Record Industry offers a wide variety of printing and packaging possibilities.
We print labels as standard in two different sizes, 100 mm for 12"/10" and 85 mm for 7". At an extra charge we can also print 75 mm labels (for 12" and 10" only). We advise that artwork for labels is supplied in CMYK as it gives the best result (for the best price) - pantone colours on labels tend to change colour due to the heat they are exposed to.
You can choose to pack your order in a sleeve printed by us in any way you like. Embossing, special die-cuts, special finishes or foils—it's all possible. The standard board we use is a GC1 quality, double white and very suitable for backside board printing too. But other types of board with a grey or brown back side or a kraft board are available as well.
With folding and gluing machines for sleeves in house, we can manufacture nearly any type of sleeve, in 7", 10" and 12" size. We can also offer triple gatefolds on 10” and 12” size and “normal” 7” and 10” gatefolds.
Printing special inserts (unique numbered download cards), posters, booklets or stickers is also part of our service.
Sometimes your release needs extra special packaging to give it more value. We are happy to advise you about the possibilities. This can include a 'tip-on' sleeve, made of extra thick board (1 mm thick) with the printed sheet glued on it by hand, just like they did in the old days. Or a custom-made box, for which many variations are possible, including tailor-made shipping cartons.
