There seems to be a few people having random problems with the graphics size. It is unknown the reason behind it but I recommend printing a trial photo on printer paper on draft settings to check if yours will work. Check out the troubleshooting section if you are running into problems. I recommend using Google Chrome as it seems to work flawlessly.
If you have a request for a custom cover just let me know in the comments below and I'll see what I can come up with. If you are interested in non-gaming themes just link to me to your pictures (must be high quality, these are 2325x1125 pixel images).
You can download the template I use for the covers here: Crystal Case Template
Then check out the how-to video on creating your own: How-To
Custom Crystal Case Covers:
PRINT IN PORTRAIT MODE (unless noted otherwise)
In my Playstation Vita Accessories video I mentioned creating custom covers for PDP's Crystal Case. Each custom cover I created is specifically sized to fit perfectly within the case. To see it how it looks inside the case (NOTE: I used a low quality print out to display that it actually fits, I recommend printing on photo-paper at your printer's highest settings) check out this video. Please realize that not all of the image will be displayed in the case as there is only a rectangular window. All the important pieces of the image: logo, face, background, etc. will be visible.
If you find a cover you like simply enlarge it, right click + open in new tab/window and then file -> print it. Make sure you print in portrait mode. Cut around the edges and slip it into your case. It should be a perfect fit! If you are having trouble printing the cover at the right dimensions check out my Troubleshooting Section. I personally recommend using Google Chrome as it has worked flawlessly.
Here is what the cover will look like in your case:
|Custom Cover in Case Example|
Uncharted: Golden Abyss:
Super Stardust Delta:
Modnation Racers: Road Trip:
Army Corps of Hell:
Dragon Ball Z:
Street Fighter x Tekken:
Sony / Vita:
Mass Effect 3:
New England Patriots:
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3
Resistance Burning Skies:
Final Fantasy VII:
Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation:
Persona 4: The Golden
Sorry for how long this one took.
Be sure to pass this around to your friends and check back in the future for more custom content!
Comment below for more cover requests!
The crystal covers are excellent. How about Everybodys Golf & Chelsea FC on Fifa.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your support!
I just uploaded Chelsea FC for backgrounds and covers. Let me know what you think!
I'm looking into creating Everybody Golfs, I'll get back to you on that shortly.
Thanks Jon, thats absolutely fantastic, just looking forward to getting my Vita on Weds 22d. The covers are all excellent and they look fantastic printed on glossy photo paper.Delete
David aka darkdeathreapa
I am glad you love the covers! Thank you for your support.
Be sure to check back Thursday for some very special video content I have planned for the Vita launch.
Just to say, keep up the good work, the covers, backgrounds & videos are all excellent. Any chance of a Miami Dolphins cover for a fan from the UK?
hey can u add ome socom ones please thats my fav gaameDelete
Hey, Mark again. Could you make a celtic vita background? Thanks :DReplyDelete
I added the Celtic background under the "Customize your Vita: Backgrounds" tab.
i see you site on amazon review and you have done so many amazing ones.
I have vita on pre-order, some for us girl gamers would be just so great
I just uploaded some backgrounds designed for girls. Do you have any specific requests or do the ones I designed fit your need? They are mixed in with other cases because as though they were designed with girls in mind, I didn't want to seclude them to a "Girl Themed" section.
Hola Jon :)Delete
no i understand no need for a section but i see you have updated now and there are some very good ones to choice.
I really adore the Zelda ones you have done and the abstract. There seems a new theme for each month
Perhaps when you no so busy there can be the odd Final Fantasy added but i feel i can speak for all and say you have done amazing job and i am very glad to of found them and look forward to trying them. more need to find you blog and enjoy these
Waiting for my Vita now,
Leo again, could you possibly resize that second Zelda background you've posted to fit the case?ReplyDelete
And is this picture the proper resolution or size or whatever?(I'm not tech savvy lol)
It'd be great if you could resize that ^^^^^ to fit the case as well.
I added the Zelda case as a cover, let me know what you think of the new design!
I also added your Tribal picture as a background and cover.
That's great! Thanks a ton.Delete
I really like the Courage/Wisdom/Strength addition on the triforce.
In fact, could you possible make a cover without the Courage/Wisdom/Strength words so I could have them front and back? (one with the words and one without)
That would be perfect.
The Zelda Background without the text is uploaded!
I've followed your post on GameFaqs. Is there anyway to make a Detroit Lions cover? I don't mind trying to find a picture to use, but I can't seem to find a 2325x1125 picture.
I can create a Lions cover and background for you. The images do not need to be 2325x1125 but the larger the better. If the image is at least 1000x1000 it tends to stay pretty clear but depending on the original quality can lead to a blurry pixelated image. Basically anything higher than 1000x1000 for the main image should be ok, but the bigger the better. Feel free to link me to your pictures or if you have no personal preference just let me know here and I'll create one on my own.
Wow, thanks for getting back to me so fast! Here is a link to the basic, new logo the Lions have.Delete
I really appreciate you taking time out of your day to do this. Thanks again. I can't wait to see how it turns out.
Ill get started on it right now, the Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 cover was getting real frustrating. It should be on the site within the hour.
I just posted covers and backgrounds for Detroit Lions.
Let me know what you think,
Oh wow! Those are amazing. I was just expecting the same old pic I posted! Looks great! Gonna get those downloaded and printed for my case asap. Thanks again. Wow!Delete
Im glad you like them so much! I had a lot of fun doing it and got to try out a few new things.
Thanks for your support!
I posted a picture and instructions how I got it to work for me in the post on Gamefaqs. Once again, I want to say thanks for doing the Lions case for me. It looks awesome.Delete
I would love a Lara croft cover since I am a big fan of hers. I would appreciate it if you can make one. :-DReplyDelete
I have a background of hers up on the site but I will definitely look into creating a cover in the next few days!
Thanks so much for these I have added your site to GBAtemp and will link to it everytime I get a chance.ReplyDelete
Great work you deserve more traffic ;)
A Dragon's Crown background would be nice.ReplyDelete
Could you do a Tottenham Hotspurs Fifa cover? That would be quite awesomeReplyDelete
There are 2 different backgrounds right now for the Tottenham Hotspurs and I'll work on getting covers up within a few days.
In anticipation for the HD release of it, how about some Zone of the Enders?ReplyDelete
There are a few backgrounds right now for Zone of the Enders and I'll work on creating some covers for you.
And by a Tottenham Hotspurs cover I meant background/unlock screen!ReplyDelete
Well... I guess I didn't screw this up. There are 2 backgrounds under the background tab!
could you make one with a black background, with a simple Sony logo (front) and one with a Vita Logo (rear). It would be much appreciatedReplyDelete
Done and done.
Id love to see something anime style like the classics...Gundam, Cowboy Beebop, Outlaw Star,etc.ReplyDelete
can you make one with doctor who: the eternity clock and leave a space for me to add my PSN name, that would be great thanks.ReplyDelete
by the way I meant a cover not a bckgroundDelete
Would you be able to make one from the anime FLCL?ReplyDelete
Done. Be sure to check out the backgrounds I made too for FLCL too!
Hey Jon just recently found your blog and so far what i've read has been spot on. Anyway I had a request could you do more on metal gear. more specifically could you do a case and background that just had a bunch of the metal gear characters (ie. Snake, The Boss, and Raiden) from like all of the games. Oh and if you could add some form of emblem from the game that would be great.ReplyDelete
Ps. love all the other cases and backgrounds
Hey Jon sorry I didn't ask this in my last post but I figured why I am at it maybe you could do something from the lord of the rings. Maybe something more from the movies than from the games. Anyway I'll leave it up to you cause I am not that creative. Oh and if you don't have time don't worry about it I understand.Delete
Oh and I had a question about the Vita. Does it have its own media management software for the pc for like storing media and downloading games from the pc?Delete
I put up more backgrounds for Metal Gear and will work on creating some more covers along with your Lord of the Rings request.
As for the Vita's PC media management, the only way to transfer movies, games, music, photos from your PC to Vita and vice versa is through Content Manager. You can also back up your Playstation Vita to your PC.
You can download it here: http://cma.dl.playstation.net/cma/win/en/index.html
Simply install the application and connect your Vita to your PC. Then open the content manager application on your Vita and you'll be good to go.
Let me know if you have any more questions here or by email at Nohons@AllThingsGaming.net
Hey thanks Jon for the Metal gear backgrounds. I showed my bro and he was all amazed. Anyway I checked out the media software and so far it has worked reall well. You saved me a lot of time. It would have taken me forever to find it. So keep up the good work and you now have a permanent fan for the blog.Delete
Glad you and your brother liked them! Glad to help and thanks for your support.
Hey Jon, these are awesome. I am currently using the rayman ones. Would it be possible to make some disgaea 3 covers? Backgrounds and/or lockscreens would be cool too but covers would be amazing.ReplyDelete
Can you do a dust 514 cover, I would appreciate that! Thanks.ReplyDelete
Oh, Jon, I forgot the post above is mine and I forgot to put my signature, but if it wouldn't be to mush trouble could you do a halo, if not that is also okay,ReplyDelete
Hey Jon could you add one for the New England Patriots. That would be really helpful for me. ThanksReplyDelete
The covers are really awesome. :DReplyDelete
But i have a problem.
The size of the printed pictures don’t match the custom crystal case.
So my question is how do you recommend to print this.
Check here: http://www.allthingsgaming.net/2012/02/custom-cover-troubleshooting.html
and I recommend trying google chrome first to print from browser because that seems to work flawlessly for everyone.
Thx man. the troubleshooting section helped a lot.Delete
you are making a lot of people happy with your work so keep it up :D
I have no artistic skill so I wanted to make a request - could you make a Darth Vader/ Boba Fett Star Wars style set of Inserts? You would be my hero.ReplyDelete
Hey Jon, personally I am not a big fan of realistic shooters, but I think it would be appreciated be many other gamers. Could you do a Call of Duty? Thank you.ReplyDelete

Heey! Awesome covers!! I'm thinking about getting the crystal cover and I think you might have convinced me to do so hahaha So I'll blame it on you! Say, is there a chance you could make Harry Potter covers or backgrounds?? That would totally make my day! :DReplyDelete
Very nice covers. Is there any chance of you making some Dragon's Crown ones?ReplyDelete
