Why Furnace?

  • Product Description

    We make records for listening, not for collecting dust on a shelf. Our 12" Econo-Package includes everything you’ll need to release your music on high quality vinyl: including mastering & lacquer or copper DMM (direct metal master) disc cutting, galvanic plating and stamper manufacturing, custom test pressings, automated 12" vinyl pressing, dust sleeve, label and fold-over printing, as well as final assembly and a perforated and sealed poly-bag.


    Unlike CDs, not all vinyl records are created equal. We’ve designed our entire manufacturing process to provide a consistently superior alternative to the noisy, poorly manufactured records that for too long have been the “industry standard.”


    Details: 12" 125g black vinyl, full-color labels, premium white dust sleeves, full-color (one side) fold-over inserts on 80lb coated stock, assembly,perforated and sealed poly-bag, double box protective packaging, PDF art proofs, free UPC code. Also includes mastering for vinyl including DMM or Lacquer cut, galvanics and plating, set of 5 test pressings for your approval. Does not include overage (+/- 10%) and shipping. All product is shipped from Fairfax, VA USA.


    Process:

    Our experienced staff masters your audio specifically for vinyl before cutting it to copper or lacquer discs using our Neumann DMM or traditional lathes.

    Cut master discs then go to our in-house galvanic lab for mother and stamper creation. Once the stampers have been meticulously produced and inspected, they are installed in the press and custom test pressings generated for your final approval.

    We press generous, 125 gram weight black vinyl using our specially formulated, high performance compound. Our custom PVC formulation produces the industry’s lowest surface noise.

    As an added bonus, our vinyl is lead, cadmium and toluene-free: three toxic ingredients found in virtually all other vinyl formulations. We can honestly say we offer the "greenest" vinyl records you’ll find on the planet!

    All of our record labels and inserts are printed on the highest-quality paper stock using Heidelberg printers.  We produce full color, pre-baked labels that exit the hot, high pressure pressing environment blister-free and pristine looking. Our fold-over inserts are printed on 80lb coated text paper stock on a high quality digital press producing offset quality results.

    After final assembly, your records are double-boxed for complete protection during transit.

    From first step to last, Furnace Manufacturing leaves nothing to chance, assuring that both you and your fans will get the world’s highest quality vinyl records.


    Fine Print:

    Product ships with a quantity tolerance of +/- 10%. You will be billed for the exact amount pressed and shipped. The weight of the vinyl can vary +/- 5% due to fluctuations of the compound on press. Freight is not included. Shipping is FOB, Furnace MFG, Fairfax, VA, USA. Although we have an excellent on-time track record, turn times are not guaranteed.

    Tips on speeding up your vinyl order:

    Provide label art at the same time you submit your audio. It takes a solid week and a half to get through proofing, printing and baking labels.  If the labels are printed when your test pressing is approved, we can get the order in the schedule immediately.

    Make sure you supply us a track listing or PQ sheet along with your audio.  In order to cut your record properly, we need to have the track names, order, side, RPM and time so we can ensure a proper cut.

    If you need a custom printed jacket or are looking for a custom vinyl color, this takes extra time. If you are in a hurry, stick to the basic packages and colors. If you need something customized, work all of this out in advance with your Sales Consultant so they can try and put all of this in place before the order is received.

  • Furnace MFG the competition
    We use our own specially formulated European compound that provides consistently high-quality records with the lowest surface noise availableThey use cheaper PVC from Asia that is known for quality issues and inconsistency
    We use an earth friendly compound that is free of toxins such as lead, cadmium and toluene found in virtually all other PVC formulation in the industryVirtually all other PVC compound contains toxins which is bad for workers and the environment
    We master specifically for vinyl and to the exact specifics for our in-house galvanics and plating lab -producing consistency throughout the processOutside mastering labs are mostly cutting to their own standard as opposed to cutting to the specs of the pressing plant
    We offer experience - your record will be cut by our head mastering engineer with over 30 years of cutting records for such heavyweights as Michael Jackson, Pink Floyd, Pearl Jam, Green Day and countless othersMost facilities outsource this step, which is one of the most critical steps of the mastering process
    We master to both lacquer or DMM (direct metal mastering) and choose the best method based on the style of music, length of program and decibel requirements.Most facilities do not have this option and cut exclusively to lacquer or DMM regardless of the source master and requirements
    We grow our own copper master blanks for our DMM cutting allowing us to cut grooves nearly as deep as on lacquer while keeping the DMM clarityOthers buy inferior copper blanks that do not offer the same cutting depth and plant specific formulations needed to press a near perfect record
    We include stamper fees into our vinyl costsOthers tack on stamper fees to the final bill making it impossible to get a true per unit cost until the job is complete - and often times - costing much more than originally quoted
    We only use automated vinyl presses that are set up specifically for the format and vinyl weight required - allowing us to press a consistent record each and every time without retoolingOthers use the same presses for several different formats or different weight vinyl which negatively effects the quality and consistency of pressed vinyl unless perfectly executed
    We press a perfectly flat record that does not require the need for a groove guard. The record thickness is the same at the edge as it is in the center improving playability and audible clarityOthers press a record that is not flat and requires a groove guard to prevent the stylus from falling off the edge. Concave vinyl also causes inconsistency during playback - pesky physics!
    We properly prepare metal parts and calibrate our presses for each title so the final product is free of pressing abnormalitiesOthers press records from improperly made parts causing visible and sometimes audible pits, deformed grooves and poorly tracked stampers
    With over 50 presses online, we offer the most capacity of any vinyl producer in the worldMost facilities don't have this luxury and can easily be bottle necked during rush seasons or when large orders come through
    We sleeve all records as they come off the press - preventing scuffs, scratches and other issues that may arise during the curing process Most others stack vinyl on top of each other as they come off the press and before they are fully cured
    We only use specially formulated color vinyl compound that is made to meet our high standard of audible clarity - producing quality as close to black vinyl as is currently found in the industryOthers see color vinyl as a gimmick not requiring the same QC attention as black vinyl
    We offer high quality label printing on blister free bright white stock. All of our labels are pre-baked to withstand the high heat and pressure environment on pressOthers use standard paper stock not meant for high heat and pressure application leaving a less than optimal label appearance
    We offer a smooth label appearance on the final product free of stamper or mold inconsistenciesOthers use old vinyl molds that deform the label making it look warped or damaged
    We only use custom made, high quality dust sleeves made from smooth paper stock to protect the record from press to your customer. Poly-lined sleeves are available for even more protectionOthers use cheap, ill-fitting sleeves that don't do much to protect the record - it's sole purpose
    We offer a large variety of packaging and jacket options to meet any need. We use the heaviest and stiffest board product on all of our standard jacket products--
    We double or triple box all vinyl prior to shipping to ensure that each and every record arrives safely to your doorstep--
    We offer over 25 years of vinyl pressing experience and can advise you through the manufacturing experience and help you avoid mistakes often made by first time vinyl buyers--
    We offer quick and consistent lead times year round so you can always count on us to provide clear communication and the same turn scheduleOthers have long or inconsistent lead times which makes scheduling impossible
    All product is assembled, packaged and shipped from Fairfax, VA USA by American workers in safe working environments--
