The Toronto Star
writes on the Record Jacket Corp., a record-sleeve manufacturing business founded last spring by Torontonians Paul Miller and Alex
Durlak. The Bloor St. and Lansdowne Ave. shop (one of only two record- jacket companies in Canada), has sold 15,000 sleeves since its launch last April.
"Co-owners Paul Miller and Alex
Durlak, both 30, and sole employee Jason Cousineau, have tattoos and
facial hair. Giant Mac screens sit on the office desks. Close friends,
Miller and Durlak bonded over a mutual love of art, music and record
"In 2010, a chance to buy the machine
arose, and they decided to combine talents and clients to tap into a
vinyl production market that, in Canada, had all but disappeared."
"The new venture is one of only two
record jacket companies in the country. There are just five vinyl
manufacturing plants in North America. Record Jacket sells to music
distributors and record labels as well as to individual independent
bands. They've sold 15,000 sleeves since April."
