Question About Retail Artwork?

Postby alienmem » Apr Thu 20, 2017 12:58 pm

Where do you find good quality images of the retail backs of covers, so you can see the legals and fine print?

Thanks for your help

Right here on the site, scanned covers are all retails, but you can get the legals from templates also and create your own for your cover.

Ok, I should've phrased it another way. Where to find the retail back covers for movies not on the site?


Say you're making a cover and you just wanna do the legals as the retail. You know, that boring stuff every cover needs.

Where do you go? Google doesn't have back covers for most films.


Anyone?

Blu-ray.com, the link is on the home page at the bottom, often has decent sized copies of the retail backs after they have been released, also in their forums they will, if you look, generally have the press release info put out by the studio for new releases, they only do Blu though nothing for DVD.

DVD Empire is more accurate generally for specs they have art but it is usually small.

Beyond that it is a crap shoot, there is no one magic go here get all you need with one stop shopping type site out there, if you are looking for that you are sadly out of luck.

Too many studios and distribution companies for that, they all like to do things their own way and only a few even release the art publicly anyway, most of what you find on the web is either scanned or scavenged by John Q Public then added to sites like Bluray and others, so there is no discipline or consistency, just whatever this person or that person feels like doing.
