When will my order ship?
Please be aware that as all our releases are pre-orders, our expected turnaround times will vary depending on each release. We aim to fulfil all orders within 4-6 months, however due to the nature of vinyl production, some releases may take longer to manufacturer.
How will my order be shipped?
We know how fragile the shipping process is regarding vinyl, which is why we pride ourselves on using high quality custom Qikpak LP mailers from UBEECO. These LP mailers are eco-friendly, are internally secured to eliminate the need for bubble wrap, and are built with a 25mm crumple zone on all edges to prevent damage in transit. We also desleeve all records to avoid seam splits or damage to the sleeve.
For those who want to be certain their record will arrive in perfect condition, we also offer a PREMIUM shipping option which provides further padding and protection. If you choose not to take out these options and your record arrives warped, please be aware that we will not refund or replace your order.
We have also partnered with Heaps Good Packaging who manufacture fully recyclable shipping labels and packing tape, to ensure that your mailer is 100% recyclable without the need to remove any labels. We also use black compostable satchels for products other than vinyl.
Where are your records pressed?
We are stoked to be collaborating with Zenith Records in Victoria, in an effort to maintain a high standard of quality and reduce long international turnaround times, while supporting local Australian manufacturers.
