Would anyone be interested in having a discussion on D-VHS coverart? I always make custom covers for my collection, and wanted to know if there were many others interested in this as well.

Glad to see someone else is excited about this movie coming to HDNet next month. I too have been working on some coverart for this flick. Here is my work... Had to recreate the logo for the spine and did some other photoshop work to get it done.

Yes, I make custom stick labels for the top of the tape, but not the spine.


I have never tried to make them the silver metalic look. I do recall on dvdcoverart.com (now defunct) that there is a silver paper that is available. I never bought any though.

Brajesh...very nice job. I love it!


I just completed my cover for "The Rainmaker", and am pleased that it is being played in the OAR. Woo Woo! This cover was a bit of a booger because again, I had to locate the fonts for the the spine. The font is very very close.

I agree, that a tracer program might be quicker, but I have just always tried locating the fonts.


"Blow Out"? When is this on in HD?

When I make my covers for my recordings from Starz HD and Sho HD ect, I simply download a VHS cover form any online store, cut and paste, edit on paint and wellah a cover!

You Guys are so lucky to be able to get this stuff, living in the UK I can only get the D-Theater stuff imported.

would love to get my hands on some off this off air stuff.

The cover arts are great

Here is my attempt at a cover for "Dutch." I had to use my VHS envelope...

All these covers look great, but isn't it quite time consuming to do them ?

It would be nice to be able to look up every movie somewhere and just print out the correct envelope - wishful thinking I guess :)

It's definitely time-consuming, but making covers is as much a hobby & collecting movies (to me anyway).

Some of the covers can be done in a short amount of time. It just depends on source material availability. Some can take several hours. Either way, it is fun. Like Brajesh said, it is part of the hobby!
