HOW TO ORDER


GENERAL SPECIFICS for AUDIO - (for best possible vinyl sound)


Since outer half of 12" LP record offers best sound please arrange tracks so your most important brightest loudest songs go first for each side. Do your best to arrange tracks so each side comes out fairly equal and under the time slot allowed per side. Use at least one second silence at start and end of each song. Be sure to tag your indexed tracks with letter/number in front of each song (A1, A2, B1, etc.) so we know proper order to each side. In an email please give us those listings (song/artist) along with time per track in proper format so we can copy and paste to help create optional custom round record labels and back side sleeve if need be. PLEASE WARN US OF ANY SURPRISES or abnormal content such as longer than normal pause or loud sudden transients.

 

GENERAL SPECIFICS for ARTWORK - (round center labels, sleeve jacket cover and card insert)


SLEEVE ARTWORK - send us SQUARE image for front and back side (jpeg, tiff, pdf, PSE layered - 400 dpi or so). No bleed is required as we'll add that ourselves. If your image is not square (equal on all sides) we'll either crop or add colored borders or do both to create a square. Optional card sleeve insert image should also be square.


LABEL ARTWORK - send us 3.8" round image for side A and B (jpeg, tiff, pdf, PSE layered - 400 dpi or so). No bleed or die lines are required but keep in mind there will be a small 1/4" center hole. Keep text away from edges at least 1/8" as about 1/16" will be cropped away on perimeter. If doing large hole label for 7" jukebox record figure 1.5" actual center hole with inward bleed to 1.3" hole.
