YO - is there any service or site I can use to just print out packaging for CDs - but not have to purchase CDs???? I have a way to print some CDs...but can't do professional packaging...odd request, but if anyone knows that'd be hella tight.

It is literally cheaper to do every part of the packaging it yourself. Much more time consuming and a pain in the ass, but cheaper.

This is by far the cheapest and easiest way to distribute CD's with packaging. Not much, but it gets the job done.

D.I.Y. brother it is more affordable.

Here are some helpful tips

Print your cover art at a library/college or invest in a good printer to also print your disc covers. (Don't forget about ink.)
Buy Blank Writable CDs, jewel cases/sleeves online.
Have a computer with CD burner capabilities.
Buy booze or whatever choice of recreational substance you enjoy.
Invite some friends to help.
Listen to your tunes while you package.

This is optional but I recommended having a CD player to check each CD is playable after they are finish burning. This way you won't disrupt the CD burner and so you won't get a dud in production.

Estimated Time of Packaging: Depending on how many CDs you plan to produce and CD length. 25-35 CD's in a hour

This is basically what I did when I packaged a EP 1+ year ago.
