because there are several different sizes of cases the spines are different but it's quite simple to make a template yourself.
First measure the size of the insert to fit the particular case size you are using. Remember that the insert will be a bit smaller than the actual case (in most all cases) Now measure the size of the spine of the case you have (could be 1/4 5/16 or whatever it is) measure the template to the vertical center and split that to each side of center. Place vertical guides where needed (spine,top, bottom, sides if needed) save it as a template and you're good to go.
I use one with a transparent background and after I make the insert for that particular job I simply name it for the job as a psd and my template stays in place. Should work for you.

A quick Google search turned up these measurements: 14mm for spine, overall width of 273mm, height of 185mm.

Hope this helps. If you have any questions about the specifics of creating a template, PM me.

The template size is close and as mentioned dvd cases will be slightly different in size.
Her are two examples..feel free to print and measure, but each insert I have ever done is custom cut when you start placing 20-50 into cases. You have to eyeball the fit and finish...I'm picky
