How to store vinyl records in 2023

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to store your records correctly:

  1. Find a suitable location: Choose a cool, dry place to store your records. Avoid areas with high humidity or direct sunlight, which can cause warping or discoloration.

  2. Purchase protective sleeves: Invest in high-quality protective sleeves to protect your records from dust, scratches, and other damage. Acid-free sleeves are the best option to prevent discoloration over time.

  3. Store vertically: Store your records vertically, rather than stacking them on top of each other, to prevent warping.

  4. Keep records in their jackets: Keep your records in their original jackets or protective sleeves when not in use to protect them from dust, scratches, and other damage.

  5. Label and organize: Label your records and keep them organized by album, artist, or genre to make it easier to find what you're looking for.

  6. Handle with care: When handling your records, hold them by the edges and avoid touching the surface. Make sure to keep your hands clean and dry to prevent leaving fingerprints or other contaminants.

  7. Use a high-quality turntable: Make sure to use a high-quality turntable with a good stylus and proper anti-skating adjustment to prevent damage to your records during playback.
