Vinyl Books 12×12″

Vinyl Books 12×12″

Vinyl Books are approximately 12×12″. A Vinyl Book can hold records, cds, or any combinations of mixed media.
Hardcover books are made with a rigid, chipboard core and wrapped with a full color printed paper wrap, or special material like linen or leather. The process is called book binding. The inside also has a wrap applied, and this can be full color or a solid material like black matte or kraft paper. The books are laminated with either matte or gloss lamination. Media can be held in a variety of ways (trays, hubs, sleeves). If you want to hold other types of media in a collection, foam trays are super convenient because they can be custom cut to hold different types of media. Inner pages start at 8pp and can go up to 100pp or so, in 4pp increments.

 

Vinyl Books are approximately 12×12″, the same as traditional record albums. A vinyl book can hold records, discs, posters, and many other items.
Hanging or Swinging Sleeves can be used to hold vinyl or cds, or foam trays can be used.
