45s

My band just finished recording 2 songs and we want to put them on 45s. I think it would be awesome but I can't find a company that does that. Does anybody know of a company that does this?

Who is your target audience?

The people I know that have turntables only listen to classical, jazz and 60-70s rock.

You can make more money selling mp3s than 45s.

Older basses are not better, they are just older.

Its not going to seem as cool when you find out how expensive it is to press vinyl.

Jesus, who cares? Just answer the question. I'd love to do it. Why? Cause it would be really cool. That's all that really matters. Surely the OP can figure out things like the costliness himself.

If somebody wants to drop $600 for 'a few' 45's - go for it.

I'm sure he's glad to have your approval.

FWIW, you could get 100 for that price from many places. $6 a disc? Not bad in my books.

Have fun trying to hold an mp3, or roll a spliff on one.

Surely the 'tough crowd' are the ones who attempt to shoot down the OP's idea by pointing out things he is almost definitely already aware of.

How can he be 'definitely already aware of' the cost if he doesn't even know of a company that presses vinyl?

And he only wants 'a few' and the minimum order is typically 100.

It still costs $600 for 'a few'. If its worth it to him - great. 45's would be cool.

I was responding to Ric5, who said that it is cheaper to make mp3s than 45s. Everyone is aware of that.

My vinyl collection consists of a wide variety of stuff from mono pressings of classic Sinatra to recently-released albums by Social D and The Black Keys. I play them frequently.

+1

Mine covers Stax/Atlantic, Motown, hard bop, swing, avant-garde jazz, plenty of blues, 60s rock n roll, folk music, funk etc. Perhaps not as broad as yours, and is mainly made up of jazz and 60s rock, as Stick_Player was saying, but I'm proud of it and it's full of some gems.

I used to master a decent amount of vinyl, and he had them pressed at rainbow records. Alot of lcal bands around here release their albums on vinyl. It's not a lot more than a cd in a nice case.

Wow! You sound so cool! And, if the OP's plans come to fruition, you can add in one more vinyl slab!

BTW, I did include a vinyl manufacturer's info in my post. And I stand by my assertion.
