Slip cases & Clamshell boxes

  • For many years we have made slip cases and clamshell boxes. These boxes are made to an exact size to hold the books or documents. These can then be lettered on the outside to personalise. Both are strong protectors and can be covered in various materials and lettered or a label attached. Clamshell boxes are often used to hold expensive bindings, very old books, wedding albums or collections of papers or photographs. All our boxes are made to exact internal requirements.
