Vinyl in Outer Sleeves (No Spine)

We produce outer sleeves to suit every need. Where some will require a capacity pocket to fit a heavy weight record and inserts; others prefer the slim and simple approach.

Outer sleeves without spines are often better suited to 7" singles, 10" EPs, or for vinyl boxsets that feature a stack of multiple records. Can't see what you're looking for? Call us!

This popular packaging was created with durability in mind, featuring a 5mm spine, and 300gsm card stock. Upgrade to 350gsm for an even more deluxe feel and weight.

Vinyl in Casewrapped Outer Sleeves

Referred to by our friends in the US as tip-on style jackets, this ultra professional vinyl packaging option is similar in construction to a bound book, and is as gourmet as it gets.

While it's most common to wrap the thick inner cardboard corpus in printed paper, a range of materials such as leather or fabric are also available. For the ultimate in deluxe vinyl packaging, emboss or hot-foil your design into the wrap.
