Vinyl Record Sales at 25 Year High!

 

Vinyl is back. Fueled by that unique sound quality and a nostalgia wave, vinyl sales have overtaken digital sales for the first time in the UK.

 

Vinyl’s share of the album market nearly doubled to 3.9% from January to March 2016, up from 2.1% in Q1 2015.

 

Consumers young and old have once again embraced physical formats of music. Listeners still want something tangible and real and that’s where vinyl is taking on the role.

 

The boost in vinyl sales is part of a wider shift in the fortunes of the music industry back towards turning a profit again.

Black and Coloured Vinyl

 

Black vinyl has always been the standard but in recent times coloured vinyl records have become popular with collectors and they usually command a premium price.

 

Many artists release limited edition coloured vinyl records as an added incentive for the customer to buy.

 

In a market where the buyer is looking for something special to complement their streaming music habits, artists are turning to exciting physical media such as vinyl if for no other reason than the fact that they’re different and unique.

 

Coloured vinyl can be provided as semi transparent or opaque, depending on requirements.  Transparent vinyl tends to provide better sound quality than opaque.

Sleeves and Gatefolds

 

We can provide plain white/black paper inner sleeves, colour printed 250gsm inner sleeves or for maximum protection we can supply poly-lined inner sleeves which reduce static and dust build up on the record.

 

Outer sleeves and gatefolds are 350gsm with full colour print. Further options include matte or gloss lamination, hot foiling, embossing and selective spot UV varnish.

 

Finally you can choose between a shrink wrapped product or insertion into overwrap with sealed flap.
