Toronto's Record Jacket Corp. profits from resurgence of vinyl records

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 collecting."

"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."
