    ALL THINGS VINYL! We sell Amazon's #1 selling record sleeve - OUR OWN CUSTOM PRODUCT, #12SE03. We have over 13,000 vinyl titles on our website as well as a full line of record supplies! We are a member of the Better Business Bureau with their highest rating. Established 1971!
  1. @Buffbloom - heh - yeah, the visuals of our website aren't the most appealing. We have chosen not to dump the ton of money to convert it to something more modern yet because we are trying to keep costs of the supplies down. Thanks for bearing with us. A new website is on our list of future goals. We also sell on eBay and Amazon if that's more appealing. Same username. @minor incident - for a 6# box of 25 white record jackets is around $12 via UPS (ouch!). We tried sending them media mail before ($5) but the post office told us that empty jackets do NOT count as media and to cut it out. so we did. For the white jackets without a hole - on our website for 25 they are $15 + ~$13 shipping = $28. They might be slightly more on our eBay account because eBay and paypal take around 20% - which is sometimes our entire margin! We do have the same thing on Amazon for $24.91 *delivered* because when we send to FBA prime we can use Amazon's UPS# and they get KILLER rates. Supplies we send to FBA to fulfill with their prime service are the only instance where you might see an end price slightly cheaper than our website since we saved $$ on freight and passed it on. Other than that, supplies are cheaper on our website since we don't lose the 20% in fees. Sorry that was so long, just trying to give y'all the bigger picture. Here is a link to the 25 pack on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/25-12-Record-Jackets-Without/dp/B00AO826QO/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1373325713&sr=8-11&keywords=white+record+jackets @kevinxabney - you were seeing the flat rate shipping because you didn't put in your postal code to see actual shipping rates. I just added 13 comics to 'my cart" and picked a "middle of the country" zip code (66601) and it showed shipping as $9.60 - which is still too high in my opinion. Unfortunately our website does not yet recognize media mail as a shipping option. Anything you can fit in a priority mail flat rate envelope for $5.25 - that's what we'll charge you. Just put "ship in priority flat rate for $5.25" and your total will be adjusted before your card is charged. Or "ship via media mail and refund the difference" in the notes. Again, not ideal and we'd like this fixed but for the meantime this is how we work around it. If you put nothing in the notes you would receive a coupon code for your next order for any freight overages over $2-3. (Amazon doesn't combine shipping on comics and charges $3.99 per comic! ouch! or I would suggest checking us out on Amazon). Side note: We ship all our comics in a bag between two stiff boards bigger than the comics to prevent corner dings and such. @Crack Rock Steady - check out the above paragraph to Kevin - same applies. "Ship media mail and refund overcharge" in the notes and we will refund you instead of a coupon code. @skidroje - you were seeing flat rate shipping because you didn't have your zip code entered (it's a couple lines below where you saw $33). I just tried it and to the "middle of the country zip code" it's $20 for this 15# package. When I ran it on the program it looks like we can get it out for $18 so if you mention that in the notes we will refund you the $2 overcharge the website states. Thanks for all your comments guys - we can't grow as a company if we don't know the issues people are concerned with. I'm going to be having all our website orders route past my desk to double check freight charges quoted vs. charged again to make sure there's nothing I can do to help the costs look more accurate on the website. In the meantime if you'd like a freight quote on something that seems high please don't hesitate to contact us! Thanks again for your input! We appreciate it! --Kjerstin & Danica SquareDealOnline

  10. We're tickled to see us mentioned on here... so we'd like to offer you guys a 10% off merchandise discount on your next order on our website. www.SquareDealOnline.com - just put "VINYLCOLLECTIVE10" in the notes section during checkout and we will manually deduct it before charging your card.

Quick tip: When we sell on Amazon and eBay we have to add $$ to the price to cover the 20% they take in fees - so most supplies are significantly cheaper on our website! --Kjerstin & Danica SquareDealOnline
  11. Hey guys! That's really disheartening to hear. Did you contact us? Sometimes when the sleeves are produced a small fraction get made a little too small. The vast majority is absolutely fine so you must have gotten an odd batch. We haven't had some of the same record store customers for decades by sending out defective stuff, we promise. If you have not contacted us yet to resolve this issue - please do so! We will make it right! We will either call tag the item or get photos and then send out a replacement or refund at no additional charge. We do quality control our incoming lots, but every once in a while it's just a box or a box 1/2 that came in a little weird and got missed. We definitely apologize for the inconvenience! Please give us a chance to fix this for you. --Kjerstin & Danica SquareDealOnline (805) 543-3636
  12. I assure you we are legit business - been around since 1971! We have been hoarders of vinyl records and distributed titles in the early 80s so we have a TON of sealed records! Our customer service is great and easily accessible. Our phone # is (805) 543-3636 and direct email: [email protected] We are a member of the Better Business Bureau with their highest rating! We distribute to indie record stores all over the country and have for decades - and we have our own retail store here in San Luis Obispo, CA called Cheap Thrills Records (established 1972). We are the custom manufacturer of Amazon's #1 record sleeve - our #12SE03. If anybody has questions or needs help with the website please don't hesitate to contact us! In the last several years we have upped our shipping times too - 99% of orders ship out within one business day. LONG LIVE VINYL! --Kjerstin / SquareDealOnline www.facebook/SquareDealOnline Instagram: #SquareDealOnline <---sweet vinyl pics to come!
