STEP TWO : Galvanic Development
Galvanic Development involves a electroplating process using an electrically charged liquid to transfer metals from a solution onto the surface of the lacquers creating a positive for each side of your record.
STEP THREE : Quality Control & Test Pressings
To start with we will only press 5 copies on white label, these are called the ‘Test Pressings’. Once we have checked to make sure the records sound clean and have no flaws our end, we will then ship them out for you to take a listen and let us know if you are happy to proceed with the final run.
STEP FOUR : Record Pressing
PVC pellets are poured into a hopper which then travel through an extruder resulting in the ‘biscuit’ or the ‘puck’ being created, this is then placed into the press along with centre labels and using around 150 tons of pressure the stampers are pressed together. After a 6-7 hours cool down period the records are now ready to be sleeved.
STEP FIVE : Shipping
Once the final run is complete we will carefully package the records ready for dispatch to you, hooray!
