Eco/Recycled Options

From our home in the Southwest, we've campaigned for over a decade to spotlight the amount of plastic floating in our oceans, polluting our beaches and killing our wildlife. We take an active stance on reducing our carbon footprint, and strive to provide environmentally-conscious vinyl packaging solutions wherever possible.

As much as there is finally a growing movement to protect our planet, from a consumer perspective our industry is sadly yet to catch up with that trend. Environmentally sourced materials such as FCS-certified boards cost comparatively more to produce, and thus carry a premium from suppliers, which in turn can make eco-friendly solutions less viable to the consumer.

We use a range of eco-suppliers, who are continually developing new and exciting products that have a positive net contribution to our environment. Due to this constant evolution, we highly recommend contacting us directly to find out what additional eco/recycled materials we can source for your release.

Eco-mix Recycled Colour Vinyl - Lucky Dip

Comprised of recycled vinyl compounds, this vinyl colour option can end up being a completely unique colour or effect. Compounds might be combined to create a marble-esque look, other times the pellets are mixed to produce a completely original colour.

Ecomix vinyl has been created as part of the push towards zero waste at the vinyl pressing plant, and are priced the same as black vinyl records which makes them extra attractive to anyone conscious of their environmental footprint. Ecomix vinyl provides a unique and appealing conversation point, and a great opportunity for your community to engage around your releases.

This is truly a random/lucky dip effect; we cannot control the colour or effect, or pre-empt how the records will look except that they won't be plain black. You may receive an entire run of all one colour, or you may receive several different colour variants. It’s a gamble, but it's also eco-friendly, cost effective and unique to boot.

Interested? Please get in touch below, or choose your packaging options and let us know in the comments that you'd like ecomix instead of black vinyl.

Product Options

Add style, durability and attention to detail, while increasing the value of your records.

You can select between these options when making an enquiry or placing an order above.

Test Pressings

Test pressings are the first records created from the metalwork, used to evaluate the quality, volume levels and listen for any untoward pops, clicks or excessive sound artefacts before mass production begins. We always recommend requesting test pressings with your order and listening carefully on a number of different turntables before approving production of the main run.

Make your mark on your records by engraving your artist, label or company name into the runout groove.
