Setup Fees

For every variation of a record pressed, a setup fee is required. Changing colors or styles of a record in the middle of a run requires a thorough cleaning out and flushing of the press to avoid traces of the previous colors from appearing in the next variation. There is a minimum of 50 units per color / color style / weight, with each new variation incurring a color setup fee.

$125 – PRESS SETUP FEE

Every order has a Press Setup Fee regardless of the quantity or type of records being pressed. This ensures that each and every project begins and ends with a freshly cleaned & calibrated press.

$80 – COLOR SETUP FEE

Incurred when you order any colored vinyl record option to provide a clean change of colors between units with little to no trace of the previous colors.
