Tape Products - Due to weather conditions and lack of curing time, the tape may have lifted where it meets the seams (sides) of the sleeve. Please place the unused sleeve on a hard surface and apply pressure as you run your thumb up and down the length of the unused tape a few times. Remove the tape covering from open side, where you would insert the record album jacket.
Once you have sealed the flap, do NOT open the flap, as it needs time to cure.
This design is meant to protect your album cover while still giving you easy access to the vinyl record. The album pocket has a 1.25 inch resealable flap to give you a perfect archival seal. The record pocket is open to easily slide your record in.
I don't recommend store your record in the pocket without a good inner sleeve. The pictures are just to demonstrate the two pocket design.
Our CPP sleeves have excellent properties including clear transparency, scratch resistance, heat resistance, and moisture proof. CPP (cast polypropylene) film has a clear advantage over standard BOPP, polyethylene, Mylar or PVC sleeves.
What are the advantages of cast polypropylene? CPP has higher tear and impact resistance, better cold temperature performance and moisture transmission properties than standard sleeves. CPP won't turn cloudy over the normal life of the product, unlike other films. CPP is very hard to crease unlike BOPP and has some stretch forgiveness.
Cast film is usually used in applications that require superior optical properties such as gloss, transparency, surface smoothness, and good tear resistance.
Are they a little pricey compared to other low cost sleeves? Yes, but they are a true premium product to protect your expensive, irreplaceable record collection for years to come. No other product will give you this amazing clarity.
