Boxes for Vinyl Record Sets / Mixed Media

Vinyl Box Sets are a great way to present record collections. The vinyl records inside can be packaged in inner sleeves (solid, die cut, printed or unprinted, thin paper stock or vellum) or in printed LP covers, both of which we can help with. We make the boxes in any size you need but most are 12×12″ variations. If you want to add swag inside, it might be a bit deeper. Top it off with an OBI strip. Consider adding a video panel in the lid!

2 Piece or 1 Piece (Hinged) Boxes

We make a variety of box types but we can generally classify them as either 1 piece (hinged) or 2 piece sets. Hinged boxes can open like a pizza box, or have some intricate folding. We especially love panels with magnets that snap into place (see Retail Product Boxes). 2 Piece box sets have a distinct top & bottom lid and can be wide like a clothing gift box or tall like a hat box. No problem with special shapes – they need not be square.

Custom Vinyl Albums

Vinyl LPs can be made in a variety of ways. We can make a bifold 4pp LP with a swinging sleeve inside, or glue a sleeve to an end panel. Foam panels can also be used to hold media. Should you want a gatefold LP (6pp or 8pp), or custom folding LP, we can make that as well.  2pp LPs are another option. For additional customizing, you may want consider a linen wrap or textured fabric paper.

Swinging Sleeves

Swinging sleeves, also called hanging sleeves, are a fun way to hold a record. We can make them with a fiberboard stock if you are looking for a vintage manilla folder look. Die cut center holes are popular, along with top notch cut outs.  Vinyl records can be heavy, so if you have a lot of records in your set, we’ll recommend that we use riveted construction to help support the weight.  Swinging sleeves can also be used to hold discs or booklets.

Side Loading Slipcase

Side loading boxes are some of our top requests. To make a chipboard box (i.e, rigid), the core material needs to be a sturdy chipboard which is wrapped with printed paper and laminated, or with a special material like linen fabric. In order for us to tool the chipboard, the box has to be a certain width (about 2cm) so you’ll need a few records inside depending on how they are individually packaged (inner sleeves vs LP jackets). An alternative is an artcard slipcase which can be made in any width.

Linen / Fabric Paper Wrap

Linen fabric adds a beautifully classic look to any title. We special order the fabric and try to get it as close to the color you want. Wide weave linens are best suited for simple art – usually 1C black or foil stamped. If your art is full color or complex, we have a great alternative called fabric paper. This has a nice texture to it and stands up well to 4C printing. Leather is another type of material we use.

Hardcover Vinyl Books

Hardcover Vinyl Books are made with a chipboard core so that they are sturdy and rigid. We can print the outer wrap or wrap them in material. The books usually have inner pages but do have to. Inner pages are made in 4pp increments. Sleeves are a popular way to hold records (or cds) inside the book.

Ways to Hold the Media - Foam & Sleeves

Your sleeve options include gluing a pocket sleeve to the inside panel (front and/or back) and hanging or swinging sleeves. The sleeves can be a solid material (black is popular) or printed, with or without die cut holes and notches. Black EVA foam can also be applied to an end panel. We can also wrap the foam with print. Die cut wells hold any product you’d like sugly, including discs, books, usb, cards, or cassettes.

Vinyl Record LPs - Side Loading

Traditional record albums are side loading LPs, either 2pp or 4pp bifold. We can make these in a variety of materials from a thick artcard to a rigid chipboard depending on the look and feel you are going for. We recommend an inner sleeve for scratch protection.

Chipboard Core

A chipboard core is what lends this product it’s rigidity. Chipboard is a rather blase color of grayish-muck (ever deconstruct a text book?). We make it look presentable by laminating a 4C printed wrap onto it. We’ve also used fabric and leather as you’ll see in some of our other titles.

Top Loading Vinyl LPs

The great thing about top loading LPs, is that the records doesn’t easily fall out. We can make these in 4pp bifold or 2pp single record covers.

Inner Sleeves, Booklets & Posters, OBI Strips

We can provide any printed paper items you need such as posters, booklets, inserts, download cards, and stickers. Inner sleeves are available in a variety of paper stocks including vellum. OBI strips are super popular and a great add-on to your vinyl packaging. We can make them in any size you’d like. Vinyl record bags are another good thought to protect your special release.
