We make custom packaging for media, and the media itself. Nothing is off the shelf here so we do not have on-line purchases. But you can browse and add things to your wishlist to help build your spec for a custom quote. Every title tends to have a unique spec because there are TONS of options. In fact, it can be hard to categorize products because they often overlap several categories! We’ve tried to create several main categories for your browsing.
- Vinyl Record Packaging
- Deluxe Box Sets
- Hardcover Books
- Discs & Packaging
- Various Add-ons: Slipcases, OBI, Booklets, etc.
- Packaging with Built in Video Players

Answer: a Tray

- DVD Sized 5×7″, 7×5″

Paper stock thickness is usually 15/16pt (310gsm), although we can go thicker…up to 28pt. Lamination is another way to add thickness. Types of paper include a crisp white, recycled, uncoated matte, and fiberboard.
