I'm looking to grab some inner and outer sleeves to replace those in my current records, just curious what you guys would recommend? I did a search and couldn't find anything.
For any records you put a large value on or really appreciate, I would recommend Mobile Fidelity Inner Sleeves. They are recommended by the Library of Congress, as well as any vinyl lover.
For all others, just a regular paper sleeve is fine, as long as the record has minimal dust when you put it in the sleeve, it will be protected.
For all outer sleeves I recommend just regular bags.
Try to buy in bulk, the savings are great!
Awesome! I've seen slightly textured (i.e. not shiny and clear, more dull) poly sleeves and a few used records I've bought come with them. Those seem to have serviced me best. How do the MoFi ones compare? I definitely will look into them, but right now $1 per sleeve could be a bit outside of my budget. How do they hold up when slid into their cases? Some of the newer productions have some crazy tight fits, wouldn't want to ruin them.
Poly inner sleeves are okay, but you are better off going with mobile fidelity for any plastic inner sleeves, but otherwise use the paper sleeves, they work perfect. I use them for nearly all of my records. But if you insist on the Poly inners, the MoFi sleeves are way better. They are the best you can get. They seal and are anti-static.They will fit in all your records i wouldnt worry about it.
