Editor's Notes

April 03, 2019:

When it comes to record inner sleeves, you generally have two options: polyethylene or paper, each with their own pros and cons. Polyethylene are see-through, which means they allow you to view the label without needing to have a hole in the middle that could allow dust through. They are also softer and smoother, so there is less chance of scratching the surface of an LP. Paper sleeves are stiffer, so they offer better protection against other objects, and many find them easier to slide in and out of a jacket. Whichever type you prefer, we've found the best of both styles for you to choose from. Traditionalist who prefer paper should look at Square Deal Recordings & Supplies Archival Quality #12IW and Big Fudge Premium. If you want to go the plastic route, check out Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs MoFi, Sleeve City Diskeeper 2.0, TME Round Bottom, Aitaton Combo Pack, and Taguchi LP. If you just can't decide which style you prefer, you might want to consider Collector Protector 3 Ply, Sleeve City Diskeeper Double Audiophile, and BCW Paper & Plastic Polylined, which give you the best of both worlds. Of course, this last type also comes with its own drawbacks, namely a thickness that can cause jacket bunching and makes them slightly more difficult to slide in and out of album covers.
