Hello
I know this topic is a bit old now but I would be interested in the scans too.
I have just ordered cardboard and supplies to make some boxes and making some designs now. Any scans would be interesting Lucasarts/scumm games and Amiga games :)

After a while I have made the first box. I waited like 40 days on a package with paper from the UK lol. Though I’m not convinced of the quality. I think I might be back to photo paper :shock:

Raziel you received a box from the OP back in the day? Was it printed on photo paper?

I can’t remember how to upload photos I’m not so used to forum nowadays :D

@Semsajah

Nicceeeee :-)

I'm not sure, at least it wasn't glossy paper.
Need to check when I'm back home.

What are the measurements of your boxes?

It is a bit smaller than original. The box is 155x210x40mm. So about 3cm narrower and 2cm shorter. The same thickness.
I think this slightly textured paper look good on the front cover, but found it is a problem on the back with small text not being clear.

I didn’t have time for more before I had to go away for work. When I come home again in 2 weeks I’ll try it again with a photo paper and see the difference and take photo of the back and inside.

I also made an original-ish looking design I have to try and print but it’s more difficult to work with then plain color :)

@Raziel would you be so kind to share your scans with me too?
I have a couple of original boxes I want to recreate to get rid of the stickers and blemishes, to create a similar-sized box as the rest, to make a translated box...

@sushi

Try also bigboxcollection.com There is many LucasArts games, all the Monkey Islands and others. Unfortunately many only in German.

@Raziel - I don't see your PM. I'll try again later because I've had similar issues with my PMs not reaching their destination. Anyway thanks in advance!

@Semsajah - I knew about that one but did not revisit it since a couple of years. The 3D rendering is a really nice touch - but they did not include the "boring" box edges.
