Those jackets and vinyl were all produced at GZ in the Czech Republic (the plant Pirates Press uses.) They usually produce pretty flimsy jackets.

Thats on Fat for ordering a flimsier cardstock, we use GZ/Pirates Press for all our releases (Pure Noise) and never have issues w/ flimsiness but we order 3mm jackets on everything.

Very true. I should have clarified that they don't order the upgraded jackets.

Plus higher cost to get them shipped stateside, more bulk volume (it does add up), and higher shipping costs for end user. In the end it's not just a $1 difference.

 

That said, I noticed it first on my MFATGG record as well and the jacket is absolutely abysmal. Might be the worst one I won.

Just got in the NUFAN Covers record. Does anyone else feel that Fat has been using a shitty, flimsy stock for their sleeves as of late? I think the first one I really noticed it with was the MFATGG... they not only feel flimsy AF to the touch, but also come in beat to shit even when it doesn't appear the mailman has Ace Ventura'd my package.

 

I hate to talk shit on Fat, but I just have always  considered them to be one of the better labels that puts actual effort and care into their product. The past few releases (I'm looking at you, F2F "box" set) have really been lackluster at best.

Noticed this also. Thought it had gotten wet in the mail or something. Glad it wasn't just me.
