    There are so many different types of

    DVD cases that I generally get confused

    by it all.

    I have a friend that got into DVD a year

    ago and made a HUGE mistake.

    He wanted to save room on his shelves so

    he ditched all his original DVD cases and

    put the DVDs in slimmer cd jewel cases. Can

    you believe it?

    A year later he regrets it.

    He has asked me to find the best price on

    plastic DVD cases -- the ones Columbia, Paramount

    and MGM use for their releases.

    He needs a total of 61 cases so a good price

    on such a large quantity is a necessity.

    Anyone have a suggestion? URL links? I'd

    rather just order them off the net.

    Also....

    Is there a place you can download DVD cover

    art and print them on your computer?

    He needs to replace the artwork for all 61 titles.

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    I order all my DVD cases through www.inetdvd.com . They ship pretty fast and have (fairly) reasonable prices. Where they get you is on the shipping charges:
    Amaray DVD cases = $ .59 each
    61 cases = $35.99
    Shipping = $16.93
    Ouch. See what I mean?
    On the other hand I've not found anything better...

    Bags Unlimited (www.bagsunlimited.com) also sells replacement cases dirt cheap, and they're name-brand Amaray and Alphas. I don't have my catalog handy, so I can't give you exact figures. I believe their listed prices include the shipping.
    The Web site stinks, or at least it did last time I went there. Go to the site to get the phone number, then call them up. The people who work there are very helpful.
    I'll dig out my catalog when I get home tonight and post back the prices. It'll be late, though.

    Im wondering if anyone here has bought one of those cases that holds 7 dvd's?. If so let us know how you like them. I may pick them up to put my Star Trek:TOS discs/and farscape discs in to save some space. Then ill just make inserts for the cases and keep the originals in a safe place.

    I could figure this out myself but I'm too lazy: Does anyone know if snapper graphics can be scanned and printed on a single sheet of 8"x11" paper?

    Ronald give the link below to your friend, there he will probably find most of the DVD-covers that he wants.
    I hope this post is of any help, it is my first [​IMG]

    I checked my Bags Unlimited catalog and the prices are a little less than Inet when you factor in the shipping. If you order 50 or more keepcases, they're about $0.73, shipping included. The total for 61 cases is $44.90, shipped.

    The catalog number is CDVD1. These are Amaray cases. You would need to specify black. New York residents need to add 8% sales tax.

    The phone number is (800)767-BAGS.

    Go to Circuit City. They'll have a table with a whole bunch of free AOL CDs, usually in Amray DVD cases. Grab as many as you need.

    Next, go to Home Depot and get a bottle of Goo Gone (usually on display right by the cash register). Goo Gone will get rid of those annoying AOL stickers on your new DVD cases.

    The total for 61 cases is three bucks for the Goo Gone.

    Im thinking of picking up some of the 7 sized dvd cases for ST:TOS and some 5's for Stargate and Farscape. Might as well buy 10 cases since shipping is $5 no matter if you buy 1 or 10 at Inet.

    ThomasD, I've gone that route before. Honestly, for 59¢ per case, I wouldn't go to all the trouble with those stickers-from-hell on the AOL cases!

    I wish that jewel cases had become the standard DVD cases. No, I wouldn't trash my cases, but jewel cases are more shelf friendly and if the disc comes off the hub it can't slide around.

    I'll agree with Thomas on simply snatching up AOL cases, although I've never needed the assistance of Goo Gone to remove the stickers. Perhaps I should trim my fingernails more often.

    I would say go to inetdvd.com, I just got about 20 cases from them (half singles and half 2-disk) for a total or $19 with shipping. The cases are factory fresh and save a lot of time over trying to remove labels. Now I just have to get all my cover art printed so I can swap out my snappers=)
