RECORD ROOTS: Accessible, modular frames for your vinyl
Records are fundamentally for listening to. They offer a unique listening experience, with unparalleled analogue sound but that’s not all. Each vinyl comes with a protective sleeve with often meticulously designed album art to compliment the sound. We can’t really appreciate the artwork when the record is stored in a traditional record crate so we’ve designed a product which enables you to display your vinyl collection on your wall. Record Roots is a patent pending, expandable frame for your vinyl.
Parallel straps sewn onto canvas hold the top and bottom edges of each record against the wall so unlike normal frames, you can quickly access your records when you want to play them. The product is attached to the wall using damage-free self-adhesive velcro or alternatively, if your wall surface is brick work, you can attach using screws.
One piece displays 8 records but you can zip them together to display as many as you want.
How many records does one piece display?
Each piece displays 8 records - 2 horizontal by 4 vertical.
Is the self-adhesive hook and loop tape strong enough?
Yes! The tape has been tested on various different walls for over 6 months and it's not moving.
Will the self-adhesive tape damage my wall when removed?
This tape was designed for mounting onto the wall. It can be carefully removed without taking off any paintwork. It's not recommended on walls with wallpaper although in many instances it won't even damage these walls.
How should I mount it on walls with wallpaper?
In many instances, it will be fine however we can't recommend using the hook and loop tape as in some instances it could cause damage. You can mount it using screws through the eyelets positioned along the top edge of the product.
How should I mount it if my wall is exposed brickwork?
For textured surfaces like brickwork which the hook and loop tape won't stick to we recommend mounting with screws through the o-rings on the top edge.
How can they be joined together?
Open-ended zips are positioned on each vertical edge, which will join onto the next piece.
Can I rotate the frame?
No, the frame must be displayed vertically.
What if I want to buy more than 8 pieces?

Risks and challenges
I've worked for a number of companies that produce soft products handling all aspects of bringing textiles products to market so this definitely isn’t my ‘first rodeo’!
I've also meticulously planned the campaign which should mean that the production and fulfilment process runs smoothly. That said, some eventualities are uncontrollable but we’ll do everything we can to prevent delays. I also promise to keep our supporters updated with progress.
I've worked with our chosen manufacturer for other projects to manufacture thousands of other sewn products and they're one of the best factories out there. I'm delighted with both the quality of workmanship and their demonstration of ethical business practice.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
