    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
    to stack.
    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,
    plus shipping.
    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.
    The Bags Unlimited boxes are the perfect size, but the price
    is astronomical. I wish someone would make a cheap knock-off with the
    same dimensions.

    Good luck.

    Uhaul small moving box is a perfect 12 5/8" x 12 5/8" x 16" it fits vinyl perfectly! A little too weak for carrying with the handles but for storasge it'd perfect. 99c each!!!!!

    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

    Hi, I need your help, 2017 now... I buy Sterilite storage boxes for my records, 1 week ago, the size of gasket boxes http://www.sterilite.com/SelectProduct.html?id=930&ProductCategory=305&section=1 are just perfect for 12 records, and they have other
    small perfect for singles, also other perfect for cds! they seems think cover all music formats. THE BIG QUESTION IS: PLASTIC IS SAFE FOR RECORDS??? this boxes are too dirty, I buy them on wallmart and believe is so hard remove some oily thin, I clean a
    lot and now are more clean but still get dirty and is not just dust! it seems the plastic is not too quality, is not cheap but not great.

    ANYONE HERE USE THOSE Sterilite boxes for records?????

    I add to 200gram of silica gel inside the boxes to prevent mold due the humidity.
