* time lengths must match with tracklist form *

5. Recommendations:

* do not exceed maximum recommended length to achieve best sound quality: 7” @45rpm (5 min), 10” @33rpm (13.5 min) and 12” @33rpm (19.5 min) *

* 7” @33rpm is the worst posible cut option, strongly recommended  @45rpm *

* black standard vinyl 140g has the best audio quality and fidelity *

* coloured vinyl may cause a higher noise level and/or clicks in the lead-in and lead-out grooves or on quiet parts of the recording *

* order at least 300g with 3mm spine outer sleeve. The heavier the outer material is, the less risk there is of the cover getting damaged or bent*

*order a poly-lined inner sleeve to prevent dust and keep the record protected *

* choose a transparent base colour with solid o black speckles when ordering a splatter vinyl  for maximum effect *

* always contact us if you are not sure about the end results of colours or any other specifications *
