Wedding video question

Does anyone know where I can get a generic VHS wedding video case which would say for example "Our Wedding Memories"?

I buy these clear VHS cases called Mediagold, (Michelex, Trimark), Montreal, Quebec. What I do is put stickers on the outsite of the case. You can have stickers printed for you, or make them yourself, easily on a computer/printer/labals.

Start with www.polylinecorp.com . They specialise in cassette cases and lables. They should have any number of wedding themes for just a few bucks, including nice leatherbound cases.

Everybody has got there own idea.

For me I have a lot of ideas. Sometimes I use a full art trap VHS case and design my own covers with my photo printer. After you do the first few it only takes a few min to design. This personalises the case. They can't find another one like it because it is an original. So if you sell copies they will most likely come back to you for duplication and not make there own.

However the nice cases with our wedding day and so forth look a lot fancier. I usually give my clients a choice and charge a little extra for the fancy cases. Most prefer the custom cases but the fancy cases are at a near second in the race.

When I do mass productions I just get the cardboard sleeves with a window and put the printed lables on them.

Below are a few links you can check out. You may be surprises from prices at $3.00 to around $60 (real leather and super nice).

My wife runs a Scrapbooking and Party supply store in Santa Cruz California. We don't carry those video cases, but if memory serves... a company called Francis Meyer, Inc. in Atlanta Georgia makes them. (we carry their other stuff) You might call them at 1-800-372-6237 and ask them which retailers in your area stock them and/or how you can get them directly.
Good Luck
