Sugar Hill: A Retrospective celebrates the record company's more than 25 years in the business. The collector's edition includes four CDs and one DVD, each in individual paperboard disc sleeves, as well as a booklet, all boxed in a package created by NAPCO, Sparta, NC. The rigid paperboard box has a full telescoping design in which the lid slides completely over a specially designed footed tray for a prominent box appearance. The print provides an opulent look and feel with contrasting textures of high-gloss black foil-stamped areas over printed matte cover paper. NAPCO designed an interior platform for disc sleeves and booklet to boost retail shelf presence by increasing box height dimensionally.
