That's more or less what happened back in 2000 when I was in charge of CD 
sales for the Ken Colyer Trust. I used to order up several hundred of Big 
Bill Bissonnett's (sp?) Jazz Crusade CD's at a time. Bill sent just the CD's 
and inlays to keep his postage costs down, I bought the jewel cases here and 
Julie and I spent many 'happy' hours loading the cases with CD and card. 
After the first 5 or so we became like automatons with the repetative 
actions - it's very good for hand/eye co-ordination !!
