New Arem limited edition release is record sleeve packaging with handmade printed QR Code poster … with no physical record inside. From Creative Review:
The latest release from musician Stay+ comes in a record sleeve-size package that contains no music format whatsoever. Instead, the highly limited transparent acrylic sleeves contain a foldout, 50inch QR code screen print that leads the buyer to a download page online…
Each sleeve is made from 4mm transparent acrylic made to the same size and template as a standard 12” card record sleeve - even the fold over flaps.
Inside, the folded QR code insert is printed on specially manufactured newsprint, made to size.
Over at Arem’s website, you can see a video of how each piece of packaging was made:
