Our Packaging

For such a delicate cargo, only the best and most sturdy packaging will do, which is why we've scoured the country searching for the perfect selection of packaging materials that can do just that. Every. Single. Time.

More than that though, we accept the impact that businesses can have on the world and the change they can help drive by choosing responsibly. Those two criteria were in mind when picking out the right range of packaging to safely, and responsibly, bring you the music you love. 

That's why we love each and every element of packaging that we use to deliver your items, and we hope you do too...

 

 

Supremely strong mailers

The days of flimsy mailers and cracked records are over.
 

We know how important it is for your records to reach you in one piece, in exactly the same condition as when they left us. That's why we've chosen these brand new mailers, supplied by our friends over at Lil Packaging. Providing unrivalled strength and protection, these really are the best around. 
 

Their easy-open tear strips make unwrapping simple, so there's no need to risk damaging your record as you fight your way into the envelope with scissors. On top of that, records fit snugly, minimising the danger of scuffed corners, and the unparalleled strength ensures that the days of opening up a record cracked in the post are over.


The best bit? They're guaranteed to be 100% recyclable and forest friendly. 

Good for the environment. Great for you.

Protective book wrap mailers

   

The newest addition to our line up are these fantastic book wrap mailers. 

Variable depth allows them to snugly fit around however many records you order, which means the same tight fit regardless of quantity. A tight fit means no wiggle room, not just protecting the corners of the sleeves but also preventing bending.

The protection doesn't stop there. 

The design of the book wrap means that the records themselves are housed in an interior shell of the packaging, so if there's any carelessness in transit the outer shell will take the impact while your records will be safe and sound inside.

card box & biodegradable loose fill

Holding up to 30 records, these boxes are not only strong but also 100% recyclable while the FSC certification is evidence of responsible sourcing of the cardboard used. 

To protect records from movement in transit, we use loose fill. These form a barrier between the records and all sides of the box, preventing folded corners and more serious shocks while in transit. 

However, loose fill is traditionally made from polystyrene, so protecting valuables comes at the cost of a very slowly biodegrading product that litters shorelines and enters the food chain of birds and marine life across the world. 

That's why we've chosen eco-loose fill.  Made from starch and 100% biodegradable, EcoFlo is independently proven to offer better all round protection than polystyrene loosefill. Plus, if it makes its way into water systems it breaks down completely, helping to rid the world of unsightly, damaging plastic pollution.

bubble wrap envelopes

     

The thought doesn't just stop at records.

Spindles are very delicate items too, which is why we use bubble-lined envelopes for extra protection. As an environmental bonus, they're also 100% recyclable.

Inside that, each pack comes within a large polythene sleeve - a by-product of producing the polythene sleeves we use to protect every single one of our records. Using them avoids hundreds of unrecyclable plastic sleeves entering the waste system every year.
