    In your youth records were not generally pressed on 180/200g vinyl, and the sleeves were not generally printed on thick card, with both things being common practise now.
    That's why the protective outer sleeves have become bigger.

    Once we've made sense of our world, we wanna go fuck up everybody else's because his or her truth doesn't match mine. But this is the problem. Truth is individual calculation. Which means because we all have different perspectives, there isn't one singular truth, is there?

    thicker the better. the thin ones are not good and deform when touched

    Thanks, Grant. Also, these ones...

    while more expensive are a smaller size (320x315mm rather than 330x325mm) than the standard variety so might be of interest to Andrew (AGK)

    Are the VinylGuru gatefolds from Amazon as good as the reviews claim?40 pounds for a pack of 20 is not cheap,but would be worth it,if they are the best.

    dont use gatefold sleeves as i find them more trouble than they are worth. take up a lot of room too, plus as you say, expensive. just as good in a single sleeve imo
