Using


Notes

Records with skips and locked grooves (skips jump forward; locked grooves jump back and repeat) may be repaired using a microscope, fine tools, patience, and $35 per hour. (no repairs done without your approval) Otherwise, they are recorded as-is.

Skip repairs entail playing each song, identifying skip positions, repairing skips with microsurgery, playing the song again, and repeating the procedure until all skips are eliminated.
Some skips may not be repairable, and songs with multiple skips may take some time to fix all the damage.
Repaired skips may have some audible artifacts such as a "scratch" noise, or a "thump", since the skip repair creates a path through the scratch that the stylus (needle) goes into so that it goes back to the right groove.

Custom charicatures, cartoons and illustrations available. Inquire for pricing and details.

Slow speed mastering and speed correction for warped records and cylinders: $3.00 per track extra.

All prices include CD with plain text labeling, and CD envelope.
Instead of a plain white background, you can choose from 1000 stock backgrounds at no additional cost.
Basic CD with stock background.
Custom CD ($4 extra) with scanned picture over stock background. Comes in a CD envelope.
Deluxe CD ($7.50 extra) in a jewel case. The front and back images on the jewel case inserts are the front and back album jacket images, scanned and reduced to fit.
Deluxe CD. The image on the CD is the record label, scanned and altered to reflect the playlist.

Backup copy of your CD: $7.50 per CD. The backup has all audio and image files and is kept here in the shop in case something happens to your CD and you need a replacement, or if you want any additional copies made.
For extra protection, another backup is made and kept in another location, just in case.

Replacement copies are $10 for the first, and $5 for additional copies.
For copyrighted recordings, you get only one copy, and you have to send in the original recording to prove that you still own it. Just following the law, folks.

Sales tax (8.9%), shipping and insurance extra.

All prices in U.S. Dollars ($US)
