They're rather expensive, but I do like the Bags Unlimited
corrugated plastic or cardboard record storage boxes:
If that's too expensive, Uline.com has 12.5 inch cardboard boxes.
There are cardboard box manufacturers all over the US.
(I don't know where you're from, but I'm sure there are
many cardboard box suppliers wherever you are on this planet.)
The box has to be at least 12.5 by 12.5 inches, or better yet,
12.75 by 12.75 inches.
In my experience, 13 inch cubes are a bit too "roomy" and hard
12.5 is just right, unless you have any lp jackets that are oversized.
(LOTS of older record jackets are larger than 12.5 square)
You should be able to buy them in 25 count bundles for about $25 tops,
Quantity orders from a cardboard box wholesaler would be significantly
less than that.
If there's a record label near you, talk to them and find out where
they or their pressing plant is getting boxes from.
I personally don't like "cube" boxes...they're too heavy when full.

is astronomical. I wish someone would make a cheap knock-off with the

The plastic and cardboard corrugated boxes from
Bags Unlimited and other vendors are nice but over the past couple of years, Rubbermate, Sterilite and other container and storage manufacturers have broadened their product lines. I have found containers that work wonderfully for
both LPs and 45s... with ample space for dividers and lids that fit tight to keep out dust. They also stack better and will definitely stay in better shape
longer. As far as price, a 24x17x13 latch box from Sterilite is around $10, where as Bags Unlimited's cardboard corrugated box which measures 13x13x11 are
$8... and that's not including shipping, unless you live in the eastern
I found the container mentioned above at Target but
have seen them and similar ones elsewhere like Wal-Mart, etc.
Vinyl... as in the stuff records are made of... not floor
