If you have ever tried to order pressed vinyl records for your music, you are aware of the extreme cost, long wait times, and high minimum orders associated with this format. As the demand for vinyl records (and the cost of pressing records) continues to grow, Pink Dress Studio offers an affordable, extremely cool alternative. Pink Dress lathe-cut records are made by hand, individually, and in real-time. We use 3 different record lathes from the 1940’s and 1950’s that have been restored and modified to achieve optimum fidelity. We prepare your audio files for the cutting process and cut your music into grooves on records. If you’ve purchased or heard lathe cut records in the past and were not happy with the fidelity of the medium, give Pink Dress a try. Nothing on the planet sounds like a pressed record, but we make some really great sounding lathe cuts.
Pink Dress lathe-cut records are truly made in Geneva, NY. The blank discs, the labels and all packaging are sourced from independent businesses located in Geneva. They are cut on Reed Street.
