I would hide the [4:3] box. The world is going to wide screen format :)

"Highlight" should be "Highlights"

Can you use a round bullet instead of a "dash" ?
yes.... I should hide the [4:3]....
next time I would put some screen shot in there. thank you

Not only hide the 4:3 logo, but abandon it altogether. Do couples who can afford your services come back from honeymoon and switch on an old 4:3 CRT? I very much doubt it.

...and can I also ask: do you find they are brittle (rather like CD jewel cases) and crack/break?

I'm using Jewelboxing cases. Kinda pricey compared to my old ones but they are worth it IMO.. At the bulk that I buy them, including ink cost, I would say each case comes out to $3.

Yes, they do crack, In fact, I had one case that I thew into my laptop pouch and somehow during transport, the front surface got cracked.. I would say they are exactly like CD cases, but a bit softer because the surface area is much larger..

One thing I don't like about it is that their DVD label paper stock is much different than the stock for the rest of the case, as a result, I can not match the colors between them. I have yet to try printable DVDs thou.

Yang, what software do you use to print on the irregular sizes? I found the Jewelboxing cases online but no mention of software or what to use.

Nevermind Yang, just read that you get access to software after purchase.

Jason.

They just provide you with templates for their perforated papers.

Be prepared to wasted a few sheets initially when you are trying to align it to your printer.

however the couple requested 4:3.

In New Zealand, 4:3 CRT are still around.....

What else can I put it there?
Try to write a short piece of text about that weddingday for the back.
Something like: On a beautiful day in the spring of 2008, Mary and Bill blah blah blah and so on. What I'm trying to say is catch that whole day in couple of sentences.
Blur the background on the back of the case so that the text is getting the attention instead of the photo.

You can put on the running time, extras (if included), aspect ratio (if it is shot in 16:9 otherwise don't), regional code of the DVD, PAL or NTSC and when shot in HD you can also put that on.

I'm not sure about this, but I believe that you must have a license, that is costing a lot of money, to make use of the DVD logo. Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks Yang. BTW, I love the case design for Kim & Justin...the "graphite" look is fabulous.

I believe you're right Ivan, and that the DVD video logo is copyright and can't be used willi-nilli. But then again the Epson Print CD software that came with my DVD printer had all these logos supplied, so I use them on that basis.

Why worry about the logo? Just use 'DVD'. Gets the same message across.
