    Vinyl pressing could not be easier

    Hey,
    you ever wanted to put out your bands music on vinyl and/or you're dissapointed with the process of releasing your last vinyl. Check out xvinylx.com!! Order your pressing in 12 easy steps... it is a sister project from people running Damage Done Records / Two Shovels Productions..

    this is more useful for European bands, but they also send packages anywhere in the world...
    Take the time. Don't be blind. You will find. An open mind. There's no need for you to tell me what I've done wrong. I can, can see, all this contradiction around me. I just, just want, I want to be free. Don't question my actions. I never said that I was flawless

    it doesn't work. when I put in 500 records, a pop up window appears and tells me the minimum order is 250...

    I'm curious if there was a new pressing plant behind this, or are they just pressing the records at that czech pressing plant -i forgot it's name-, and just put a profit margin on it?
    I imagine setting up a new pressing plant is really pricy, and I can't see somebody in hardcore in the EU has the money to invest in this, even though I know it's not impossible, it would just seem strange to me - it probably is a really small market with little demand.

    i believe that this is using the old plant (Gramofonove Zavody) but they may have some special contract (GZ is always really happy to have a returning customer).. also, there was some bad communication with GZ in the past, so they may just make the whole process easier and quicker..
    i believe there is no other pressing plant than GZ in Europe that could put out custom shaped and colored vinyl, but i may be wrong on this one

    btw I'm using Firefox and no problem with placing 500 there.. if i put 100 pieces i get the message, of course..

    there's one in britain, and there's one in germany, and both of them do all kinds of stuff.

    So I was right then, and they are pressing the vinyl at GZ.

    I'm using IE 7 (at work this is the only browser allowed). Did you do the website?

    oh, i didn't know about that. it has been many years since my brother was putting out some record..

    i'm not sure about that but i think you're right.. i just can't imagine bunch of punx running a pressing plant (nota bene when there is notoriously known GZ)

    no, i just though it might be useful resource.. you're right about IE7 issue.. they have a banner displayed in IE6 ("get a modern browser") and it works fine in IE8, but not in IE7...
