Working with Rob was absolutely wonderful super helpful. He sent me a rough print before hand and it was perfect. Shipping was extremely quick. Whole process was smooth. The product itself in person was so much better then the rough print. Even sent the original cover for the vinyl. My dad collects picture vinyls, so now he has one personalized for him. 10000/10 would definitely order again!

Great quality and customer service. The seller went above and beyond by upgrading shipping at no additional cost to make sure my order arrived on time!

I got my record as a anniversary gift for my boyfriend and I absolutely love it! The seller was so great to work with and helped me when I privately messaged them. There was a problem with my purchase but once I talked to the seller it got resolved pretty fast. I would 100% buy again and recommend to anyone! The purchase, shipping, and my item being made were pretty fast in a timely manner!!

Rob was literally the nicest person ever. I felt like a pain trying to pick the perfect record and he helped me every step of the way to make sure it was perfect. I really appreciate the amount he cares for customers and I would definitely buy again from him!

I absolutely loved how it turned out! The quality was great, the seller was extremely helpful, very responsive and made sure I got exactly what I wanted! He worked hard to make sure it was exactly how I wanted it and I couldn’t recommend enough!

The Perfect packaging and the PERFECT gift ever made. As I was talking to the designer, he met every detail I wanted made for this Record Collage. My father loved it! I would recommend highly for anyone who knows someone who loves RECORDS. This gift met my expectations.

Rob is just fantastic to work with. Superseded my expectations and the quality in which the product made is unreal. I presented this to a client, and it just has that jaw-dropping effect. Furthermore, he went above and beyond and added my clients first dance to the Center of the vinyl. He customized and went the extra step. Shipping time is punctual. -DJAllStar

Seller was great to work with and delivered such an amazing record that my fiancé absolutely loved! He even mocked up the album title for me since he didn’t actually have the artist I requested. Will buy from here again!!
Alright Alright Alright - Here comes our Etsy Story!
After purchasing a Photo Record Collage online then having the photos detach from the record within 2 weeks, we decided to pick apart the process. While the concept was spot on for anyone interested in combining the love for Music, Art, and Photography, the final product was not so much (Our Opinion only). We figured maybe it was just a flaw, so we bought another from a different company. The pictures stayed on but it was printed in 2 halves on what appeared to be a printer running low on ink and not on Photo Paper.
Owning a business of any kind during the Pandemic, just flat out sucked (non-sugar coated version). Since we are an Event Company with multiple service offerings, we felt it from all angles, and we almost didn't make it. Like many who did, we had to venture out of our comfort zone, hit the books/Internet, educate ourselves/take courses, and simply roll up our sleeves and try new things, as survival mode was in full effect.
With over 20,000+ Vinyl records of all sizes, shapes, colors, and conditions along with a Discogs Record store, we decided to try our hands at these Collages. We already knew what some of the major flaws were, and where areas of improvement needed to be applied, so why not. Hence the whole idea of Etsy - everyday people who are super creative, doing some amazing things, and some have even gone Full Time. We spent over 6 months just doing straight R&D for Commercial products and Industry standards. We "Stopped, Collaborated, and Listened" to Photographers, Designers, and even an inventor who wanted to make us a Square Record. We passed on that as adding an open flame to these is very toxic. Plus a Square Record is just weird to me.
Our version of a Photo Record Collage - We noticed there were no Pie style designs out there, so that was our first hurdle and is our top seller outside of the Etsy World. Everyone seemed to be using the same designs with a slight modification to each. We also add the Original Jacket and Inner Sleeve if available. If not, we will add a Generic jacket & sleeve with Poly Protector. Since we already owned a Wide Format printer, we used this to print a single photo versus multiple photos cut and shaped with Gloss, then adhered to fit a 12" Record. The adhesive that we went with is both Photo Safe and PVC friendly, so we didn't run the risk of putting a toxic chemical in your house (unlike most of the other sellers online were using). It had to be super strong, and not get anyone sick. We tested each and every phase multiple times, for months. I am pretty sure we went through 2 full reams of Pro Luster photo paper and more Lucia Pro Ink than I ever imagined - before our very 1st product was completed. If you are bored of staring at the photo, flip it over and throw it on your Record Player to hear how it sounds. While most of these ARE playable on one side, they AREN'T those NM gems that collectors have been searching all ends of the Earth for. The Jackets may be though, but we are not in the Jacket collecting business, and we have no idea which holds value.
Going forward - Today 4/23/2021 we finally Published some of the Collages, Opened the Etsy Store, and we are still learning something new from each one created. These are personal keepsakes, so we want to ensure both quality & durability are covered before they leave the shop. We still have a few more 12" designs to upload, and we will have about 6 different designs for the 7" records as well. Each one of those will come with the Spindle Adapter that can be snapped in for playing or mounting on your wall.
I know I wanted to say more, but you may have aged a few years by now after reading this. The "Fragile" sticker that comes on your mailer is not Italian BTW. I am sure this will be updated as soon as my wife reads it, with fewer music references and more important info - but it was fun typing it up.
Thanks in advance for stopping by our GrandEvents LLC Etsy store! Every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end....Yeah....

Frequently asked questions
Can the Records be played?
Yes & No. The side the Photo Collage is on can't be played. The opposite side can be played. While these can be played, they are not those highly sought-after Collector grade Records. Some may skip and have surface noise, but all of them play.
Custom and personalized orders
No. We do not copy any music to our Records. The Records we use are the Records you would find at a local Record Store. We are not a Recording Studio.
