Dreamcast Cases

by Beak Wed Dec 30, 2009 7:18 pm

So, I'm about to start organizing all my burned Dreamcast games by printing covers and putting them in cases. I don't know whether to put all my games in DVD cases, or black/white/clear CD cases. How have other people done it?

I would do DVD cases, but I don't know if I could find enough cover prints for DVD cases. http://www.thecoverproject.net has some nice DVD cases, but not everything. As for CD cases, I was thinking just standard white cases because I don't have CD inserts for most of my games.

I went for white DVD cases 8)

Personally I think it looks the shizz, but I wish I'd changed the red swirls to blue before printing.

I went for white also. Only thing I changed was the Sega logo on the spine to horizontal.

Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic, looks much better in person

i really want to do this. but i have a lack of time, space, and money. question did you guys put labels on your disks or did you guys just leave them blank (besides the name on the disk)? also where can you pick up cases like that?

I just wrote on the disks. The cases are replacement Wii cases I bought from the Nintendo store.

I also just wrote on the discs - I heard putting labels on discs can mess them up.

The cases I think I just bought from Amazon. I just searched for "white DVD cases". Simple as that :)
