    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.) [​IMG]

    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[​IMG]

    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?
