You might have telephoned Cabco by now concerning your question (forwarded)
about the dimensions and capacity of their LP boxes, but having bought them I
can testify that the 1/2" boxes will not hold four LPs in paper sleeves. The
boxes are as wide as those formerly used by record companies for two LPs and a
booklet of some sort (e.g. the Toscanini LM-6020 we recently corresponded
about). Four records would require a 3/4" box.
Start the year off right. Easy ways to stay in
Cabco has been around since at least the sixties..I remember getting some
samples from them way back when. And they list a toll-free number and e-mail
address if you scroll down.
Only question I have, which I'll ask when I phone them (presumably they're
taking a holiday today), is whether their measurements of 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch
are inside or outside. If a 1/2 inch box will hold four LPs in paper sleeves,
that's what I need. The 3/4 inch boxes seem to list for the same price but I
don't like empty space. (Like those ridiculous boxes London sometimes used in
the fifties for ONE LP.)
