JSjames let me work on that, i'll make a generic white insert with black title, you guys will need some form of program that uses psd's, to slap in your title

i'll have that finished real soon

here is how i currently label my movies:


not the most flashy way to do it but it get's the job done and is quick

i wish we could find these in silver, i betcha we could all get together and fill a minimum order, somebody maybe should contact someone about that

these cases are made by alpha and are sometimes called "bullet cases" that title lends nothing online, but i have discovered their copyrighted name

these cases are again made by alpha and are named "video capsule" TM

they are on many many websites, we just didn't know the name for them

One of the distributors I deal with carries the Nexpak Alpha Cases, I'll see if they can get the Capsules from your link. No minimum order from them and I had been using the Alphas and getting them for $.40ea. I could probably do even better if I ordered in large quantity. But I haven't got that many tapes yet.

Gary, when are you going to get the LOTR scans up? I'm dying to print them out.

OK folks, I can no longer host all the covers, as you know, but I do have a little space that I will use to host some covers that I have altered myself.

Here it is

On it are masters for the 4 seasons of SOPRANOS, another KILL BILL 2 cover and another PULP FICTION cover. I'll add more as time goes on.

I have a few Alias covers I created (from a template djdrock created for me, thanks!! Actually, he created the whole thing, I just change the episodes).



I put two episodes on each tape and edit the spine of the cover.
I'll send them to Nathan to host.

Any luck on a generic insert? I am trying to get familiar with Photoshop enough to create one, but it is taking longer than I thought.

So where be the LOTR covers?! I'm getting impatient and working on my own!!!

If someone can post a psd of the template i'd greatly appreciate it. I have enough high resolution scans of dvd covers to make some for d-vhs.

I've noticed 2 different versions that you guys are using, I'm liking the one with the black 1080i logo on the spine overlapping a bit.

I can spare some bw to host some of the newer covers, just PM me and I can post a direct link when they are up.

The custom covers at the bottom of this page would be very cool for the DVHS cases. They were done for the DVD's but I think these were also done for the DVD cases that are 1" wide spines. So, it may be easy to convert to DVHS cases.

Great.
What I thought was nice was the image that spanned over the three spines.

Mine won't have that. It's too complicated since FELLOWSHIP is on one tape and TTT Extended is on two.

OK, the covers for FELLOWSHIP and TTT Extended are up.



TTT is a Word file. You need to print it using LEGAL sized paper. The cover is designed specifically for a Double sized VHS case, since mine is on two tapes and not one.

Ditto, here, Nathan!

Lots of content and VERY organized! And thanks to all who have provided the content for all collectors to enjoy!!!

Now, if I could only find covers for Gladiator and the Harry Potter's...

http://daprogger.mine.nu/ has a terrific cover for GLADIATOR. Do a search, then scroll down to the one marked HDTV. It will have to be altered a bit, but it will work great. VERY high quality.
