Share Article

The Dering Corporation�s CShell® media packaging continues to be in high demand. New CShell DB (Double) introduced.

The production of CShell Classics™ continues to grow year after year for The Dering Corporation and its licensees. In 2004, The Dering Corporation had a 30% increase in the number of CShell Classics sold compared to the previous year. David D. Dering, President and CEO of The Dering Corporation states “The interest for a light-weight and eye-catching media package will always be important for marketers and manufacturers looking to ship digital media and target their customers more effectively.”

CShell packaging was introduced in 1997 as an ultra-slim, lighter weight option to the traditional plastic jewel box design. The original CShell Classic was designed to hold a compact disc and other forms of digital media in a one-piece polypropylene plastic case that comes in a variety of opaque and transparent colors. Today, The Dering Corporation manufactures the CShell CL™ (Classic), CShell SQ™ (Square), CShell BC™ (Business Card), CShell MD™ (Mini-Disc), DiscSaver®, the PearlPak™, and the new CShell DB™ (Double).

The increase in demand has been from both the business market, as well as the consumer market. “More and more consumers are buying the product in retail outlets as well as online,” says Dering. “With the continued advancement of personal computers and media production software, people are now creating more media projects at home than ever. Many people like to store their projects in packaging that is a little different than a standard jewel case or paper sleeve. They tell us how much they love the cool factor of the CShell.”

On August 17, 2004, The Dering Corporation introduced its newest CShell media case called the CShell DB, also known as the CShell Double. The CShell DB has the same durable, light-weight construction of the original CShell Classic, while holding two discs at a time with two durable hinges instead of just one.

“The CShell DB is the solution many of our customers told us they were searching for. They want a way to send their customers two discs in one slim package. Instead of settling for a traditional double jewel case, they want something that sets them apart. Something innovative and fun,” says Dering. Like all of the other CShells products, the CShell DB is available in a variety of transparent and opaque colors.
