Record sleeve

LP in an antistatic Record Dust Sleeve

A record sleeve (not to be conflated with a record jacket/cover) is the outer covering of a vinyl record. Alternative terms are dust sleeve and album liner. A record sleeve can be made of paper, cardboard, rice paper, polypropylene etc..., can be acid-free or anti-static and also contain an inner liner (polylined). A record sleeve can be full or have a cut-out center hole for viewing the labels without having to remove the record from the sleeve. Besides the standard white, they can come in various colors and/or have print on them like label logos, lyrics, sleeve notes, artwork, etc.
