It is obviously of great importance that vinyl records are packaged correctly or you’ll face the consequence of an angry customer as their rare LP of Pink Floyd arrives in pieces (those who are not a fan may say that this would be for the best of course).
However, a little bit of time on choosing the best packaging can save alot of trouble and of course, happy customers which means repeat business.
You can stick all the fragile labels you like on a box, but lets face it, if its big enough to throw around the postal sorting office then you can bet thats exactly what will happen. The only difference a fragile label may make is it may just be thrown underarm.
So Makkipak has produced a range of packaging which we believe will help ensure your vinyl record survives the rigors of the British postal system.
Our vinyl LP bubble bags will certainly provide excellent protection and if it’s a valuable LP, your customer will certainly appreciate the additional care taken. You can then sandwich this between two of our corrugated stiffeners (notice the little hole, makes it look like a record sleeve..nice touch don’t you think ? With the rounded edges it provides better presentation than just a square bit of cardboard). You could just tape this up and send but we recommend sending this in our vinyl record wrap for additional protection.
There are also boxes for larger volumes of vinyl LPs, the bubble bags and stiffeners can of course be used with these to provide additional protection.
If you need any further information or samples of any of these products please do not hesitate to contact a member of our sales team on 01604 812755, they will be happy to help.
