Default a double sided covers thought!

A while ago Anchor Bay released (the awful) 'Comittment' onto DVD in a double sided sleeve. What was particularly nice about this was that the version on the revrse lacked the nasty BBFC certificates we all hate having shoved in our faces all the time.

How about this at Shameless as well? No certs on other side sounds great to me, and will help give them that old pre-cert feel

That would be neat. I really like the idea of one side not having the certificate posted on the front, spine and rear. Nice one.

On the topic of double sided sleves, why does all the range not have them.?
Films like Killer Nun, Torso and NY Ripper only have one sided picture sleves.

Sounds like a good idea to me too.

I think the idea of reversible covers was introduced after the first few Shameless titles had been released. Correct me if I'm wrong but Late Night Trains was the first title to feature one.

Yeah reversible covers were originally poo-pooed when we were setting up and that's a pisser. I like the idea of no certs on the revers but then spines would start not to match etc - for Shameless 1 we should try and keep things uniform and not stir too much. I'm not sure we would drop certs though - as they're there it means at some point a store could sell them covers reversed.

Interesting thought though!

It's a great idea I think as well.I loved the Momentum reversable cover on the directors cut of The Devils Rejects.

Isn't there a way how you can only have the side with the bbfc certificate as the default front cover? If so I think the idea is great.
Embrace this moment. Remember, we are eternal, all this pain is an illusion.
