What you have to remember to make a good graphic for cover designs is that you have to make it bigger than you need. Leave edged all around. Even add edges if you can. In some cases you can’t. Then when you drop a graphic into a cover template, you have more room to work. Ideally, the template would be a little big so you can trim off part of the printed image for an clean edge (as opposed to trying to cut along an exact line and getting some white and then having to go back and recut and run the risk of an uneven edge). You have to plan for this when you place the images. The cover image may need to be a tiny bit offset. For professional printing they like to more room to cut. Though I just proofed something for work today that didn’t look like it had any over printing.

I’m just using the pdf provided here, is it high quality? I’m just going to print it at a print shop and have them cut it if they can.

You’ll need to make sure it prints at at least 300 dpi if you want “high quality”. Figure that out with your image and the print size. If you do a little research online you can learn all about this. Take fifteen minutes to google for the proper blu-ray cover template size, and what “dpi” means, and what the image resolution is in whatever your source image is. This will help you figure out what you need and what to tell your print shop to get a perfect cover.

And yes, ideally you add what’s called “bleed” to the edges of the image to allow for room to cut it perfectly.

UPDATE: Acquired some blank Blu-Ray cases and printable discs, i got a friend who has an Epson Artisan printer for printing on discs similar to Mr. Yotsuya’s, but I have no idea if the printable cover provided here fits the dimensions of my Blu-Ray case. Its just a standard generic Blu-Ray case.

Specifically this one:

It’s going to take some measuring and some knowledge of DPI and print size. Some cases have different widths, 11m, 14mm. That will affect how the printed cover fits.

It’s so frustrating to see all of this. On one hand, it would be ideal if we could just have links out in the open for everyone! OF COURSE we want everyone to experience Star Wars the “right” way! But then, we are crossing a line where the Mouse could wake up and shut it all down over copyright infringement concerns. So, we’re forced to put small barriers up to make sure it at least takes a little bit of research and work to get it.

Then you have the asshats who just profit off that confusion.

How do I get to download these? I’ve been wanting to do marathon plus rogue one and these would be great for that!

The answer you seek is not behind you… it is above. I am no Moderator, but I know the ot.com. It moves through and surrounds every living thing. Close your eyes… feel it… The light… it’s always been there. It will guide you. The link. Take it.

That made my day. Brilliant!

[…] I was actually softening a little in my heart on my stance against the prequels. I was even vaguely considering watching them again at some point.

Oh boy, the “giving-the-Prequels-one-more-chance” thing. That comes in my mind from time to time too. I have not seen the Prequels for quite a while now in order to forget them as good as possible. But on the other hand, i’m saying to myself: Hey, they can’t be that bad? Let’s rewatch them completely open-minded. I did this two times in the past … but those movies are not getting better

I made the mistake a few years ago of falling into the “maybe I’ll give them just one more go” trap. No, they were worse than I remembered. After that I physically threw the DVDs in the trash so I may never again be tempted. My household is officially prequel-free.
