Ok so it has been great that the Excruciate did so well. There are only 23 copies left and it is technically not even the release date yet, however, it got me thinking that maybe for such great releases, we should press 500 instead of 300 so they don't sell out before they're even in stock. So basically what I'm saying is that we may press 500 Purtenance instead of 300, not that it will impact anyone on the forum, more of just an idea / statement. Pre-orders will most likely start next weekend

if pressing 500 means it will take you much longer to get enough money saved to do you next release, then stick with 300.

Screw it, I'm sticking with 300 for the Purtenance. Didn't realize how long it takes to pack and ship 300 LPs by myself, much less 500. I guess this was a pointless post.

Pressing 500 would result on selling each copy on a lower price than 300 on the other hand. Price was very OK for Excruciate lp but with shipping costs it was too much for getting just 1 lp for us European guys. With 500 I guess you might have as well European distros asking you for some distribution.
And nowadays with releases like Excruciate, Putrenance etc I think 500 can dissapear a bit easy in 2-3 months with all that hype.
Just my thoughts...

500 copies is fine , if your willing to trade with distros , as most wont buy.

If you dont wanna trade copies , then just press 300 and youve more chance of not being stuck with copies sat in a box and unwanted.

At the end of the day, you can always do a represss.

Hire a local college kid to pack 'em up? Even if you pay him min wage 2-3 hours can pack a lot of vinyls... assuming competency.

yeah I won't be doing trades anymore as we closed out mailorder a while ago so I think I'll stick to the 300 for this release.

Well, fortunately there have been some distributors still willing to carry copies despite the shipping costs which unfortunately cannot be helped. I actually am finding that shipping the Excruciate is costing a bit more than I charged, probably because of the heavier gauge boxes I am using for better protection.

300 or 500 doesn't make much a difference with bands like Purtenance and Excruciate as they should be able to sell either way, and given the demand, repress would also not be hard to do if you decide to start with 300. Making another 300 wouldn't be too hard, or another 500 depending on demand.

Are you shipping priority or just first class?

If you only have time/ money to do 300 at a time, just repress in another colour a further 300 when and if necessary- that way it's always in print if there is enough demand, and not if there isn't! Problem solved.

Actually It's the overseas parcels that I underestimated on.

That's a good idea, thank you!

Ah, that makes sense. I'd say for the next round (Purtenance) you should try to anticipate a small increase in postage prices as lately they seem to go up every couple of months.

yes, I was going to do that. I feel bad charging so much shipping for overseas customers but the LPs are so damn heavy when you pack them in sturdy boxes. I guess it's better to pay more for postage and have it packed well and safe, then pay less and have the LP come in a bubble mailer. I've actually gotten some LPs I paid a lot for on ebay, in BUBBLE MAILERS, no stiffener or anything. Unbelievable.
