Thread: Good, Cheap DVD Sleeve Printing

    Default Good, Cheap DVD Sleeve Printing

    Not sure which forum to post this in, so feel free to move it if another forum is more appropriate.

    Does anyone know of a good, cheap DVD sleeve printing service online? I'm not looking for 75,000 sleeves, more in the region of 50 - 100.

    Failing that, does anyone know of a good, cheap way to package DVDs, whilst at the same time, making 'em look nice? I have no trouble in buying 50 - 100 DVD cases (at 9p per case). Handing out blank white DVDs is okay I guess, it's just I can't go round handing them out in blank black cases too!

    Ideas anyone?

    Thanks ....

    I got my covers printed at uni', it's not super cheap, it cost me 10 for 25, but they're good quality, just remember to supply an uncompressed CYMK format.

    For the on dvd "artwork" I cut out a stencil from a thin sheet of plastic and sprayed printable DVD-Rs with some paint through the stencil,

    then used Ghiant fixative spray (recommended by Marc, got it at blankdiscshop.co.uk at the same time as the dvd cases) to give it a better finish and prevent the paint coming off.

    I also bought a rotary cutter thing from Staples to slice the covers out neatly,

    I'd suggest going to your local uni' or college and asking about it there, It's the best way I have found of getting 25-50 covers printed.

    Thanks, the covers do sound a tad expensive though, because most of these DVDs will be given away. However, that stencil idea is brilliant! What paint did you use for it, and how did you stop the paint and spray from ruining the data side of the disc?

    Any other ideas on the covers are welcome.

    It's called: Plasti-kote Project Paint - Fast Dry Enamel

    I got it from Ham & Sewell, the colour I've got is called "Orange Glow", it's great, really stands out from the white.

    I just put the disc down on some newspaper and was reasonably carefull, I haven't ruined any yet.

    Here's a pic' of the dvd artwork.

    Okay thanks, it's a brush on I assume?

    I'm off out now but I'll look into it later on, cheers.
