Well done, Scott! Did you do it in Illustrator? If they do get it printed, you should at least get one... or a couple for free!

So I follow an 80s punk band on Facebook, The Dogmatics. I want a T-shirt of their old album "logo" so I made up the design and am trying to walk them thru how to get it done. They're a bunch of blue collar guys in Boston, not real up on the whole internet thing, so once they realized I wasn't trying to rip them off (I prepared the art and just gave it to them so they could offer them for sale and I can buy one), they said (I still don't know who I'm talking to) "do you know anything about designing printed record sleeves?"

So I might be designing a cover for the new Dogmatics record! Woohoo! 


But in doing my due diligence, I learned why so many old record labels were black/dark blue etc with silver metallic ink... They're subjected to high heat, twice: once when printed, the inks and adhesive are sort of heat-set, and then when the vinyl is pressed, the label is pressed in too. Blank paper can yellow or pick up off colors, pastels and full color images can fade or change color but the metallics and dark rich colors survive pretty well.

This is great news.  Over the decades, when it comes to audio, the Japanese have the highest standards and do not cut corners.  Japanese vinyl has always been sought after because of its consistently high quality.

That was awesome.  Filled in a few gaps of the pressing process like how the masters / mothers were made.  Funny seeing bare hands and cotton balls and a gallon of acetone.  Silly me, I used to wash my hands in the stuff when I was a kid getting resin off from making surfboards.  Got a few albums that were pressed at that plant.  They are usually held in high regard.

Rasputin's in Berkeley did a lot of commentary on their little dividers. When Styx' Mr. Roboto came out, they stuck a pallet of them by the front door with a sign {paraphrasing except for the profanity which I remember pretty clearly}: "We just want to make it easier on you kiddies who aren't going to buy anything good while you're here, just this crap from a crap band BUT DON'T THINK OUR SHAMING YOU IS HAVING ANY EFFECT ON SALES BECAUSE THIS FUCKER IS SCREAMING OUT THE FUCKING DOOR! Thanks."
