The best way to protect and present treasured books and objects is to house them in custom boxes and enclosures. Boxes will be custom fit and personal touches will make them distinct.

Archival materials and methods are used to ensure the book is protected for now and the future. Big River’s boxes are appropriate for everything from  your new wedding album to historic family bible.

Boxes can be made for any size book. Larger books, like this Family Bible, needs a box with double walls for extra strength.
