    Other information:

    Independent Record Pressing was founded in 2015 in Bordentown, NJ by Dave Hansen (Principal of Exceleration Music) and Darius Van Arman, Ben Swanson, & Chris Swanson from the Secretly Group with the vision to have a plant that supports and presses vinyl records for independent labels.

    In a time when music can be consumed for free, a music fan spending $25 on an LP means that the expectation for quality is high. From test pressings, to consistent sound quality checks during production, to the assembly process, we continue to make the best records in the market and make sure our customers are 100% satisfied.

    The Process of making vinyl is detailed and intricate, we give customers the online access to view where their records are at each step in the production process. We are flexible. We can press and assemble albums with components that you supply, or we can handle the entire process from getting lacquers cut and ordering all print components.
