Feel, look at, listen in a relaxed way:
iba vinyl covers are the special eye-catchers in the record rack

There have been many different vinyl covers since the invention of the record. The iba Smartsleeve is different, however. Feel and listen to your favorite music while looking at our special eye-catcher. If you take a closer look, you will see that our vinyl covers are much thicker and more stable than standard covers.

Our IBA Smartsleeve (also called Tip-On Cover) and our Mediabook® Vinyl-Size (special hardcover variant) are based on printed sheets of paper. After the individual finishing (varnish or foil) they are laminated around the cardboard core. In addition to numerous design options, our vinyl covers impress with their high stability and quality. Consistent quality is also guaranteed by our fully automated production.

We manufacture the Smartsleeve as single or gatefold covers. With the gatefold variant, a firmly glued-in booklet is also possible. A real iba original!

We manufacture limited series with embossed numbering with hot foil embossing. Our box sets for records are ideal for collectors.

We would be happy to send you a vinyl cover sample. Be free to feel the high quality of our record packaging.

    These are your advantages with iba hartmann LOGO:

    The processing: “Made in Augsburg, Germany.”

    With us, no printed iba vinyl cover is like the others: After all, we are the specialists for custom-made products. We know that every detail is important, because after all, our customers consciously order our individually printed iba vinyl cover. As such, these are the calling cards of many producers and labels, companies and corporations. Everything has to fit: print image, print status, dimensions, materials, finishing and all extras.

    QUALITY is actually very important to us. And not just since 1996, when we certified ourselves for ISO 9001 for the first time. Certification to ISO 14001 took place in 2021. And FSC has of course also been an important topic for us for many years.

    All iba employees ensure quality because experience and a trained eye are still the best controls.

    Globalization is good, home is better. In-house production has the home advantage: short distances, reliable information and transparent processes.

    All possibilities: printing, embossing, surface, extras.

    You can order your printed iba vinyl cover from iba hartmann LOGO in a relaxed manner, because you are in good hands here: With us, the vinyl covers becomes a strong eye-catcher – a visual and haptic experience. We know all the extras. We love the details.

    Printing: Our offset printing is the best guarantee for a perfect print result. All special colors are also possible in offset printing. We optionally offer numbering or serialization, for a particularly high-quality result even by means of hot foil stamping.

    Embossing: Hot foil or blind embossing always looks pretty stylish and classy!

    Surface: Our print finishing made of PP film protects the print. The matt finish has a noble effect, a glossy structured surface is robust, a “soft touch” PP film needs to be touched.

    Extras: Turn a simple product into an individual medium: Not only through the print and the material, but also through the details: Different cardboard grammages and surface designs draw the attention of customers and employees to the essential aspects of your iba vinyl covers.

    Personal, competent and long-term.

    Tired of being on hold on the phone only to finally get back to a new contact person?

    We are different: Our service concept consists of long-term iba employees who know what they are talking about. We live long-term customer relationships.

That’s how we get to know each other – and that’s a good thing.

    Questions & Answers:

    Do vinyl covers really protect enough?

    Your record is protected by the paper inner sleeve embedded in the vinyl cover. The special protection is also guaranteed by the high grammage of our cardboard cores. Here we offer you different material versions. Talk to us. We will find the optimal solution.

    What materials do you use to make vinyl covers?

    The vinyl covers consist of a solid cardboard core with grammages of 350-600g, covered with the refined printed sheets. For example, we use Kraftpack cardboard for old school covers. White cardboard with a smooth or rough inside is often used for modern vinyl covers. Please do not hesitate to contact us. We will tailor your vinyl cover to your wishes and musical styles. We will find your dream variant.

    Do you also produce different formats?

    Yes, we produce vinyl covers in the common record formats: for singles, EPs and LPs. You can use our vinyl cover packaging for all 7-inch, 10-inch and 12-inch records.
