Does anyone know a good supplier for super jewel cases (the clear plastic DVD cases with curved corners)? I ordered some from Riviera Media but they turned out to be made of a very brittle, cheap-feeling plastic, whereas I have seen cases in shops that are of this design but made of a much stronger plastic (you occasionally see DVD movies in these types of cases).

I'm after the strong type, but judging from pictures on websites it's hard to tell what you're getting - does anyone know where I can get some?

Yes, just had a delivery of these (DVDandmedia.com) and they're not as well made as the commercial ones. Disappointing, but sort of not, as 30grams lighter, the postage will be cheaper. :) Maybe you can help me with this: http://forums.dvdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=51764 ?

Steve,

I buy from riviera and it's the branded Jewel box ones (logo bttom left corner) when they are seperate they do seem weak but their strength comes from completion i.e. when it's a finished case it is strong and firm

It did occur to me that maybe it's an illusion that the ones I've seen in shops are stronger than the ones I have (adding in the cardboard inserts will probably help). I'll persevere with these ones as it doesn't seem like any others are available.

To Arthur, I found a template PDF just by searching on Google, I can't remember where it was but it was easy to find.

Yeah, I've found several, but they seem more aimed at the pro mass production market. Stuck between 2 threads on this now. :o
