"Not-quite-so-slim" cases?

I've moved some of my DVDs into regular slim cases (I'm guessing 7mm?) and due to the way the fonts are done on some of the artwork, it looks kinda bad. Is there a type of case that's slimmer than the regular cases but not as slim as slimcases?

Not as far as I know. Yes, slim DVD cases are typically around 7mm and standard keep cases around 14mm. In-between would be 10-11mm, and the only cases I know in that range are for Blu-Ray.

if you're printing out your own cases, you'll be better off re-setting the text in a more readable typeface for the spine.

I use 7mm cases for everything I put in a custom case (except multi-disc sets), and I almost always use a bold sans serif typestyle for the spine.
