Repackaging discs from a box set.

I'm really considering the recent Friday the 13th boxset, but I heard that the packaging sucks. I want to be able to repackage the discs into slim keepcases. The only issue is the artwork. Any tips?

Re: Repackaging discs from a box set.

Exactly which boxed set? There are many web sites that cater to custom covers. Have you tried some web searches? I recommend also visiting http://www.r1db.com . They not only have a large collection of 300dpi covers, but also have a forum for requesting new covers from their Photoshop-savvy users. There is a cost, though, roughly .90/cover I believe. Hope that helps.

I'm talking about the one titled "The Collection" that's about 35 dollars on Amazon. Are there any free cover sites that work for this or is this the best one?

Re: Repackaging discs from a box set.

Unfortunately, r1db is the only site I have some familiarity with, excluding cdcovers.cc, whose covers are generally very low-res. I did check both for custom covers for your 8-disk Collection (neither had any, but r1db had several for 10, 11, and 12-disk sets) and then noticed your set was released less than 2 months ago. There have been so many other releases, it could be too soon to expect something without voicing some demand. Devote an hour to web searching and you may be surprised at what you find. But it all else fails, there's the r1db forum, and certain 10 and 11-disk covers might be adaptable to 8 disks (i.e. black out the references to disks 9+ yourself). Or maybe someone else has a better idea?
