Topic: Printing places (7" sleeves, stickers etc.)
Hello there! I can't seem to post in the "useful info" forum, perhaps because nothing i say is usually useful, which is a clever bit of forum programming, but anyway...
there ya go 'nally! (from ellie)
I just wanted to recommend this printing place in Tamworth, near Birmingham, called ALDEBARAN PRINTING.
I just got 500 double-sided, full colour 7" sleeves (i.e. 14" x 7" bits of card) done by them, and they look beautiful! didn't cost a lot either, and definitely cheaper than other places i'd been to. I saved a tenner by picking them up myself - not really much of a saving, but it was really nice to see the workshop and the people who work there - all quite small-scale, family business, friendly etc.
a lot of labels use them, so they actually know what you're talking about when you mention 7" records, and they're amenable for when you want something a little outlandish (tracing paper for example). Runs of 1000, or runs of 10 - they can accomodate you.
Also, i don't know if anyone has any 7"'s off the Errol label (Redneck Manifesto, Disoma / Escanna split, Tracer AMC etc.) but they're die-cut fold out sleeves and they're awesome, and Aldebaran have the die for that, so i plan on using it for a future record sometime.
