RS + SP - Digipak Research - AC/DC - Iron Man 2

Front Cover
  • Front with the album artwork accompanied with the artist name and the album title
  • Stickers are usually found on the front of the digipak saying "includes "...." in this album!"
  • The outside of the digipak can use very bright and inviting colours to make it attractive on the shelve and then use darker colours inside the actual digipak.
  • Digipaks are seen as the LP's of this century and can be seen as a collectable like LP's as they are much more interesting than a standard jewel case. 
  • The spine of the digipak usually has the artist name, album name

Back Cover
  • Back cover typically with the tracklist including time of the songs. The back cover also typically contains:
  • Bar Code
  • QR code (becoming more common)
  • Smallprint with copyright laws written
  • Website for the artist
  • Twitter/Facebook sites (becoming more common)
  • Usually the bands record label logo can be seen

  • Inside the digipak there is sometimes text displaying the names of the composers for each song in smaller print than the song title
  • There is sometimes a small handout which contains further artwork, maybe some images of the artist playing live or possibly lyrics
  • The actual CD can usually be found in the main part of the digipak in a plastic holder with two panels to each side
  • Some digipaks have two cd's within the card case. One for the actual CD and another for behind the scenes or some sort of DVD
