While listening to music on digital devices has become the norm, analog records continue to attract people with their warm sound. CUT&REC is a dubplate service which allows you to create an original, one-of-a-kind record online. As long as you have an audio recording and artwork, anyone can make their own original record including jacket, starting from editions of one copy. Have your precious moment cut into the grooves of your own original record!

GIVE FORM TO YOUR MEMORIES WITH OUR RECORD JACKETS AND PICTURE DISCS

EACH RECORD AND JACKET ARE MADE ONE AT A TIME. HANDMADE WITH PASSION

  • ORIGINAL RECORD

    You can design both the jacket and labels for CUT&REC's dubplates, which are great not only for original music, they're also perfect for field recordings of memorable sounds of nature or for a message to express your feelings.

  • FOR YOUR MUSIC

    Put your instrument or vocal performances down on vinyl, whether it's a guitar or piano recital, original DJ tracks or songs with your band, or recordings of your favorite karaoke songs. It's recommended for making a copy of your private recordings. It will be an irreplaceable document for those moments when you get lost in the music.

  • FOR YOUR SOUND

    The bubbling of the river where you went for your family camping trip. The cheering of your teammates on the field. The exotic sounds of a festival from your trip abroad. You can record memorable environmental sounds and have them cut to vinyl. Use a photo you took for the jacket, and you can reminisce on those wonderful memories with your own analog record.

  • FOR YOUR MESSAGE

    As congratulations for a colleague's marriage. For a friend's birthday surprise. To show gratitude to a parent, while sharing the voice of their grandchild as a 60th birthday present. Have your own profound message delivered through analog record. An original record made with your own message and photo would be an ideal gift for someone important to you.

  • VINYL QUALITY

    We offer 7, 10, and 12-inch sizes, as well as a choice between black and clear vinyl. CUT&REC's records, made from polyvinyl chloride, boast virtually the same quality as commercially sold records and provide superior durability when it comes to DJing and scratching.

  • JACKET QUALITY

    We use a high-resolution printer to print our record jackets, for a high-quality product on par with commercially sold records. To ensure they are long-lasting and durable, our jackets are laminated. This protects your precious artwork from dirt and moisture, and prevents the colors from fading.

EASY ONLINE ORDERING. PREVIEW WITH 3D RENDERING

Ordering your original record can be done completely online. After following the steps and uploading your original audio recordings and images from your computer, you can preview a 3D rendering of the record. You can always check the price and expected ship date, ensuring a smooth ordering process. (Please note that all browsers may not support the 3D preview.)

PRICE IS DETERMINED BY NUMBER OF TRACKS AND DESIGN

At CUT&REC, the final price for your record depends on how many tracks you need and whether or not you wish to have artwork. Choose the record size and upload the recordings you want on the record, and the price will be calculated according to the number of tracks. We also offer a bulk discount for orders of 2 or more records, with a maximum of 20% off. You can make your own customized record with CUT&REC dubplate service.
