The Beat Goes On: Vinyl Record Sleeves
You start with a few records and, before you know it, you're spending every Saturday thumbing through the bins and buying more records! Soon, your stack of records grow and you have a sizeable collection on your hands. Your vinyl LPs can be enjoyed for generations with the right protection. We carry inner and outer sleeves to keep every inch of your records protected. Inner and Outer Sleeves Vinyl records invite a personal listening experience. Not only can you hear a record, but you can see it and hold it in your hands. Our inner and outer sleeves keep your records looking and sounding their best. Album Sleeves for Outer Covers and Jackets Worn records are a sign of a true music lover. Ideally, you want to preserve your album covers from the start. That said, it's never too late to protect your album covers! Your vinyl LP collection will look as good as new when displayed in our crystal clear album sleeves. These sleeves fit over the album covers and create another layer of protection if you also use inner sleeves. Also called Blake Sleeves, the use of these sleeves will protect your outer jackets and limit dust from sticking to the vinyl. We carry sizes to fit 7-inch albums to double LP gatefold albums with thicker jackets - available in 2 mil, 3 mil, and 4 mil.
Protect Your Superheroes: Comic Book Sleeves
Even superheroes need protection. Luckily, you don't need superhuman powers to preserve your comic books! We carry acid-free comic book bags and backing boards designed for the sole purpose of protecting your collection. As a comic book enthusiast or an avid collector, you probably know that comic books can easily degrade over time without the right protection. Prevent yellowing, brittleness, bumped corners, tears, and rips so you can enjoy your comics for years to come. Our bags are made of durable polypropylene and come in two different styles. Bags are offered with or without adhesive. The non-adhesive style works well if you prefer to tape your bags closed or simply want them open-ended. The other bag has a protective closure, which means the adhesive strip is on the body of the bag, and not the flap! The advantage of this bag is that you can insert and remove comics without coming into contact with any sticky glue. Preserving your comics is not complete without acid-free backing boards. Backing boards help comic books maintain their original flatness and prevent crimping or wrinkling of pages. Our backing boards come in white for a clean, professional look and are acid-free. Bags and backing boards come in two sizes to fit Modern Era comics or older Golden/Silver Era comics.

New Product: Matte Black Inner Frosted Sleeves
When you see a record sitting on a shelf, the inner sleeve is invisible to the eye. This is the sleeve that protects the record itself. Our frosted inner sleeves offer superior protection and a polished presentation. The frosted material is beautifully textured and comes in 2 mil (matte black) or 3.5 mil (frosted) options. The thicker 3.5 mil sleeves provide superior protection and hold their shape as you slide in your records. These sleeves feel sturdy yet are soft enough to hug your records. The smooth fit prevents dust and residue from attaching to your vinyl and won't wrinkle or bunch up with use.
- Matte black finish offers high quality appearance
- Die-cut window shows album details
- Fits 12" single albums
