DM's new cover designs
ATTENTION: It appears that the uploading site i used for downloading my covers is no longer available. If you know a good alternative, please send me a message or post in this thread. I will gladly reupload the covers for PS3T users once I have an alternative download location. Thanks for the interest and years of support!
Hi my name is dancingmind, but my friends call me dm for short. So as it was discussed in the OCD covers thread
, many are peeved that SONY has changed the way the cases look. I for one welcome the new design because it makes everything look crisper.
It does however make your collection not line up properly and for many that is ANNOYING.
Here is my solution:
The quick "tabs" fix
I designed new PS3 black tabs to replace the red ones of old. This will make your PS3 collection appear the same from the side! It is easy to do and doesn't require a super perfect print job. Just follow these easy steps:
1. Download the PDF and print it
Right click this link
and download the linked PDF to your computer. You can print these off at home to customize your cases yourself, OR put it on a USB drive and take it to a printing place to get a better quality print.
2. Cut out the tabs
Like the picture above you can cut out the tabs and make them ready for inserting. DO NOT do what i did in this photo and cut off the top off the tab. The idea is to have a blank white space on the top and then the printed tab at the bottom. This way you can fold the tab and place it in the case. The pictures following will better explain.
3. Place tab into case
Open up the PS3 case. Fold the new tab like the picture above.
Push the tab so that the white part is going behind the original print and the new printed part is under the plastic.
4. Enjoy the awesomeness
The best step.. Look at how they look the same from the side. Joy!
dm! It doesn't work for all my cases!!!!!!
Okay... it was a quick fix and it won't work for all PS3 cases. See... you need to have enough space so that it doesn't cover the title on the spine. See this example of Uncharted
And this is when i got into my Custom designed PS3 cases.
