FAQ’s

What’s Included?

You or your recipient will receive one custom vinyl postcard with your custom photo, note & recording. There’s also a web address / QR code that is printed on the back where they can access digital downloads of the photo & recording.

Approval Process / Shipping

After submitting your order, we will be in touch with final artwork via email. We will not begin production on your custom card until you’ve approved the design & audio. If no answer is given within 3 days of our email, we will begin production and mail out the card as soon as possible. Production currently takes 3-5 days from order.

These postcards are inserted into plastic sleeves and mailed in envelopes with thick chipboard to prevent bending. They’re shipped from France with tracking included. (Starting at $6.50 shipping). Tracking information will be provided once the card is sent.

Can I include music instead of a voice recording?

Yes! However, you must own the rights or have permission to reproduce the song. Keep in mind, due to the experimental nature of these custom releases… These are a bit more lofi / quieter than our normal vinyl postcards.

How are these made?

Our custom vinyl postcards are not the same as our normal postcard releases that are part of our record club. These are “embossed” on thin sheets of PVC and are made one at a time, in real time. They’re 100% handmade. Your recording is played through small speakers that are connected to a needle that embosses the sound on a PVC sheet as it’s spinning. The longer the audio, the longer it takes to emboss the record.

How do these sound?

These releases tend to be a bit more lo-fi than our normal releases and have more pops / crackles throughout. These are more noticeable in voice messages but hidden a bit more in recordings with loud music throughout. Listen to our promo video to get an idea of how these sound.

Will these play on my turntable?

Each custom vinyl postcard is tested to ensure it works on a properly weighted record player. Inexpensive players (Crosley, etc.) with red cartridges / needles in particular tend to have trouble with these types of releases. These tend to work best on turntables that have a proper counterweight and anti-skate setting.

What is the return policy?

We are unable to accept most returns on custom vinyl postcards due to the fact that there’s a high level of customization to each card. Listen to the video at the top of the page to get an idea of the sound and ensure that you have a proper turntable set up for listening. (A player with proper counter-weight & anti-skate settings)
