VHS covers.

Hello.

I am a brand new user, but a long time aficionado and VHS collector.
Currently I own almost all VHS releases that were available in my country and the ISD box from UK (#261).

I have always been thinking of making custom VHS editions of post-III films, there was even VHS of VII in Delta airlines, but I cannot get any solid information from them about who made those ever since 2016…

I have purchased JVC’s studio VHS mastering deck and multi-tape duplicator both S-VHS capable. And I thought why not finally do them.

1st step is source mastering to file that is compatible with VHS standard, then transfer to the mastertape, or straight to duplicator from digital file, the latter eliminating deteriorating master tape, or use a digital tape, but I only have DVCAM digital deck and DV is unsuitable as master.

But the final step are the covers and labels.

So my question is, will there be any kind person that could help me with a project of VHS cover both as slip cover and clamshell cover in the style of post-2000 covers (black background, gold titles, fake catalogue numbers, and EAN numbes from kinky products, descriptions, credits, etc)?

Something similar to this:

Hey mate,

I’m actually the guy who made those VHS covers, if you would like if you give me your email address I can send you my designs and I’ll throw in some other designs too (I’ve also made some other designs since then that could fit in a claim shell case for VII-IX). I also do have a VHS copy of TFA however I got a Retro records and Dvd store guy to make it for me here in Australia.

Cheers Marco

Also my email is bluraymarco@gmail.com

That would be cool, thank you.

There is/was a VHS copy of TFA used by Delta airlines, bot for 3 years now they do everything they can not to answer my question who made those for them.

Could you post some examples of your work on here too please, bluraymarco? They are some truly great covers you have come up with.

Tighten Up and then turn it all the way up to 11!

Actually this would be a great idea, since I’m having a hard time customizing them to look more like European covers of 2000-2005 VHS releases.

Small update.

I will be getting Blackmagic stuff to transfer digtal masters to VHS, so the project will soon move from “fantasy” to “doable”.

Though I still need to do some research and work on the covers. Andsince getting golden cases like the prequels had I guess I will have to do cardboard and maybe a nice box-set, like the 1995 and 2000 releases of trilogy had. Or maybe 1997 style with Ben Swolo’s helmet instead of Vader’s?
