Bandcamp Launches Crowdfunded Vinyl Pressing Service
The service will allow artists and labels to press vinyl with no out-of-pocket cost.
Bandcamp has announced a new crowdfunding service to press vinyl.
The service will provide an avenue for artists and labels to create a vinyl campaign with no up-front investment while streamlining the financing, production, and fulfillment of vinyl records. The label or artist will set the pricing and profit margins and once a campaign reaches its minimum goal, Bandcamp will press and ship the vinyl record directly to fans. The company also says they’re working with a manufacturer with “over 60 years experience producing vinyl.”
The service will launch to all artists and labels later this year. You can check out a pilot program of the service here.
