I had read the discussion on stackpacks when the dub of Clannad was announced but didn’t know what it was about until I got my copy. After trying to get the disks off the stackpack spindle I knew I had to get rid of the case, but I wanted to have a case where the cover from the stackpack would fit.
I did some searching online and found a distributor that looked like it would be easy to work with and not too expensive-most distributors would only sell in case lots of 42 to 100, or wanted twice as much for shipping as for the cases themselves! I found a company, US Plastic Corp., that has 1" wide DVD cases that can hold anywhere from 3 to 8 disks (the number is determined by the number of inserts in the case)and one that is 1 3/8" wide that can hold 10 disks. The four disk version is only $1.04 a case. I bought five at $5.20 and shipping was only $5.46, for a grand total of $10.66 or $2.13 per case. I figure that I’ll need one for Clannad, one for Tears To Tiara, one for Ghost Hound, one for Clannad After Story (if the dub rumors are correct) and one for a future purchase (my personal preference would be Special A.) I ordered the cases on Friday and just got confirmation for shipping that indicates they’ll be here Wednesday.
If anyone is interested, here’s the website:
and here’s the link for the item I ordered:
I’ll let you know my impressions of the cases after they arrive.
