Hi guys. I’m here to share my very amateur results for my two box sets I made for my buddies at work. They are both the despecialized trilogy (njvc variant on blu ray) one on dvd one on blu Ray. The blu Ray also includes the 35mm transfers of the silver screen and grindhouse sequels. The blu Ray box and slip cover is empty as ive already given them to him and forgot to take pics. Pics of those to follow soon.

Heres my pals blu Ray box and slip cover. I wanted the box to show Luke and Vaders story vaguely in pictures so I found these online. From the boy on a double sunned planet all the way to his fight in esb and the final moments he spent with his father. Both sets have printed discs too I’ll get pics of those soon.









And for my buddy using late 90s tech still. I made his first and improved my technique with the blu box. Like folding paper into the opening. If anyone has any tips for me id appreciate it.

Really impressive mate - love the choices you made for the art and logos - especially the yellow 1990/92 logos 😃

A nice touch re the semi-circular pull-outs on the box itself (so you can pull the cases out more easily too)

They both look great - well in.

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?

Heres my latest set I made, i didnt take these photos the recipient did and he missed out the trading cards i printed. I’ll get him to photo those asap. Credit goes to phildesfr for his amazing art work, jakthepumpkinhead for his tutorial on making the box which worked flawlessly, and again Jacks artwork he gave me for the box.

My pal at work is really into his retro 70’s and 80s stuff, he grew up in the 80s. So i wanted his set to reflect that in looks. I think i achieved that with Phil and Jacks help. I also printed a mini comic from the time to slot into each case pictured below which he loved. And printed recreations from the trading card collection on card stock. trying to get him to take pics of these.

Set contains 5 versions of star wars( DE/SSE/RE/REVIS/Nevar’s Techni), ESB DE, grindhouse and Jedi DE and grindhouse. Also is a documentary disc for each film. The DE’s are njvc variant with the amazing menus and extras of course.

Credit for the content on discs and a big thanks to Harmy, TN1, Adywan, Nevarthegreat, and anyone I’ve missed thanks so much for helping me get these together.

Materials are …Box made from 1.5mm mounting board glued with superglue, and artwork printed on 120gsm matte photo paper attached with double sided tape. Slip cover created with 240gsm glossy photo paper. Case inlays printed on 120gsm matte paper. Chapter leaflets on 120gsm glossy paper. Mini comics printed on 120gsm matte paper, Trading cards on 160gsm card stock each side and stuck together with double sided tape resulting in quite a sturdy trading card. Blu rays are verbatim inkjet printable and made with my LG burner and printed onto with a canon pixma ip7250. Shout out to the creators of the various disc labels also.

And here’s a better picture of the mini comics with their respective trading cards layed on top. The cards are printed to the size of 8.8 to 6.25cm. I dont know if thats historically correct because I couldn’t find the info online. Maybe somebody here knows?

And the reverse of the cards have the fact tibit printed on them. Heres what I put On the reverse of the Vader card.
