Yeah, it should work, but not with the slip case version.

If you didn’t have card stock to create the slipcases, what did you use?

It’s not card stock. It’s chip board. This is thick, thick stuff. You can buy it on Amazon…

Would this work with your original box do you think?

Blu-Ray and other HD box size STAR WARS covers

Here’s my latest set. The covers all use Mike Mitchell’s profile portraits. Unfortunately, it probably won’t be completed as a set, as he’s never done any portraits of the prequel characters.

I’ve posted the covers below, but interiors and disc art can be found at the link:

Thanks. In case you didn’t notice, I did update the original trilogy covers with different backs that are even closer to the original posters.

Any local print shop will do these. You’d just have to supply double-sided glossy paper;don’t use the shop’s crappy paper. Print 100% on 8.5" x 11" and allow full bleed. The interior art will bleed off the edges and covers just barely fit. Make sure you print with crop marks on at 100%.

Best,
Ron

Back after a break. While I’m not planning on releasing the art for my box sets, I did promise to upload the sleeve art. Here are the cases, interiors and disc art from my box set. I’m also including prequel and sequel covers.

Below are a preview of just the covers, but ALL the art can be found at this link:

I’ve lingered here for a few years, joined a while ago, and this is my first post. I am doing so for two reasons. One to express how awesome your artwork is, and the fact that it was pirated AND sold is just disgraceful and disgusting. My sympathies for that.
Second, I finally am getting around to creating my own box set, and rather than use the art someone else provided I decided to make my own. Especially since this happened to your set and I would hate to use another case someone else made that may or may not be from said actual person posting it. But, that’s it. Your work is awesome, and it inspired me to get off my lazy arse and create my own. Cheers, mate!

Thanks so much. Very kind of you to say. I will someday post the sleeves (but not the box).

But that said, the kind of slow down you’re describing sounds like the throttling effect that happens when you have downloaded a large amount of data.

Maybe try waiting a day or two to give your isp quota a chance to recharge?

And are you waiting about 6-8 hours between sets of ten files to prevent such throttling in the first place?

That could very well be it. I HAVE been downloading the files in order and since everything was fine until the TESB extras, it could be my ISP throttling my usage. Good call!

I only download during the day though, so I’ve been giving it at LEAST 8 hours rest every night… more during the week since I’m at work during the day. Perhaps they’re throttling based on overall usage?

Why didn’t you use harmys documentary on Despecialized

Because I’ve always wanted a perfect encapsulation of the original movies. I don’t want to acknowledge the existence of any special editions, not even the re-release. There is no “A New Hope”. It doesn’t exist. The 1977 cut IS the movie.

But I am curious about the digital material you used for your “Making of Star Wars” Disc.

What documentaries did you use for content?

Well, that’s the issue. I’ve been having trouble burning the disc. Half the content is HD, the rest SD. I’ve tried burning it several times and the SD content keeps getting stretched across the screen instead of pillboxing the sides. It’s extremely frustrating.

At any rate, here’s the content:

Original Star Wars casting videos (about 90 minutes)
Robert Guenette’s three docs on the three films
From Star Wars to Jedi: the making of a saga
The Star Wars Holiday special
John Williams - Creating the score for ESB
Outtakes from all three films.

I’m also still finetuning the sleeve, which is why I indicated its a WIP.

Best,
Ron

Follow up on the making of disc. I was way too ambitious in the content. I ended up culling it down to the auditions along with a great video I found on YouTube of the MidAmerica WorldCon, a panel from a 1976 convention with Gary Kutrz, Mark Hamill and Charles Lipponcott. Really fascinating seeing them explain what a “light sword” is!

What kind of sticker paper did you use for the box? When I made mine I used sticker paper with a matte finish, and I like the way it feels, but sometimes the colors aren’t very vibrant. Do you have any suggestions for some better sticker paper? Thanks!

I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on glossy sticker paper. None of them work. If the stock looks good, then the adhesive is weak and begins peeling off within hours.

I gave up on adhesive printer paper. I decided to go with regular glossy printer paper and used the rubber cement dry mounting method. You can Google it, but essentially you apply rubber cement to both surfaces, let them both dry. Then the resulting dry mount is SUPER sticky. Only drawback is you have to position perfectly; there’s no re-positioning once the two surfaces touch their adhesives. I have not checked, but I’m sure there are dozens of videos explaining it on youtube.

Ron

Packaging looks absolutely fantastic Ron, the kind of set this film deserves - like Warners Ultimate Collectors editions of Wizard of Oz, but with the dial turned up to 11!

In terms of pillarboxing, I sometimes find the best option is to hardcode the pillarbox bars into the video so that everything is 16x9 - just removes any doubt that the player / tv is going to try and stretch to fill the sceen.

Thanks. Any idea of how to hardcode a movie file on a Mac?
