It’s no secret that vinyl continues to grow in popularity. The demand for vinyl has grown so much that some indie labels are speaking out, calling out major labels for monopolizing pressing plants.
Record pressing plants are finally starting to react to the increased demand. United Record Pressing recently expanded their operations by 142,000 square feet.

Now, Disc Makers is getting back into the vinyl game.
Disc Makers originally started producing vinyl in 1946. Their manufacturing plant made it easy for independent artists to get records pressed at a reasonable price.
15 years ago Disc Makers’ vinyl business was no longer feasible, and they decided to focus on CDs, DVDs, cassettes, and other formats instead.
Now, after five years of consideration, the company has dusted off and restored their old vinyl pressing equipment. They’ll be using their old equipment once again.
Vinyl can be ordered through the Disc Maker website.
