That being the case, I'd go with Metal Edge.  They are about 1.03 per
sleeve for orders of 10 or more packages (of 25).  The 16" sleeves do
fit inside the corresponding record box.

These sleeves have a 1/2" heat-sealed margin. Therefore the sleeves
stand upright on shelves or in boxes and they are too big to fit into
standard archival boxes designed for 16" discs. Caveat emptor!
