Record Pressing's current
capacity is over 10 million vinyl records a year. All our lacquer masters are produced by the best mastering
artists in the business. If you are at all familiar with the logistics
of vinyl production, and the importance of loud records, you
know why it is important to have the know how when producing a lacquer master. We can take any special requests on mastering, such as
shaped vinyl, or endless or locked grooves. We also offer a full range
of pre-mastering studio services, which ranges from simple compiling to
full mastering. Lacquer preparation is generally done on a Neumann
Lathe. We do receive many lacquers from outside sources as well. Besides
standard black vinyl records, many colors including phosphorescent and
picture discs can be produced. We are also the only manufacturer that can produce the Colorlight audiophile quality color record for your pressing needs.
Besides the standard CD (120 mm in diameter), with silver or gold metalizing,
we are also offering the "single" version measuring 80 mm, as well as
CD's that have no stacking ring and can be printed all the way to the
center hole with no knock-outs. We can now also print using the off-set
printing method as well as the standard silk-screen method. This yields
a much higher resolution than most manufacturers are capable of. In addition
to this we can manufacture shape CDs. The total capacity is over to 450
million CD's a year. Our CD production operates nonstop, 7 days a week.
