Prototype of new gatefold outer sleeve - Updated 030921

UPDATE-the pre-production samples are looking pretty good. I'm making a few teaks, but I hope to have these produced shortly. The interest has been very high, so I might limited the amount anyone can buy for the first release.

Thanks

Mike

I'm getting close to going into production on the new gatefold outer sleeve with tuckable flaps for traditional storage. Meaning you would still store the record inside of the album jacket.

This would be a single sleeve (no tape!) with a relief in the center of the inside to allow for proper closure of the gatefold. manufactured in Canada with high clarity 4 mil cast polypropylene made in the USA. The flaps are 2" approx to seal away your records and protect the edges of the album from hits and nicks.

Here some pics to peak your interest. Please excuse the quality of the photos.

Super idea! I am sure it’s gonna be a “winner” ! Do you have a release date?

Gatefold sleeves are so hard to find in Canada. Can’t wait until these are available so I don’t have to pay US Dollars and Fed-Ex cross border charges!!!!

Looks like you are on the right track, I am curious to see for myself how it fits gatefolds old and new.

Can’t wait for these. With so many LPs being released (or rereleased) as gatefolds – this is the ultimate solution.
