Default Slip Covers - Limited Time Only?

Are slip covers for blu-rays printed for a limited time?

I've noticed that I usually always get my new release movies from Amazon with slip covers. Older releases? Not so much. Same goes for new shipments in stores. I saw a BUNCH of new copies of Bolt at Best Buy with no slip covers today.

Usually, the same also applies to DVDs in most cases.

Yes, I've never seen an unlimited run of slip covers; if you want 'em, no waiting for the best sale. You need to be a "week one" buyer to be safe...

yep. they are to designate first runs/first pressings. some are super short supply. if you want them, you gotta buy 'em early, and in store, not online.

hell, just 2 weeks ago, my trick 'r treat from amazon came sans slip, and sans digital copy. already 2nd pressings

It was a pointless Digital Copy anyway, no iTunes support.

I just got a Pixar Collection Blu-ray in the mail with a mint condition slip from Amazon.com, some last longer than others. WB gets rid of them QUICKLY now.

Slipcovers are limited from certain studios. WB has a very limited run with their Combo Pack slips. IMAX: Under The Sea is a good example of having a limited slip and it just came out two weeks ago. Same with LOTR (animation).

True. But its very frustrating to find a certain slip that you need. Especially the rare slipcovers. I can't find Saw III and The Condemned

Almost every movie in my collection has a slip cover, aside from a couple of titles. Most of the movies I don't even care about, but I am still going to extreme measures to get a slip.

I need slips for the following titles:
Employee of the Month
Planet Hulk
Hulk vs.
Forrest Gump

But my biggest one I need right now is The Women. It wasn't a popular title on Blu-ray, but I think quite a few slips were produced for this release. Anyone have one they would be willing to sell?

Oh and I also want to replace these slips with better condition ones:
The Princess and the Frog: 3-Disc Combo Pack
Ratatouille
