Now that the cds are all ripped to a drive, the jewel cases are hanging around (somewhere), often with only thin spines to show for themselves, rack stacked and covers covered up.
Tired of browsing his cd collection by spine, Dean Fallander created a decorative display system for jewel case cover art. CDWallTile allows music fans to design their own patterns of framed jewel cases and display their favorite cd cover designs on walls or other surfaces. The frames hold jewel cases securely while allowing easy access to the disc. They can be hung without damaging the walls (no tools needed) and come in a variety of colors. Special connecting devices keep the pattern of covers properly aligned while hanging.

OPINION: Thumbs up! It was album art that first got me interested in graphic design on the way to becoming a cd cover designer. CDWallTile looks like a great system for displaying the work of my design group. I could also see using the frames for displaying cases of cds in current listening rotation... lots of possibilities.
UPDATE: Aug 2006:
We purchased a few boxes recently and created a display for our office wall that gets plenty of attention and positive feedback. Our clients can focus on our cd designs while coming up the stairs. It was easy to create a custom, perfectly spaced pattern with their included spacers, and then hang it all up at once. Click around the CDWallTile website to view other displays, and shop the online store.
