Also, is it OK to store records flat?
Vinyl records need to be stored in an upright position to ensure they stay in good condition. Records that have been stored at a slant for an extended period of time can warp because of the uneven pressure that has been placed on them. This is why records are often kept in crates that position them upright.
Also Know, should vinyl records be stored vertically or horizontally? Horizontal vinyl record storage means records are pressed atop each other which means warped grooves. For long-lasting grooviness, stand records up completely vertical (no leaning) while storing them. Do Give Em Some Room. Cramming records next to each other is also a no-no.

Are stacking records bad?
One way is by stacking them. Never stack records on top of each other whether in their jackets or not. This is one sure fire way to cause warping, possible cracking of the vinyl record because of the weight, and will inevitably produce scuff marks and ring wear on the album cover marring the artwork.
