Hi, I can have virtualboyfreak's box and manual design printed professionally. It would cost you $15 for the set. If there is enough interest I'll place an order. Post here if you're interested in purchasing one and I'll add you to a list. If I can get over 20 interested I'll place the order.

The design can be seen here:

Virtualboyfreak's box design is not suitable for printing. The box construction is incorrect and the graphics are not of a high enough resolution.

I actually own a commercial printing company, which produces boxes *just like this* all the time, so I made my own version of the design and graphics.

It's freely downloadable here :

and for instructions on putting the box together :

Feel free to use my design if you decide to have it made on a grander scale, but you should wait on the manual. I'm re-doing it, as well.

I was actually thinking about making a die so that I could design and die cut many different VB boxes for other homebrew games.

Could you print the box and manual and sell it for self assembly ?

I would love to get one of those boxes and manuals

Hi Colesonwilson, I agree with my box having the wrong dimensions. It's OK if you just print it in 3 parts (sides, front, back & up & low) and stick it to an existing GBA game box (check my collection pics), but it doesn't work if you want to build a professional box printing only one paper and folding everything. Your design is much better for that :-)

The problem I found with traditional printers is that the full box doesn't fit on a standard A4 paper. I think it was missing around 3cm (approx. 1-inch), or at least that's what I remember when I made it, but it was long time ago. Anyway, your design is just great, good work!

Here in the USA we have a paper size called "Legal" which is about 35.5cm x 21.6cm, so it fits perfectly with blank space around it. ;)

Your box design was the inspiration for mine - if I didn't have your creative design as a starting point, my design would never have come to be.

I knew about "Legal" paper, but I didn't know it was 35.5cm! A4 is around 29.5cm (width is more or less the same), so there go the extra cm needed for the box :-P I'll try to find some legal paper around to print the box you made. I'm really curious to see how it comes out. Thanks for the heads-up!

I'm working on one as we speak.

What I was thinking of doing, since I run a print shop, is making the boxes and manuals and then offering the pair up on here for anyone willing to pay the shipping cost.
