Slipcases can be used to dress up a title or to bundle multiple volumes together in a multidisc set. Generally these are made of art card paper stock and are collapsible but we can also make rigid slipcase boxes with a chipboard core.  We make slipcases in several styles including side loading and tube. They are well suited for special effects such as die cuts, foil, or spot gloss. We prefer to make slipcase sets with full sets of media that we are manufacturing for you, but if you already have the media/inner packaging made, we might be able to help.
