Custom Slip Cases

Quality slipcases are a Brimar specialty. Slipcases provide a durable, yet elegant package for any set of print publications or digital media. Since Brimar is a custom slipcase manufacturer, we can manufacture your slipcases to fit your product perfectly. Our machinery requires a 5,000-10,000 slipcase minimum.  We cannot make less than that.  Most customers realize that purchasing a two-piece set-up box is a great alternative for smaller quantity orders.

INTRODUCTION TO SLIPCASES

Slipcases are considered a high-end product in packaging. Using heavy chipboard and quality coverings, they are one of the strongest, yet elegant styles of packaging available today. Slipcases are made by specialized equipment that wraps paper around a chipboard shell. The paper wrap can be plain white or have a theme or patterned print. It can be flat or textured. It can even be a foil paper or cloth. Custom graphics, such as a logo or photographic image, can be printed or foil stamped on any paper that is wrapped on a slipcase. Your options are endless, so ask your Brimar representative to explain all the options available. We will help you create the unique slipcase that will help your product sell better than you ever thought possible.

BENEFITS OF SLIPCASES

Slipcases are strong enough to protect your product. From magazines to audio cassettes, from books to DVDs, all have been safely packaged in slipcases. Strong slipcases also add aftermarket value to your product. When you add your logo or contact information to your slipcase, you're creating a sales tool. Because of your slipcase's strength and durability, your customers will display your slipcase on their shelves for years to come.

Many Brimar customers choose our slipcases because of their quality. Your customer will consciously transfer the high quality of a slipcase to your product, adding value and ensuring your customers that they are buying quality. Brimar's slipcases have no unsightly, raw edges associated with other, inferior styles of slipcases.

Because slipcases ship to you already assembled, you will save the labor cost associated with other styles of packages because NO assembly is required. However, our slipcases can take up valuable warehouse space. That's why we offer custom stocking programs to take the burden out of your warehouse.

GRAPHICS FOR SLIPCASES

Graphics can make or break your slipcase. Add a simple, one-color line art logo or a vibrant, four-color photographic image to your slipcase. Brimar Packaging offers process printing, foil stamping, and embossing for your slipcase, inside and out. Plus varnish, aqueous, UV coatings, and film lamination can be added if needed. The options for your slipcase are limited only by your imagination.

Process Printing
You can add graphics to your slipcase with conventional printing. One or two color line art on white or colored paper is most cost effective. But it's the rich, four-color process, photographic images on your slipcase that catches the consumers' eye.

Foil Stamping
Add a look of distinction to your slipcase with foil stamping. You can achieve a brilliance that cannot be duplicated with ink. A wide spectrum of matte, gloss, metallic, or holographic foils are available. Combine the perfect foil color with one of thousands of colored, patterned or theme papers to achieve a look that fits your corporate image.

Embossing
Through embossing, Brimar can add texture by raising your graphics off your slipcase. You can add any pigmented or shiny foil stamping on top of the embossing, or keep it "blind" for a classic, elegant appearance. Blind embossing is the creation of a raised image that is not foil stamped, and the resulting raised image is the same color as the paper. Create a picture through texture with blind embossing. Embossing your slipcase will add value and class.

Coatings
You can add a layer of protection or a gloss or matte finish to your slipcase by coating the wrap. Choices of coatings include varnish, aqueous, UV or film lamination. For simple logos, varnish often adds enough extra protection to prevent the printing from rubbing off your slipcase. Aqueous coating is harder than varnish and offers the protection needed on heavy print coverage. UV coating really makes the difference by making the images pop off the paper. Film lamination is used to provide protection when no other coating will do.

Adding graphics will increase your product's value, communicate product information, establish brand recognition, convey marketing messages, and separate your product from your competitors'. Why settle for a plain "slipcase", when graphics can be added for a minimal charge to create a great "package"!

CHIPBOARD FOR SLIPCASES

Chipboard is the base substrate we use to manufacturer your slipcases. Thicknesses range from 0.030" to 0.100". Ask your Brimar representative what thickness will work best for your slipcase. Knowing the weight of your product will help determine the thickness of the chipboard used.

Brimar has four colors of chipboard to choose from that will be exposed on the inside of your box. From least expensive to most expensive, your choices are chip, white, chocolate, and black. Laminating the inside of your slipcase with a colored or printed paper is also an option.

WAREHOUSING FOR SLIPCASES

Slipcases ship assembled. However, your limited warehouse space shouldn't make you settle for other, inferior styles of slipcases that ship flat. Store your top quality slipcases at Brimar. Take advantage of quantity discounts, special financing, finished goods insurance, and inventory control by allowing Brimar to store your slipcases and release all or part of your boxes only when you need them.

Before you place your order, our salespeople can tell you exactly how your slipcases will be packed. Knowing how many cartons or pallets your slipcases consists of is essential when determining if your warehouse space will fill beyond your expectations. If space is an issue, then you can store your slipcases at Brimar.
