For CUSTOM COLOR vinyl, you can specify a CMYK or pantone color in your order notes or ask for help on color selection after your order has been placed. Be aware that color matching is not exact.

  • check this box if you've upgraded your order to clear/white or any color vinyl, but want to press part of the quantity on black vinyl. A $60 setup fee for the black portion will apply. Even if not selected as an option here, it will be manually added to your invoice after checkout.

  • Upgrading less than the entire order quantity to 180GRAM vinyl and leaving the remainder on 140GRAM adds an extra $60 setup fee for the black portion.

on this page you can order audiophile vinyl pressing.  We manufacture your vinyl on a new warmtone press, using virgin vinyl, to ensure we can produce the most audiophile vinyl possible.  Just one of the reasons we are a favorite vinyl manufacturer.  The process starts with expert lacquer cutting in a state of the art studio on a fully restored Neumann lathe.

You can see and hear some of our most popular vinyl releases on the  Morphius Records bandcamp site

Our standard 12″ Vinyl Manufacturing – Record Pressing is done on black vinyl at 140G weight, but we also offer upgrades to 180G weight and color vinyl. Color vinyl options are: white vinyl, clear vinyl, translucent colors (red, green, yellow, blue), custom/opaque colors (anything we can make by mixing our standard colors together), and metallic vinyl (silver or gold). for any custom color request, you can provide us with either a pantone number or a jpeg or other color sample (CMYK mode recommended for greater accuracy).

Our Vinyl Manufacturing – Record Pressing process starts with cutting audio lacquers using a fully restored and rebuilt Neumann lathe, after a critical review of the audio to ensure best results and maximize compatibility for the transfer to vinyl. From there, the lacquers are plated, converting them to mothers and stampers which will actually press the test pressings (if applicable), and then the records themselves.

Our goal is always to make a record that sounds as good as our client’s source or better, audiophile quality whenever possible, within the limitations of the vinyl format, and our use of conventional lacquer process is proven as a superior method to the less full range DMM (direct metal mastering) process that some vinyl plants use to cut corners.
