    Custom slipcases

    Trying to find a good company to get some slipcases made -- I've found a few companies online, but loathe to give them my business without a recommendation. Anyone have a recommendation on a slipcase maker that they've been happy with?

    I'm sure someone here has a few contacts. The only time I've purchased one for myself is from bookslipcase.com. They do custom made wood slip and tray cases. They do great work.

    There is a guy in the UK who does great work. Usually in the $30 range with shipping. His name is Jeff Whiley. I don't have his email anymore. I'm sure someone here can provide it for you. He can even do custom foil stamping but that will cost more due to the plates needed. Here is an example:

    Looks like an existing thread had his e-mail information. $30 with shipping is a great price. I'm now contemplating one or more actually.

    I can second that sentiment. Awesome cases, but a little more pricey.

    Got my first batch of slipcases in from Jeff so I thought this thread would be a good place to post them:

    I think so too Dan but I really like the textured feel of the ones you guys produce over at CD. My Finders Keepers is scheduled to arrive today . I tried to delete The Green Mile slipcase shown above as that's just an example photo from Jeff that I accidentally attached :-/.

    Oh totally. I like ours as well, but it's just a completely different style. We tend to try and match the design of the books dust jacket instead of creating a cohesive look across all of the cases.

    And that's what I really like about the cases that you guys produce, Dan. I'd really like to see you guys produce more for older titles but I'm not sure what the demand would be in order to make it profitable. I missed out on some because I discovered you guys too late.

    Yes he does, Theli! I'm really please with them.

    Now the fore mentioned case that arrived today

    I think the Finders Keepers case came out great. Not my favorite of the King cases, that'll go to Revival, but still pretty darn good, in my opinion.

    Plus I like how they'll all be similar for the trilogy. Really looking forward to see what you guys did with Bazaar.

    Love those cases. Glad I finally did order them, in spite of the incredible shipping costs.
    They're on their way!

    2nd batch of 1st/1st slipcases from Jeff. Hopefully someday I'll actually be able to place said books into the ones I'm missing :-/.
