Disk II Sleeves
I needed some sleeves for floppies. I stole the template from an Atari Post and added the Disk II Logo

I bought a bunch of brand new

I bought a bunch of brand new 5.25" diskettes about 5 years ago and they didn't come with jackets so I biult these visio drawings so I could print them on a color printer and have jackets for my diskettes.  

 

I used a little thicker paper and then cut them out with a metal ruler and razor knife.  You could cut through about 10 sheets at once.  

 

Then you use a glue stick to glue it together an wala --- 5.25" jackets.   I included a few in the zip file, but you can paste any image you want on them.

I knew there was something

I knew there was something about the Atari crowd that I liked....

 

But the back of that sleeve would look way cooler with the Beagle Bros warnings instead of the boring generic warnings.

I have used both standard 24 lb paper which is a little flimsy, but works, but I have found that 28lb paper works better.  Amazon has different vendors for the 28#

Feel free to chop crop and create, like I said I stole the idea! I may make some custom ones for myself  maybe with line art of a IIe. Even though not needed I thought about custom 3.5 inch sleaves.

Paper

Like jwg1962 says, a little heavier stick is better, I had some card stock, going to Staples tomorrow to buy something I'm between copy paper and card.

Same here.   Unfortunately you need to have visio or viso viewer for mine.   I just tore apart a real one, measured it and put it in visio.

Love it! And would like to

Love it! And would like to see the old original Apple labels like they had one the DOS 3.3 BASICS and DOS 3.3 SYSTEM MASTER disks. There's people on ebay making copies of the original disks and printing new labels and selling them for a reasonable 10 bucks for those that don't want to mess with ADTPro or just wanna get started. Would love to have that template or a good .SVG of it.

higher res

In theory now that I have the font. The issue is not having a good image of the apple logo without creating from scratch. I should be able to convert to an SVG in inkscape. Will play around later tonight.

Visio

I haven't looked for a visio clone but I use opensource tools like Inkscape and GIMP for any editing.

Great work! How nit-picking

Great work! How nit-picking of detail do you want? I want to offer feedback, but you don't have to do this for me.

The font prints beautifully, but the kerning is off.

There's some compression artifacts at the color changes in the logo.

The logo colors are lighter. Maybe you've already looked into this, but in my mind, the darker colors of the original look closer to what I remember from the time period. I don't have one handy to compare, though.

Unfortunately i don't have any more time this weekend to play, I did get vector copy of the Apple sans stripes. Maybe next weekend if I have time.

Full Vector

I lied, ended up wth time after dinner, here is svg with stripes.  everything is an object and can be edited in Inkscape or other software that supports svg. People can customize their colours or do with as they please. Thanks to @PTB for the vector Apple. This was a two fold project, make some easy sleeves and learn about Inkscape. I accomplished and now I shall drink and watch cheezy tornado movies on CTV sci-fi!

Looks great! And I was wrong

Looks great! And I was wrong about the logo colors being darker. I think the only imperfection left is the kerning. With so few letters, that could be fixed by making each character a separate text box.

Font is in an earlier post, but you'll have to make a custom "s" from scratch like I did. I used Inkscape and Font Forge under Linux.

What did you create these in? I'm able to view the Maxwell sleeve, but the rest show as black squares in LibreOffice on macOS.

SVG modified for blank back of original disks(if folded tab out)

Fold like orginals, or add you own back. I left outer lines people could round the edges however removed the inner lines and added fold lines on the corners that are removed when trimmed. SVG and PDF attached Package iconDisk-II Sleeve Disk II StripeFL.svg_.zip

Final Version...maybe

 

Will upload file tomorrow. Over on the book of face there have been people asking others who have printed these if they can order them. This is a free work I made and am happy to share with the community and I realize that not everyone wants to take the time to source the perfect paper or take the time to print , cut and assemble. What I would like to discurrage is profiteering. A reasonable and open cost recovery in the spirit of why I created these is fair. I do encourage everyone to try printing on your own inkjet use some glue and make a few. Your local office supply store will likely have a variety of good paper offerings. The final version has no graphics on the back so you can use what your favorite warning labels are. As I have mentioned download Inkscape and play around! Take the basic template and make your own labels. I will talk to Tom about a place to share the file as this thread is getting quite long. Thanks and happy Apple ii ya!

First of all thanks to Tom

First of all thanks to Tom Owad and PTB for there help in pushing this little "Quick I need a couple sleeves for some disks I bought" project to where it ended up.

So the final version is in the attached zip file (SVG and PDF). I have fixed the kerning, the letter sizes and leveling to the best of my ability without having a physical original in my hands. It is by no means being represented as an exact clone of the original sleeves.

Now some caveats the font that everyone is using for the Apple characters is Motter Tektura and is not exact, in particular the “k”, “s”, “i” and “d”....hmmm... the whole word! You can see in many peoples custom works the "s" is obvious the others you may not notice. For the “s” because it’s not even close I had to make a custom one in FontForge, for the “k” I had to shrink and then build on the branches with masking rectangles in Inkscape (the same with the “i” and ”d” but not to the same extent. Having said this if you do pull this into an SVG editor such as Inkscape be warned if you grab an object there are lots of layers you may need to move or adjust if you’re looking to play around, go for it though just make a backup!”

Again because this is for all intents and purposes a copy of original Apple copyrighted material I am not staking any claim to the production of these...however please don’t produce these for profit this is a production that’s intent was to share. Go to your local print shop if you don’t want to use up your ink or toner. As discussed on the Book of Face some people want a t-shirt, grab some iron on printer paper and go crazy. Enjoy, I’m on to my next project a W65C02S CPU adapter board based on The Byte Attic's circuit from his Pimp my 8 series back in 2020.

Enjoy

Saint

I made my own Apple Mother

Many years ago I created my own Apple Mother Tektura font with many of the variations that Apple made to the original Tektura font, this new font is in opentype format so it will work on a Mac or Windows based computer system. Since the font is custom made based on printed material it is not perfect but more than reasonably accurate.

This is another high quality

This is another high quality sample and as you can see a totally different small letter k, based on the original from apple.

The font being opentype will have all these letters as alternative characters, which will also include the outlined characters as well.

font

That's why I had to modify the k with masking in the final version (see the front page post, it explains the issues). Creating a new font isn't on my to do list that is why I was excited to see you were putting the effort in. You're a better person than me :)

Creating fonts is mostly

Creating fonts is mostly boring and tedious, it only gets complicated when you delve into foreign languages which can alot of work, if you're well versed in Adobe Illustrator than font making is just a small leap. I recommend Fontlab for doing so as it has alot of sophisticated features than eliminate alot of the time consuming problems you encounter doing this sort of thing.

 

I'm also working on the following typeface, which is really screwy. not Apple related, but retro nontheless.

It's one of the more unusual

It's one of the more unusual and obscure typefaces that ever was, at first I thought only Mits used it, one of them in house kind of things, however it was used elsewhere, so at some point in time it existed as a typeface anyone could use, beyond that and I've asked top dogs about it, no further info on it, so for the hell of it. Make my own..
