Here are some simple examples of labels with their respective printing prices:
We go the extra step to provide the best quality and satisfaction!
You may mail us your CD masters or data disks, or if you prefer, you may also upload files to the internet for us to download.
We can use MP3s, WAVs, AIFs, zipped files, etc. in 16 bit or even high definitioin 24 bit quality.
Once we have the music we will do a few "test cut" samples of a track or two and record them back into MP3 form to email you.
This gives you a better idea of the sound you can expect from vinyl before we advance to test pressings.
Upon test cut approval we will quickly move ahead to final mastering, electroforming, and the rest of the process.
A few details to consider when pressing records are track order, record speed (45 or 33 1/3 RPM), and gaps.
23 minutes of play time on a 12" at 33 1/3 RPM OR 9 minutes on a 7" at 33 1/3 RPM
15 minutes on a 12" at 45 RPM OR 6 minutes on a 7" at 45 RPM.
Of course several track gaps or the volume and phasing of the music can cause these numbers to drop some.
Under 16 minutes of play time on a 12" at 33 1/3 RPM OR Under 6 minutes 7" at 33 1/3 RPM*
Under 12 minutes on a 12" at 45 RPM OR Under 4 minutes on a 7" at 45 RPM.
(*7" 33 1/3 recording should only be used if completely necessary due to inner groove quality constraints)
As for the gaps, we can create both play time silence and/or visual spaces for track separation.
We can add a few seconds of silence in between tracks and/or even "bump" the lathe while mastering to give the listener a visual gap.
Here is an example of the difference between a constant cut and visual track separation:
