NSHNVD (Not So Happy New Vinyl Day): Beatles Stereo Remasters Boxed Set
Tip-on is the old school style of printing where the artwork is printed to paper which is then folded over and glued to 24pt chipboard shells. Direct to board is where they just print directly onto lighter weight jackets. It's kind of like the difference between a paperback and hardback book. Anyway, the Beatles jackets were direct printed onto really lightweight stock that seems about the weight used for Trident Gum packaging.
First world problems indeed. Spend more time listening and less time worrying about paper weight and inking methods.
