What can one do to replace one of those cardboard(is that right) cases some of those special edition DVDs come in? For example, Fight Club, Seven, Tombstone, Pearl Harbor, etc?
I ask because I discovered my Unbreakable case had a big gash on it, and I'd like to have it replaced somehow, without having to buy a whole new copy of the DVD. (Yes, I am truly that anal.) :D

I downloaded a replacement cover at http://www.dvdcoverart.com , already sized for a plastic case. Then I ordered a 2-disk slim amaray case from http://www.inetdvd.com. (Actually, I ordered a crapload of cases,all my DVD's must have identical hub-designs, I am so anal)
Then when the cases arrive, slip the 2 disk's into the plastic case (The 2-disk slim amaray is identical to what you get with the signature series of Gladiator, or A.I. Artificial Intelligence DVD, to name a few).
Fight Club has a book you can fit in the case, but Se7en needs a chapter listing download, also available at DVDcoverart.com
If you really wanted a new cardboard box case, I guess you'll just have to buy a new one:frowning:

Here's what you do...

Go to your local video-rental shop and kindly ask them if they would be willing to exchange covers with you. They generally don't care too much about the display boxes, so you have nothing to lose by asking.

Matt, that website rocks... I no longer need to avoid snap-cased titles. Thanks for putting in the hours, dude.

Matt,

That's a great resource you have put together there!

BTW, an excellent paper is Great White Imaging & Photo Paper, which is 37 lb. matte coated on both sides and pretty cheap. You can get it at Office Max and Office Depot. Downside is, as far as I know, it isn't available in 8.5 x 14. Do you have any suggestions for good papers that size?
