To get you pressing underway:

- We need an audio source from you. For this, uncompressed, lossless file formats are ideal. High resolution .wav files are what we recommend to make you a great sounding record.

- We can make you a lacquer master or direct metal master (DMM). This is a on-time process that isn't needed for reorders. You can supply your own if you wish.

- The lacquer master or DMM is made into a pressing stamper for producing your vinyl records. The stampers we provide are good for making 1000 records or more.
