Topic: vinyl pressing (small runs)

anyone know any good pressing plants who will do small runs, like 100, i can't find anywhere that will do less than 300

Re: vinyl pressing (small runs)

You could do a run of lathes with Peter King
or maybe try getting just 100 test pressings done and then don't actually go ahead with a bigger run?
It'll cost you a pretty penny

the quality different between something like this and an actual vinyl press is actually hilarious. Would not advice other than for horrible noise.

Re: vinyl pressing (small runs)

I've tried the lathe cut experience, and this is definitely not for me!! ;-)
Sound is really, really bad.

Any info on pressing plants doing low runs in Europe?

It looks Discoelite is now:

Re: vinyl pressing (small runs)

any idea what the price with discoelite is like?
i've sent them an email - their website looks reassuring, despite my complete ignorance as to the process/technology.

Re: vinyl pressing (small runs)

also, i mentioned it in my own thread..
"Only Vinyl Distribution" will do runs of 150, but I don't know anyone who has used them before, so i'm hesitant about using them, even if they do seem really cheap.

Re: vinyl pressing (small runs)

discoelite just got back to me with a fantastic quote for 150LPs. i think i'm going with them.

Re: vinyl pressing (small runs)

You should give us a call or email , we can do runs of 100 test pressings only. We are very competitively priced and mastering can be attended, you can find some of our package prices here.
