Step 2

Audio Master & Artwork

Send us your mastered vinyl audio files along with the artwork files for your packaging and labels (properly prepped using our templates of course!).

Step 3

Artwork Proofs

We send you digital PDF proofs of all your artwork to review before we send it to print. It’s the absolute last chance to check everything so inspect carefully!

Step 4

Mastering, Electroplating & Stampers

lacquer master or direct metal master are cut then put through our electroplating department to create your metal stampers — a mold from which all of your records will be pressed from.

Step 5

Test Pressings Shipped To You

Using the metal stampers we press test records and ship those to you for your listening pleasure. These are physical proofs of your final records. In fact, we don’t press the rest until you give us the thumbs up.

Step 6 (last one)

Pressing, Assembly & Shipping

Once we have received your approval on the test pressings and artwork proofs, we’ll have your records pressed, packaging and labels printed, everything assembled, packaged up nicely and shipped right to you.
