We are a Premium Vinyl Service.
Since 2016, we've offered the best sounding record on the highest quality vinyl with the fastest turnaround times. We offer hi-fi STEREO lathe cut vinyl 12", 10" and 7" 180g vinyl records --- custom playlist (one-offs) or what we named "Mixtape Vinyl". We were the first in the world to offer this service and have refined the art on every level; we inspect every record before and after cutting it and our engineer masters your files for vinyl to make sure you have the best sounding record possible. We cost more than our competitors because we cut no corners (180g vinyl. real jackets, high-quality mailers, free Priority shipping) and have a seasoned engineer on the team (competitors offer 'flat cuts', we master every song for vinyl on every record).

Please note we are NOT graphic artists (we just know how to use Photoshop) and we offer custom jackets and custom labels to go with the vinyl --- if the artwork is very important to you, please hire a graphic artist and send us finished work. Otherwise, we are happy to do our best (please see listing pics for examples of what we can do).

How it works:
In a nutshell, you'll send us your digital song files (or your playlist if we are buying the songs for you) and we'll ship you a custom vinyl record**. The details on how it all works are in every listing and the FAQS.

You may order right away to keep a spot in the queue and send us your song and art files when you are ready. If you have a special project in mind that isn't offered in the listings let us know the details and we'll see what we can do!

Every order is given a link to our Hot Sheet where you will be able to check on the status of your order at any time during the process.

We ship via USPS Priority for free (International is First Class) in the highest quality mailers on the market to make sure your record arrives in perfect condition.

Thank you for visiting our ETSY store!

** We support musicians and ask that you do too! All song files must be legal downloads, no bootlegs, or pirated songs! Thank you!

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
Pricing and options

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 after reviewing the listings we have available.

We are more expensive than our competitors because our focus is on the highest possible quality; we cut no corners. Our team includes a seasoned audio engineer who masters every song for vinyl on every record (competitors offer "flat cuts") who listens to the record in real-time before it is shipped. We also only sell/offer: real jackets (not paper foldovers),180g vinyl, free PRIORITY shipping in the sturdiest mailers on the market.

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?

Yes. We offer short runs through our parent company. If you are a recording artist/record label and would like a short run, contact here on ETSY and we can discuss your options.

We also offer an On Demand service, where we fulfill orders and ship as they come in.

Please note the price is much less than a mixtape vinyl but we cannot compete with pressed vinyl prices. These are 180g and made in real-time.

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, which will also work.

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

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

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?

At this time, due to slower and less regular shipping times, we are not offering Rush Orders. We feel it is risky to pay more and not be certain it will arrive on time.
We can send you a free PDF to give the day of, announcing the gift will be arriving soon as an alternative.
We ship ALL orders via Priority (2-3 day) for free. If you prefer we expedite the shipping and are ok with the risk of it not arriving on time - please send us a message and we can discuss options.

Care instructions

DO NOT touch the record grooves, ever! If you are creating a DIY label be sure and cover the vinyl before writing on the label. ALWAYS handle the record at the edges, please do a search online for how to hold/handle vinyl records if you are at all unsure!

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.

Do you cut 45 RPM?

Yes! While 33 1/3 RPM is the standard 45 RPM can sound better. If you would like a 45 RPM record, just write to us and let us know what you have in mind. Please note: 45 RPM means a much shorter playlist. The max side length for a 12" @ 45 RPM is 14:30 per side.

Can you purchase the songs for me?

YES, we can but ONLY if the songs are available in iTunes, Amazon or Bandcamp. 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. Itunes have the best files (m4a but mp3s are totally fine).

See the listing "ADD ON SONG FILES" for details. It is very important that you send us your playlist just like the example in the listing.

I know NOTHING about vinyl or tech and am lost. Can you help me?

Yes.
Even a seasoned vinyl collector would not know how to order from us the first time so the steps are laid out for anyone who wants to simply order a custom vinyl record for themselves or as a gift.
Every listing offers a breakdown of the steps you'll need to take and we are happy to buy the songs for you if you like (please see Add On...Song Files).
We've also set it up so the default listings are standard (33 1/3 RPM) and your vinyl will play on all record players.
Because every order will take some of your time we ask that you take a few minutes to read the listing descriptions so we can better answer your specific questions. We are a full-time team dedicated to creating the best sounding custom records on the market.
