Vinyl Pressing

We press vinyl. We also believe that you don’t have to be expensive to provide top quality products. So we combined our ethos for affordable products with the knowledge and expertise that has existed for 50+ years to make high quality records. We provide a one-stop manufacturing solution from mastering, vinyl pressing and printed materials right through to delivery into distribution. We offer lacquer cutting as standard, as it offers a more dynamic bass range providing a smoother, warmer and more pleasing sound due to its wider and deeper grooves.

Not only do we offer some of the quickest turnarounds and best value in the industry for 7” and 12” formats, we also offer additional options for colours, effects and heavy vinyl pressing and the option to change vinyl colours within the pressing run. Naturally we produce from the highest quality compound materials, alongside the best equipment and expert staff to deliver a perfect result every time.

Colours

We have a vast choice of transparent/translucent or opaque vinyl colours to choose from, the columns on the right only show a small selection of what is available.

Effects

Quite often one colour is not enough so we give you the option of adding colour effects, such as colour in colour haze or swirl effects, simple marble or multicolour splatter as well as doughnut and half and half colour combos.

Heavy weight

Heavy vinyl is ultimately less prone to warping and is more stable during playback, so when it comes to the final product many people prefer the thicker, weightier feel of heavy vinyl. Additionally, groove depth makes a significant difference especially for dynamic and volume rich sound, so we offer heavy 180g vinyl for 12″ and 70g for 7″ records.

Lacquer Mastering

Traditionally Lacquer Cutting has been the more expensive option which meant Direct Metal Mastering (DMM) became more popular due to the less steps involved (Lacquers require an additional step during the galvanic process) and quicker turnarounds. Lacquer cut mastering produces a warmer sound and less skipping due to the groove depth and the drum beats and general bass frequencies appear richer and more present. This is why we work with the finest technicians and sound engineers, relying on the experience of men and women that have been pressing records in the 1970s and 1980s when lacquer cutting was the traditional method of mastering records. We firmly believe that it is still the basis for a superior product due to it’s warmer sound and more dynamic bass range, which is why we offer Lacquer Cutting as standard with your vinyl pressing.
