Video boxes (covers)

Ok my next video is about to come out in 2 months. Last time I had this company make me 400 copies of my video and they told me that i couldn't order no less than than 1000 covers for my video. So I had 400 videos and 600 covers left over. Is there a company that anyone knows that can do 200-500 covers????Thanks

He just does the art work on the boxes, he doesnt duplicate them. I need to find someone who will duplicate them for cheap with out making 2000 of them. I do my own design work. I'm sure people here have had a movie or 2 made at some point.

Try Kinko's! I just got a bunch of 11x17" posters made for $1.98 each (Canadian, mind you). You can make as many or as little as you want, there are no set amounts.

I don't know if they do jackets but I would definitely look into it.

You will probably find that it is less expensive to use the plastic boxes that allow you to insert a wrapper under a clear plastic wrapper than to get just 400 slip covers printed. At least that's what I found when I went looking a year or so ago.

well thats kind of cheesy. I dont mind the cost, but i'm not trying to buy SO MANY. i dont need 2000 covers just laying around. There has to be a company that makes them in low numbers like 200-700.

Some months ago I went to a local printing company asking just for 300 sheets for a CD, the jacket (both sides) and the jewel case, they did all I ask for except the cd label wich they dont handle. Im sure they can do that also.
Unfortunally they don't have a web site.
