About - updated 05/03/21

Well "us" is actually just one guy, me! I'm Mike and I do it all. I design, subcontract the manufacturing of the sleeves, and I now have my products shipped from a fulfillment center.I spent almost 15 years in the Canadian army as a combat engineer (CHIMO) and about 25 years in sales and manufacturing. My manufacturing experience covers a vast array of products and processes.

I hope you enjoy the products as much as I enjoy developing them and interfacing with you. I have received 1000's of emails and phone calls over the last 2.5 years and your comments and stories are wonderful.

My whole intent wasn't just to be another reseller of offshore products, but to make (In Canada/USA) innovative products that we the vinyl community want, instead of just settling for the standard products..

Thanks for your support and encouragement.

Mike

Ordered box set sleeves to fit my MoFi One Steps and shipped them all the way to Australia! Had to order many more than I needed to justify shipping but I think it will be worth it. Finally something out there that actually looks like it will do the job I’ve been waiting years for somebody else to do.

The box set sleeves are a true revelation. This is a breakthrough in protecting your box set collection and one I truly never thought we would have. Thanks VSS!

My local record store just started carrying your 2 mil inner sleeves. I told the manager what a wise choice they made, and sang the praises of your other products. I use your 3 mil inners exclusively (there is really no going back!!) and encouraged her to carry them. I hope to see more of your products hitting their shelves!

Hey Mike, I’m a first time buyer. I needed bigger outer sleeves for my larger gatefolds and MOFI was too small. I was upset! Until you saved me! I cannot believe your sleeves fit my NIN triple album “The Fragile!” I am so happy! Youngstown, Ohio now knows about you!

Question: I bought some “12 inch Single Flap (No resealable tape) Tuckable 4 mil Dual Pocket LP Vinyl Record Outer Sleeves” and I friggen LOVE them. I saw a video somewhere on YouTube where you were demonstrating these sleeves with a CRYSTAL CLEAR INNER SLEEVE as well (where I’m currently using the foggy rice paper type inner sleeves)…but I don’t see these on your website? Do you still sell crystal clear inner sleeves? thanks! Keep up the good work! My records look friggen amazing in these sleeves

Mike Love your products and it’s been a pleasure buying direct from you and corresponding with you. I certainly will be buying lots more from your new UK distributor, especially when circumstances allow the production of more clear inners. Dave 👍

I purchased the 4 mil gatefold sleeves and they are truly remarkable. I was watching the 33RPM podcast and wanted to see how good these were. They did not disappoint. Will be buying from Mike again. Thanks!

I’ve put my monthly bulk order for 3 mil rice paper 12” inserts, this follows other orders including outer sleeves. Being a collector 50 years, across most every musical category having the right products is super critical. Along with a wide range of items customized for a demanding customer base having someone back their products and word is indispensable.

Received a package today from VSS. In a very short time, I have become very fond of this company. Can’t believe it took me so long to learn about them. I love this company. I look forward to many more purchases. Thanks again.
