I pack my records professionally, using 2 layers of bubblewrap and industry standard cardboard mailers designed to ship vinyl records. All records (except boxed sets and new records) are shipped sealed inside of a clear plastic sleeve, with the record and inner sleeve outside of the cover in order to avoid seam splitting during shipment.
I take pride in the fact that I safely shipped over 35,000 records to my customers.
I use a grading system based on the Goldmine Grading Standard. I visually grade both the record and the sleeve separately, under a bright light. These are the grades I use:
Still Sealed (SS) = a new record, sealed in its original shrinkwrap.
Near Mint (NM) Vinyl is near perfect. Very likely unplayed. At most, a light scuff appears on the record, but it should play without any noise or skips. The record sleeve should also be near perfect with only minor signs of wear. There should be no "ring wear" on the cover. (Ring wear is when the outline of the record inside shows through the sleeve.) ** NOTE :: I have yet to grade any cover NM, I grade covers either SEALED or EX. **
Excellent (EX) Vinyl should still play with no skips of any kind. There can be some very minor surface scuffs, but they should not affect the sound quality. The record sleeve can have some minor ring wear but it should be mostly in good shape. Also, there can be some minor creases in the corners but no splits in the seams.
Very Good+ (VG+) This is the grading category where the quality of the sound is affected -- there will be some surface noise -- and the vinyl will show wear, including surface scuffs and some light scratches. However, the record is still very listenable as there are no deep scratches that cause skips. On the cover, the corners may be slightly bent, but not broken. There may be wear to the seams but not tears or holes.
Very Good (VG) Vinyl doesn't necessarily look good, but still plays well enough. Surface noise will probably be present, including pops and clicks. At higher volume levels, the music should overpower any pops and clicks present. There may be seam splitting, but not complete separation of the sleeve panels from each other. There will be noticeable ring wear on the cover, but the cover should for the most part still be in good condition.
Good (VG-) Vinyl is well played and looks it. However, the record should still play without skipping. It will have substantial surface noise, pops and clicks. Loss of various parts of the dynamic range will occur due to worn grooves. This grade depends a lot on the owner and the type of records he or she collects. A rock record may still sound ok at a high volume, but quieter styles of music will be practically unlistenable. The record cover may have many problems including seam splits, tears, and writing on it.
