Media Manufacturing

You might think of a box as well, just a box. But we make deluxe boxes for media that are definitely thinking outside the box. You’ll find hinged boxes, 2 piece sets, side loading slipcase sets, sliding boxes, and fun folding boxes. We have special materials from rigid chipboard for sturdiness, to soft touch linen, vegan leather, textured fabric paper, and velvety soft lamination. Our printing effects such as foil stamping, embossing or spot gloss bring an extra touch of elegance to the box. Media Boxes are made all kinds of media types such as paper books, vinyl records, discs, or some combination of mixed media.  You’ll love our versatility!

Deluxe Box Sets - Wrapped Chipboard

Deluxe Box Set Packaging is generally made with a thick core material called chipboard. The chipboard gives the box sturdiness. However chipboard is not meant to be seen. We can wrap it with either a printed paper wrap which is laminated in place, or we can wrap it with a material like linen or faux leather.  The boxes can be made in a any size or shape.

  • Linen, Fabric, or Leather Wrap
  • Special Printing Effects
  • OBI / BellyBands are great add-ons.

Side Loading Boxes

Rigid Side Loading Boxes

Rigid side loading slipcase boxes are also made chipboard core material. These study boxes are formed and glued, and generally do not fold flat. The chipboard tooling requires a minimum width in order for us to wrap it. The products inside need to be about 2cm wide in order for us to use chipboard. For example 4 discs or records  in 2pp jackets can work, or a thicker packaging like a 4pp LP or digipak could be used, or a book could be added.  Chipboard can be wrapped with 4C print, or wrapped with a fabric paper, leather, or linen.

  • Minimum width 2cm
  • Printed 4C + Lamination
  • Wrapped with Linen, Fabric, Leather

Linen Fabric Wrap

We can wrap the box set with either a fabric like linen or hemp. These types of cloths have a fairly loose weave so printing is best done with a simple silkscreening design or foil stamping.

Fabric Paper Wrap

Fabric paper is a wonderful way to provide texture to a chipboard product. This type of wrap can be silkscreened and captures a good amount of detail. Many of our clients choose this type of wrap when they want texture and detail that printing on linen can’t achieve. The fabric paper can be ordered in several colors.
