A tip on jacket, is an old style record jacket that is often hand glued and fabricated in order to match the quality and style of historic record jackets. Tip on, refers to the folded seams on the paper. The printing is done on paper as usual which is then glued to heavy board stocks called blanks. The effect over standard direct to board jackets, for most record collectors, is similar to the differences between a hardback and paperback book.
