Star Wars I - VIII Matching DVD covers?

Author

 (Edited)

So, I recently replaced my TFA and TLJ DVD covers with ones that match the 2001-2006 DVD cover style. I like having it match, but I can see the difference between my home printer and professional print quality. I still wanna have a consistent look for my DVDs, could anyone point me towards a good matching set for Episodes I - VIII (bonus brownie points if there’s a matching cover for the 2004 bonus features disc and for Rogue One, but that’s not as important to me)? Thanks!

If the problem is the printer like you seem to be saying at first, I don’t see how we can be of any help. You just have to get a professional quality printer/paper.

No, I meant more so I wanted the DVDs to have a consistent set. The two I printed look good on their own, but when they’re next to the retail covers, you can tell which are real and which are printed. So, ideally, I wanna have a set that’s all printed so they look like they all fit together better.

I guess another way to say it is I don’t want a retail/printed cover mix, I’d like to find one set of custom covers that go together.

There are a fair few quality Saga cover sets on here, though I do like Phildesfr’s Blu-Ray Complete Set, here:-

and also his Despecialized Covers sets, here:-

It may also be worth going through the Index thread to see which Saga sets you may like too.

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

I have seen those before, and use some for some of my blu ray sets. I just haven’t had a lot of luck finding a consistent set of covers for the DVDs of 1-8, which is why I decided to post.

BTW, I did check the index first before posting, and unless I missed it (and please correct me if I did) I didn’t see any DVD sets of all 8 films in the same style of cover. I’m honestly cool with almost any style of cover, so long as it fits the American DVDs.

Probably because most of us have BDs. Honestly not trying to be rude, Blu Ray just eclipsed DVD a long time ago so most people don’t bother anymore with custom DVD art.

No, I get what you’re saying. Star Wars is the only property that I still care about DVDs (With the exception of the random film/doc that I care about that somehow only released on DVD), and there are family members who love Star Wars but only have DVD, so it still makes sense to have it. Not to mention it’s just nice to be able to complete the set I’ve been working on since 2001.

So yes, I’m fully aware that DVD is not as popular, and yes Blu ray and now 4K have surpassed it. Doesn’t mean I just throw out movies. Not trying to be rude either.

Oh no I completely get that. I’m a pretty big collector of Star Wars home media so I share your frustration with not having matching DVD covers, was just trying to shed some light on why you won’t find many custom DVD art

Yeah, it totally makes sense. I’m not too picky about what they look like, so hopefully can find something.

It may be worth having a look through the blu ray covers to see if anything can be easily adapted, or asking one of the talented people on here to make a new set - in one of the request threads?
 

Something like this? (from the blu ray cover thread)

or

 

I’m not a fan of these - though beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and there are now full matching sets available… (in the DVD covers thread)

 

Good luck with it mate - hope you find something that catches your eye.

Could you point me in the direction of the proper request thread, please?

Thanks oojason! I took your advice, found some covers meant for Blu ray and just swapped the logo for DVD. Thanks for the help!

Part of the issue is that many “complete” sets were made a while ago by members that may no longer be active, so they’re not getting updated as new movies come out.

Also, bear in mind that BR covers have different dimensions than DVD covers, so just swapping out the logo means your cover will be too short and maybe also too narrow(?) for a DVD case.

You are right, that’s why I went off of actual DVD cover dimensions, took the blu ray cover, and centered it on the template, then matched the excess area to the color of the cover, which thankfully was black. The more I think about it though, the more I’m thinking about it, the more I may just focus on I-VI matching covers, and let the Disney era stuff use the original covers. I have a folder of different covers, and I ran across something called “The Graphite Collection” and I kinda like the look of that. It also has matching covers for the Bonus Features disc and the 2D Clone Wars DVDs.

Personally, while I’m all for BR, I think DVD cases look much better than those ridiculous short blue things. The discs are the same size, so you fit a BR disc in a DVD case.

These may be of interest for those looking for a matching set of covers…

Looks a cool site - for other series too. You may have to register/join to be able to download them, though.

Those do look cool. Yeah, I’ve tried using that site before, and even after I registered they wouldn’t let me access content.

^ any mods on there able to help you out mate?

 

 

Saw these earlier - looked decent and something a little different… (although for blu ray, they shouldn’t be too difficult to edit/alter for DVD etc - or just for ideas inspiration too.)

To be honest, that site seems too shady for me, so I’m just gonna forget it.

Those are nice, I will download those.

That’s nice, but the logos don’t match.
