HOW DO I SUBMIT MY AUDIO TRACKS?
There are two ways to submit your tracks
1) Select the "Upload Songs + Artwork" button on the product page.
Upload your songs then head to checkout.
This method has a 200mb per file limit.
2) Once you have paid for your record you can also submit your audio files and track listing/order of appearance (text edit file or word doc) for both A and B sides via Dropbox, Google Drive or Wetransfer.
Please share with firstname.lastname@example.org
*Very important* Please ensure your submission folder is titled with your first and last name so we can match the correct tracks with each order.
Are the records literally 'hand cut'?
Each record is cut individually, in real time. Using a lathe diamond stylus guided by hand.
If you would like to see a demo of the record cutting process check out the Small Run facebook page for some samples.
What is the quality like?
With audio files that have been mastered for vinyl the audio quality is generally indistinguishable from your every day vinyl record.
However due to the nature of the manual cutting process each record may have slight variations and subtle inconsistencies though this is what's to love about this unique hand cut process.
The process of transferring from a digital format to an analog disc will never be 1:1. So please keep this in mind when comparing the two.
Unfortunately we cannot guarantee the quality for tracks that have not been mastered for vinyl. Although we always endeavour to cut the best record each time.
Do you print the centre labels?
Small Run offers centre labels printing with all records. To download the Centre Label Template please go to the Template link in the footer or click here.
If you would prefer to customise them yourself or leave them blank please let me know and I am happy to provide the sticker labels separately on A4 sheets so that you can print on them yourself.
Do you print covers or sell cardboard sleeves?
We sell plain White, Kraft and Black cardboard outer sleeves for our 12" records. These can be added to your record on checkout.
Small Run now also offers two styles of cover printing for our single 12" records.
This is our own unique design, inspired by Japanese Obi Publishing.
This style has a full front cover print with a small strip that wraps around the back of the record (which is housed in a plain white card sleeve), perfect for track-list and/or other info.
Examples can be seen on the product page.
Fully custom pocketed sleeve (full front and back). Turnaround for this option is approx. 4-6 weeks.
PAYMENT AND POSTAGE
What is the turn around / how long will my order take?
The lathe machine cuts in realtime, so turn around factors in the length of the record, the number of records, plus set up time, delivery and workload.
How can I pay?
Payment for one off records and our record packs is through Shopify via secure credit card payment or PayPal.
If you would prefer to pay in cash or via direct bank deposit, please contact email@example.com to arrange this.
All orders must be paid in full before being shipped out.
Can I pick up my records and pay cash?
Unfortunately pickup is not available at this point.
How much is postage/will you ship internationally?
Orders can be shipped both within Australia and internationally.
All orders are sent via Australia post and costs vary based on size and weight of you order.
If you would like a postage cost prior to ordering please email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will happy get you a quote. (As a rough guide, 1 x 10" or 12" costs approx $12.00 to send within Australia.)
