I'm guessing you had these ready for days already and finally posted them today.

Yeah, same deal with my menus, which I need to post when I get home.

I heart templates.

Besides, the effect wouldn't be the same printed out like that.  For best results print the cover and take a good clear gluestick and a good handful of glitter to it.  Allow some time to dry and shake off the excess before putting it in the case. Congratulations, you've made the perfect cover for Twilight, in that it'll hurt to look at and it would be highly embarassing if anyone who didn't know about riffing saw it.

You'd still get flakes of glitter spilling out over time.  DVD, CD, and video game containers tend to lose functionality when you try to be cute with them.

Alright. I've seen these DVD covers a lot. I know that Twilight is one DVD I could NOT have without advertising my feelings about it VIA a humorous DVD cover.

Soooo, here's my question.

How the gremplork do you print out these frelling DVD covers so that you can actually put them on the DVD?

No matter how I do it, they always wind up being too big.

Basically, you need legal-sized paper (8.5"x14"). I used to have the same problem. I'd use a label-printing program (I currently use exPressit) to make a DVD cover and then it'd get cut off.

I gave up on the disc covers. I tried using adhesive paper covers, but they mess up the disc by putting it off balance and/or making it too heavy. I don't currently have a printer that will print on the discs themselves and don't have the scratch to buy one.
