I have already adapted some of these labels to Debian 5.0 "Lenny". Please look here for more information.
This is Free Artwork. Read the copyright-section for more info.
Please click on the thumbnails to view the full size pictures of the CD-Labels
or download them by saving the link-target of the images.
Under the labels you find the appropriate covers in different formats. Click to download them.
The covers are zipped, the format is pdf. Filesize is ~2,5 MB each.

Additional CDs for KDE and Xfce
Gnome is the default desktop environment of Debian. It is contained on the first CD of the set above. There are two additional CDs: You will need them, if you want to make KDE or the lightweight Xfce your default desktop environment; they take care of all the necessary modifications.
When I downloaded the Debian 4.0 "Etch" "iso"-installation-file I missed a nice cover for the CD.
So I created it myself.
Using and adapting the artwork to individual needs
You may use the artwork for any purpose: Maybe your company sells the CDs or DVDs,
maybe you are member of a Free Software Project or you just want to give Debian
away on your Linux-User-Group meeting. So you also might want to modify the
artwork or use it as a start for creating your own CD labels or covers for Debian.
As you see, on the left side of all my labels is already a free space for an individual logo.
But you may as well change the picture behind the white space. In the example file I exchanged my green computer-screen graphics into a foto of a famous hacker. You may perhaps want to take a picture of the city where you live, or your favorite pet or whatever.
To exchange the picture, open the example XCF-file with the Gimp. The program shows a window, where all the different layers, the picture consists of, are listed. Scroll down to layer 2 "EXAMPLE-picture" and paste your own picture into this positon. And voila.
If you need to change the subtitles or add text: The used fontface is the "URW Palladio L". See the copyright section for information how to retrieve this free font. For the subtitle "GNU/Linux "Etch" I used a fontsize of 41 point. The description of the CD is 20pt.
The swirl and the Debian logo are
derived from the "Debian Open Use Logo".
The KDE Logo is subject to the LGPL copyright license. Trading and branding with the KDE Logo is subject to the KDE trademark licence:
The KDE logo can be used freely as long as it is not used to refer to products other than KDE itself. There is no formal procedure to use it.
The typeface for text used in the artwork is the "URW Palladio L".
It is a free substitute for Adobe's "Palatino" also known as Microsofts "Book Antiqua". The authors are URW GmbH, Primoz Peterlin and Walter Schmidt.
