FUNDING A CAMPAIGN

When will I get the record I backed?

  • Crowdfunded Project
    • It depends on if and when the campaign hits its goal. If the campaign is successful - it'll go into production, which can take 6 to 10 weeks. Once the production is getting ready to wrap up - we'll let you know via email. You'll receive 1 final email within a week after production which will include the shipping and tracking information.
  • Pre-Ordered Record
    • Pre-ordered records are usually in the production process. The page will have an "expected completion date" and you can expect to receive an email with shipping details within a week of that date. 

When will I be charged?

  • Crowdfunded Project
    • You will only be charged if the campaign successfully hits its goal. At that time - all of the backers will be charged and the record will move into production. 
  • Pre-Ordered Record
    • Pre-ordered records are usually already in the production process - this means they're getting made no matter what. You'll be charged at the time of pre-ordering. 

What happens if the crowdfunding goal isn't met?

  • Crowdfunded Project
    • Your card will never be charged. Unfortunately this specific campaign won't be getting pressed to vinyl.
  • Pre-Ordered Record
    • Pre-orders don't go through the crowdfunding process. You will always get pre-ordered records. 

STARTING A CAMPAIGN

what's being there record's twist on crowdfunding?

  • We specialize in making vinyl and that's all we do! We get that getting your music to vinyl can be time consuming and cost a lot of money. We wanted to make a platform that could help alleviate those two things so you can focus on making more great music.

What do i need to start?

  •  All you need is the album artwork and music that's going on the record. Simple as that.

what if i want you to press my record but don't want to crowdfund it?

  • If you have the money to flat-out pay for the batch of records, we'll gladly handle all the steps to make it happen. We'd also love to accept pre-orders for no charge while the records are being made. 

how much will my record sell for?

  • That's up to you! We will send you a quote for how much it will cost per record - you can choose any price over the base cost. 

How much will i make after a SUCCESSFUL campaign?

  • It depends on how much you set the price for. When we give you a quote, it will say how much it cost per record - you can plug and chug some numbers to find a royalty that you're happy with. 

Example: If we're making 300 records and they cost $10 apiece and you decide to sell them for $15 - you'll make $5 in profit per record. That means $1500 for you!

what if we have a successful campaign and want to do another batch? 

  • The price will be significantly cheaper. The most capital-intensive part of the process is making the metal stamper molds, which are completely reusable for up to 1,000 records. 
  • We encourage you to start small. You can always come back for a discounted second batch!

what's the difference between crowdfunding & pre-ordering?

  • Crowdfunding a records means that it will go into production only if you hit your goal. Pre-ordering records means that the records have been paid for upfront and are already in the production process. 

how will the records get to the fans that backed my campaign? 

  • We will drop-ship every record into it's own box and ship it to every member who backed the campaign. If you want the entire batched shipped directly to you - we can do that too.

Can I personally buy a few to sell at shows and stuff like that?

  • Absolutely - we'll sell you as many as you want as the base cost. Then you can sell them at shows, hand out promo copies or even give one to mom.
