LP Protective outer sleeves?

Recommended Posts

I have some rather flimsy outer sleeve covers for protecting my LP's but many are a tight fit or will not fit at all. Can anyone recommend some good quality covers, please?

Been looking at these:

I would say so. I had no problems at all getting the albums in.

Double albums also?

If you want strong thick vinyl you need 180gm. I've been using THESE ONES for years and at £30 per 100 they are stonking values.

Blake sleeves are often quoted as the ones, but I've always found them much too thin and flimsy for my liking

They do gatefold, again, no problems at all. I would imagine though that a double would fit in a regular cover.

I just checked, and yes, a double album will fit in a single sleeve. Obviously, a bit more of a snug fit, but certainly not tight.

I tried creating an account there to buy some Blake sleeves, but it seems they sell to the trade only as you need to give a VAT number. How did you get round that or are in in the trade?

Strange, I bought from them a few months back and was no problem. Maybe they've changed things, I'll go and see if I can order again.

Just tried to reorder and no problem.

Not sure why is not working for you.

Did you make sure you set it to GB for prices, maybe that might help.

I think I added everything to the basket and then registered my details on checkout.

Yep on this page here

There's no escaping it, the VAT number is a mandatory field when creating your account.

Hi,

I use covers 33 for there vinyl box set poly outer covers.

A word of advice to anyone thinking of using PVC LP outer covers Single or Gatefold Don't Even Think About It.

They are evil things that look nice from day one but will come back to haunt you years down the line.

They get brittle with age crack and split and worst stick to the album covers and wreck the art work.

Horrible things.

If you must use album outer covers?

Go with Poly.
