Topic: vinyl pressing / tape manufacturing

my friend and i are starting a new label and have a few releases lined up... the place i used to use for vinyl pressing has gone really shit (both quality and admin wise) and we're looking for a new affordable gaff to do short-run 7" vinyl pressing. if anyone could recommend a few places that would be much appreciated.

also we're looking to put out a couple of tapes too. any good tape pressing places? preferably somewhere that does on-body printing.

There are already so many threads about this if you search, but for tapes: tapeline.co.uk

Re: vinyl pressing / tape manufacturing

one thing... i read a lot of this forum about Discoelite/Phonopress... has anyone got an example of their pricing? emailed them a little while ago and have heard nothing back.

Just did a 12" with them, really pleased with the results

200 black 12"s in paper sleeves + 10 TPs, just a touch over 500quid

Re: vinyl pressing / tape manufacturing

that's really good! did you have center labels done? and did that price include vat/delivery?

Re: vinyl pressing / tape manufacturing

That price included delivery, just don't ask for an invoice otherwise you'd have to pay for some form of VAT/customs

but we did not get center labels done.  don't think it would be much extra for them though.

Re: vinyl pressing / tape manufacturing

excellent, i'll give them another shout. cheers for the info!

Re: vinyl pressing / tape manufacturing

if you still have difficulties getting in touch, drop me a PM and i'll try and fix it for you.

turnaround was less than a month, too.

Re: vinyl pressing / tape manufacturing

nice one... all good, managed to get hold of them in the end. i'll let you know how it all pans out.
