Since i have a few loose Konami MSX cartridges laying around i decided i wanted to make some boxes to protect them.
I downloaded some ready made Konami boxes from a website, but since they are a bit taller then the cartridge they are a bit flimsy.
After going to the MSX retrofair in Nijmegen i noticed some new MSX cartridge releases that used a small slip in cover that contained the cartridge. I decide this was the kind of cover i wanted for my loose cartridges.
So after spending a few hours i've come up with this. Still needs a little work, since colors are way of and the box is a little to wide, and the cover is the wrong way around (I wanted the cartridge opening on the right.), but it's a start.

Today i fixed a few problems with the box i made yesterday. Added a few screenshot on the front to fill in empty space because of resizing the original box art to fit this size. And rearranged the back, side and top to fit.

Starting to look professional Seob!

I don't know much on the original boxes but these look convincing.

Looks very professional, especially the 'glossy' look.
This is not printed with a 'common' inkjet/laser printer I guess ?

I used my hp officejet 4500 to print this, so the printer isn't that special, but I used Olmec Optimum satin 260gsm photo-paper. That's special photo-paper we bought for my wife when she was attending school to become a professional photographer.
The next cover I print, I will try my wife's Epson Stylus Photo R2400, a semi professional a3 photo printer, if the ink doesn't need to be replaced.
