I'm curious because the way they are now is too big to put in a CD case. Does anybody know the answer?
I googled it and couldn't find a straight answer.

That would depend on your printer and what program you are using to print the image. I would guess there is a general size in pixels, but I don't know it. You could print it with MS Word or something similar and use the ruler tool to make it the right size.

How big would it be in inches then?

Nevermind, I've figured it out myself.

The exact dimensions in Inches for the front cover are:
Height: 4.75"
Width: 9.5"

(I'm using Gimp. You'll need to set up your page to landscape view before printing so that it fits on the paper.)

And now the back cover:

Height: 4.625"

Width: 5.875"

And that's all there is to it. Enjoy! =P

Try googling "jewel case specs" or "jewel case measurements"...that type of thing

I've already got the measurements and now they are there for everyone else to use. =P

I used to use a program to print them myself, but we can use these dimensions to print on MS WORD I suppose? Cool. :D
