Does anyone know where I can get Triple DVD cases that are the size of single cases. I want to buy them in bulk cheap.

I'm also interested in the slim triples.

For double thinpaks, check out tapeandmedia.com.

Thanks Jason,
I have some of those, but they are more the size of double-disc cases, I'm looking for ones the size of a single disc case.

How about using standard slim-double Amarays and using those add-on's that attach to the insert clasps, would that work?

Bump.

Anyone know where to get these slim triples? I don't really care about finding them cheap in bulk. I just want to find the darn things.

As far as I know, no such case exists. What I've seen called "slim triples" are like the cases the MASH sets come in, more the size of a double. I've been thinking about trying what JOLIUM suggested but I'm not sure that will work. Besides, I like my inserts. I've even thought about carving the little flap thing out of a slim double with an exacto knife and glueing it into another slim double. Actually I'd probably have to carve 'em both out to get the positioning just right. That's a lot of work just to fit 3 discs in a single case. Plus if it worked, I'd have to do it over, and over, and over...

No that won't work with a standard Amaray double case. But it will work with the slim double case like the one 'LOTR Two Towers' comes in. I don't know who makes these cases but the add a page unit can be used with these cases giving you a single width triple case.

The amaray double case will not close with the 'Add a Page' unit added.

Here ya go Jess! Scroll down to the 6th item. 10 for $3 , they also have the 'Amaray II' double case which is different than the standard Amaray double.

Just a small warning! The Add-a-Page is made by Amaray but they will also fit Alpha cases with one exception. They DO NOT fit in the Alpha double case (it won't close). Triples and above are OK. They also work in many of the no name cases (but not all).

Yes Jesse, I have a few single width triples in use now. All with cases like the one from 'Two Towers'. I just don't like Alpha cases so I try to eliminate as many as possible. I just made a set of matching covers for 'The Outer limits' that requires a single width triple for season 2. I also modified the cover for 'The Blue and the Gray' also a triple.

Your best bet is wait until you need a few other items so the shipping is more reasonable. Maybe get together with some friends and combine orders. There shipping rates are better than InetDVD.

One other thing to keep in mind is that there's not a whole lot of extra room in there with the add-a-page so if the title has a thick booklet it won't fit very well. Single and double page inserts are no problem but when you get up to an eight page booklet things start getting tight.

Thanks for the info John, I want to use them for Windtalkers, Black Hawk Down, Brotherhood Of The Wolf & Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring Theatrical Version w/ the National Geographic Disc. If the Booklet won't fit i'll just store it elsewhere (Like i've had to do with MIB, Rocky Horror, Scream & Nightmare On Elm Street)

I might pick up some more ThinPAKs from them to make shipping more reasonable.

Wow, that's a fantastic price!
I found some guy on ebay selling them for about $1 each shipped, but the place you listed had them for about 30 cents each. I wish I could find someplace in the US with them that cheap.

I got a load of 1,2, 3, and 3 old style

In my dumpster pulls with the Viper Blue, I don't know If I will ever use them; but I didn't thow them away. I just tried to put them together a normal 2 with a third, it fits but will not be closed by pressure on the case. Don't buy the two thinking you can snap a 3rd one in and close the case. If you don't mind using rubber bands then it would hold the 3 discs together in the slimmer than the old '2' cases I also have. I hope this helps

I ordered some slim triples from eBay and they arrived today. So far I've converted Brotherhood of the Wolf (3-disc collector's edition), Back to the Future Trilogy, Minority Report (2 discs plus an exclusive Best Buy disc that was stuck to the cover), and Cleopatra. Big thumbs up.







I have a lot of extras (since the smallest lot I could find was 50). I'll be willing to sell onesies and twosies from my extras if anyone is interested.

JJE-187, just found your email and replied. Thanks.

BTW, I also have some extra black Nexpak Slim 4's if anyone needs a few of those. The spine is only one inch wide.

Nexpak must have been (or be) doing maintenance on their site, because none of the pictures on their product page are showing now. I did, however, have the picture still in my internet cache, so I copied it to my web server and adjusted the link in the post. Have a look now.
