Anyone collects the title labeling sticker for a DVD??

I'm thinking this is pretty crazy because I don't know anyone else around me that does this.

I started buying dvd's in early 2000 and ever since then, i have kept a growing collection of not only my dvd's but their title labeling stickers(on the top) and apply them to the pages inside a notebook. thus you can imagine how much care i must take on ripping off the sticker so not to damage it or break it. now my notebook is filled with hundreds of these stickers.

am I weird or what??

I was doing this for a while when there were buy x get 1 free offers around so that I wouldn't have to cut up any of my DVD cases. Seems that has stopped now, and I just recently tossed a pile of them I had lying around...

Actually, I carefully remove mine and place them inside the front cover, under the insert. I always know which discs are mine. Plus, I got into the habit like rfduncan because I was hoping I wouldn't have to cut up my case for the proof of purchase. Now, it's just habit.

You mean those things that stick to your hand like a booger that won't flick? If this is a poll, give me the Twikoff option

When I was a teenager, I used to cut out the big movie ads in newspapers and tape them onto a notebook page along with the ticket stub from the movie.

I don't collect them as much as I stick them all together in a huge pile . GF thinks I am crazy, and well, she might be right .

I'm surprised someone hasn't started selling these on Ebay yet.

DVD labels are harder to pull off for some reason, but I'm more obsesse about music CD labels. I tend to get the CD on release day, so the the sticker's still fresh, easier to pull off you know.

Wow, I felt silly for clipping articles and reviews about the movies I buy and putting them inside the keepcases....

I like to type the word DVD over and over, print it out, and lick the paper.

After my collection hit 150 or so, I was bored so I started to remove all the security tags inside the cases. I had a nice little ball of 50 or so. At this point, I seriously thought of adding to this "ball-o-stickers" just to see how big of one I could make.

Needless to say, I tossed it after another 20. Maybe I should've keep it up (close to 450 now) and could've posted a cool picture just for this thread

I used to do the same as RDYoung - carefully remove them and place them inside the cover of the DVD, but in the past year or so, it seems that they got harder to remove in one piece, so I gave up on it. What the heck, they aren't good for anything anyway, just a silly thing I did. I can say that I don't miss doing it!

I do keep the stickers. Don't do anything creative with them. I just slap them onto a sheet of paper and scribble some notes like the date of purchase and price. Just a tool for cataloging. Don't take much care of them though. Main objective is to get them off without getting a claw mark on the case.

I put the DVD label on the front cover someplace where it doesn't cover the title or an important part of the cover art.

I collect print-outs of DVD Talk Forum threads with people asking each other if they collect DVD stickers.

I have a little collection of these. actually....my cats do. when I open a new dvd, I wind the plastic wrap into a little ball and "tie" it with strips of stickey. then I toss it on the floor and let the kitties have at'm for a few days. nothing goes to waste around here.

I have been doing that since 1999, I guess. I put them on the outer spine. I throw away the other security stickers though. Although when they first started having the other two stickers I tried but thought that was a little ridiculous and there really wasnt any place to put them.
