About

Handcrafted from recycled album art covers, coasters with warped vinyl bowl.

The Album Art Cover Coasters are the awesome concept of using the album cover from tired old vinyl records and turning them into an eye catching nine piece puzzle disguised as album cover coasters. When was the last time you held a coaster and you immediately flashed back to when you were a young hip kid? When was the last time you gave a gift to your dad and you immediately became the "golden' child". Enough about the wonders of our Recycled Album Art Cover Coasters. Let's get down to how in the world the amazing coaster/puzzle sets are created.

To start with, we go through our collection. Okay we have spent our fair share of time at auctions and garage sales to build up an amazing collection of scratched and warped records. We select a batch of memories, no I mean albums. Next, we take them to the cutting floor. Hubby has his way with them, slicing, gluing and sanding them to perfection. Hubby and I take turns on who gets to caress the lovelies and put on their cute little felt or cork feet and the four layers of glossy finish. The final step is sliding the little beauties in the curing racks, just waiting for their trip to...somewhere. Boy, I wish I could go to everywhere our babies have been shipped to!

Frequently asked questions

We love working with you on creating the perfect way to display the record album. Mary is creative and Terry is a master craftsman that understands Mary's wacky ideas!

Care instructions

Recycled Album Art Coasters are heat tolerant such as a cup of coffee - but not to the point of handling items fresh from an oven.
To clean the coasters and warped record bowl, wipe with a damp cleaning cloth.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Due to the nature of packaging, we have yet found a way to gift wrap the coaster sets. But we will include a gift tag to the package.

Here's best way we have found to pack the 9 wood based coasters and warped record bowl: The coasters are placed in the bottom of a 12"x 12" box. Hubby places bubble wrap and cardboard spaces to hold them in place. The record bowl is placed in a 11"x 11" box filled with the bowl and packing peanuts. This box is secured with bubble wrap and placed on top of the coasters.

So, when your coaster set arrives, be sure to look all the way through the package. We've had a few customers that stopped with the inner box and wondered where their coasters were at.

Wholesale availability

To ensure that our handcrafted items are affordable, we have chosen to price are items with very little mark up. Our goal is to create unique music related items to help preserve the memories so many associate with music.
