I just spoke to Mr. Cabco again, this time about transcription sleeves. How
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.
