The Arigato Pak!
The origins of our popular, well-travelled disc package design evolved out of a collaborative effort between Stumptown Printers and input from many musicians in response to our earlier “fold-it-yourself” prototypes. With a goal to offer a practical, attractive and environmentally friendly alternative to the then dominating presence of the plastic jewel case, the Arigato Pak was born in September 2002. Rapidly this package design was embraced by touring musicians, and by word of mouth our little Arigato Pak has reached far corners of the globe. Arigato Paks have been folded in the back of tour vans and displayed on our customers’ merch tables from Ankara to Atlanta, Budapest to Buenos Aires.
Whether the release is big or small, hand adorned by our customers on our blank Arigato Paks* or custom printed in volume by the crew here at Stumptown Printers, we’re proud of each cover that rolls off of our presses.
We know that there are a lot of choices out there for album packaging manufacturing, and recognize that it takes extra dedication to locate and work with a print shop such as ours. Like the hands-on approach to our printing and manufacturing, the Arigato Pak design represents a personal connection to your music. Your album cover is the physical representation of all of the heart, energy, and hard work that you put into your music. As fellow musicians and printers who are fans of music, we understand this and we’re honored that you’ve chosen our design to accompany your recording.
Thank you (domo arigato!) for what you do, for keeping it real and for bringing the Arigato Pak along with you on your musical adventures.
* Blank Arigato Paks are offered in the disc and 7" record size. Check out SPBlanks to learn more.
