DVD Covers and Labels

I am looking for a quality site to replace my exact Region 1 DVD covers and DVD labels - not necessarily customs - tho sometimes I like customs also. I have read most of the threads here and didn't find any sites that have exactly what I need.

http://www.covers.to/index.php - has some ok stuff, yet mostly foreign or custom.

http://www.covertarget.com/ - generally not such great quality and mainly foreign (non R1)

http://www.cdcovers.cc/ - generally not such great quality and mainly foreign (non R1)

http://www.r1db.com/board/private.php - had DVD Covers and I don't mind paying for them, yet it doesn't have DVD labels as far as I can tell.

Can anyone direct me to where they get their DVD Covers and labels so that I might replace a few of mine that are past their prime?

Most of the major sites privilege customs over scans since they represent a much higher artistic achievement. True cover enthusiasts prefer customs since it is about creating something different and/or better than the predictable studio covers. Since basically any idiot can scan a cover, that's not exactly something that gets our juices flowing so to speak. And disc labels tend to be frowned upon since they have no legitimate purpose beyond labeling illegal copies.

Ah. All makes sense. Thank you for the reply.

What joliom said. Scans typically are a last resort if there is no custom for a title. Some view scans as they do labels. Just an easy tool for illegal copies so they can look just like the one you buy in the store.
