    First off, I have to thank Beatter for his work on the original box art.

    I've highly modified his original box art to provide the most authentic label you can get. All you need is a nice sheet of glossy paper, a printer that actually isn't crappy, pro cutting skills(Please ask your parents to help you if you are six or younger*), and a DS game box, and you can have your own professional looking Acekard 2i box!

    (I tried to do the printing myself, but I find myself short of "the printer that isn't crappy", and the "nice sheet of glossy paper", so it looked like crap, but if you have those, it'll look grrrreat!)

    although, I dont have and acekard (heck, I dont even have a DS! xD) it's nicely done!

    I like how it says "Not licenced by Nintendo" and then it's says "Licenced by Nintendo" :lol:

    Thanks for alerting me to that foul contradiction! It will be fixed when I get around to making a decent background.

    It only says for sale or rental in Mexico, Canada, and the U.S? What happened to the other countries in the world? XP

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    Protip: If you don't have a spare empty DS case laying around the house, you can get one from GameStop (or whatever used game store you have in your area). They can usually give you one or two for free if you ask ;)

    Nice work, Click This!

    And I don't know if this is of any help, but here are some high-res scans of the actual Acekard box (front and back):
    Download

    Maybe you can use it to sharpen up those icons on the back side a little bit (if you want).

    *EDIT 1*
    Just throwing another idea out there, but in that empty space where you took out the ESRB rating, maybe you can put in the logos for akAIO and MAIO.

    *EDIT 2*
    I like how this guy used the actual barcode from the box. Yours currently uses the one for Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow. Not really a big thing, but I just wanted to offer suggestions for improvement :grog:

    I had a go at this, all I netted was a cheap, beaten down, 3rd party box. Hey better than nothing, but Nintendo also sells the boxes bulk, $7 for 10, which isn't too bad.

    @[member='egg']: Nice job! Too bad the gbatemp uploader resizes images though, that doesn't help printing quality. >.

    I guess it just depends on the store, what day you go, and who you ask. I've done it a few times before and have always gotten decent cases. One of those times the employee gave me a crappy case, and I asked him if he had a nicer one and he actually found one.

    But if anyone wants to order DS Game Card Cases (as they're technically called by Nintendo themselves):
    10 for $7 (gray)
    5 for $4 (red)

    They also sell them individually ($1 per case).

    I've just done my own Acekard 2i DS box cover, as I was looking for references while I was making it, I found this thread. I figured I should share what I've made because it might help others out.
