Mixtape on Vinyl

Welcome to our Etsy store!

We offer vinyl lovers and enthusiasts a way to put their best playlists on the highest quality 180g 12", 10" or 7" hi-fi stereo vinyl record. Each record ships with a poly-paper sleeve, a plain white label and choice of plain jacket unless you also order customized labels and/or jackets. See our store for the custom label and custom jacket options - sold separately.

Please read through our FAQs/ guidelines and listings you are interested in prior to your purchase so you are familiar with the process before you begin!

It is very simple: you choose your vinyl, you upload your songs (or send us your song list), you choose label option and style of jacket and viola! you will receive a playable vinyl "master" (or "one off") of your own creation.

Your first step is to add up the running time of your playlist (in minutes and seconds), determine which songs go in what order per side and then order the right vinyl size. Here is our Running Time Calculator to help: https://www.grunsports.com/utils/recordCalc/

Please see individual listings for specific details.

Each record is 180g vinyl cut on a lathe in real time (not pressed). Please see our reviews regarding the sound quality. Your record will last for several hundred plays over many years, even decades, with proper care.

After you purchase:
Once you buy, your receipt lists the steps on how to name, zip and upload your song files to our Dropbox. If you would like us to buy the songs for you, please see the listing "Itunes Song Files".

Contact us if you need a rush order and let us know where you are located. Rush orders are billed an additional $30-$50.

Thank you for visiting our Etsy store!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Every order is a custom product but if you have any special requests or specific questions regarding a short run or one off do not hesitate to contact us here on Etsy. We offer custom labels and jackets in our store for those who purchase a custom vinyl record.

If you would like us to make a custom label or jacket for you and you have not purchased a record from us, please send us a Custom Order Request, let us know what you have in mind and we will get back to you shortly.

What exactly is a lathe cut record and do they sound good?

Every record that is made (pressed) is first lathe cut as a "master" and the short and easy answer is: we simply offer a lathe cut record as a final product. We do not press records. Please see our reviews re: sound quality.

My playlist exceeds your MAX side length limit, what are my options?

Consider ordering a double record set if you don't want to shorten your playlist.

I make my own music and would like to purchase a short run (1-20) Can you do this and is there a price difference?

If you are a recording artist or a label and have the direct rights to your music feel free to order one of the short runs we offer here on ETSY OR if you would like a shorter/longer run then contact us here and we can discuss your options.

What files do you accept? What sounds best?

1) Audio Formats we accept:

Digital files:

iTunes has the best sounding files for our vinyl service.
.m4a is the filetype.

Apple Music files will not work. Any file that ends in m4p is copy-protected - please make sure your files DO NOT END IN m4p.

Amazon and Google Play will sell you .mp3 files*.
.mp3 is much lower quality that .m4a

Even better that .m4a files are un-compressed files like:
.wav
.aif
Or flac

HOWEVER; please DO NOT convert mp3 or m4a files to .wav, .aif or flac. The conversion will NOT improve the sound of your mp3 or m4a files.

*If all you have is .mp3 files than you can send them and we will cut them to vinyl.

If you would like us to buy the songs for you please see the listing "Itunes Song Files" in our store.

I just found you and need it really fast! Is this possible?

We do offer a rush service for $30-$50 depending upon when you need it and the status of the queue at the time of your order. Expedited shipping is an additional cost. Please write to us on Etsy letting us know where you are, what you would like to order and we will get back to you ASAP.

Please note:
The Rush Fee is for us to cut and ship your record before the turn around date and Expedited Shipping is what USPS
charges. Otherwise, we always ship via USPS Priority (with tracking) which is 2-3 days (US) and varies for international.

We can only guarantee the Ship By date.

Care instructions

Make sure and store your vinyl properly and that your record player needle is clean. If you have an automatic record player make sure and put it on manual when playing your custom vinyl record.

What is the difference between a sleeve and a jacket?

Many people confuse the SLEEVE for the JACKET. The sleeve slips over the vinyl and into the outer jacket.

Anatomy of a record: vinyl (record) label (center "sticker") sleeve and jacket.

I don't know the difference between 33 1/3 and 45 RPM. What should I choose?

Most record players play both 33 1/3 and 45 RPM. Most people cannot hear the difference between 33 1/3 and 45 RPM. To learn more please read this great blog on
the differences: https://blog.electrohome.com/vinyl-record-speeds-33-45-78-mean

If you can't decide or don't know what player it will be played on then order the 33 1/3RPM which is most standard.

Can you purchase the songs for me?

YES, we can but ONLY if the songs are available in iTunes. You will want to make sure they are before sending us your playlist. You don't need to have Itunes account to check the availability of the songs.

See the listing "Itunes Song Files" for details. It is very important that you send us your playlist just like the example in the listing.
