For CDs that are destined for commercial release, or even those that are intended for personal archival and study by participating artists, the addition of semi-professional to professional CD Jewel Case artwork is important.

If you want Lucid or a CD replicator company to reproduce cover artwork and credits using your art design, you will need to follow the template requirements of Lucid or the replicator. Typically, artwork is provided to either Lucid or to a replicator service in Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop format.

Additionally, Lucid will often take concert program artwork from an outside graphic artist, and turn this into pseudo-custom artwork for the concert CD. Below are a few examples of that. The 8.5x11 concert program artwork was provided in Adobe Illustrator format, and modified to fit the geometry required for the CD artwork.
