If any of you have a collection of comic books, you know that the boxes – both long and short – come in white. Just plain white. They’re boring, and I’ve thought of decoupaging them or decorating them before because they are visible in my office. Someone has finally decided to make a business of providing decorated ones, but they need your help. Boxes in Action is a Kickstarter project that plans to make the boxes part of the collecting. They make vivid designs – starting with Captain America and Iron Man – in limited editions.
The Kickstarter project will help fund the design of the next box. I love the concept, but I’m not sure how they’re skirting copyright laws. Furthermore, I’m surprised that neither DC or Marvel has pursued something like this as a way to advertise their comics.
Check out another design and the project video after the break.
