Default Vhs packaging for blu rays

Has anyone ever come across any packaging that looks like a black plastic vhs case that can fit a dvd/Blu ray disc in it? As they are now they are slightly too small to fit a disc.

I love the Stranger things vhs packaging and it got me thinking about the above idea.

I could print out my own vhs covers (after some resizing) and slip them into the plastic sleeves for a nice vintage look.

Although it sounds like a cool idea, the VHS cases are much thicker than DVD/BD cases and would take up lots more space on your shelf.

What you are describing is essentially a jumbo SteelBook. They exist but most people hate them.

Why is this in the digibook forum?

Target came out with an exclusive VHS cover for Stranger Things several months ago. This could give you an idea of a template to make your own VHS blu-ray covers.

The dimensions don't quite work out, with a disc being wider than a tape. And the thickness leads to a lot of wasted shelf space. I much prefer the VHS-style slipcovers that Walmart had recently.

Are you talking about the Target releases that were in a taller VHS case? They had Fletch, Slap Shot, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Backdraft... among a few others.
