Hand Drawn Pressing to help more artists take advantage of ‘vinyl revival’ by launching with state-of-the-art technology
Hand Drawn to Launch New Vinyl Pressing Facility
World’s-first Automated Record Presses in Over 30 Years
In a state-of-the-art facility in Dallas, Texas, Hand Drawn Records, the award-winning independent label and vinyl record pressing service, will soon be crafting the world’s most sought after music medium using the world’s-first automated record presses in over 30 years.
Over the last decade the unprecedented rise of vinyl record sales (260% increase in sales 2009-2015, often referred to as the “vinyl revival”) and the crumbling status of timeworn pressing plants has been well documented as a global issue, but until now, no one had a solution.
With the operation of the only fully automatic WARM TONE presses in the world (and initial annual projections of nearly 1M units produced), Hand Drawn is proud to announce Hand Drawn Pressing as the newest player with the most advanced tools. The technological advances in efficiency, and cycle time speed is unmatched by any of WARM TONE’s vintage predecessors, yet it is Hand Drawn’s unwavering commitment to the artist, which sets Hand Drawn Pressing apart.
Beginning in fall 2016, Hand Drawn Pressing will begin production in their new facility.
