Maybe this picture will help me and others to understand the difference:

First one is the kind I use to store my vinyl. It's more soft (as you can see it collapses under its own weight) and "blurred", you can't see the wallpapers behind it.

Second one I had it somewhere and I probably removed it from an old picture disc. It's way more rigid and transparent, you can see the wallpapers behind it.

So is the first one PE and the second one PVC?

Okay what the fuck. So I have all my vinyl in those plastic (outer) sleeves, and there is no way to know which ones are PVC or PE? They all look the same to me, like plastic


Same here Confused

I have all my vinyl stored in the same plastic sleeves for over 15 years now and I don't see any damage, so I suppose they are not made of PVC.

Close to 30 years here. Hundreds of vinyl stored in "thin" and more "rigid" plastic sleeves, I can't see or hear any damage. No "clouding" effect whatsoever. But then again, I'm living in at some 100 kms away from the Polar Circle, so maybe it's because of the dry and cold climate.

Welp, any tips on unsticking a PVC sleeve from a glossy cover?
Sovereign's In the Abyss of My Soul insert cover came in a PVC sleeve, but it's probably fucked now, oh well.

Nevermind. Just thought of putting it in the freezer for a short while, seems to work, although it might get slightly damped but it will dry.

Had to replace a few pic disc sleeves, but now I think I am in the clear.
(pun not intended)

Does it really matter if the record itself doesn't come to contact with the sleeve? Since in some cases, like the Hypnopazuzu LP, the title, tracks, etc... are printed on the sleeve, making it a part of the whole.

Oh and good Midsummer for those who celebrate it!

Probably half of the cover print will remain stuck on the pvc if you'll try to get them out.

Same here. I imagine that has a lot to do with them (at least WWK) being xeroxes, though I could be wrong.

The only record I have that's touching a PVC sleeve is a Pedestrian Deposit 7" and it's definitely damaged it. There's a couple Drudkh records from Season of Mist with this kind of sleeve as well.

Only shit I have with these sleeves are Pic Discs. Which suck to begin with but for most of them I have actual vinyl copies of and was planning on framing the Pic LPs. Since pics are not even actual vinyl and a softer plastic I should get a move on because the PVC will surely eat those up.

That is just great. I used to have no protection since the lps would fit better in the rack. A few months ago i bought hard pvc outersleeves for all the lps,2lps and 7 s. Mad

They look much nicer than the softer stuff.

Possibly those skull type black and white A5 case albums were when the printed cover was put under the pvc while still wet. Not enough time for the Xerox ink or whatever, printer ink... to dry properly. (maybe)
