Vinyl Pressing for Indie Bands
Vinyl pressing for indie bands is a long-standing tradition that is gaining popularity once again. Vinyl sales have grown more than 1900% since 1993. Some of the biggest bands in the world have albums on vinyl again, and it is considered one of the best mediums for indie bands to get their sound out to fans. Whether you’re selling albums at shows, or making a limited run for a release party, vinyl recordings are a great way to get music to the people and can act as a valuable promotional item.
 

Vinyl

 
Vinyl record production offers indie bands the opportunity to recapture the feelings of an era long since passed. Limited edition runs of albums pressed on vinyl tend to be the biggest sellers at merch tables. In some cases, the reason can be nostalgia. For others, the seemingly antiquated format offers users a better, deeper connection to the band and the music.
 
Vinyl isn’t about old-timers attempting to regain the analogue experiences of their youth. It’s about the tangibility of a physical object that simply can’t be found digitally. While CDs do provide a physical object that can be collected and held, they don’t offer the same pride of ownership that a vinyl record can. The larger format feels more substantial and there’s just something about the ritual of opening a record sleeve for the first time, sliding the vinyl out, and placing it on a turntable. It’s just not the same as pushing play on an MP3 player. Some argue about the differences in the sound quality between digital and analogue recordings. The truth is that scratches in the album add warmth and texture to the sound. Each small tone is unique to the record in question, and listeners can identify their record from someone else’s with ease. A well-used vinyl album becomes a part of your memories in a way that no other medium can. Some artists go so far as to artificially add the crackling sounds of vinyl to their digital recordings.
 

Packaging

 
Indie bands shouldn’t need to sacrifice quality when pressing a vinyl album. When a company as reputable and dependable as Duplium is chosen for pressing and packaging, paper and board products are printed according to the highest possible standards. It’s just one of the reasons that they are so frequently contacted by major labels and indie bands alike. Different stock options, coatings, and an in-house design team leads to the creation of innovative and beautiful packaging that can make the finished product look both beautiful and professional.
 
Vinyl pressing for indie bands is an ideal solution that puts the music in the hands of the listener. Digital media certainly has its place, but when it comes to music, the larger format of a vinyl record helps to create a bond with the sound that has been missing for years. The vinyl-revival is here. Music listeners are beginning to realize that the connection between sound and sleeve should never have been separated. If the recording sessions are over and it’s time to consider the medium through which you choose to interact with your audience, consider the larger, nostalgia-inducing vinyl record.
