LP records should be stored in sturdy boxes, crates or shelves. It is important to find a container that allows owners to store their records vertically in order to prevent warping.
Storing records horizontally over long periods of time can cause warping, so vinyl owners need to find a container that permits vertical storage of their LP records. The typical dimensions of LP records are 12 inches by 10 inches, so owners should keep that in mind when choosing a container. Specialized record storage shelves and crates are available in stores and online. However, wine crates and book boxes also make suitable containers for LP records.
