12" Gatefold Outer Sleeve
Vinyl Record Outer Sleeves - Crystal Clear CPP-10 Sleeves to a pack - WITH TUCKABLE FLAPS
This product is for traditional storage of gatefold albums that allow you to open the gatefold like a book. Opened at both ends to allow you to store the records in the gatefold pockets. Tuck in the flaps for added security and to minimize the album sliding in the sleeve. Only need one end opened? Simply tape the other end shut, if you wish. There is a center relief cut into the sleeve to allow unobstructed closure.
Our CPP sleeves have excellent properties including clear transparency, scratch resistance, heat resistance, and moisture-proof. CPP (cast polypropylene) film has a clear advantage over standard BOPP, polyethylene, Mylar or PVC sleeves.
What are the advantages of cast polypropylene? CPP has higher tear and impact resistance, better cold-temperature performance, and moisture transmission properties than standard sleeves. CPP won't turn cloudy over the normal life of the product, unlike other films. CPP is very hard to crease unlike BOPP and has some stretch forgiveness.
Cast film is usually used in applications that require superior optical properties such as gloss, transparency, surface smoothness, and good tear resistance.
This is a true premium product to protect your expensive, irreplaceable record collection for years to come. No other product will give you this amazing clarity.

This item will ship folded at the center, inwards. Otherwise, it would be too large of a shipping box. This is the naturally closed position for a sleeved album.
Designed to hold most standard gatefold albums. Some smaller Analog Productions, Tone Poets and the like may fit, if they are no larger than 320 mm x 320 mm and not very thick. Do NOT force in a large album, as the exposed edge of the cardboard may cut the seam of the sleeve!
