Let's all pretend I originally used the word "Advice", thanks!

I don't know anything about this, but your question reminded me of ads I see in Razorcake magazine such as for www.luckylacquers.com.

according to the ad, 500 12"s for $1253. (including Master Lacquers Flat Cut, Masters Shipping, Plating, 4 Tests, 2-Color Center Art, White Paper Sleeves)

Maybe that's a starting point.

I've seen quite a number of independent pressers, and prices in the $1000-1500 range for small run, just wanted to know if anyone else has gone down this path and had any recommendations

Avoid United Record Pressing at all costs (which will be easy, as I don't think they do runs of under 300 anymore, but they used to).

I've heard very good things about Gotta Groove (http://www.gottagrooverecords.com), and they'll do runs of 100. I don't know if anyone does runs of less than that, though.

we've used these guys for several runs as they are local (altho they use that the Czech printing plant): http://piratespress.com/cms/

I am interested in this too, but from a UK POV.

but then again, who really cares? I don’t. (dog latin), Thursday, 23 April 2015 09:10 (four years ago) link

three years pass...

Anyone here ever use https://vinyl.express ? If so, were the results good?
