PRAISE FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

"I just love my new dividers. It saves me so much time when I am search through my collection looking for something to reissue. They are high quality construction and they look great. Thanks for making them!" - Chad Kassem, Acoustic Sounds

"The quality of the finished product has always been top notch and at first exceeded my expectations until the 2nd or 3rd purchase, when at that point, your high quality product is now just an expectation that I have, and a reason why I come back to purchase more! "- Jeffrey M. 

"Every time I grab a record from my stash, I’m excited to see Koeppel’s handiwork dividing and conquering my vinyl.  They are sturdy, good looking and way better than those ugly, floppy plastic things I’ve had kicking around since I was 18.  Also, as a woodworker and one who respects wood, I really appreciate the attention to detail that Kate and her crew put into their products. A must have for anyone into vinyl who appreciates quality, craft and the beauty of things made right.” - Eric Astor, Furnace Records

"I've seen your products online for a long time it seems. I really like the simplistic, yet very well made record dividers. The packaging is over the top, and so is your attention to detail. I'll be ordering more as my collection continues to grow. " - Ryan L.

"These are such beautiful gifts for both avid music lovers and dabblers alike. They're original and well-crafted; a perfect example of when it's better to buy personal, artist-made, off-the-high-street goods. Kate was super helpful and friendly. Very much recommended :)" - Rose H.

"The package arrived safe and sound and was put together with such awesome design, from the cool tape on the outside of the box to the brown paper inside wrapping around the record dividers. I bought them as a gift for my boyfriend and he couldn't be happier." - Melissa M.

"LOVE love love all my Koeppel stuff, dividers, crates, so chic and smart!" - Paul R. 

"I simply wanted to thank you personally for the excellence of your service and assistance. You can be assured of our recurring visits (and purchases!) to your site!" - Melanie D.

"My dividers landed this weekend. I have to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE these things. They are absolutely worth the money and I'm so glad I have them. Ordering was an absolute dream and I highly recommend my fellow music obsessed family pick up some stuff from her shop. You'll dig it!" -Tyr M. 

"I love the record bag, it is really high quality and great looking. Delivery was quick and I was kept up to date. Would definitely recommend the bag." - David H.

"I'm a designer and so I do this stuff... I thought the illustrated shipping tape and the fold-over sticker were really great! It got me more excited about what was inside. I also really appreciated that the "brand experience" continued on the inside with several inserts. To me this shows that a company cares about the products it makes and the customers who purchase them." - Brett M.

"Before the dividers, I always found myself piling a stack of records then eventually archiving them when I compiled a stack of 3-4. Now that I have the dividers, I have been good at putting them away after every listen. I think the dividers have forced that habit in making sure I'm always organized with my collection." - Ralph S. 

PRESS EXCERPTS

“Though deceptively simple in design, the dividers are beautifully made, and as attractive as they are sturdy—built to stand the test of time.” -  The Absolute Sound

"This "Now Spinning" display is perfect for the record collector who also appreciates tidiness, minimal design and products made in the United States." -The Washington Post 

"Once you have stuffed your IKEA shelving with records, you probably won’t have a clue where anything is. The classic solution to that is a set of cheap plastic record dividers on which you can scribble the alphabet or music genres, to provide a sense of cataloging. Cheap but messy and definitely tacky. Kate Koeppel is a US-based designer who has launched a collection of restrained, high quality, laser cut wood record dividers as an alternative." - The Vinyl Factory

"The physical endeavor of playing a record is part of its beauty, but no one should have to rummage through an unorganized stack of vinyl. These sleek engraved dividers will streamline the process." - Details

 "...Let’s call this a proper record bag, an alternative to your fusty old satchel, which marries style and substance, with the added gravitas of being beautifully hand-crafted in San Francisco." -The Vinyl Factory

"For those who love records but don’t necessarily love organizing them, Kate Koeppel’s typographic dividers offer a handy, elegant solution that allows collectors to sort their wares alphabetically or by genre. The tabs are handmade from laser-cut wood, and though they aren’t cheap, they are very useful, super-durable, and go a long way to making your prized black discs look like a Serious Record Collection."  - Pitchfork

"From the second you unpackage the beautifully designed box the dividers come in, you very quickly realise that this is a product of complete and utter beauty."  -  Hi-fi Choice
