About 5-10 years ago I used to print replica case sleeves for "backups" of my PC software, games and encyclopedias on cd. But for about 5 years I've not bothered with them anymore. Backups rarely got taken off the shelf especially when they grew outdated, my encyclopedias were never used after wikipedia came along, and game cds I now prefer to keep all together, stood without cases in a little plastic tray. Although I was dead keen on making these sleeves at the time, I ended up feeling quite pathetic about making them when I eventually threw them away. For a time I did grow quite fond of the more deluxe dvd style case, and I did make up one or two of these, but they too have since gone the same way.
I do understand the appeal, in that it's kind of nice to kit out your computer desk with authentic looking stuff once in a while.
And I must admit, your cases do look appealing, for decoration purposes more than anything else.
So now I'm thinking what else could we do with these graphics besides print replica cases? I'm sure there would be a market for themed collectors items; wall art for example.
Do you remember those A4 ads in the magazines? Some of those would look quite nice framed. Could we round up some pictures? I'll start us off.
