    I use Lexmark semi gloss photo 8.5x11in. Works like a charm.

    Love the Dr. No image. I don't think there has been a set of Bond release that utilized the poster images since the first round of video cassettes (and CEDs) in the mid-1980s.

    Terrific work.

    Thanks, but I can't take all the credit. This style/design was originally created by Charles de Lauzirika (aka Zinema) for the DVD releases several years ago. I've done the covers for the last 3 films, and am now just reworking his original covers for the Blu-ray releases.

    When I first got started on custom covers I wanted to get a laser printer. Prices on those made it too much for what was to be a passing hobby. I ended up getting an HP Deskjet D4160 and it handles custom covers very well. You'd never know these were not professionally done. I use "photo smart" ink instead of "black" and Vivera inks, which are recommended for my printer.

    Very nice work, Matt. I'm especially happy with how the continuous 007 on the spines have more or less graphically rebooted with "Casino Royale," appropriately enough. The blue tint is also a nice touch. Thanks for taking over, and for doing it so well!

    Thanks Charles, I very much appreciate hearing that, esp from you. Though I must confess, the '007' spine logo positioning was simply a product of resizing to fit the available space, with only minor tweaking by me.

    Great work, Matt! I look forward to having a full set on my shelves.

    One dumb question - these are designed for the thin (c.1cm width) cases, right?

    Thanks, Matt. Here in the UK, most Blu-ray discs are sold in cases the same width as standard DVD cases.

    I prefer the thin ones, myself!

    This is EXACTLY what I want for my Bond collection. Seriously, you are making my month with these.

    I LOVE the oldschool Bond artwork so much (especially the Moore era, which is just fantastic) ... I am even looking into getting a new printer for these suckers.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks so much for these (to Matt and Charlie) - the covers are awesome. Now I need a new printer or to find somewhere that will print them for me!
