Merge are not the makers of good quality vinyl records. Both in sound quality and physical product. For starters, the outer jackets are made from cheap "thin" brown paper pulp and the vinyl itself is by and large a noisy affair (most likely from the use of recycled vinyl) which produces horrible sound quality issues. I've ordered directly from the label and "every single LP" I have received via this channel have had corner bumps or creases.

Their vinyl of the past 3 years is always warped (with the exception of the 180 gram releases). Many pretty badly (how it got passed QA is a head scratcher.)

So all you bands that I like - find a better label to make your records....
