem a bit more rare. A fairly local 'we stock or can get about everything' shop is going to see what they can do for me.

Stuartli, that's the problem I think, Royal Mail and their postage size policy.

I think that I will put this to bed now. Thanks everyone for the inputs.

They aren't clear or black but the price isn't bad

If these are the same type of CD/DVD jewel cases I bought at Tesco recently (pack of 10 for just under £1.50), they are very poor indeed and also easily break.

Unusual for Tesco, which normally sources reasonable quality items.
