Any cover that is under 150dpi is not really fit for quality printing. So please use you own discretion before printing out any cover!

Feel free to post cover requests and links to other covers in this thread.

A few questions:

First, does anyone know if the ORIGINAL case for Highlander Endgame Ultimate Collection was red? I picked up a used one in a red (double) case in bad shape, and I was just wanting to make sure the disc originally came in a red case.

Second, DVDcoverart.com is down, it appears, and I was wondering if anyone would have a good scan of Shrek? My brother picked up a previously viewed DVD from a local grocery store's video department, and doesn't have the cover for this DVD.

I'm considering swapping put my snapper cases. So, what is the best type of paper to use. I want the new inserts to look authentic. Same gloss, thickness, etc. I know, I know, I'm picky. I just don't want them to look like I printed them at home.

Here's a copy of an email Matt (webmaster of DVDCoverArt) sent me

Chris,

I hope to have the site back up soon, but I need to
find a new host first (current one is not cooperating
unfortunately).
my friend who was going to be helping me with the web
dev part of the site has been really busy lately, so
I'm not sure how much I'll be able to tap him as a
resource. I definitely want to move to a system which
requires user accounts and is able to prevent one
person from using an obscene amount of bandwidth.
the site will defintely not disappear, though it may
take longer to reappear than in the past when similar
problems occured.

regards,
Matt

So we just have to be patient.
Chris

A Gettysburg cover would be nice. If you get hold of one drop me line I'd be interested in that as well.

Currently I'm looking for the Karate Kid Trilogy, Point Break (DTS), and The Replacement Killers: Special Edition. Actually, customs of any of these would be great too. Anything to get them boxed and put back on the shelf!

Here's a custom cover I made for the Jurassic Park Trilogy for a 4-disc case (including the bonus disc). It could easily be modified to fit a three disc case (I could modify it for you if you want). Parts of this design were created using elements from the custom Jurassic Park covers on dvdcoverart.com.

You can download the hi-res version here (http://wobwenk.com/coverscans/jp_trilogy.jpg).

Total Movie & Entertainment Double Double Feature Pack

Total Movie & Entertainment Double Double Feature Classic Movie Masterpieces

Intolerance (1916) Movie Synopsis: Intolerance is considered the greatest film of the silent era, and may well be the greatest film ever made. It has gained this reputation due to its influence on other filmmakers, an influence that has become film grammar itself. The man behind the film, D.W. Griffith, is the acknowledged master of cinematic storytelling, the first American director to elevate the movies to the level of serious art.
More than 50 years after Griffith's death, there is little question of the brilliance of his films. Without him, cinema would not be what it is today. His work has influenced every important director who has come since, and any list of the world's great film directors must begin with the name D.W. Griffith. As Griffith himself - never one for false modesty - said: "Remember how small the world was before I came along. I brought it all to life; I moved the whole world onto a 20-foot screen."
Genre: Drama Theatre Release: 1916

Battleship Potemkin (1925) Movie Synopsis: When you think of the handful of films that are at the core of cinema history, you think of D.W. Griffith's The Birth Of A Nation, Orson Welles' Citizen Kane - and Sergei Eisenstein's silent film, The Battleship Potemkin. Back in 1925, the immediate worldwide success of The Battleship Potemkin focused attention on the Soviet cinema while earning its creator instant, lasting fame. Before the end of the decade, Eisenstein's contributions to the artform (along with those of two other filmmakers, Alexander Dovzhenko and V.I. Pudovkin) would push the Soviet cinema to the forefront of the international film scene.
The Battleship Potemkin evolved from a film project assigned to Eisenstein by the Soviet Central Committee in charge of planning celebrations for the 20th anniversary of the unsuccessful 1905 Russian Revolution. Eisenstein initially conceived of the film as an eight-part epic, titled The Year of 1905 (or Year 1905), to be set throughout the Soviet Union and chronicle dozens of revolutionary actions. As he was shooting in Odessa, he decided to narrow his concept and focus on a sole event - a mutiny by a battleship's crew and the subsequent massacre of civilians - that reflected the spirit of the times.
Genre: Drama Theatre Release: 1925

The General (1927) Johnnie Gray has two loves in his life: his engine and his girl, Annabelle Lee. The War Between the States begins with an attack on Fort Sumter, and Johnnie is the first in line at the recruitment office. But the enlisting officer rejects him (not telling him the reason: he is more valuable to the South as an engineer). Annabelle believes he didn't even try to enlist, and she refuses to even speak to him until he is in uniform. Time passes and Union spies hatch a plot involving Johnnie's engine, The General. Not only do they steal The General while Johnnie and the passengers are off the train having dinner, but they kidnap Annabelle who was still on board. Johnnie pursues The General in another engine, The Texas. Through various mishaps he becomes the Unionists' sole pursuer. When the Unionists discover the train chasing them has only one man aboard, the long pursuit ends, and Johnnie barely escapes with his life. Johnnie is now behind enemy lines. He wanders the forest during a rainstorm then discovers a house, which he breaks into, grabbing what food he can. It turns out the Unionists who stole The General are using the house as a base of operations. While hiding under the dinner table, Johnnie learns the details of their next plot against the Confederates. More importantly, he discovers they have Annabelle Lee, whom he had never guessed was still on The General when it was taken. Johnnie manages to escape with Annabelle and take back The General. Now the Unionists are pursuing Johnnie, but if he and Annabelle can outrace them they can warn the Confederates of the Union's latest plan.
Genre: Drama Theatre Release: 1927

Total Movie & Entertainment Double Double Feature Classic Tales

Farewell to Arms (1932) Movie Synopsis: Ernest Hemingway's tragic wartime romance comes to vivid life in this classic 1932 film starring Oscar winners Gary Cooper (Pride Of The Yankees) and Helen Hayes (Airport) and co-starring Adolphe Menjou. The cataclysm of WWI sets the stage for an impassioned story of star-crossed love between a daring American ambulance driver (Cooper) braving death at the front lines and an English nurse (Hayes) in an army hospital. The tumult of war conspires to push the pair together and then wrench them apart in what becomes an ultimate test of love.
Based largely on Hemingway's own experiences in The Great War, A Farewell To Arms was the first of the author's novels to reach the screen and enthralled movie audiences with its heart-rending romance and the realistic visions of battle. The startling imagery was captured by renowned director Frank Borzage and photographed in luminous black and white by Charles B. Lang, who won an Academy Award for his artistry. Due in part to censorship codes of the day, this theatrical version of the film has seldom been seen and was thought lost.

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (1920) Movie Synopsis: The story of a man's battle with his own evil self is an ancient, archetypal one, and Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde, published in 1886, is a timeless Victorian interpretation that captures the imaginations of modern audiences like no other. It combines fantastical "science," the misty, gaslit streets of old London and the supernatural to create an atmosphere of horror that is both chilling and thought provoking. Of the many filmed adaptations of this book, only three stand out: The 1932 version, for which Fredric March won the Best Actor Academy Award, the 1941 version starring Spencer Tracy, and the 1920 John Barrymore version featured on this DVD. The transfer has been painstakingly colored to match the original tinting of the release print. The disc also includes an excerpt from the 1911 version of the film.

Scrooge (1935) Movie Synopsis: Restored at last to its full length, this striking adaptation of Charles Dickens' holiday classic is notable not only for its beautiful story but also for superb performances, a vigorous script, excellent pacing, persuasive settings, costumes which utterly capture 1843 London, and impressive moving-camera photography with atmospheric lighting reminiscent of German expressionist cinema. Sir Seymour Hicks, an age-appropriate Scrooge, first played the role on screen in 1913 and delivers a first-class performance; he also co-authored the screenplay and inhabits Scrooge thoroughly, subtly and radiantly. The other characters are secondary but all impeccable, including Donald Calthrop (familiar from his roles in several of Alfred Hitchcock's British films), Maurice Evans, and rotund Oscar Asche as the unforgettably fruity Ghost of Christmas Present. Director Henry Edwards was honored for his work with a prize at the 1935 Venice Film Festival; also note the gifted hand of production supervisor John Brahm, a veteran of German theater and cinema and later director of other fine films including the similarly atmospheric "The Lodger." A wonderful film that would have made Charles Dickens proud!

Unforgettable scenes of Jerry in drag at the USO and, of course, the barracks Coke machine that thinks it is a one-armed bandit.

Dressed to Kill (1946) Movie Synopsis: Dressed To Kill awakened memories of the Holmes of literature. Watson refers to the latest edition of The Strand Magazine and its publication of "Scandal in Bohemia." It didn't matter that original publication of this story took place in 1891, for producer/director Neill always made sure to merge the contemporary with the whimsical and decidedly more evocative past, a symbiosis that was part of the allure of the Universal films. This time, Holmes is up against Hilda Courtney, played by the sweetly beautiful Patricia Morison, a New York-born actress who specialized in exotic types in a mostly B-movie film career. It may seem curious that Holmes faced several "femme fatales" in his Universal days, but beautiful wicked women who led men to their doom were the rage in Hollywood, and pitting them against a man like Holmes seemed quite challenging, though the outcome of such a "battle of the sexes" was foreordained by Holmes' lack of sexual interest. Dressed To Kill was destined to be the last of the Holmes Universals. Four Holmes films were in the planning stages when Rathbone stunned the film community and the public by refusing to renew his contract. Likewise, he chose not to renew his contract for the Sherlock Holmes radio series, which expired around the same time. Simply put, after portraying the masterful detective more than two hundred times in seven years (primarily on radio), Rathbone was immensely tired of the role. Besides, he craved returning to his real love, the theater, and moved to New York soon after to pursue his goal.

The Stranger (1946) Movie Synopsis: After having made three commercial disasters in a row, Orson Welles was badly in need of a hit in Hollywood. The result was The Stranger.

Robinson as Wilson, a Nazi hunter assigned the task of finding the infamous Franz Kindler, one of the architects of the genocide of the Jews. Wilson trace Kindler to the sleepy college town of Hartford, Connecticut, where he comes to suspect that Professor Charles Rankin (Welles) is actually Kindler hiding behind a new identity.

Meet John Doe (1941) Movie Synopsis: Over half a century since its initial release, Frank Capra's Meet John Doe remains an incredibly powerful motion picture, thanks to not only Capra, but to a great cast and a powerful narrative. But, despite its widespread popularity, Capra was never really satisfied with the ending, which he felt had been dictated by the fact that he and screenwriter Robert Riskin had written themselves into a corner. With its close parallel to the Christ tale, Meet John Doe practically mandated that Gary Cooper give up his life to resurrect the "John Doe" movement for the sake of all the "little guys" who had put their faith in him. But, the audiences of 1941 wouldn't tolerate a Cooper suicide, and Capra eventually shot six endings before settling on the one seen here. But, the picture was so well received, the New York Critics--who had ignored all of what Capra regarded as his true classics--gave Meet John Doe a coveted spot on their annual "Top Ten" listing. Go Figure. With Meet John Doe, Frank Capra was warning the complacent democracies of the perceived threat of Fascism to his adopted America from both without and within. His warnings initially went unheeded. But only a few months into the release of Meet John Doe, Pearl Harbor had been bombed, America was united, Capra had rushed through the shooting of Arsenic And Old Lace (which had begun December 1, 1941), and was in the Army overseeing the Why We Fight films, the most stunning series of documentaries ever produced.

The trail leads to a society of hypnotists and a mysterious, glamorous woman. The fiendish Dr Moriarty, though reported hanged in Montevideo, is believed to be involved. Blackmail, hypnotism, and murdered women with missing fingers are the main elements of this installment of the Sherlock Holmes series. Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce star as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.
Genre: Mystery / Suspense Theatre Release: 1945

Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon (1942) Movie Synopsis: The second Holmes film in the legendary series from Universal, Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon (1943) solidified the updating of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's consulting detective after Twentieth-Century-Fox abandoned its Victorian Holmes series after two films. Even Holmes' old nemesis, Professor Moriarty, last seen in Fox's The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1939), was back, this time aiding Nazis in their plan for world domination. Screen villain Lionel Atwill took over the role from George Zucco, infusing his toad-like character with an unrepentant sadism that still shocks today. Dennis Hoey (the third most recognized face in the Universal Holmes films, after Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce) made his first appearance in the series as the ineffectual but endearing Inspector Lestrade. Most significantly, The Secret Weapon was the first Holmes film helmed by Roy William Neil. Neil, born Roland de Gostrie on a boat off the Irish coast in 1887, displayed a fine directorial eye in previous assignments, notably the Boris Karloff chiller, The Black Room (1935). Neil injected the Holmes series with some striking imagery and camera work, all the while suffusing the puzzling mysteries with an atmospheric dream of curling pipe smoke, night fog, wet streets, brash pubs, and a surprising gruesomeness that spoke of a love of horror. Of the dozen Holmes films in the Universal series, Neil directed all but the first one. He also contributed to the scripts in a chiefly unaccredited capacity, and served as producer to 10 of the films. As if summoned to the resting-place of his greatest cinematic efforts, Neil died seven months after the release of the last of the Rathbone/Bruce films.

I Bury the Living (1958) Movie Synopsis: Edgar Allan Poe would have truly appreciated this "crisp little chiller" (Leonard Maltin) howlingly haunted with "dire happenings and eerie effects bound to please the spook set" (The Film Daily). Starring rugged Hollywood leading man Richard Boone (TV's Have Gun Will Travel) and folk singer Theodore Bikel as a dynamic duo of death, this electrifying shocker may send you to an early grave - if it's not already occupied. When a cemetery director (Boone) puts pins on a map of empty graves, the grave owners mysteriously die, driving the director crazy and real estate prices sky-high. But there is something more devilishly demented behind the deaths - and digging for answers uncovers a most horrifying climax.
Genre: Horror Theatre Release: 1957

God Told Me To (1976) Movie Synopsis: The story line of this movie involves a series of motiveless murders committed by various New York residents: a sniper shoots people from a water tower; a father murders his entire family; and a cop (Andy Kaufman) opens fire during a St. Patrick's Day parade. The only consistent pattern to the crimes involves the perpetrators calm admissions of guilt, explaining, "God told me to." While investigating the murders, catholic police detective Peter Nicholas (Tony Lo Bianco) is increasingly troubled by evidence of a Christ-like figure named Bernard Phillips (Richard Lynch) who appeared to each of the killers and can't seem to shake the feeling that his own fate is somewhat linked to this mysterious being. As he comes closer to the truth, his worst fears are confirmed.

White Zombie (1932) Movie Synopsis: The Halperin Brothers made White Zombie in just 11 days back in 1932, with $50,000 (Bela Lugosi got less than $1,000 to play zombie master Murder Legendre), on sets left standing from Universal's Dracula and Frankenstein. Keeping dialogue to a minimum, they wisely let cameraman Arthur Martinelli cut loose on this odd fairy tale, avoiding the stagy, static feel that pervades most early Talkies, White Zombie doesn't tell us a story when it can show us one.
One of the most visually interesting horror films ever made, White Zombie has been slighted by videotapes made from scratched, faded 16mm prints. Two 35mm prints were used for this DVD, making as clean and crisp a White Zombie as you'll ever see.

Herk Harvey's macabre masterpiece gained a cult following on late night television and has been bootlegged for years. Made by industrial filmmakers on a modest budget, Carnival Of Souls was intended to have the look of a Bergman and feel of a Cocteau, and succeeds with its strikingly-used locations and spooky organ score.

I have a few questions on printing a cover. I am using the scan of Shrek that rknewbow graciously provided me, it is 2.8 MB (3240x2175x24b jpeg,) and I have some 8 1/2 x 11 HP photo matte paper. I downloaded both Cover XP free, and Cover Print from the links listed in the first of this thread, but I couldn't find any DVD case on Cover Print, and Cover XP had an error when printing.

My questions are:
How do I print this out (and is there a way to do it without Cover XP or Cover Print)
what settings do I use for my printer (HP,)
do I need 8 1/2 x 14 instead of 8 1/2 by 11 (and can I tape some scrap paper to the paper I have,)
and anything else you think I should Know before printing. :D

I have a few questions on printing a cover. I am using the scan of Shrek that rknewbow graciously provided me, it is 2.8 MB (3240x2175x24b jpeg,) and I have some 8 1/2 x 11 HP photo matte paper. I downloaded both Cover XP free, and Cover Print from the links listed in the first of this thread, but I couldn't find any DVD case on Cover Print, and Cover XP had an error when printing.

My questions are:
How do I print this out (and is there a way to do it without Cover XP or Cover Print)
what settings do I use for my printer (HP,)
do I need 8 1/2 x 14 instead of 8 1/2 by 11 (and can I tape some scrap paper to the paper I have,)
and anything else you think I should Know before printing. :D


I print with Paint Shop Pro (demo downloaded at www.jasc.com)

As long as the covers are 3240 x 2175 pixels and 300dpi, you should be able to print at 100% on legal-sized paper landscape mode. Do a print preview to see how it will come out. And don't bother with glossy paper, because the clear plastic of the keepcase will make it look shiney anyways. I use Ultra or Super Bright White 8.5" x 14" legal paper and the colours come out strongly if I set my Ink Jet printer to Photo Quality Ink Jet. Those without legal sized paper can tape a thin strip of paper onto a letter-sized sheet to extend the reach of the printer, but tell the program you're printing on Legal Size. It's important to do a Print Preview!

Covers should be 10.8" x 7.25" and 300dpi (3240 x 2175).
If not, under the Paint Shop Pro Image menu is a Resize command where you should make adjustments to the actual print size.

In the words of Steve Martin "What the Hell is that"??? Take a close look at your originals and see if you can figure it out ?

that's the area of the reflective surface blade is standing on between the end of his cape and the start of its shadow. if you look closely there is nothing wrong with it...

All the Criterion cases I own are made by Alpha, single and double-wide.

Criterion has used a variety of DVD cases of different makes, including but not limited to, Amaray, Alpha, the claw of death type (as used by Universal Studios at one time) and Scanavo.

However, Criterion uses Amaray and Alpha the most.

What I saw when I first looked at this was Snipes in a kneeling (one knee down one up) position. From that point of view the light patch would be cutting across his right leg just above his downed knee.

You have forced this locked impression out of my mind and I can now invision his right leg outstretched behind him. It is not that clear however and what we are dealing with is almost like the different readings of an ink blot.

Now I know what the hell that was! I think I'll leave it out nevertheless.

Which custom cover were you refering to? I have done a keepcase conversion very similar to Rouge's, and you can download the high-rez version here (http://wobwenk.com/coverscans/grease.jpg).

That yellow seal was the trick! It's printed on the original cover. The origianl spine was cut off so the two halfs would fit in a standard keepcase and there was a small amount of damage to the top portion of the spine area. <center><img src=http://home.earthlink.net/~jkelley11/johnf14/missionold.jpg><center>==================<center><img src=http://home.earthlink.net/~jkelley11/johnf14/mission.jpg>

Anyone hate some of their covers and want something done about it? It seems there are many artists who know their way around Photoshop who could help you, so I think it would be a good idea to post requests for more attractive "original" covers.

I'll send it to DVDCoverart when it's back up, but I'll leave it on my server for a while. I've got plenty of space so I'm in no hurry to take it down.

Rusty,

Im still in the dark ages with only a 56K line and only a small amout of webspace provided by my ISP. But I did squeeze the 6+MB 'West Side Story' cover on. I won't be able to keep it up long, however. so get it as soon as you can. Let me know if it works out, I've never done this before.

Hey Everybody I am new to the forum as of about 10 mins ago, but i have been lurking around checking out all the cool stuff everyone's been posting. I've also been a big fan of Matt's kick ass DVD cover art site. I sent Matt my Pitch Black: Director's Edition Cover which he posted before the site went down recently. Matt, I'd like to thank you doing us all a great service with your site, hopefully it will be up soon again.

Also, hopefully tonight, I will be posting a link to my 2 month long pain in the booty Fellowship of the Ring: Ultimate Edition Cover. A seven disc set which fits the Alpha seven disc case which i got off of InetDVD (http://www.inetdvd.com) .

I will also post pics of what my case looks like with the finished product.

But i do have a question here on my first post, I am gonna be starting SW Episode 1 & 2 Covers featuring the orginal poster art. What font is used for the Sub Titles on the covers which say "The Phantom Menace"& "Attack of the Clones" Also if you guys know what font they use for the "I" and "II" on the covers I would greatly appretiate it. I can't find the font on my cpu, I have almost 400 and trying to find the thing is mindboggling for me right now.

Thanks guys... Eric / AskewedJunkie
The font is called EPISODE 1. I think you can get it here....www.galacticempire.co.uk
it's a pretty common font to find. I use this font to make my original trilogy covers that match TPM and AOTC.
Interestingly enough I made a ViewAskew cover not too long ago that fits a 7-Disc Alpha case.....I'm curious to see yours. That was one of the first customs I did and I wasn't really happy with the results......If you want to see my custom Star Wars to see the font go to www.customcoverart.com.
If you can't find the font let me know and I'll email it to you.

I need some Help.
I have decided to switch all of my snappers to keep cases.The problem is my scanner is not big enough to scan a whole cover.It always cuts off about and inch.I am not good enough on the pc to be able to scan both halves and splice them together.

So if someone has one of the below titles already scaned in or a custom one made up, would you drop me an e-mail?I need the covers and the inside Chapter Listings.
Just e-mail this file to me or the address where I can get it.
All Help is appreciated.
