Topic: how much would it cost to put out a 10"

a band of a friend of me has just released a cdep on a label but the label can't afford to do a vinyl release of it now

and the guys themself can't afford it either because most of their money went into making the cdep possible

so i would like to help them out because they really want to release it on vinyl too

it would be a realese of about 200 to 300 10"s
prefered on coloured vinyl (because they're all dorks like me)

any good sites for pressing plants or something around?
helpfull tips into releasing something by yourself?

thanks

10" cost about the same as 12"

has some stuff i think

Re: how much would it cost to put out a 10"

according to the http://www.gzcd.com price calculator:


300 coloured vinyl 10", b&w label, no sleeve = £609 ex vat
500 coloured vinyl 10", b&w label, no sleeve = £618 ex vat

Re: how much would it cost to put out a 10"

try eldorado too. they might be cheaper then gz.

you should listen to more eno.

Re: how much would it cost to put out a 10"

thanks for the info so far smile

bummer that the eldorado site doesn't have a pricelist of some sort

ralf (if you read this), in one of the other topics about this you said they did the kriegstanz 10" at a dutch pressing plant, can you give me a link to their site or something?

thanks again smile

Re: how much would it cost to put out a 10"

just email eldorado and ask for a price list.

you should listen to more eno.

Re: how much would it cost to put out a 10"

eldorado is helpful and nice but i highly doubt it will be cheaper than gzcd. just so you know.

Re: how much would it cost to put out a 10"

Eldorado is way more expensive than GZCD !!!!!

y a la qualité, pis y a la perfection

Re: how much would it cost to put out a 10"

Yeah GZ's cheaper, and they have an online calculator that is good, BUT if you are doing colour vinyl for less than 500 records, you get charged a fixed fee (i.e. adding colour costs the same for 100 or 400 records), so it may actually work out cheaper per record to do 500 copies, or something like that. Whether you can get rid of all those is another matter. The minumum on printing sleeves is 500 too, so if you get 300 records done and you want them to do the sleeves, they either throw away the extras or send them to you. Gatefold sleeves push the price quite a lot too. Yeah

Re: how much would it cost to put out a 10"

yeah, doing less than 500 is pretty pointless IMO. its cheaper going for 500.

Re: how much would it cost to put out a 10"

Santo Caserio are planning a 10" soon aren't they? how's the 7" doing?

By the way, if you do a one-sided record (bit gimmicky maybe) you halve your mastering cost, so you could save quite a bit there.

no one ever believe me when i say this. see now kids who got all upset when i said i thought it would be more economical to print 500 7"s? (not that i can afford it now coz i got fired sad )

Re: how much would it cost to put out a 10"

Joe, people werent being upset about you printing 500 copies of the record economically, they were more pointing out you were trying to print 500 records for a band which had currently only done like 3 gigs and is progressing all the time.

yeah if you do a one sided record screen something on the blank side. thats always a good idea.

i was talking purley about the fact that instead of spending 50 quids to make it white, why not spend 50 quid to get 200 more 7"s pressed, anyway it doesnt matter.

Re: how much would it cost to put out a 10"

I think I calculated that with mastering and 300 10"s from Erika with everything will put me back about $700 if I do a 10" for my indie rock band Conversation.

I could never sing a song I didn't feel.

Re: how much would it cost to put out a 10"

cheapset place by far is www.sfhuk.net £300 for 100 black 10" excluding vat and delivery which takes it up to about £400 adding them on.
200 10" with coloured vinyl from them is £540 excluding Vat and delivery.

Re: how much would it cost to put out a 10"

again, thanks a lot smile

Re: how much would it cost to put out a 10"

sorry. didn't read this topic till now. Record industry has a site here:

http://www.recordindustry.com/

They're more pricey than GZ, but not only is their environmental record a lot better, so is the quality in my opinion. Also the added benefit is that you can communicate with them in Dutch and stop by there to discuss exactly what you want as well as just pick your records up when they're done (saves you a lot of postage and import tax). You can arrange to be there when they cut the vinyl etc. etc.

Re: how much would it cost to put out a 10"

They look really good, and the environmental thing is a bonus (can't find details of that on the site though). My Dutch is a little rusty, so would you (Ralf) be willing to act as a go-between in case someone wants to press up a record? or is it only worthwhile if you're in the Netherlands...
