We can facilitate shipment of bulk vinyl packages to registered business entities in some countries outside of the United States, but additional shipping fees and VAT may need to be confirmed and paid prior to shipment.
If shipping to the EU or UK, please provide your valid VAT registration (if applicable) - this must be in the name of the billing party. Shipments to the UK or Czech Republic will be charged for VAT - check with your tax advisor on eligibility to reclaim this cost.
If shipping outside of the EU, UK or the United States, goods will be shipped DAP (Delivered at Place) and the receiving party, or it's authorized designate in the country of delivery, must serve as the importer of record and is responsible for customs fees, duties, taxes and/or VAT and, if applicable, resolving any customs clearance issues into the territory.
Please contact us with further questions or to move forward with international shipping of vinyl projects.
12" LP @ 33 1/3 RPM - 14-18 minutes per side will give you a great sounding cut. Leading up to and over 20 minutes level starts to drop, surface noise will be more noticeable and bass might need to be trimmed. Sides over 24 minutes are possible but start to demonstrate the adjustments more noticeably.
12" LP @ 45 RPM - 12 minutes per side is optimal. For sides over 15 minutes, changing to 33 1/3 RPM might make sense.
Artwork guidelines summary:
Details on artwork submission are included on each artwork design template, plus we encourage you to read or provide your graphic designer our artwork guidelines.
Our vinyl records are produced in the Czech Republic. U.S. customs requires country of origin to be clearly marked for any product imported into the United States. We can include "Made in Czech Republic" on a small, 17mm x 10mm white or clear printed sticker affixed to the outside of your packaging, or you may include this clearly and visibly on the externally facing printed credits or other text of your album art.
Given the multiple steps, complexity and unpredictability of vinyl production, the final delivered quantity may differ from your order quantity. For jobs below 1000 units, the over/under allowance is +/- 10%, with a shipped quantity typically being an overage of 3% to 8%. The overage allowance helps ensure we deliver at least your order quantity. If the shipped quantity is below the order quantity plus overage provision already charged, we will refund the difference to reflect the actual units shipped.
