Choose your colours and design wisely
Vinyl pressing in Australia offers black, customized, or transparent colours. Why not integrate it with a colourful label and cover. Ensure there’s an apparent contrast between the white text and background colours.
Find a high distinction pairing for the text on both your cover and labels for reading purposes. For instance, do not use white text on a light background or make sure the logo in your design should be within the safety zone, signified by the red lines. Everything outside these lines falls on the fold and maybe cut off.
Gives room for creativity and artwork for covers
If you have an idea of what you want but don’t know how to create it. Be easy on yourself and use templates offered by Implant, a vinyl pressing plant in Melbourne, for the best result.
If you’re requesting the best physical format to maximize your visual creativity, then that would be custom vinyl records.
Custom vinyl records have ample space for your album cover, and when you add the inner vinyl records sleeve and the vinyl jacket, then there’s so much you can customize.
You can add download cards, posters, photo books, and lyric books, but you have to remember that single jackets won’t hold them in the inner sleeve with the vinyl record.
The custom vinyl records can also be designed with anything; vinyl pressing in Melbourne prints multicoloured, monocoloured, transparent, glow in the dark, and liquid vinyl. You can also have items designed into them, like coloured water, glitters, leaves, and even blood Etc.
Test pressings are essential for a pressing plant because this is the first time audio material gets assigned to a vinyl format.
Our vinyl pressing plant ensures your record, tests the stamper’s quality, and adjusts the press settings to make sure your music sounds good as your master file on a freshly pressed record.
In this procedure, the pressing plant may experiment with different settings and throw away a few records, but once the test pressing has acquiesced, we will keep the settings and use it for the main production.

Due to the size of the sheet, the forms needed and the specialised gluing required, there are only a few places that can offer high quality, offset-printed record covers. If you find yourself in this boat, we can help you out, but only with a very limited range of printing options. When you press your vinyl record with us, however, we can offer you a complete range of covers and inserts, printed and unprinted. If you’d like to know more please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Make it easy for your fans to download the record they just bought by inserting a download card into the record’s jacket.

Although not essential, we recommend that you choose to request a test pressing. If a test pressing is selected on your order, you’ll receive three records for you and your band mates to listen to and ensure the record sounds exactly as you imagined. Without a test press, you may save some time, but by default, you’ll be approving the one and only pressing.
