RECORD INDUSTRY - SINCE 1958
18 August 2021

Vacatures bij de leukste fabriek van Nederland!

Record Industry is een grammofoonplatenperserij, gevestigd in Haarlem. Wij zijn een van de grootste platenperserijen ter wereld en persen voor platenmaatschappijen en artiesten uit binnen- en buitenland. Klassieke muziek, pop, rock en dance, van Mozart tot Lady Gaga, diverse muziekstijlen en product van een breed scala aan artiesten rolt hier van de band. Wat ons bijzonder maakt ten opzichte van andere vinylproducenten, is dat we alles onder één dak hebben; we verwerken de order, snijden het audio, galvaniseren de persmallen, persen de platen, drukken en plakvouwen de hoezen en verpakken het product. We hebben zelfs onze eigen opnamestudio in het pand. Een voetbalveld groot aan vinylproductie waar we met een team van bijna 100 collega's dit jaar ongeveer 10 miljoen platen verwachten te persen en verpakken. In de perserij staan 32 machines om gedurende 16 uur per werkdag zo'n veertig- tot vijftigduizend platen te persen.

Record Store Day announce new June date for 2021 event

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.
