Vinyl sales are up, and Disc Makers cut the cost to manufacture by 35%
FACT #1: Revenues from US vinyl records grew 17% to $1.2 billion last year and accounted for 71% of physical format revenues. FACT #2: Physical music sales at the merch table remain a top source of revenue source for many musicians.
So it was particularly exciting when I saw that Disc Makers cut the cost to manufacture 100 vinyl LPs by 35% from $1999 to an all-time low of $1,299 for a standard black vinyl pressing, full-color or black & white LP labels, a full-color Jacket w/spine, and shrinkwrapping. It’s billed as a limited-time offer.
I did a quick search and could not find a better price for all of this, and no, Disc Makers did NOT pay for this post.
