I'm running out of space so I'm looking for thin cases for my DVDs that I can still put the original cover art into.

Anyone have a source for me ?

What's a DVD?

Sorry, Art. I couldn't help myself.

See ya. Dave

Of course you will have to fold or cut the sides of your original cover art because of the slimmer case.

Just a thought, but I think the price for all those replacement jackets starts making a Sony Mega-changer, HT-PC or a popcorn hour box start to look attractive.

I desrve that but I have hundreds of films on DVD, that I enjoy, that will never see BD, unfortunately. I give my DVDs away if I have a BD of the film.

Sorry if this is a bit off-topic, but I think it's related to your issue, albeit indirectly. With regards to maximizing limited shelf space (something I can relate to) -apart from trying to find slimmer cases- I've consolidated many of my movies into single multiple-disc cases (such as Kill Bill, Iron Man, Resident Evil, etc). In fact, I used the 6-disc LOTR theatrical case to put my LOTR extended films into, and simply stored the original box along with the additional dvd extras elsewhere.

At this point, I've gone as far as storing all my DVDs and HD-DVDs in modular album-type sleeve organizers, which happen to fit on my existing shelf nicely. If guests are curious about what titles are in my 'library', I have a nicely formatted HTML document they can scan through (exported from my movie library database), which also includes digital content stored on my PC.

Discsox DVD-Pro sleeves. They hold all of the paperwork and no cutting required. They'll even hold cardboard outer wrappers in most cases, and they work with the old WB half-cardboard cases as well. They're designed for two discs, and you can fit a third in by putting it in a paper envelope (to avoid scratches) and slipping it into the front artwork pocket.

They're flexible sleeves rather than hard plastic cases, though. An advantage over using a sleeve-style binder is that you can still browse and handle them individually. You can store DVDs in 1/4 or even 1/5 the space this way.
