Does anyone know what the DVD trays that are frequently used on Paramount TV shows are called and where they can be purchased?

These are clear or colored depending on the show and stacked and has tape on one side that makes it hinge. For example, Star Trek TOS and Enterprise. Other shows like the Flintstones Season 1 or The Odd Couple have them glued onto a cardboard fold-out.

Thanks! Nelson

You might want to check out Bags Unlimited. They carry CD digipak trays that may be what you're looking for. At least, they look similar to what was used for the Star Trek TOS sets.

Thanks Tim! I did a search on that site and then I googled digipak and found some trays. Still looking, but digipak was what I needed to narrow the search.

Nelson,

Here are a few sites I collected years ago (and haven't used them since, so I cannot recommend them, or what), but perhaps it helps.

(These still "worked"):

http://www.sleevetow.../dvd-case.shtml
http://www.usplastic....e=18633&Page=1
http://www.americal....smart_cart2.cgi

(on the last one you need to go down the page and click on any of the "info" buttons.)

I also don't know if the company behind those sites still "work". Posted Image
But, again, it might be of any help to you.

Nelson Au,

Yes, these seem to be what I am looking for, so I may try getting them from one of these sites.

Guys, those trays you're referring to? The ones that Paramount uses for Star Trek Enterprise, CSI and the like? All they are are single trays scotch-taped together ...
