    DVD Jewel Jackets

    My son is busily burning DVD's. I'm guessing he's transferring his VHS tapes to DVD. He's asked me about any software he can use to create jackets for the DVD Jewel cases. A package that'll do the backs as well as the spines. I'm at a loss to suggest anything thing since I have yet to move beyond CD/RW's. Can anybody suggest something worthwhile?

    Many times there is jewel case software supplied with the PC or DVD drive if bought separately. Also, software to burn DVDs or CDs often has some failry simple jewel case capabilities.

    I have the Nero Ultra package, which comes with a label maker. I'm fairly certain that this will make DVD jewl cases in addition to the traditional CD jewel cases (although I usually store DVDs in CD cases...).

    The handful of major do-it-all media suites (Nero, Roxio, etc.) should have an application that will do this.

    You can create a template in absolutely any drawing package for this purpose. I have one that works in Word and another for CorelDraw, as well as the software that came with Nero.

    You can also download Avery Templates and save them as Word files. These will work with any Avery Jewel Case Inserts that you can purchase at almost any major office supply business.

    There is a free trial of a prog to make CD labels as well as Jewel Case inserts for the front, back and spines. Comes with some sample case designs or you can design your own.


    Try it at: Acoustica CD

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
