First of all, let me apologize to the original creator of this artwork. The source pdf file got seperated from the folder with the name of who I downloaded it from so I lost track of the creator. But I thank you. My small contribution is nothing more than basic rearranging and miniscule modification of your outstanding work to meet my particular needs.

UPDATE: Thanks to RoccondilRinon for the original source material. Thanks again!

My 6 disc M-disc set of the NJVC blu-rays did not have room in the case for a very thick booklet with all the details. So I trimmed down the excellent 12-page one into a more compact 4-page versions with just the info I personally needed in my set. I was also having difficulty getting a good 2 sided print, likely due to my cheap photo paper. So I rearranged the 4 pages so that I could fold a bly-ray size booklet from just a single sided photo print. I just thought I would share it in case somebody else could benefit.

Foldable Print

Lessons learned when creating booklet: Letter size works OK but A4 paper gives a better match to blu-ray insert clips. Fold top to bottom, then side to side. Fold first, flatten seams, (tape), then cut to size along unfolded edges so that any misalignment from folding is on the cut off portion. Use double sided tape to conceal/join uprinted sides to make it appear as though booklet was 2 sided print from thicker stock. Cover booklet with a blank sheet of paper when using a hard object run along seams to set the folds so that you don’t damage your print job. Using a black sharpie along the cut edges does conceal the white but it’s inconsistent and softens/swells the edge. Live with the white if you can stand it (IMHO).
