Default Those of you with custom covers...

I'm just wondering what printer/printer paper you use. I want to print out some custom covers, but I'm not quite sure what to get or use. Any help is much appreciated!

They might not let you do that if your cover has copyrighted images on it. It all depends on the place, but some Kinkos get really anal about making copies of stuff like DVD covers, even if it's not the official one because you don't hold the copyright on the images.

For all my HD DVD Custom Covers (Much thanks to the guys that created them, you know who you are) I used glossy paper (I think it was called semi-glossy). Not to thick, just the right feel/fit, so I can place the retail cover behind it. The art came out real clean looking.

If you wanna go thicker, then I'd go with Matte paper. It felt very similar to the retail covers.

I went to Office Depot to get mine done. The guys/females I dealt with were cooh there. They were in awe with the art covers (talked movies with them), so I told them where the go-to sites are (the foeks that made them), and I told them to go ahead n' copy them on a disc for themselves. In the end they hooked me up. I paid for 5 printed out covers, while printing out 22 covers that day.

Hope this helps.

There are many sources:
My favorite covers are those created by Bunny Dojo
Then there is a universal website to get them:
www.eaprogramming.com
Just click downloads
and then there's an open forum for people to post their creations (I post mine here)
AVS Forum
Other places include DVDcoversfuzion and 9covers.com but they're either just starting up (fuzion) or a pay site (9covers)

Hey Twisted,

I just noticed your "Shining" cover piece, "WoW" type of art work man, I'm gonna be using this one for sure. The cover states more than alot as oppose to the original front cover, imo.

(Hope it's okay to flaunt your work)

I post on the AVS Forum under Ian C (I only go to the Custom Cover thread), any progress for "Mallrats", yet?

Thanks again, I appreciate it.

Thanks for the advice. I never even thought about putting them on a SD card and taking them somewhere... Hmm... I have a Lexmark X5470 printer. Does anyone think I could just get some glossy paper and print it on there? Would the quality be decent? Thanks again!
