To add to my portfolio, I am hoping to include some of the coverart I have created.. however, some of them are from 3 disc shows. I havnt seen anything that seems to support a standard square front insert and back insert with tabs, that also holds 3 cd's- so my question is-

to those of you that use my art (and perhaps there arent any, after all? :P) what do you do/where do you buy from for shows that require 3-disc cases?

Thanks!

Don't use it myself but some people would put them in seperate slimtray's I'd say. Maybe do a version that says disc 1/2/3?

I would tend to get my storage from here: http://www.blankdiscshop.co.uk/acatalog/copy_of_Storage_Section___.html

Doubles is easy:

They have the slim ones that I use all the time to hold my backup DVDs. The problem is that the bottom of the case has pegs for holding the third disc, so you need to put little holes in the artwork to poke the pegs through so that the third disc can be held. Or, you have to do with the doublewide jewel case on the top of the page, which wouldn't hold the front cover artwork you've shown here.

That's the best you're going to do, I'm afriad.

I put my 3-disc shows in 4-disc "fatboy" cases - the front tray is the same size as the back tray. The only 3-disc jewel cases I have seen do not allow a back tray

I use these all the time for 2 or 3 disk shows. The 3rd disk is held in the cover with a heavy paper sleeve.

Works fine for me & holds the artwork just fine.

I use the "fat" ones for 3-4CD shows... I would love to get my hands on some of those slim 3cd cases!
