I need to find out a good VHS case to ship my video

Hello,

I am making a copy of the show I did for my farovit band, and I need to ship 21 copies of em (7 shows x 3 members). I want to be able to make a pretty cover and put it on the outside of box, but I don't know which one would let me do that.

Has anyone used any of those or have any recommendation?

Thank you!

I'd go with the bottom one of your two choices.

www.polylinecorp.com is a source I've used for VHS storage and packaging materials. They offer a number of different plastic boxes and just about anyone is cheaper than Markertek for most things. (Markertek catalogs are great to have handy though when you need to see what's available)

I'm wondering which case would let me put an insert outside of box, but it won't fall off because overwarp is open top and bottom. I've seen that sorts of case and it wasn't looking pretty

I bought a 5 pack of clear plastic cases from Wal-Mart for $2us. That's only $0.40 each, but they don't have a sleeve to hold a cover.

The ones I posted from tapeguys come with about 3 different sleeve combinations. Call them.
