Post #2. Updating it slowly. I started adding names to who created it. I'll go back later and add the rest eventually.

Finally the OT! Congrats OP, very well done, and congrats on the banner for the one who made it, it's awesome!


Now a question, does anyone here do this covers using a MAC? If yes, which program are you using? Thank you.

Office Max only really charges 73 cents per page? Is there an additional fee for the service? That seems dirt cheap.
yeah, this is news to me as well. whenever i bought used PS2 games, i ended up just printing stuff from the cover project on regular paper, cut it all jaggedy, and just kinda hope no one does more with my collection than look at the spines.

great thread, by the way! subscribing.

I'm looking for a 3DS template with the logo on the side, like the real thing, but without the white bar.

Could somebody please do that Batman Arkham City cover on a 360 template?

This thread is fantastic. Some great stuff in here.

Would it be possible to get that Alice cover for PC (blank basically, no GFW logo)?
Like this?

any way to do the 3D template as a batch script?
I'm still learning how action scripts work, but I'll play around with batch processing and see if theres a way to do it.

My GFW minimal logo (I think it's linked in the OP) just has the "PC DVD ROM" logos on the front bottom and sine.

Did you scale that logo to size or did you find a high res one? :D I'm looking for one, preferably a white one, but if I have to edit it then so be it. If it was scaled, I'll probably just keep looking :(
I found a PSD of the logo, so no background, but its too big to upload right now :\

Edit: Not liking what I see for Just Cause 2. Going to have to give it a try later, will install the game and take some HQ screenshots for it.

Why are some non-printable? Sorry, for the stupid question, just don't get it. (What makes them unprintable?)

And I'm spent.

I think I have 99% of the old thread on post 2. Taking a break for now, will try to update the rest of the names later and start to add new stuff posted in this thread.

Probably made previously just for fun, with low res assets that wouldn't be suitable for an actual cover. Or the poster just doesn't have the printable cover anymore.

Do you guys know of a resource to get clean images of cover logos? Especially the one's on the spine?
You mean just the game logo?
If so, Google Images >" logoname png" > Size: Large

I have a project suggestion for posters who like this thread and want to contribute but are no good with graphic design; make a list of covers that haven't been done yet. I know I would like to print out some of these, but I wouldn't want to convert 1/3rd of my collection and leave the other 2/3rds, right?

Major PS3 exclusives that are in my collection that aren't in the list above:
3D Dot Game Heroes
Afrika / Hakuna Matata
Aquanaut's Holiday
Heavenly Sword
Little Big Planet 1
Ratchet and Clank Future Tools of Destruction

It doesn't really fall under the minimalistic trend this thread seems to have focused on so far, but everyone should take a look at The Cover Project. I have all my SNES games in cases with cover art from that site.
Personally, I use the Cover Project for GBA-in-DS case games, and it's great for reprinting the official box arts of games in new formats, but the custom contributions over there suck hard.

Yup. All I've used it for is the UGC Vertical cover arts for SNES and N64 games, but most anything that isn't the original or the original modified (such as the vertical covers) sucks bad.

Is the Blu-ray section not setup yet?

I would like to request How to Train Your Dragon and Scott Pilgrim please...I lost my cases and would love a better Scott Pilgrim cover. Maybe one with art taken from the comics and not the movie :)

I did not see a template posted yet and nobody has contributed to it yet.

Added it b/c someone wanted to see some stuff in the future, so w/ this thread hopefully we'll get some stuff :)
