    Default Aftermarket Slipcases & Traycases

    This thread should be focused on anything to do with aftermarket slipcases. To kick things off, there's some interest to have custom cases made by Jeff Whiley for the Doubleday books. We can discuss here.

    I'm copying this below as it's relevant:

    Quote Originally Posted by stroppygoblin View Post
    To give folks an idea of cost, Jeff can get a plate made to pretty much any specification. Cost of the plate is directly related to the size. Anywhere between 8 and 40. Charge for slipcase averages around 13.

    Obviously the cost of the plate is a one off as it can be used again and again. A separate plate is required if the spine is to be embossed as well.
    Costs could be kept down by having the slipcases just embossed on the spine or just have a generic 'Stephen King' on the front (this plate is already made and would incur no additional cost)
    Personally I would like to have each one specific to the book, if we got 10 people to split the plate cost it becomes very reasonable (.80p to 4 each, depending on size)

    How much does one of his slipcases cost when you factor in shipping to the USA? Any guesses?

    Also does he already have a few premade plates? I wouldn't mind getting some cases for my none SK books also.

    The last time I ordered, it was 6 cases and postage was 18.25 to the USA. So if you figure 13 for the slipcase, plus postage divided between the 6, that's 16 each, so around $24 which is pretty good in my opinion. I'd recommend emailing him directly with any other questions you have. I know he has the standard "Stephen King" plates. Here's what I recently had done. Just scroll down a little.

    His email is: jeffrey.whiley@ntlworld.com

    OK - lets get the ball rolling on this....

    I have 3 separate slipcase projects I am intending to pursue with Jeff.

    1. A slipcase for Dolan's Cadillac S/L (I already have Merlin1958 signed up for one of these)
    2. A slipcase to hold all the Castle Rock Newsletters (This has not been mentioned before - anyone else interested?)
    3. A set of DoubleDay slipcases. (This one has the most feedback)

    For (1) I intend it to be just a stamp on the front (Nothing on the spine as the book already has the spine info). I'd like it to be a picture of the car with "DOLAN'S CADILLAC" above it

    Obviously the picture would be far less detailed as it will be just the basic car outline block filled.

    For(2) I intend it to be just a stamp on the spine (Nothing on the front) This will be the Castle Rock logo printed vertically and something like "The Stephen King Newsletter Vol 1 - 5"


    Now for (3) I am open to suggestions. I'd like something that ties the books together but I cant decide whether the slipcases would be facing in or out on my shelf... I'd also like to have the Book name done in the original font but that's going to mean 1 plate per book (as opposed to something like "Stephen King - The DoubleDay Years" which could be used for all 5 (or even 6 books if you include Pet Semetary)

    What does everyone else think - I'd love to see some ideas. Something like these (although slipcase rather than traycase) would be really cool...

    I think you would also have some interest in Justin Cronins S/L The Twelve by Cemetery Dance. A few of us want one.

    Hi Simon,

    So I'm excited that this is finally getting started after much discussion.

    Here's my thoughts:
    1. Dolan's Cadillac: Although I don't have a copy, I'm in for this one because when I do eventually get one, I'll have the slipcase.
    2. Castle Rock Newsletters: Yes for sure! I have a complete set and would love a slipcase for them. And I like how you've described it exactly.
    3. Doubleday years: I'm obviously in with this one because this is what started the discussion originally. Personally, mine will face out, so I don't mind if there's any printing on the spine or not. Although I'd prefer it on the spine as well like in those example images you posted. I also feel we definitely need each book name on the front in the original font. If we're doing this, let's do it right. If we get enough people to 'buy in', the costs won't be too high.

    I am happy to help with logistics, like maybe keep track of a list of who is interested in what? Let me know.

    yeah just knocked it up. (Getting the shining font right was a bitch)
    I'll do the others over the next day or so - it will give everyone an idea of how they will look stacked together.

    Okay, will do.

    That said, anyone else who wants to be a part of this, please let me know. I'll start to build a list and will double-check again before any orders are placed to make sure we have everyone. Please indicate which slipcase project you are interested in:
    1. Dolan's Cadillac
    2. Castle Rock
    3. Doubleday

    Details here.

    Currently, I have webstar1000 for Dolan's and burial for all 3 so you guys don't need to respond unless you're changing anything.
