Large Pro Box is discontinued

The Game Crafter - Large Pro Box Discontinued

After a 7 year run, The Game Crafter has decided to discontinue the Large Pro Box. The Large Pro Box served us well in the early days when The Game Crafter did not have a lot of options for packaging, but its inability to be fully printed is no longer representative of our customer’s needs and desires, especially when there are great alternatives available.
