Paper Sleeves not fitting Cardboard covers

Post by Vipp » Fri Sep 11, 2015 6:03 pm

Lately ive been buying records where I find that paper sleeves dont fit the cardboard cover once you place both of them in the same direction (open side) Why the hell dont they fix this? Its super annoying having to take the paper cover out completely before been able to take out the record. Anyone else having this problem?

Some labels seem to ignore this aspect completely.
Also a bugger : a cardboard cover that is slightly smaller than the standard, because then you can't fit any other paper sleeve in it.

For older records I bought new paper sleeves with poly insides and re-used the generic cardboard sleeves.
For new ones, sometimes you might get lucky (if the cardboard is big enough) and you will be able to replace the paper sleeves with new ones.

Generally not really an issue, just something unpleasant, a first world problem, ish :-D
