CD covers are one of the elements in an album that help us decide whether the product is worth buying or not. It’s what stops us as we pass by the CD shelf and make us turn it over to peruse the track list. The cover is also our first glimpse of the music or content in the CD. If it’s a pop music album, you’ll probably see eccentric designs and bright colors. If it’s a rock music album, you’re going to see a lot of black and gritty designs.
Here are some CD cover templates that we have compiled for you, available for download and ready for you to modify however you please. They are beautiful, elegant, and you’re sure to find CD cover templates that best represents the music and content you have worked so hard to produce.
There are a lot of things that make a great CD cover. The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band record would have been forgotten had the fab four not designed the album cover the way they had. That said, there are three major elements that make CD covers great.

Images are the first thing that people see and consider when they look at your CD, so you have to choose thoughtfully the pictures or photographs that go into the cover. If you’re designing a music album cover, you’ll want an image that complements the music. If it’s a wedding CD, you’ll want the best romantic shot of the newlyweds. If it’s a company CD, the logo will have to take a prominent place on the cover. (We have a well-stocked compilation of images and icons available on site to help you with this step.)

Colors are what arrest the attention, so the colors have to be right and fit the content of the CD. CDs with formal/business content will most likely sport neutral shades, while wedding CD covers will have bright and elegant hues. (If you’re planning to publish your wedding video as a DVD, we also collected a host of DVD cover templates for you utilize for your DVD covers.)
Taglines usually contribute to the selling point of CDs, especially music albums and films. You’ll want a line of text that either confounds, tickles, or questions the buyer. For this step, you’ll also want to consider how these texts appear. They have to comprehensible and, at the same time, look beautiful. (We have a compilation of script font styles, cursive font styles, and elegant font styles that are ideal for CD covers.)
If you don’t know how to navigate image editing software, it best to consult the services of a professional. After all, in the world of marketing, it’s the cover that counts.
