Manufacturing your vinyl records

Nowadays, it seems that music lovers once again want a physical product that they can hold in their hands. They want to be able to look at it, see it spinning and hear the soft crackle of the vinyl. The unique look, feel and acoustics of vinyl records form a soothing counterpoint to the sober uniformity of the digital music world.

Today’s buyer of vinyl is not in the market for a cheap product. Rather, they are looking for something special; a valuable and physically durable object. We can offer all this and more. We will work with you to develop the perfect concept and manufacture your vinyl records in a quality that is simply unsurpassable.

It does not matter whether we are dealing with a select edition being released in limited numbers, a hit with a large production run or a product from your current release schedule. We approach each individual project with the same level of dedication and diligence. Our attention to detail is exceptional, and we extend the same degree of focus to the entire vinyl product.

Vinyl records à la carte

We press your records in all available formats: 7-inch, 10-inch and 12-inch, in classic black or in any one of more than 45 transparent to opaque vinyl colours and in several multicolour versions. In addition, we offer vinyl discs in special colour designs manufactured to your own specifications.

We press your records in grammages of 140 or 180 heavyweight, made of audiophile virgin vinyl as standard. Alternatively, we can offer pressings made from environmentally friendly recycled ReVinyl or 100% sustainably produced BioVinyl. Or for special projects, we create Picture Discs and Shaped Vinyls based on your own your motif.

Top quality pressing

Quite a few pressing plants in Europe work with machinery that is half a century old. And in some places, the available specialist knowledge − which is also essential for high-quality production − is just as outdated as the machines. This is a great pity because records today have the potential to sound even better than they did in their heyday.

The improved quality is made possible by the new technologies available in audio mastering, electroplating and replication. The vinyl records you order from us will be made of 100% virgin vinyl and pressed by seasoned professionals on the best machines in Europe. You will receive top-quality vinyl records that have been “made in Germany”.

Artful vinyl cutting

For the transfer of your master you can count on what is very likely the most experienced cutting team in the country. Depending on the nature of the content or your personal preference, we will transfer your digital master onto a nitrocellulose lacquer disc or direct-to-metal onto a copper plate. Each method has its own particular advantages and disadvantages.

The foils or plates are used to create the stampers; the metal plates can be galvanized directly, while a multistage electroforming process is required for the lacquers. You can assure yourself that the cutting, electroplating and the production of the stamper have been carried out with accuracy  by checking the test pressing that is supplied prior to the start of batch production.

Vinyl records of all types

Black Vinyl | Coloured Vinyl | Corona Vinyl | Etched Vinyl | Inkspot Vinyl | Marbled Vinyl | Picture Disc | Propeller Vinyl | Shaped Vinyl | Splatter Vinyl | Split Vinyl | Vinyl with push-out center | ReVinyl | Biovinyl


BioVinyl is qualitatively identical to the ordinary LP. The difference lies solely in the production of the pressing material. The added value of BioVinyl comes from the CO2-neutral production of the PVC as part of a sustainable supply chain in the sense of the circular economy.

The key is that the petroleum previously required for PVC production is replaced by recycled hydrocarbons in a chemically modified process. In addition, the electrolysis involved in the chemical process is carried out with renewable energy.

So BioVinyl has a pretty good karma. We manufacture your BioVinyl in classic black and eleven solid colours. To mark your valuable eco-product in a promotionally effective way, you can decorate the packaging of your media with the protected BioVinyl emblem.


With ReVinyl we offer you another sustainable alternative to conventional record pressing. We manufacture ReVinyl from 100% controlled recycled material, pressed as plain black ReVinyl or as characterful and distinguished multicolored ReVinyl.

The color of the raw pressing material is composed on the basis of the available recycling batches. The color of your particular pressing remains random and varies within the run. This has the charming effect that each of your customers holds a real unique record in their hands.

Packaging concepts for vinyl records

The perfect cover is what transforms a simple vinyl disc into a real record. We have all the resources you could possibly need to create truly impressive vinyl record packaging as we manufacture all of the standard products for record sleeves and print inserts.

However, we are also in a position to offer your customers the added bonus of a product that is something really special. To achieve this, you can select from a wide range of premium products and print finishes. And for unique projects, we can offer custom designs meeting your exact specifications.

Your print products will be manufactured at the same location as your vinyl records. This avoids unnecessary shipping and allows us to shorten delivery times and improve prices. And above all, it helps us to safeguard the quality of your products and protect vulnerable printed goods from microdamage.
