Animatrix case is crap. What can we do?

I have never seen a cheaper case on any store-bought dvd. Ever. This is just a cardboard snap case, but it doesn't even have a snapping mechanism on it. The cardboard cover just kind of lays open, and the black plastic does the same thing. This thing is such a piece of crap.

I bought this at Electronics Boutique, preorder. Is anyone else carrying this in a different type of case? If not, is there anything else I can do to get this dvd into a better case?

Update: Being a newbie to the case/cover art switcheroo, I d/l'd a replacement cover from dvdcoverart.com and took it to Costco to have a nice prinoout made. It was beautiful, and too big for our keep case.

The slightly good news is that we just didn't push our case closed hard enough and it does actually latch. I don't like the snap case, but it'll do until I can get a prinout that fits the blank keep case we have.

That's odd. They are sized to fit keepcases....The file should have been 3240 x 2175 pixels @ 300dpi.

That's what I thought too. The file properties list it at 3240 x 2175 and I specifically told the lady at Costco that I wanted the image to be printed at it's own regular size (no enlargements or anything), but it's about an 1 1/2 inches to big vertically and horizontally.
