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 4 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.

Best sleeves ever! Outstanding product! Compared to what’s out there these sleeves are a no brainer! They look really good, they fit perfectly, and the flaps are so practical. I dealt with Jessica and she went above and beyond to accomodate me, and on top of that they are super fast! 10+ in all respects!

Bittersweet news with Mike moving onto other ventures. Reason being Mike was such a pleasure to deal with and such an honest and genuine guy. Very big shoes to fill, but Mike would never leave his company to just anyone, so the new ownership is undoubtedly of the same calibre.

Every album I own is protected by these wonderful products – I look forward to continuing to support this great Canadian success story!

Mike – thank you for your insight and conversation over the past few years.

You will be missed.

I wish you all the very best in your next adventures.

thanks for the awesome products ,very fast delivery,and i always like to support local

Thank you SOOOOOOO MUCH for securing a different UK/European retailer of your amazing products! Since I discovered VSS—around 2020—I have literally never looked back! Just put in a modest order at your UK distributor (soooo much better than the last gang of crooks and upsellers you went with—hey—I’m not criticising you here Mike!—but they were absolute snakes and they still owe me for a pack of your sadly discontinued crystal clear inner sleeves….whilst trying to sell me £10,000 turntables. I know this isn’t your fault but how those guys are still in business, I don’t know!)
Anyway! I did not write this comment to complain but to heap praise on your amazing product. Can’t wait to try out the gatefold outers and your rice paper inners! Of course had to stock up on double-flap, double-pocket 12" outers too…My obsession with The Fall has led to a serious 7" habit so bought some 7" double pockets and corresponding outers.
Mike, you have revolutionised the way we care for our vinyl-I don’t think that’s hyperbole! And I want to say a sincere THANK YOU from the UK! I didn’t mind paying extra for such a quality product to be shipped from Canada but you’ve really done your European customers a total solid by securing a reliable, no-slimy distributor…and NDD too?!? Really, you spoil us! Once again-THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!

PS—Is there ANY chance AT ALL that we will ever see the beautiful crystal clear 12" inners make a comeback? I don’t put it lightly when I say they were a totally revolutionary product! Mike, you, and your products are GREAT. I’d love to buy you a pint one day :))


Just have to commend you on your ultra fast processing and quick shipping! I ordered 3 mil sleeves, single outer sleeves and box set sleeves. The fit is perfect and the quality is superb on all of these. I couldn’t be happier. Thank you again for your great service!!!!
