19-10 RSD Deadlines and Holidays coming up

Dear Customer,

The uncertain but also crazy and busy times we are currently living in, require a lot of flexibility from everyone. Due to an enormous increase in the demand for vinyl, combined with absent colleagues who have to stay home because of Covid-19 related issues, our production times are longer than you are used to. We therefore had to bring forward our RSD deadline as well.

If you're planning releases for Record Store Day (taking place on April 17th 2021), please place your orders in time. We are aiming to supply the distributors first week of April instead of one week prior to Record Store Day. Make sure we have audio and testing order with us in week 47 (16 - 20 November 2020) and artwork & finished order in week 52 (21 - 24 December 2020). Please note that production times of all other orders and re-orders you plan to release around April 2021, may also be influenced by this.

Coloured Vinyl Stools

Music Venues in the Netherlands are allowed to open their doors for live music and audience, but only for a very limited amount of people and under very strict conditions. Sitting down, no dancing, no singing, no fun 😕 but better than nothing at all. Some of them came up with very creative ideas to keep the audience on a safe distance from each other, these lovely stools from Patronaat Haarlem and Doornroosje are a great example for which we supplied the vinyl.

The backside of printing on reversed board

We're often asked if it's possible to print inner sleeves, jackets or inserts on the reverse/uncoated side of the board or paper. The answer to this is, YES this option is available! It actually gives a very nice effect to your design. But if you choose to print on the uncoated side of the board it is good to be aware of the following.

Brad Mehldau - Suite : April 2020

Please take a few minutes and listen to Mr Brad Mehldau and buy this record (proudly manufactured by Record Industry), it's for a very good cause.

While sheltering at home with his family during the COVID-19 pandemic, Brad Mehldau wrote 12 new songs about what he was experiencing; he was able to record them safely in a studio, along with tunes by Neil Young, Billy Joel, and Jerome Kern that mean a great deal to him, for a new album, 'Suite: April 2020': http://smarturl.it/suiteapril2020

A 180-gram deluxe vinyl edition, out today and available for $100 exclusively from the Nonesuch Store, Bandcamp, and Discogs, is limited to 1,000 numbered units, signed by Brad; a minimum of $90 from each sale will be donated to the Jazz Foundation of America's COVID-19 Musician's Emergency Fund (after distribution fees). A portion of the proceeds from the digital album, out now, and the standard albums, due in September, also goes to the fund.

Here he introduces the project and performs the album track 'remembering before all this.
