What media can it hold?

A Vinyl Book can hold records, cds, or any combination of mixed media. Media can be held in a variety of ways (trays, hubs, sleeves). If you want to hold other types of media in a collection, such as cassettes or download cards, foam trays are super convenient because they can be custom cut to hold different types of media.

What materials are used to make the vinyl books?

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.

Does it have inner pages?

Yes! Inner pages start at 8pp and can go up to 100pp or so, in 4pp increments. These are like coffee table books, only they hold a record or cd.
