PACKAGING INSTRUCTIONS:

First, if the album is open, remove the vinyl record from the sleeve and place the record sleeve in a clear plastic protective sleeve made for vinyl records. Then place the vinyl record into a generic inner sleeve and place it behind the record sleeve. In case there are printed inner sleeves, lyric sheets, posters, or any other items, they may be stored inside the record sleeve for safekeeping. 

If the record is sealed, please place the sealed record into a clear protective sleeve to protect the shrink wrap. 

Place the vinyl record between two 12″x 12″ cardboard stiffeners then place in a record shipping carton. Seal the record shipping carton with packing tape and then place in a larger box with bubble wrap or other packaging such as foam “peanuts” or shipping paper to fill the empty space. Also include a printed copy of your order confirmation for our reference. 

If you would prefer to order a shipping carton kit from VMG, you may do so for $15 during the submission process. In most situations, our shipping cartons can hold up to five records each. For shipping recommendations for larger orders, please contact us at info@vmgvinyl.com.
