The two main types of enclosures are drop spine boxes and four flaps.

Drop spine boxes are more durable and are mainly used for rare or damaged books and other objects. Four flaps are very good for holding multiple items together, like pamphlets or single sheets of paper. They also can be used to protect small books, but are not as durable as boxes.

The links on this page will take you to pages with descriptions and photographs of these two useful enclosures.
