We lathe cut your master lacquer as we believe, when skilfully and expertly prepared, lathe cut lacquers are the basis for a superior product because of its warmer sound properties and the capability of a more dynamic bass range.
The sound engineers in our mastering department draw from years of experience whilst passionately keeping pace with musical trends & innovation. This wealth of knowledge is the foundation for masterfully cut lacquers to achieve the perfect end result.
We have modern semi-automatic lines to provide capacity and flexibility as needed. Our old school manual presses are ideal for special colour effects, haze or swirl, simple marbling or multi-colour splatter and half & half colour combos.
We have a vast range of transparent and opaque vinyl colours to choose from or if you have a very specific requirement, we also manufacture bespoke vinyl in Pantone or RAL colours to perfectly match your artwork or designs.
The Print & Packaging...
Unarguably, nothing beats the popularity of the standard record sleeve, but what about if you want to make a unique impact with a limited collector’s edition, boxset or exclusive release? When an upgrade to special finishing or gatefold sleeve is simply not enough?
That’s when our concept engineers come into play. We develop, prototype and produce any type of packaging conceivable. Whether it’s wood, metal, multi-facetted cardboard, acrylic or mixed material, we assemble and deliver a highly customised solution.
CD & DVD Work...
Naturally we have large scale CD & DVD manufacturing to compliment multi-format releases. Our daily capacity is in the 100s of thousands and we offer a wide variety of packing options from the simple wallet to industry favorites such as digi-paks or jewel cases, as well as any kind of slipcase and book bound options.
Everything we do is in-house on our own printing, finishing and gluing lines. We ship anywhere in the world; to you directly or into distribution.
