When record companies are left with stock of a particular release, they often choose to cut a small mark into the edge of the cover to indicate that this record is heavily discounted. This is partly so that shops will sell the record at a reduced price and the right to return no longer applies. The cut-out marking is usually very discreet and never affects the record itself.
Under flytning og forsendelse, kan plader inde i coveret slå hul i siderne. Det er derfor, at vi hos Vinylpladen.dk altid sender pladerne ude af deres cover i et beskyttende indersleeve.
