Hi all, I Go as the Fakecollector as im doing my own spin on collecting, So im looking to make my own box art and stuff for my own cases.

Im wondering what sort of printer would i want to get, To print good quality labels and box art and is there a specific DPI That say Modern games art sleeves come at? I dont want to go overboard on print resolution, I take it ill be using photo paper for most of my creations.

And i doubt ill do anything larger than the odd DVD style cover, If anything i want to keep the prints small, Like the JP Gamecube case style, Yet my cases are gonna be different for different systems, Small and space saving though Smiley

This is probably not the kind of things folks here on a collecting site would be supporting of, so I would suggest posting on the forums of http://thecoverproject.net/. Welcome to RFG!

When I scan my games for printing I go for no less than 600 dpi.  As for a printer, find a good laser photo printer.  A lot of one color is present on most box art so if you do use a ink printer make sure you can test it first.
