About Smashed Plastic
Smashed Plastic Pressing was founded by a group of vinyl enthusiasts, record collectors, and local music lovers who wanted to bring high-quality vinyl pressing back to Chicago, after more than a 35-year absence. Dedicated to our mantra “Press Local”, we began pressing in 2018 and deals direct with artists and independent labels, coordinating all aspects of audio transfer, print material production, vinyl pressing, product assembly, and packaging. Utilizing new technologies and environmentally-friendly processes, Smashed Plastic has developed a unique, innovative approach to a remarkably enduring format.
