Where to Find Artwork

Below are links to sources to find and print your own artwork, and some instructions for resizing them to fit this style of case.


The Cover Project (TCP)

You can find many scans of box art for many systems, not just the kind we sell cases for.  Most art on TCP was designed for a "Universal Game Case" style, which requires some resizing (instructions below).  You can search for art in the upper right, or go alphabetically through the links on the left.  Sometimes art may not be on the main page, but it could be found in the forums.

SegaRetro

SegaRetro is a source for some harder to find scans of Sega Genesis titles.  While The Cover Project has the vast majority, occasionally the art can be found on SegaRetro but not TCP.  This art sometimes will need significant touch-up as these scans may come from heavily damaged or faded cases.

Most art on The Cover Project is designed for Universal Game Cases, which have slightly different dimensions.  Below are the adjustments that should be made for each system:


Game Boy/Advance

No changes should be required, almost all art should be sized for the Nintendo DS style case, which has the same dimensions as our cases.

Game Boy/Advance artwork stretches to 10.93 inches.  Generally this requires larger format paper (Legal size is 8.5x14, and is the most common option that still works in most home printers).  This can also be done on a printer capable of 8.5x11 borderless printing.


Genesis

Set the image dimensions to 10.7 inches wide and 6.75 inches tall.

Genesis art can generally be printed on regular letter size (8.5x11) paper, as long as your printer is able to print with a margin of 0.15 inches or less.


Nintendo/Super Nintendo/Nintendo 64

The final size should be 11.453 x 6.937 inches.  Simply adjusting the artwork to these dimensions will give you a passable result, but you may have issues where the front and back artwork are slightly intruding upon the spine.  We have a automation script for Photoshop which can help resize a Universal Game Case scan to fit our cases more accurately.

Artwork for these cases cannot be done on letter sized (8.5x11) paper.  For home use, this generally requires the use of Legal sized paper (8.5x14 instead of 8.5x11).
