Where can I find these amazing plastic hingeless jewel cases?
June 29, 2010 7:28 AM   Subscribe

I work for a public radio show. Sometimes we receive flexible CD cases from film studios that we absolutely love. We'd like to order a case of these. However, we can't seem to find them online. They don't have hinges -- and they're incredibly thin. This is what they look like. Do you know what these are called and where we can get them?

They're not these because we called and asked if they were flexible; they're not -- and they have hinges.

We assume that film companies are buying these in bulk from a plant. We'd like to order from the same plant -- but we can't figure out what they're called.

Thanks for your help in advance.

What about these, from a library supply company?

shiny blue has it. They are called polypropylene jewel cases or more exactly, polypropylene clamshells.

If you need a good source for these in bulk, I have consistently purchased from Super Media Store and been happy every time. $25 and over and you get free shipping and with stuff like this, it's pretty easy to get over $25.
