Making Records
Until recently Stoughton was the only press in the United States to do the old style "tip-on," style sleeve process, the closest thing to the way most records were done in the 60s and 70s, but a little heavier -- originally developed for laserdiscs. Extremely cool dudes, recently lowered their prices.

Hamlett Printing does most of our labels. They're easy to deal with and the work has been great.

RTI in Southern California and United Record Pressing in Nashville both do quality, reasonably priced regular weight LPs. Yoga does standard 130-150 gram weight records -- a proven winner over the last 70 years. 180 gram is too expensive, is more prone to warping, and makes no sense environmentally speaking. You can't hear the difference and people need to get over it.
