Apple shipped CD bundles in cardboard envelope packages up until 2003 when they began using clear plastic bags. In 2004, they were using both types of packaging. The examples here show a white cardboard envelope with a light gray Apple logo and a clear plastic software bundle package.

Also note that by 2004 Apple has mostly switched to using the Myriad Apple font for products, but the Apple Garamond font is still appearing in rare situations.
