How to Use the HumminGuru VinylShield set? Here is a recommended way!
Start by selecting a vinyl record from your collection that you wish to document and gather the album cover, vinyl disc, and the HumminGuru Album Jacket!
Begin by writing down the record’s key information including the artist name, album title, release year, genre, and any addition notes you’d like to include. Additionally, document the condition of the record and the album cover using the provided standardized scale.
At the bottom of the album jacket, you will find a special space reserved for capturing your memories, emotions, and unique stories behind the record. You can write about how you discovered the record or any anecdotes that make it special to you. Wether it is a rare find, the first record received from a loved one, records sought from a second-hand market, or discovered during meaningful moments in life. Imagine sharing the album jacket with loved ones, allowing them to connect with the music and understand the significance it holds in your life. It becomes a tangible piece of your personal history that can be treasured for years to come.
We recommend giving your record a thorough cleaning using the HumminGuru Ultrasonic Vinyl Record Cleaner or any other preferred cleaning method of your choice before placing it into a new inner record sleeve or playing it on your turntable.
Then, record the cleaning date on the album jacket's cleaning log to track the care given to the record. It offers space for up to 90 cleaning sessions, showcasing your dedication and devotion to maintaining the record's quality.
Each time you play the record, record the date of record playing on the back of the album jacket, with space for up to 300 entries. This visual record showcases the number of times the record has been played since you acquired it.
After record cleaning or playing, insert the record into the round-bottom HumminGuru Anti-Static Inner Sleeve. These acid-free sleeves are crafted from high-quality HDPE material with a thickness of 1.5 MIL/0.04mm for ultimate protection for the record. (Record Size Tolerance： ±5mm)*
Then, insert the inner sleeve into the HumminGuru Album Jacket.
Finally, HumminGuru suggests using sealed sleeves to preserve the album cover for the long term. Place the HumminGuru Album Jacket and sealed album cover together, then slide them into the HumminGuru 12" Protective Outer Record Sleeves. These crystal-clear sleeves, made from heavy-duty 3.5 MIL polypropylene, provide excellent protection against dust, scratches, and blemishes while allowing clear visibility of the artwork and labels on your favorite albums.
Taking care of your vinyl records and creating a personal connection with your music can be a rewarding and enjoyable experience. Embrace the power of documentation, reminisce over the playback memory, and safeguard the longevity of your vinyl collection with the HumminGuru VinylShield.
