Pressing records with us

Five super simple steps to guide you towards meeting your deadline, while smoothly navigating you through the production process.

1. Audio masters

We need a single audio file for each side of your record. Share a link with us or use our wetransfer page.

  • Should be mastered specifically for vinyl (different than CD/Online)
  • Files should be equalized and sequenced (songs in the same order as you want on the finished records), with the correct amount of leader or blank space in between songs (we suggest 3 to 5 seconds).
  • Identify audio files as “side A” and “side B”
  • Tell us if you or your mastering engineer have any special instructions

2. Print-ready artwork

Needs to follow these specs:

  • 300 dpi
  • CMYK Colour (no RGB)
  • All fonts converted to outlines
  • Layered working files preferred
  • Built using our templates (make sure they are on a separate or removable layer). NOT embedded in your artwork. If in doubt, remove the template from the files.

3. Forms

The following forms are required for all orders. These will be emailed to you when we begin production.

  • IPR (Intellectual Property Rights)
  • Track listing
  • Mechanical licensing for any cover songs

4. Shipping address

  • Provide us with your current shipping address & phone number for your test pressings AND final product (if different)

5. Paying for your order

  • Our preferred method of payment is by e-transfer (Canada only).
  • If you are outside of Canada we accept Visa or MasterCard. A form will be sent to you.

All orders required a 50% deposit to begin. A second payment is due upon approval of your test pressings. Then a final payment is due once the order is complete.
