Hard cases can be customized and specifically designed to accommodate the contents. The packing material inside the cases may be cut in the pattern of the item or certain materials may be used instead of others.

Many hard cases come with handles and wheels to allow for easier handling and transportation. The materials and fabrication methods used to manufacture hard cases have an impact on the case's performance, especially in terms of strength, shock absorption and fracture resistance. Blow molding is a procedure that creates a hollow part by applying pressurized air to a stream of hot plastic. Rotational molding is the process of rotating a mold while the plastic resin is being shaped into its final form.

Plastic cases may also be formed through injection molding where hot plastic is poured into a mold cavity and left until cool. FRP plastics have fibers that must be woven, knit, braided or stitched together before they are bonded to the matrix, a tough plastic surface. Metal cases are made from thick sheets of metal that have been fastened onto a metal frame. The corners are often reinforced with steel to counteract pressure applied during transportation.
