Comes in 10 inch and 7 inch, but far more economical to increase your record size than to produce two smaller format records. Contact us to discuss the right solution.
Triple Gatefold — 12 inch only
Triple record? No way! When you’ve created stacks of music, our triple gatefolds are the perfect way to house it all.
Can be used to hold 3 records, 2 records and a booklet, 1 records and 2 booklets, 1 record and 1 booklet, or even just 1 record.
7″ Printed Sleeve
Much like our printed sleeves for our 12 and 10 inch custom vinyl records but without the spine and gusset.
Our 7″ Printed Sleeves are the perfect companion for your smaller vinyl release.
Printed Inner Sleeve
If fittng everything on your artwork is a struggle, our printed inner sleeves allow you to create an extra print area.
Sliding flawlessly in and out of any of our covers, and printed on either gloss or uncoated stock at approximately 115 gsm, it can be that extra something for your release.
We can also supply the printed inner with a protective plastic inner bag, which protects your record from any paper dust from the printing/construction process.
Inner Sleeves / Outer Sleeves
Don’t want a printed inner or outer sleeve? No problem. Our extensive range of unprinted packaging can be used for both.
Most are available in white and black, with and without holes and even with or without plastic linings.
If there’s something you’re particularly after, let us know, we’ll likely carry it.
Inserts / booklets
Let’s accompany your vinyl project with something special.
Whether it’s a lyric sheet or a full-colour, glossy booklet, we’ll print just about anything to insert into your custom vinyl covers.
Stocks / Weights
Extra weight makes for sturdier sleeves that gives your record a superb-quality, robust feel.
Side note: we don’t offer recycled stock options as we’re yet to find one compatible with certain processes involved. For a recycled look and feel, we’ll print on the uncoated, reverse side of our standard card stock.
Matt / Gloss Cello
This one’s the most common and effective of the embellishments on our vinyl covers. The cello itself is a super-lightweight film that laminates the cover.
Another embellishment used for producing outstanding effects on your vinyl covers. A block is used to “push-out” sections of your artwork, creating a raised effect that can be felt to the touch.
Something to check with our vinyl experts: limitations apply to the block size and positioning. Get in touch.
Add bling to your vinyl project — without breaking the bank. Much like embossing (see above), a block is used to transfer foil onto your artwork.
We carry gold and silver foil as standard, but we’ll source hundreds of different colours and effects. If you’re after something particular, our custom vinyl experts will help.
For an effect that can cover your entire sleeve without the limitation of blocks, spot UV can be used to highlight sections of artwork or text.
It’s a high-gloss effect that can only be seen when viewing your artwork from a certain angle.
For best results, spot UV must be overlayed on a matt cello.
Download cards are a great way to share digital versions of your tracks with fans, clients or customers.
Beautifully printed cards that are available in a range of stocks and finishes. Each card is printed with a unique code, that when entered at our downloadcards.com.au domain gives the user access to a zip file that can contain anything you like: music, videos, pictures — basically anything digital can be shared.
Is your vinyl release a limited edition? We can number each cover individually with a gold or silver stamp or a laser serial number.
It’s a great way to give your fans a unique vinyl release.
Looking to releases your back catalogue on vinyl? Bundling them as a box set is a great way to increase sales all the while creating a highly desirable product for your customers.

Our range isn’t limited to what you see on this page.

We love the unusual, so let’s create your special vinyl project together.
Plan your vinyl pressing
While vinyl record pressing Australia is significantly expanding the amount of pressing plants, here is where things get trickier. Do you want your music pressed on 12″ standard weight vinyl? or do you need a 7″ record pressed? What about the 180-gram studier or heavier record?
- A 12″ record holds about 22 minutes worth of music on each side. Mainly reserved for full-length albums.
- A 12″ record usually whirls at 33-1/3 RPM but can also spin at 45 RPM to reach higher musical fidelity.
- 7″ record contains about four and a half minutes of music on each side and is best suited for single albums.
- 7″ vinyl record usually spins at just 45 RPM.
Vinyl record pressing comes in different colours, and your artwork is modified and designed at the Vinyl pressing plant. However, colouring or mixing can adversely affect the sound of the music and even add more time.
Choose your artwork
Over the decades, vinyl record pressing Australia created unique colour pressing and special editions for famous music artists who have been incredibly popular record collectors.
Most vinyl is all black in colours; you can also request pressing plant to produce a blend of colours that fit your album. Choosing out the text, font and style in which you write out the credits and any additional information on the vinyl helps preserve the artistic contributions.
Making the sleeves and record jackets are the final piece’s main important artwork. Artists have many options, including special die-cut covers, inserts, and gatefolds.
Offset custom vinyl record printing is more cost-effective for large runs and lets you maintain consistent quality throughout a large batch of printed material.
Finally, records are packaged shrink-wrapped and sent to labels for distribution.
Find a pressing plant
Presently, a couple of dozen vinyl pressing plants are available within Australia, so it’s vital to cite that once you have thought of how you want your vinyl pressed, you should shop around for the best turnaround time and price.
Turnaround time is very consequential. With numerous labels and artists pressing vinyl, you need to make sure the plant is a one-stop-shop solution for pressing, jacket printing, labelling Etc., and you have enough time for manufacturing your vinyl properly.
