Grindhouse trilogy 3-in-1/ matching individual covers/labels?
Time

Finally got it assembled. For some reason, when I put the new cover into my photoshop, the dimensions went wonky, so I had to piece it into the right shape.

Closed

Outside

Inside

I will post some pictures in the next couple days with the discs inside, once they’re finished drying and being burned. I’m gonna be using those really nice film reel labels for the ones inside my cover. Also, Mark, I really like that bit at the bottom on the back with the logos and all the legalese. Is there a template for that anywhere or did you have to assemble that from scratch, because having that to use for future covers would be amazing?

So… I am really not great at photo editing, but I tried something. I picked up some interesting 3 disc blu ray cases that are Criterion width, but with the normal blu ray topper, so I built it to that. Here’s what I came up with:

Pic 1
Outer cover

Pic 2
Inner Cover

Pic 3
Outer cover irl (pardon the bad phone quality)

Inner cover irl (again, pardon the bad phone quality)

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

from http://www.covertr.com/dvd-cover-set/48338-star-wars-collection-custom-dvd-cover-set-english-1977-2018-a.html

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.

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.

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?

I didn’t see any DVD sets

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.

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

https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Phildesfrs-Blu-Ray-Complete-Set/id/56080
 

and also his Despecialized Covers sets, here:-

https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Custom-blu-ray-setfor-the-Despecialized-Editions/id/18201
 

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

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.
