About Art of Records
GREAT RECORDS + MODERN DESIGN + CALIFORNIA CRAFTSMANSHIP
As a lifelong vinyl lover I've never liked the "record frames". They're designed for photos and prints, not records. Being disappointed in the display options out there is why I set out to design a case to display a few of my favorite records. I wanted the case to display a record like art in a museum, while making it easy to access the record on display. I wanted to make something of quality. That simple idea evolved over several prototypes into CLRCASE.
I truly love what we make, and believe our cases are the first display cases in the world designed from the ground up for vinyl records. Everything else out there is an adaptation of a frame, or a shelf, or just some cheap 3d printed gimmicky thing. Our cases are made to stand the test of time, both in their quality and design aesthetic.
They're made for the love of vinyl records.

MADE IN CALIFORNIA / SWEATSHOP FREE
Every one of our cases is designed, manufactured, and hand assembled here in California (USA). They're made under stringent environmental regulations set forth by the state of California.
Our factory, box maker, and fulfillment warehouse are within a 50 mile radius of each other in an effort to minimize our carbon footprint. No sweatshops involved. No exploitative labor conditions. No BS company trying to capitalize on the "vinyl resurgence". 100% for the love of vinyl.
It's not the cheapest way to make them, but we believe it's the most honest and ethical.
GRAMPA DON F/E
My Grampa Don spent his working life pressing vinyl. First as a press operator, then as an electroplate technician. He worked with Colombia Records at their Hollywood pressing plant from the 40's until the mid 60's, then finished his career at a pressing plant in East Hollywood. R.I.P. Grampa, till we meet again.
