Hey guys,

Recently I've started noticing that sunlight coming through the window in the room I have my decks in is landing on the shelf where I keep my vinyl.

The window isn't completely clear, its one of those privacy ones you get in bathrooms that have weird patterns on so none can perv on you peeing.

I always keep the records in the covers so the sunlight isn't directly landing on the record surface but the covers do seem to get warm after a while.

Will this damage them in anyway? Should I move them? Or could I stick some paper on the window to deflect the light abit?

Cheers

Unless you wanna use your collection as a distorted frisbee then don't pack them on top of one another. Stand them together side by side.

This. Vinyls heavy old stuff, stack it up and the grooves can get mis-shaped.

And as for sunlight, as has been said, just move them out the way (y)
