We are doing a Tom Ze box to be released this October. Box sets are about as much work as you would think they would be, what with the production of all the parts and making sure everything is on schedule etc. One of the production aspects is the making of the actual box. Today Mat and I went out to Capital Box to hand number the boxes they were assembling.
I love old factories and just watching things being made, especially at places here in the US where things are made way they have been for ever.
Here are the machines Capitol Box uses to put together our limited edition box of Tom Ze vinyl:
After Capitol Box we went to 21st Century Finishing, a much more modern facility as you can tell from the name. I mentioned to them that it was a good thing they were 21st Century, and they said as a matter of fact they have been 21st Century for the last 20 years! Ahead of the curve I guess.
Here we put the gloss finish on the box which they did in between working on a Barbie package!
