Are they printable and if so how do they look?

Slight change in pace for the conversation. Anybody have any experience buying from this seller for bluray cases or have another seller they’d reccomend?
I would love to eventually put this set in black cases as it looks really nice and would complement what they seem to be doing with the ST packaging. But so far this is the only place I’ve found that offers black, four disc cases. I’m just a little concerned because their site makes them seem a bit… how to put this… unprofessional. I’d rather not get screwed over for trying to get a slightly cooler look.
Of course the final covers will fit any 14mm spine (That seems to pretty much be the standard for 4 disc cases), but I still like the black look.
I recently use Casetopia.com and I am loving their prices and service. I live outside of the U.S. so Criterion wouldn’t ship to me. I got 3 Criterion cases, 3 PS3 cases and 3 standard 3 disc Blu-Ray cases for about $10 usd…I printed my covers out today and the Criterion cases make a big difference in my opinion…
I forgot to add that the “box” in my boxed set is just an empty Lord of the Rings extended edition Blu-ray set box I found on Ebay. I wanted something stronger than just a cardboard box, and basically disassembled the original, added the minimalist artwork and then put the box back together…
I am trying to post a pic, and I don’t know what in the hell I am doing, but what the hell…it’s worth a shot. A couple of weeks ago I asked if anyone had ever used a site “casetopia.com” and although I didn’t get any response, I took a shot and ordered some cases from them.
Firstly, the website does look a bit shady, but the prices are pretty cheap, plus they ship to Poland, unlike Criterion… Also, here a few snaps of my box set work in progress…thanks again for all the hard work and art work shared!
Thanks again for the hard work; the discs and materials are really very cool. I was able to unpack the doco ROTJ without any issues using JDownloader, basically using the same process for the other discs. Burned them with img burn and verified playback in my PS3…everything is lovely. I am also working on a boxed set so once my materials arrive, maybe I can post some pics…
Thanks for the update and the hard work. They will be worth the wait, no doubt.
Does anyone have any experience with this company: http://www.casetopia.com/Default.asp ?
I was on their site and found some interesting stuff. I am interested in their Criterion cases; Criterion will not ship to Europe.
I am burning ANH and ESB stuff now…all I can say is wow, they are some awesome compilations of behind the scenes and docs. A lot of the stuff is totally new to me, so it’s been really cool to see this. Thanks again for the hard work and effort everybody. I actually feel pretty bad that I can’t contribute other than kind words and appreciation, but if your ride breaks down, I can hook a brother or sister up if one is not otherwise trained in the auto machanical arts as it were…
Wow, that is some amazing work. Thanks for the effort and time spent making these films the best that they can be. PM sent.
I used Avery.eu for my label printing and it allows for vertical and horizontal adjustment of the image, but there is still some level of guess work. I was not able to find a disk label that I really liked, so I used the Avery’s for a while. Then I found some specifically for Blu ray discs from a company called Herma, but my inkjet would not print on them, so I had a commercial printer do them for me. This ended up being the best option for me. The labels I have been using are here:
I wasted a lot of money and time trying to get it just right, whereas the printer I take them to now does all the work, I just peel and stick…
Thanks for the hard work; I just checked out Jedi and it was very impressive to say the least. As far as the workprint is concerned, it looked pretty dang good to me, kudos.
Thanks for the artwork, it’s really appreciated.
