The on-line glossaries of terms used in record collecting don't
answer two of my questions.
J-Card: the heavy weight paper liner notes for a tape cassette. 1)
Other than the fact that it looks like a "J" when viewed endwise, does the
"J" stand for anything?
Sleeve: the heavy weight paper envelope sealed on three sides used to
protect 78, LP and 45 recordings.
Picture Sleeve: a sleeve envelope with printing or photographs on one
or both sides.
I have a number of 45's and 7" EP's that come in more than just a
picture sleeve. A blank sleeve envelope with the 45 is tucked into a
folded-in-half 14-1/4" x 7-1/8" piece of heavy weight paper with printing
or photographs. The three (45, sleeve and ??) are then inserted in a
plastic transparent sleeve and sold that way. 2) Is there a special term
for this folded piece of paper to differentiate it from the picture sleeve
For example, you can see what I am referring to at,
What is the name for this?
