Blu-Ray and other HD box size STAR WARS covers
Time

Well, instead of doing the covers I posted above, I decided to take a bit of an alternate route with them. I took a few of the pictures for each cover and change the “threshold” for each on GIMP. I put a few things together here and there, added one color to text only, and use the paint & eraser tool. The result is my brand new set for the OT (doesn’t matter which version). It’s bold on my part, and me be something of a required taste, but I like the end result. So here they are. Use them if you are into a style like this. I’ll definitely be using them:

These are for standard 12mm (or 12.5mm) cases.

Same. The spine logo looks a little “thin” to me for some reason I can’t quite place, too.

It is a work in progress…

Yes, I know, which is why I gave some constructive feedback so you can improve it as you work on it. If you didn’t want that kind of feedback, why post a work in progress?

I meant no offense. It’s kind of a bad habit. My apologies. I welcome the feedback. 😃

^ Despite how good that looks, I personally won’t use it. The reason being is because of the picture. Even though it’s an amazing poster by Drew Struzan, it is still a representation of the Special Editions.

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:

Also, expect an all-new series of Star Wars covers soon.

Wait…these are just for criterion cases?? Dammit! Thought they were for standard 12.5 blu ray cases… I have no criterion cases, nor do I have the money yo buy them… -_-

I had an idea for a “faces” set for the OT (ANH would have Leia, Han for TESB, and Luke for ROTJ), but I don’t know how “relevant” it is anymore. A “face” cover could be either really good, or really bad. I’ve seen a lot of bad ones–specifically for animated movies–that didn’t make any sense.

Relevant or not, I would love to see what you come up with!

Another issue involves the photo for Han I want to use for TESB. The one I have is only available in a certain resolution. I can’t find it in better quality. Because my covers are very hi-res, the picture would look a bit fuzzy.

My "Star Wars Trilogy" 3 In 1 set.
Time

Here’s my 3-1 insert for the Original Trilogy. It can be used for any version of the Theatrical OT: Despecialized (what I have), Silver Screen, Grindhouse, Puggo Grande, GOUT Upscaled, etc:

set

I decided to edit the “Theatrical Collection” and gave it a “Star Wars” look.

Here’s an “alternative” look to my 3-1:

set

As you can see, I replaced the images on the back with actual screenshots from the movies showing key parts. I’ll be using Ralph McQuarrie art for Disc Labels instead. I also changed the colors of the titles on the back to something “loosely” based on the way they looked on the 1995 THX tapes (which were the last “Official” Unaltered releases on VHS).

Here’s a double-sided option:

I might also try to make set with all three movies in one case. A three disc case. Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions for a picture that can represent the entire trilogy (other than the Star Wars Trilogy picture)?

I decided to not use the “individual” slipcovers for my set. The set will already have to slipcases anyway. Why add more to the load? Besides, I want to make room for a “fourth” case for a bonus disc which will have “From Star Wars To Jedi.”

No, no, no! Don’t put labels on optical discs! They will deteriorate much faster than the disc itself and when they do, they can cause possibly irreparable damage to your blu-ray player!

Take a look at this article. There are also posts about this floating around this forum.

People posting disc art around are here intending it to be printed directly onto inkjet printable discs using something like this:

I can’t afford something like that. Besides, I’ve been spending months trying to create proper labels on Avery.com. Are you ****ing kidding me?! Only now I start to hear problems? I’ve been using all that I have (paper, cardboard, etc.) to create this set. I don’t have card stock or photo paper. I had to do it myself with what I only have in my possession, and all this hard work has stopped for something like this…Without these labels, my set can’t be completed.

Unless someone does it for me, I have no other options.

Would a friend, or local library or local printers/stationery store be able to help you out?
 

This thread may be of interest for a little more info on printers with ‘print-to-disc’ facilities:-

http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/What-printers-does-everyone-use-for-printing-discs-and-artwork/id/55031

Surprisingly, many printers with the print-to-disc facility aren’t much more expensive than the printers without - though obviously it is an otherwise unnecessary purchase (and ink can so expensive these days too).

Good luck with it - I really hope you complete your quality set.
 

By the way - superb covers and discart - very cool 😃

I can print out the labels myself. I just need the proper materials. There have been people who have had printed labels on discs for years and still no problems, as long as it’s smooth with no air bubbles.

Well, in addition to the set I’m still working one (I’m still not finished with the Slipcases), here are my “Retro” Disc Labels. The color scheme is reminiscent to the Original VHS tapes I had. The white with the black text represents the white label that was placed on the center of every tape. The black background represents the tape itself. I just added a star field (which is the one from the beginning of the first film) as a bonus, because it’s Star Wars, and it kinds adds to the “Retro” look. If you hate the star field, I will gladly give you one without:

I cannot print these for myself yet. I have neither the label sheets, nor the applicator.

Here they are! These are my official Slipcovers for the Original Trilogy. They can be used for any version of the Original Theatrical Cuts (Despecialized, Silver Screen, Grindhouse, Puggo Grande, Poita, GOUT, etc.). Take them! Use them, as I will! Tell your friends about them:

^ This TESB photo of Luke was already found like this. I had to do the others myself. However, I did “adjust” the grayscale and the contrast.

As you can see, these were “inspired” by the CBS/FOX release (this was how I was introduced to Star Wars as a child):

I still have to work on my Slipcase, though. The inner and outer slipcases will be “inspired” by this:
