  Metal Processing Charges: From Your Lacquers
Regular weight

Two-step (mother and convert) $ 140.00 each side
Three-step (full processing)        $ 200.00 each side
Additional Stampers             $ 65.00 each side

HQ-180

Three step (Master/Mother/Stamper) $240.00 each side
Additional Stampers $ 80.00 each

Stamper info:  Our rule of thumb for ordering extra stampers for regular weight records is; one set of stampers per 1,000 records, plus one extra set for all colored vinyl jobs. For HQ-180 records it is; one set of stampers per 500 records. At least one extra set of stampers will be made on colored vinyl jobs to minimize downtime when a stamper change is needed.
