HDPE Inner Sleeve prototypes - Updated 10/3/19

SOLD OUT IN 2 MONTHS! Over 10,000 inner sleeves will have ship by Oct 4.

I have switched this product to perorder and I expect more stock by the end of October.

THANKS FOR THE GREAT SUPPORT!

Pre-orders was very high and all of them have shipped. I had to increase the price slightly due to material price increases for any new orders starting 9/13/19, but I have set volume discounts also.

I have to say they are amazing and I will slowly change out my whole collection to these inner sleeves.

The first production release will be for a 12 inch integrated flap. It will be made in Canada using the highest level of anti static additive and only virgin resin and will be made of thick 4 mil material.

Integrated flap

So I hate dust, because I hate cleaning my records, at least having to do it often. So when I looked at the sources of dust, there is a few primary sources....1) the record album jacket and 2) the inner sleeves and 3) exposure to the atmosphere. So how can I eliminate those sources? Obviously the dual pocket sleeve takes care of item 1 and using non-paper base inner sleeves would take care of item 2. Unfortunately most inner sleeves are open to the atmosphere (item 3) and I didn't want dust getting inside of the sleeve or part of the record to slide out when inside of the outer sleeve. When I looked at putting a flap as part of the inner sleeve, I wanted to avoid the potential of my fingers touching the record, which naturally lead me to making the flap permanently attached to the inner sleeve. So now I could simply slide the record in and out of the sleeve and easily overlap the flap to "encase" the record!
