Portfolio Binding and Boxes

Box & Portfolio Binding Services


The production of boxes is one of key specialties. We produce boxes for many individuals, corporations and institutions. Whether the boxes are made in cloth, linen or genuine leather, they add a level of class and authenticity to your book projects. The boxes can be made as slipcases or clamshell boxes. Clamshells are particularly popular: they completely insulate important and rare books and papers from harmful sunlight, ultraviolet light, humidity and polluted atmospheres. Custom clamshell boxes and custom slipcases can be foil stamped or silkscreened with titles, graphic designs and logos.

Our staff can create a graphic design for your clamshell or you may send files that can be converted to magnesium, brass or copper dyes which are then hot foil stamped onto the boxes. There is no clamshell box too large or small, or no clamshell or slipcase to large or small that we cannot produce. We offer quality slip cases and clamshell boxes with quick turnaround.
