Finishing Touches : Getting Ready for the Holidays

We've been gearing up for the holiday seasons by adding more upcycled comic book cigar boxes to the ReInnovations shop.  Right now, these are our best sellers -- and they are so FUN to make.

Our store is now full of several Marvel and DC comic themed cigar boxes.  We even added a few special Neil Gaiman themed boxes. 

Here, you can see our artist, Chris adding a coat of glue to the box.  However, glue is not the only ingredient that goes into making these boxes look so awesome.  After two coats of glue, a special gloss finish is added to make the imagery on the box pop.

   Lately, we've been getting a lot of special orders for this item.  We are always up for putting together a box for your favorite superhero -- just send us a message.

You can find our comic book boxes at these locations online:


Special Order Comic Book Boxes

 Lately, ReInnovations has been making comic book boxes on request.  One of our orders was for a set of boxes for Groomsmen gifts for an upcoming wedding, a use we hadn't thought of.  Other orders are for the upcoming holidays. Here are the views for a recent make by our artist Chris.  He has been having fun with his new technique of cutting characters out of comic books and wrapping them around the sides of the box.  The look is pretty stunning.

Here you can see a nice piece of  artwork that wraps around the front clasp

A full 2-page spread appears inside the box.
