I don't know if these would work for your project, but are you looking
for something like this?
(3rd item down - "Resealable Mylar Outer." I don't endorse this
particular supplier, it's just the first example I found...)
I worked in a record store that used a sleeve similar to these for
re-shelving cds that were opened for customers to listen to. The
material is very thin, and they are made to hold an entire jewel case.
The adhesive is light and opens and re-seals easily. While I can't say
how "archival" they are, they were very durable and held up well in a

Subject: [ARSCLIST] "Slipcover for CD cases"
Hopefully the archivists here will know what I want...
We have a lot of CDs to label as part of an archiving project. Regular
jewel cases are no problem but I am loathed to advocate labelling those
"paper jewel cases" (that are the same size as plastic jewel cases) but
have their covers printed on the actual case. Do you know what I am
referring to ? Are there any paper or very thin "slip cases" that could
go over these so we could label them without losing or damaging the
original, underlying "sleeve"? The slip needs to be very thin so it
could go in CD racks that are used for storage (they have gaps ready) or
in our drawers (to preserve space). I don't know the correct term so
my searches have been in vain.
Thanks in advance. Darren
