What is included in the vinyl pressing prices?

We've aimed to simplify the whole vinyl pressing order process and prices. The prices above are fully inclusive. This means it includes everything you see in the example picture.

The prices include the cost of creating the lacquer cut or DMM master cut, the metal-works or galvanics process to create the vinyl metallised stampers, the cost of pressing vinyl's, with printed labels and where applicable, the cost of the printed packaging such as the vinyl sleeves printing and gatefold wallets printing. If you are based in the UK then the price includes shipping to one UK mainland address. The prices exclude VAT so this will need to be added on to the total price. Although we try and manufacture the exact quantity ordered, pressings are subject to a 15% tolerence. This means you may receive more or less than your final order quantity.

Test-pressings

It is highly recommended to order test-pressings with your vinyl order. Test-pressings enable you to listen to a few 'test' copies of your vinyl before the main pressing is carried out. This way if there are any issues, it can be flagged up and corrected before the main pressing is done. Test-pressings are delivered with white labels, and in white inners. Test-pressings cost £45.00 for 7-10 units.

Test-pressings can take anywhere from two to four weeks to prepare, it maybe the case that you do not have enough time to have test-pressings, in which case we can press the main job without the test-pressings. In this situation, we do check and quality control the records as they are coming off the press for skips or pops etc, unfortunatelty we cannot be liable in the event an issue is not picked up in quality control and are present on the final pressings.

Another option incase you are not having TP's, is to only press part of the job that you require for your deadline, and then having the rest of the pressing once the initial ones are received. For example if you want 500 vinyls, but only require 100 for your launch event, then have the initial 100 pressed with the printed labels and packaging, and all being well, then the remaining can be pressed following receipt of the 100.

Sleeve and gatefold packaging for pressed vinyl records

Click here to see prices for vinyl sleeves and gatefold printing only.

Our card packaging is world renowned and this includes our vinyl card sleeves and gatefold card cases for vinyl. We use the finest card stocks to create a heavy-duty, custom printed, card case for your vinyl records. Our packaging comes with the option of a gloss or matt laminated finish to the packaging as standard, and it's free of charge.

Lamination versus UV finishes

Laminated finishes are superior to machine UV finishes, as they offer more protection to the printed sleeve, and really enhance the look and vibrancy of the overall vinyl package to stand out from the crowd.

There are many customisable options available for the vinyl packaging, including the addition of a spine, cut-out of holes in the centre of the sleeves, this can be a single hole to one side or to both sides, spot UV or lamination finish, foil blocking in a variety of colours, embossing on the sleeves and special pantone colours that include standard, metalized and neon pantone shades.

12 inch vinyl pressing, UK

Vinyl's that are pressed to 12 inch size are for a full length album release. We can cut these to 33rpm or 45rpm.

Most 12 inches are cut to 33rpm speed, this can hold about 22 minutes of audio per side, and they sound great. 12 inch vinyl can be cut to 45rpms as well, this results in a shorter total audio length per side, about 15minutes, some opt for the 45rpm speeds as for any given time interval there is more audio information available in that space resulting in a better sonic experience. Think of standard definition and high definition television.

Our 12 inch vinyl disc are available in standard 140 gram weight, in heavy 180 gram weight, as coloured discs, and as picture discs.

7 inch vinyl pressing, London UK

7 inch vinyls are usually pressed at a speed of 45rpm, and thus are also known as 45s. The higher speed and smaller diameter of a 7 inch vinyl results in a shorter total audio capacity per side. A 45rpm will hold about 4 minutes 30 seconds per side, and if it is cut at 33rpm then it can hold about 7 minutes per side.

The 7 inch vinyl record is suitable for a single or EP release. Our 7 inch records are available in standard weight of about 42 grams, heavy weight of 70 grams, 7 inch splutter or coloured vinyl and 7 inch picture vinyl discs.

Centre record labels

Also known as centre labels, the record label is the round piece of paper stuck to both sides of the record. This usually contains information about the artist, the track listings, which side is which, (side A and side B), and other information about copyright, the speed of the record and relevant contact details for the artist, record or publishing company.

The print is applied to a plain white label, and can range from a one colour black, all the way to full colour. We can print the labels using special or pantone colours. The hole in the centre of the label is inch, however when you send us your artwork do not indicate this hole in the artwork, and ensure there is a 3mm bleed to the outer edge of the label only if the design is not white in colour on the outer edges of the label.

Inner sleeves

The inner sleeve is a paper pouch that the record is inserted into, before it goes into its packaging. The inner sleeve offers an additional level of protection to the record from being scratched or attracting dust and finger smudges.

As standard all our vinyl packages come packaged into white unprinted inner sleeves, unless specified as different by the client. The sleeves are available with a custom print. This can be a one colour or full colour print.

Vinyl record packaging, sleeves and gatefold cases

Sleeves and gatefold packaging is available for both 7 inch and 12 inch records. This type of packaging offers a great opportunity for displaying information about the artist, the track listing, song lyrics and other cover art that represents the band and artist.

A sleeve is like a cardboard pocket open from one side, into which the records are placed. A gatefold is similar to a wallet in that it's like two sleeves joined together with a fold in the middle, and opens up rather like a conventional wallet. The record is inserted in thru the outer edge to one side.

The gatefold wallet is also ideal for a double vinyl release where both outside edges of the gatefold can be a pocket to hold each of the vinyl records.

Our card sleeves and gatefold vinyl packaging is printed onto 325gsm white back card stock, and comes as standard with a choice of gloss or matt laminated finish. Other options available are spines, centre hole punch out, and special ink printing such as neon or metallised colours.
