Quality and Re-cutting

Records

We try to achieve the best and consistent sound quality with each record, but since the cutting process has a lot of variables, each cut might have slightly varying sonic qualities. Sonic qualities could include but not limited to: volume levels, stereo/mono distortion, wow and flutter and adjusted frequencies. All  products are free from defects such as scratches, severely warped records, and  broken grooves. If a record is reported as defective, it must be reported within 30 days from shipment date and be returned at the customer’s expense to American Vinyl Co for review. Record players and stereo components have a strong influence on how our vinyl records will sound and operate. For that reason we will test any returned records on our hi fi professional system to verify reported defects. If no defect is found, it is the customers responsibility to have the record shipped back to them. Vinyl records produced at American Vinyl Co are made from a special PVC plastic and is different from retail pressed vinyl records, but has similar durability and frequency response.

 

American Vinyl Co uses the exact audio that is received. If the audio was submitted incorrectly, the record will be recut at purchasers expense.

 

Covers and labels

Printed materials such as record cover and labels are printed exactly as submitted/displayed by the customer on either the online designer or the templates. American Vinyl Co doesn’t accept replacements or returns of printed covers or labels due to misalignment, spelling errors, pixelation, or any other design flaws. American Vinyl Co will provide refunds on any custom products (covers, labels, records). If the product is flawed/defective because of assembly, we will replace the item with the same design that was submitted. Customer must provide photos of the defective cover via email to americanvinylco1@gmail.com. Because computer monitors display colors differently, we cannot guarantee exact color match to what your monitor might be showing.

 

Abandoned Orders and Cancellations

 

Orders that are not completed by the customer (uploading audio, designing cover and labels, or providing any information that is required) within 30 days will be sent a gift credit for the amount of the order. No refunds will be made. A customer can cancel an order up to 14 days from purchase.
