How vinyl records are pressed
Making vinyl records is a linear process. Each step needs to be completed before the next one can begin. Audio needs to be cut so that lacquers can be created. From there the lacquers are plated to create a stamper. These stampers are then use to press your records.

Through our vinyl cutting service, we take your master audio and cut lacquers, getting them ready for then next stage in the vinyl pressing process which is metal work. The metal work process uses electroplated nickel to create a mother, from which stampers are made to press your vinyl.

How much does it cost to press vinyl?
The cost for vinyl pressing depends on a few factors, such as the quantity of records you are ordering, the type of packaging, and even the turnaround time. Basic 12 inch vinyl bundles, including packaging, start at around $2200 ex GST. Some more common vinyl pressing bundles can be found at the bundles page.
What are your minimum runs?
Our minimum order is 100 units across 7, 10 & 12 inch vinyl records. We can’t do less than this. We often get asked if we can “press” one record, this isn’t possible. If this is something you’re after you’re better off looking for a business that does lathe cuts.
How long does it take to get vinyls pressed?
Our normal turnaround times for vinyl runs with a physical test pressing is 8-10 weeks. Due to COVID we are experiencing delays + 16 weeks. Turnaround times can be expedited with rush fees and air freight logistics. Please call to discuss. The vinyl industry globally is currently experiencing unprecedented demand which is causing all plants to push their turnarounds out. We’re currently experiencing turnarounds of around 18-22 weeks. We’re not able to guarantee any dates at this stage but can only advise current production times.
Are test pressings necessary?
Although not compulsory, we highly recommend a physical test pressing of your vinyl project. It is your way of checking that the audio sounds and plays correctly. By not getting a test pressing, you are approving the pressing as it is an won’t have a recourse if there are any errors.
