The dates below are updated frequently, and are 99% accurate. We recognize turnaround may not always be as fast as we would like it to be. But, we do pride ourselves on doing what we say we can do, within the time frame we say we can do it – without sacrificing quality control measures to rush more records out the door.
While the dates below are not necessarily set in stone, if you are able to pull together the necessary parts, we highly recommend trying to place your orders by the suggested order date (or sooner, if possible) to leave enough room to make the delivery date. It’s always better to get your records early than trying to rush them together at the last minute!
CURRENT APPROXIMATE TURNAROUND TIMES (UPDATED 06/14/13 – CHECK BACK BEFORE PLACING AN ORDER):
12″ standard weight – orders placed business week of June 17, 2013 will probably ship sometime the week of September 30, 2013.*
12″ 180 gram – orders placed business week of June 17, 2013 will probably ship sometime the week of September 30, 2013.*
7″ — orders placed business week of June 17, 2013 will probably ship sometime the week of September 30, 2013.*
* These approximate ship dates (which can fluctuate) are assuming GGR is handling lacquers, plating, and label printing. Turnaround can vary if you are supplying any of these parts. Also assumes you will provide necessary approvals within 2 business days of receipt of test cuts, test pressings, and/or art proofs. If you are trying to plan a specific release date and/or event, please discuss with us before committing to any date, in spite of any other information posted on this page.
GGR WILL BE CLOSED FOR MAINTENANCE DURING THE WEEK OF AUGUST 5, 2013. ORDERS WHICH ARE FINISHED PRESSING WILL SHIP DURING THIS WEEK, BUT NO RECORDS WILL BE PRESSED DURING THIS WEEK.
**** PRE-SCHEDULE YOUR PRESS TIME! ****
Pre-scheduling is a new service we are happy to offer to help you make your release date happen on time every time!*
If you know (even tentatively) of any upcoming projects you are aiming to do in the future, we can “pre-schedule” press time for you. Even if the masters and other info are very tentative, if you have any info as far as desired delivery date(s), format(s), and quantities, we can schedule your press time at the earliest possible date, so that other unscheduled orders get pressed around yours as they come in. Vinyl color(s) and other details can change as necessary – we just ask that you follow through with the orders in some manner (of course, we understand if the “band breaks up” or something really extreme, and would never make you press records you don’t need).
*Of course, certain time frames for delivery of masters / art files / approvals are needed to be met, and delays in such can delay your orders. But, we will certainly keep you informed of such cutoff dates.
Contact us today to pre-schedule your press time! A $100 holding fee is required to hold a press date – this fee will be applied to your final order balance. Also, no problem if your plans change – please just be sure to alert us of changes to your order specs and/or due date at least a month in advance of your pre-scheduled date (or earlier, if possible). We are happy to be flexible with your plans.
Please note – all dates subject to change, so we cannot emphasize enough the need to actually talk with someone at GGR before committing to any date. Also, please check back to this page frequently, as dates are always fluctuating (sometimes a few times per day).
We will always do our best to deliver by your date, or if necessary, suggest alternatives to you. One of the worst things to happen in this biz is to have an event built around a record release, and not have the records in hand. Please keep us informed of your plans so we can do everything in our power to help you.
