Could you provide the dimensions of the marks, please? For those that was to just draw it freehand or don't have the program or whatever...

Excellent little applet!
And for those of us stuck in the US without a readily available source of A4 paper, it also seems to work just fine using US letter size paper!
 100% good instructable! That little bit of software is going to see quite a bit of use here. Thank you.
One of the best programs for making sleeves.
I might add that you can put your own images on the front that can be cropped right from the program. The text boxes are also movable and can be rotated so a track listing can be added to the front.
I knew how to do these but templates were hard to make in word ! thanks for the piece of software link
