The Ghost Rider cover looks great. Add a little Blu-ray logo at the bottom spine please, if possible.

That Ghost Rider cover is gonna make me buy that movie on disc.

OK, not really. But almost.

I swear, some of you people should be working for the studios' marketing/advertising departments. Great job man!

I apologize up front for sounding a bit negative, and I really DO appreciate what Evangelo and the contributors are doing but I have sincere doubt.

While the covers look very good on the previews, once blown up to actual resolution they look poor in general. So my question is, how do they look when printed down? Do they look soft or noise like the blown up version, or they look more like the previews, sharp and detailed?

They look much better when put in a slipcase with a semi-glossy cover. I have printed out a few and can't really tell the difference between these and the studio ones. Oh, the only difference would be my inability to cut in a straight line.

They all have a DPI of 300 which is great for printing out.

If we all had the monitors capable of the resolutions in questions, you wouldn't see an issue.

Thanks for the answers, but I'm still not quite sure I figured it out what you mean.

I mean, there are covers that are made from scratch with high resolution images and the typeface has been completely hand made, they look razor sharp even blown out to 300dpi which is the actual resolution. I've even made a few myself

Now my doubt is, the scanned covers or customs that don't use high resolution art can't possibly look like the more soft or noisy scans. I have never tried printing one of these, because I don't have a printer good enough to print them at home. So I gotta take them to a printing house near by, but of course that costs money, and I wouldn't wanna make a blind bet.

So, in short, there's about 2 quite different cover quality standards once visualizing them at actual pixels, so I just can't see how the lesser kind would look just like the original reatil version, once printed.

Thanks again for the answers, hope to hear some more on the issue

Not really. Just because it says 300 dpi doesn't mean the cover is gonna look kick ass. There are a few on the site right now that are 300 dpi and look like total ass.

Deathstalker is right,

I believe all the covers on the site are 300dpi, but that doesn't mean quality. Actually that's exactly the problem with covers that don't look good, low res images blown up to 300dpi


BTW DeathStalker2, did you get my PM?

Both of my T2 and Departed covers are high res. I hope someone printed one out. I would love to see how it came out.

Ghost Rider Remix

WHY? because I can, and also 'cus I asked for a hand out, and got no response.
So I decided to stop begging and start bragging

Evangelo I sent you the cover via e-Mail!

Sorry If I sound bitter.

OH BTW no worries about quality here, since this is far beyond copy and paste. No noise or stretch pictures. Just Grade A, HIGH REZ productions! I tried another but was not please with the stretch poster in the front. So I made my own.

Not necessarily, you can gain free access pretty easily by contributing. By the way, I'm a member of 9 different DVD custom cover sites and all but 1 of them are pay sites of one form or another. Running a site like that's not free and paying around $20 for a year of access to thousands of covers, templates and hi res artwork is a pretty good deal any way you look at it. And ALL the covers at 9covers are hi-quality. Every one of them (HD-DVD, Blu Ray and Standard). They look exceptional when printed out properly.

That being said, it's probably not for everybody. If you can't contribute and think $20 per year is too much to pay for high quality replacement covers, then you're right, you should probably pass.
