  1. Stacks of 100 blanks wrapped in plastic. As I cut and peel off the plastic, I can hear the disks rubbing together and squeaking under the pressure of unwrapping. As I take off the wrapper, they slide around rubbing together even more.

    I HATE NOT GETTING THEM ON SPINDLES! Why do people put up with this!?

  2. Well I keep all of my used spindles, and when I buy the non-spindled-wrapped stacks I simple slide the new pack of blanks on an old spindle. THEN I tear off the wrapper.
    Problem solved!

    If you will look at it very closely, shrinkwrap provides better "rub-proofing" than spindles during shipment. It is so tight that I can not imagine a disc being able to move even a bit. However, the rubbing will definitely happen, in a big way, if it is unwrapped your way. Just do the other poster's advice and you will be ok.

    What Neishaverse said. The discs themselves have a thicker hub than the writing surface, the writing surface shouldn't touch the next disc.

    If you got them all in cakeboxes, you would just have to dispose of the extra boxes. As long as they are properly shipped, with sufficient padding around the shrink wrapped discs, there should be no problem.

    I agree, I've got a quite a few bad discs on spindles, the discs that are wrapped are all fine every time.

    I agree with the first post. Shrinkwrapped discs are a pain in the butt. I'd rather have a spindle with the proper pressure foam on top and/or bottom as needed.

    The surface disc's shrinkwrapped DO NOT rub together as the statements made earlier are 100% correct, the hub is thicker than the playing surface, making it physically impossible for the recording surface to make contact with each other. If the construction of the discs were not as described, it would be difficult to remove the discs from the spinal one at a time. I buy all my blanks in hubs, never had a problem.

    Are you taking the plastic off before placing it on the spindle? If you put them on the spindle first and just slit and peel away the plastic, like you are supposed to, then they don't shift, rub, or even move at all.
