Slip Cases:

Slip cases are generally less expensive than clam shell boxes. Most often customers are encouraged to order a clam shell box because of the superior nature of the protection of the book from light, air, dirt and abrasion. A slip case is open on one side, revealing the spine. This lets light and dirt affect the book.

Titling and Tooling:

Titling, labels and other gold decorations are available and cost in a range from $15 and up, depending on elaborateness of the design and number of letters.
