I have neither the label sheets, nor the applicator, yet…

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 respectfully do not agree. I have been using printable labels for a few years with no issues thus far (to be fair, only been using PS3, PS4, and other Sony branded blu-ray players) While damage to any player is not impossible, I would argue that this would only occur after hundreds of hours of constant play.

not a bad idea…the artwork is amazing, and has me chomping at the bit to make a set for “empire” alone! I hear even harmy is not too fond of referring to it as “despecialized” anymore as well. Hope you finish and make them available to the community. Some of the more unique covers I have seen thus far! keep up the amazing work!

I probably produce my labels differently than you, so here are the assets you should be able to use to duplicate. I size them with avery software and print from there. Hope this helps

Should I just get over it?......
Time

Guys,

I have very much appreciated the hard work and effort you all put into your cover designs. I’m happy to say, the the star wars blu-ray sets I am most proud of sit on my shelf with your artwork on their covers.

What I am not happy about is seeing people trying to sell the fruits of the OT community’s labor on e-bay for exorbitant sums. Forgive me if I am new to the party, but I just saw a set with an asking price of $190.

I never liked tatty-tales myself back in the day so perhaps I should just get over it?

Again, your work is so very much appreciated for an old Star Wars purist like myself.

Cheers

Markus

ronwlim's custom bluray cases/box set
Time

Ronwlim, these are incredible. I have built a set of my own adding a few elements of my own like Mondo art inserts, and I made some custom labels. The mondo labels are beautiful as well, but don’t really work well on the disc because of the giant hole in the middle that obscures that amazing art. I’d post a pic of what I have done, but alas…the secret of how to post images here baffles this incompetent padawan.

http://imgur.com/a/qkHLG Here is my imgur link. I really like what the minimalist artists were doing with the Star Wars brand, and I used their work for my labels. I felt it fit with the Mondo style. The idea is to just be able to eyeball the disc art and immediately know which film in the trilogy it is.

Printing on DVDs
Time

Hi guys. I have had success printing labels for my despecialized blu rays using a product called (horbis CD/DVD labels) in combination with a software called Avery (5931 is the template) bought from Amazon. They turn out pretty great in my opinion, and should serve your purposes. I have had no friends complain when I presented their SW sets for Christmas so far. Perhaps I’ll post a pic if I can figure out how. Cheers
