How much does a vinyl record weigh?

Whether you are looking to store them or you are trying to ship them, it’s important to ask yourself “how much does a vinyl record weigh?”.

When it comes to LP records, there are 12” and 7”. The 12” vinyl records can weigh around 120-150 grams. The cheaper and lighter records can weigh around 80-90 grams.

However, the “fatties” can weigh upwards of 200 grams.

This is generally a sign of a higher quality record.

The 7” vinyl records will weigh around 40 grams.

Generally speaking, LP records are a little on the heavier side.

Think about this, though. If you have 100 records, it will only take up 12” of space, but it will weigh 15kg.
