I keep buying LP frames and figuring out quickly that they are generally not safe for my autographed album covers due to a number of reasons but primarily the glass resting directly on the cover itself.  I see that bagsunlimited.com has some options that won't break the bank (these aren't very high dollar albums i'm framing).  I'm wondering if you guys would recommend their frames and also if you would suggest one over the other?  I'm specifically looking at the matted frame vs. their "archival LP frame kit".  The archival version appears to still rest directly on the cover itself but has a sheet of mylar between the  polystyrene and the album cover. - Though my albums may not be fully signed Beatles or Stones albums, they still have some value and i'd like to keep them fairly safe (I am aware to keep out of sunlight, remove the record itself, etc).  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

Thabks so much, I will do that!
I think I only have heard about the sticking is with photos, but once again probably has to deal with humidity and when you try to take it out the photo would "rip" from the glass.

Also not sure, but I have heard stories of silver or gold sharpies being easier to rub off when humid.
Different types of ink and paint pens react differently when they come into contact with water (humidity), it's pretty hard to determine what type of ink it is signed in, always best to keep autographs in a humidity controlled environment.
