Why are slipcases junk in my opnion. They're not junk on their own but almost all big studio slipcases have the exact same artwork as the interior slipcovers.


THis makes no SENSE!!!! No sense!!!

If you have the same fu**ing image on the inside and on the outise why fu**ing keep the outside?

I just throw them away.


there are some smaller companies in which, thank God, the slipcases are totally different than the slipcovers.


Like Black Swan, the retail comes with the same exact slipcase as the slipcover...Makes no sense to me.


Why? Can someone give me a plausible explanation why slipcases with the same art as the inside exist?

They look nicer, make your collections look better. Specially when they are all lined up with other slipcases. Looks very clean. I love Slip Cases, and often won't buy a movie that was just released if it doesn't have one.

I'll also point out that slipcases generally allow for more vibrant color, spot gloss, embossing, foil stamping, and the occasional lenticular attachment. All things which give more "shelf appeal" to catch the eye of the casual shopper. Without a slipcover, consumers are often looking at cover art through two layers of clear plastic (the shrink-wrapping and the case insert), which, while still visible, can dull the artwork or result in some intrusive glare. Slipcovers also provide an additional layer of protection for the plastic cases during shipping and handling.

You are entitled to all of your own opinions, but I question the need for this thread. Especially when lillgrisen is posting an amazing thread that shows off how wonderful a collection can look when everything is housed inside of a nicely printed slip.

Seems to me like you're just trolling for an argument... or you feel you haven't spammed the homepage with enough threads today. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/8824.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/8824.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

No. This isn't spam.

This is a real question.

Ok, I get the appeal of some that the slipcases are made out of a thickers card and have a glossier refinement. That's an argument in favor which while not relevant to me might be to some.

The question for me is about the art. Why do a slipcase that has the same art? The exact same art? Woudln't it be better to have an inside art and a complementary outside art?



Oh and this isn't about lillgrissen. He often, as much as I can tell, prints several different artwork for the same movie, which in my view makes perfect sense.



The topic title may be misleading. i'm not saying that slipcases are usless in gerneral. I'm saying that for me, if the yhave the same artwork as the inside what purpose do they serve. I already obtained one valid response from RookerDesigns which is totally comprehensible.

If that's the only purpose of a slipcase then ok. I'm not a fan if they have the same art. I sometimes keep the slipcase when i like the art and change the interior art. It's only a question of why have the same art twice.

I think Rooker and I both provided explanations for the purpose of slipcovers.

I think the point of the artwork being the same on both the slip and the insert is so that customers know that it is the same product. Let's say for example that I walk into a store and see the blu-ray for Star Wars: The Force Awakens on a shelf. Some of the copies have slipcovers, others do not. Because the artwork is the same on both, I can reasonably assume that they are the same exact product... one is just missing its slipcover for whatever reason.

Now, if I go into the store and see blu-rays for Star Wars: TFA with a slipcover and blu-rays for SW:TFA without a slipcover AND different art, I might get confused. Is one a special edition? Does one have more features? Is one blu-ray and the other 4K?

I think most of us visiting this site are some form of a collector. We tend to follow the release schedules and know exactly when a movie is coming to Blu-ray and the different editions that are being released. This is not true for the average shopper... so keeping the artwork the same has a benefit.

You are allowed to not like slipcovers. I personally don't care if you keep them or trash them. I like them and will always try to buy a blu-ray with a nice and intact slipcover.

Perhaps if you want to start an informative discussion or get a sensible response to a question, it would be best to not begin your thread by labelling something as "junk," using censored profanity, and acting as though your opinion is somehow an irrefutable fact... especially in a community of designers who tend to value artwork and printed materials of all kinds.

Now that makes perfect sense!! Now I'm convinced. Thank you.

Ah, that's just the way I vent out my frustration or disagreement. Ido talk like that a lot when I'm with friends. I mean no harm(in the profanity) and the junk thing is just for a thread with more appeal (IMG:style_emoticons/default/icon_eek.gif)
