    I please dont take this post as an add, but i recently have found an amazing site that dedicates into making High res scans and of Nintendo game boxes and manuals, from NES to N64 and GBA, now you probably are thinking that is only the front artwork, but no its the intire box, you have it ready for print to replace or add to your collection, all the boxes have been edited to have a "Reproduction sign". Now i have been using this for a while and i hope that you guys not only start using it but some of you may also contribute to the site there maybe scaning your own boxes or even "clean up" the ones that are already there, the only downfall is that the site is compleatly french but nothing google translate wont solve.
    This is a comunity efford and if we all help, we may keep those fragil cardboard boxes preserved forever.

    Have fun guys and post what you think of the site.

    I like your post. I mayby try to get some to complete some caseless games.

    That's neat but I don't know that many people have printers that would do the original box justice. It would be nice to have new boxes for some old games.

    yeah but for example for SNES boxes they use a paper with a thickness that is no longer produced so its kinda impossible to have a really almost original replacement i read that in the site forum.

    There's nothing like a game completely with the box...all my games are boxed, so this is a really good site if you are missing the original packaging and you can print it on your own. Nice one! I also like to look at the sometimes different artwork from the PAL and NTSC boxes.

    I'm all for something like this but you will never get the quality from something not printed professionally.

    I would love for someone to make and sell some professionally made replicas. I would pay good money too but if I'm paying then I would want an exact replica. Not something with reproduction stamped on it.
