PICTURE DISC
Picture discs are vinyl records which have a printed label and plastic foil on both sides (covering the entire surface area). In case of a records with audio on one side only, there has to be a silent groove (groove without signal) on the side without audio, it cannot stay blank without any groove.
SHAPED DISC
We believe that vinyl records should not be limited only to round, black records. A shaped record is the perfect media for limited edition and special collector‘s items. The shape of the final product is completely up to you – if it is technically possible (taking the total area available for the music into consideration), we can shape it for you. Shaped discs can be of any colour or effect.
SHAPED PICTURE DISC
Shaped picture disc is the perfect media for collector‘s edition, promotional records as well as limited editions. It offers a wide scope for your cre ativity. The picture disc label must be by 2-3mm smaller than the requested final shape siz e. Please note that there is a risk of warping as only one label printed from both sides is used.
SCREEN PRINTED
This type of a record can be made with a combination of any solid or transparent colours using silkscreen print. Artwork is to be supplied 1/0 K and you can choose from CMYK or Pantone colour. Artwork size 292 mm max. Vinyl format: 7, 10, 12 inches.
ETCHED VINYL
An etched vinyl is a record with an image (graphic, band logo, text, etc.) etched into a blank side of your record. Usually there are no grooves containing music/sound on the etched side of the record. Please consult a Cyclone representative for more information about ETCHED VINYL options.
