Mailers for 12" & 7"

Posted

I shall shortly be looking to buy some record mailers for 12"/PLs and 7", cheap but decent quality ones. Has anyone got any recommendations?

Does it really peeve anyone when they receive a record in a mailer that's in decent nick, but on it's "2nd use"?

it doesnt peeve me at all

I have bought dozens of records that have arrived in recycled mailers and I think it should be more widely adopted rather than "single use" only

you will have noticed the trend for recycling with water bottles and other items like is being publicised for Glastonbury this year

I believe that new ones should only be used if no alternative exists and I commend those that recycle their mailers

I've got no issues in receiving a record in a second hand mailer, but do not expect to pay for the cost of the used mailer.

Lucky escape, I bet Andy Rix wishes the Jiffy bag had never been invented. I once recieved a 7" in great big cornflakes box  turned in side out & folded over
