How it Works

Step One / Mastering & Cutting

At Press On Vinyl we understand how important the audio quality of your record is to you and your fans.

We can help guide you through the process to ensure your audio files are ready to hit the lathe (see our FAQ). If you would like us to handle the audio mastering for you, then our team of highly experienced engineers will make sure your music works perfectly on the vinyl format.

We perform all our master cuts using the time-proven, best methods on quality lacquer disks. Our highly skilled engineers will ensure your master disk is cut perfectly through our high end analogue chain and cutting lathe.

Step Two / Metalwork

From your master lacquer disks we will produce a quality set of stampers that are accurately formed for our pressing machines. Our high spec stamper labratory has the latest cutting-edge technology ensuring the highest standards of quality control at every stage of the process.

Step Three / Press On

We searched the industry for the best solution for the pressing process.

Our revolutionary new machines produce consistent quality records with lower energy consumption. Powered by a bespoke steam and cooling system, the whole operation is designed to deliver the best precision manufacturing in the industry.

Our pressing operators have pride in every record they press and take time to perform quality checks at every stage.

We can produce anything from traditional black records through to specialist splatter and picture disks (coming soon).

However creative you want to be with your disk design, our team will find a solution.

Finally / Printing & Packaging

Using the highest standard printing techniques we ensure your centre labels and sleeves look exactly how you want them.

We offer everything from disco bags to triple gatefolds and everything in between. (check out our templates section here).

With a wide variety of finishes available we make sure that your art looks as good as it sounds!

What is Pre Press? Pre Press refers to everything that happens to make sure a job is correctly prepared for printing.

This is when you catch the errors that could hold up the job on press and avoid potential unexpected studio costs that are not factored.

For trouble-free printing down the line, it is important to get your design in the best shape possible before upload.

Please follow the Pre-press guidelines below before sending us your artwork.

How to prepare your files:

1. Although we can except all manner of file formats, the preferred type is a print ready PDF file.

2. Bleed allowance, extend the design 3mm past all trimmed edges.

3. Spell check entire document. Correct any errors in grammar and punctuation.

4. All glued areas must be free from print. Please add white areas where indicated on the template.

5. Check that important content is well within trimmed edges.

6. Check and edit colours.

7. Check that process colours, including all placed images, are CMYK (not RGB).

8. Check that spot colours are converted to CMYK or, if desired, carefully defined and applied as spot.

9. Delete all unused colour swatches.

10. Make sure all type is only 100% black. (C=0%, M=0%, Y=0% and K=100%).

11. Otherwise, large areas of black should be “rich black”, which is Cyan 60%, Magenta 40%, Yellow 40% and Black 100%.

12. Make sure all required fonts are correctly embedded, or converted to outlines.

13. If native and component files are supplied please ensure that all linked graphics and fonts are provided.

14. Tidy by deleting unused elements on the pasteboard, and empty boxes.

15. It is critical that your artwork is dropped in to an approved template. Please contact cad@delga.co.uk to obtain the correct drawing.

16. Make sure that the template layer only contains template elements and is set to overprint the design.

17. Template is set as spot colours with a trim box applied to the outer edges (flat size).

18. Artwork layer only contains artwork.

19. All embellishments should be set to overprint and named as the finish, i.e. “SPOT GLOSS UV”, EMBOSS” and “FOIL”.

20. Bar codes should be black only, set up as a vector and housed inside a white box.

21. Overall ink coverage, Digital: 280% and Litho: 320%.

22. Use overprint preview to ensure all knocked out and overprinted elements are set up correctly.
