Boxes and Slipcases:

Slipcases, two-piece boxes and clamshell boxes all serve to protect and prolong the life of your books.


A slipcase is the simplest type of box used to protect a book. The book 'slips' into the case, with its spine showing.

A slipcase is constructed of binder's board and then covered with cloth or paper. It can be gold-tooled on the front cover or spine. Alternatively, the slipcase can be decorated by printing an image and/or text on the cloth covering the slip.

Clamshell Boxes

A clamshell box is an elegant way to protect any book. A clamshell box opens up like a book, and can be designed to mimic the look of an actual book. Clamshells can be covered with cloth, or designed with quarter or three-quarter leather bindings.
