SPECIAL PRESSINGS

We at Pallas know that a coloured record can truly be a collector’s item. Take a look at the various versions and their effect on the A and B side.

Surcharges & Mixtures

As special pressings are handcrafted, smaller irregularities must be accepted. Depending on the used batch of vinyl granulate even re-orders can have a slightly different look than the previous one. All indicated Pantone colours can only be seen as a rough information on the target outcome.

On some more elaborate versions there is a surcharge of 30 % or 50 % on the base costs for special pressings. If there is an additional splatter colour beyond the first one additional costs of 0,03 € excl. VAT per record will be charged. In case of using a base colour that is a mixture of different vinyl colours the set-up costs for coloured vinyl will also be charged. Pure white vinyl can’t be used as a base colour. Instead, a mixture of 70% white and 30% transparent will be used.  

Please make sure to indicate the version of the special pressing including your chosen vinyl colours in your purchasing order.
