PLAYING TIMES

Playing times
*Depending on the quality of your master it might be possible to exceed durations stated above.

REPRESS

We keep your stampers for up to two years for reproductions. This way you will save the cutting cost of your order, and we ensure to reach the same quality as the original production.

*We only reproduce from our own stampers.

TEST PRESS

We are using top of the line machinery, so if you deliver an appropriate vinyl master, there should be no issues regarding the quality. Nevertheless, this is a last step before the production and we strongly advise every client to order and carefully inspect test pressings, give us feedback so we can jointly press great sounding vinyl records.

33 OR 45 RPM?

RPM is an abbreviation for “revolutions/rounds per minute”. This refers to the playback speed and directly affects the length of the record. Please consult your mastering engineer for choosing the speed that is the most suitable for your vinyl project.

COPYRIGHT BUREAU

Every release needs to be registered at your countries copyright bureau. We require that your respective copyright bureau sends us the approval of your music before we start production. In Scandinavia, you need to contact NCB (Nordisk Copyright Bureau) and choose RPM Records as your manufacturer.

TIP: If some of the records produced are to be used as promos and giveaways, let your copyright bureau know so they wont charge you for these copies.

COLOUR RECORDS

We offer standard black, solid colour or swirl pressings without compromising the sound quality. In comparison to other pressing plants, we approach and mix colours like paint, hence, we can not produce split or splatter records, but we have an in-house colour expert for developing perfect colour blends. There are some limitations in how smoothly we can transition from colour-to-colour. And it is useful to keep in mind, that small orders will have parts of transitional colours if the colour transition fee has not been included.
