Re: [ARSCLIST] Transcription sleeves, was Re: [ARSCLIST] Boxes for album sets
Yup. Much better price, but those are oversized and with flaps. I want plain
paper sleeves, with a hole. If I have two thousand transcriptions that need
sleeves, you can be sure that I'm not going to spend weeks cleaning them, I
just want them covered. Even newspaper does a good job..I have a bunch that I
bought from Tom at Royal Garden Records in Cleveland years ago and we wrapped
them in paper at the time and they've held up perfectly.

many people would be interested if he could get someone to manufacture plain
paper sleeves, 16 1/2 inches square, with a hole, for a moderate price (this
didn't get to figures yet)? He carries the acid free variety that the Library
of Congress uses (or used..apparently he got the overrun) but those are over 2
bucks apiece and I just want something simple for the thousands of vinyl
transcriptions from radio station libraries etc that are lying open or in
tattered remnants. He'd probably need a minimum run of ten thousand, maybe
twenty thousand, but I bet we could get enough orders among us to cover that.
Anyway, no promises, but he said he'd ask and get back to me soon.

Okay, gang, they exist..I just spoke to the proprietor (who obviously
doesn't consider this his main business and who answers the phone by
saying the phone #). Business is WAY down, he says, the website hasn't
been touched in years (5, we already knew that), the 1-888 number is no
longer in effect (I found that out when I called it and got an auto
parts company), BUT they're alive and they take all credit cards and
promised to get a shipment out the door tomorrow. I may actually see it
on Friday if he uses something other than UPS Ground.
And he had 3/4" and 1/2" boxes in stock..I ordered ten of each.
Call 614 267 8468.

Have you done business with these guys before? These prices seem very
reasonable, so reasonable that I'd like to make sure they are legit
before ordering. The website seems non-functional except this catalog
PDF, but that could just mean they're an old-school mom and pop shop.
Their sleeve and package prices seem a little bit lower than the
place in Rochester.

I've finally found a source for boxes for album sets! Not the
shipping boxes, but replacements for deteriorated box sets or for
orphaned discs that never had a box of their own, library discards
etc. CABCO has 'em. See page 4.
They also sell steel needles!
