I’m getting a lot of new records in the next few weeks and desire to take care of them. They will be cleaned with a Degritter when I receive them, but I was wondering about which type of vinyl sleeve to place them in. I know paper sleeves may cause some problems, so which vinyl sleeves do you recommend?

Accoustic Sounds has many different brands, so it makes selecting the best from all the rest a little difficult. However, if there is a better location in the U.S. to order them please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

I use Sleeve City polylined sleeves. These are better than mofi sleeves in that they don't crinkle nearly as easily. I also like to write the cleaning date on the outer paper, just so I know. Sleeves that don't use paper are more difficult to inscribe notes to myself. So polylined paper is what I prefer.

If I didn't care about inscribing cleaning notes to myself on the sleeve, then I'd probably exclusively use marecordings.com inner sleeves. These are the nicest overall that I've encountered.

The Photographic Activity Test (PAT) is a worldwide standard (ISO Standard 18916) for archival quality in photographic enclosures. Developed by IPI ( Image Permanence Institute), this test predicts possible interactions between photographic images and the enclosures in which they are stored.

They look good. Unfortunately we are often limited in the Uk due to the very high postage and customs and vat charges on arrival

Just to confirm, are you using the polylined paper or the diskkeeper?

I've used both. The sleeve I've settled on is the polylined paper. The diskeeper in the thickest version resists crinkling very well. It's very high quality. But it's very thick (tight in some outer sleeves), and also not convenient for my note taking.

Thanks. I would like to try something stiffer than the MoFi sleeves since sometimes it is hard to get them in the jacket if it is a tight squeeze.
