Artwork, Cases, and USB drives

Hey all,
I've been searching the forum to see what people are using for their artwork. Seems like most people print their own, which we have been doing...but looking into the possibility of outsourcing this, and wondering if anyone has any good recommendations.

It would need to be someone who can do DVD and Bluray sleeves, as well as a matching print right on the discs themselves. Does anyone know any good places that do that? Seemed from my search that there were a lot of case / sleeve options, but direct to disc was hard to find.

Thanks!!

I've never used them, but Disc Makers offers a bunch of services. I was looking at them to do bulk blank DVD printing, but they do the full on case and disc printing with any number of case options.

Re: Artwork, Cases, and USB drives

On a similar topic, I will be transitioning to only offering DVDs and Blu-Rays as a paid option as I'm offering a "Customized USB Drive" as the primary form of delivery. Does anyone work with a company in the US that does a good job of creating custom USB drives with either artwork or engravings?

We get ours done at Flashbay. I've only had one dud out of a few thousand.

Re: Artwork, Cases, and USB drives

Has anyone come across a DVD like case that holds a USB? I'm sure I've seen one somewhere.

Companies like Loxley or SIM2000 that supply wedding albums for photographers do some fancy ones.

Re: Artwork, Cases, and USB drives

I'm specifically looking for one that holds a USB drive but not a DVD - I'm sure I've seen one somewhere!

Re: Artwork, Cases, and USB drives

Further to Chris' post, I also highly recommend Warehouse Video UK (Wedding DVD Cases - Blank DVDs - DVD Jewel Case - VHS Tape Packs – Warehouse Video, Middlesex, UK). I don't have any affiliation with them, but I'm very pleased with their level of communication (I usually deal with Greg).

Their metal disc cases are stunning and clients always get so excited when I hand it to them! I'm pretty sure they offer USB drives + cases.
