What are your turnaround times?

Average turnaround times at the moment are approximately 8-12 weeks, although this will vary depending on order size, complexity, etc.

If you have any questions or concerns, or if you have a specific deadline in mind for your project, please contact us in order to ensure that we can accommodate you!

Why should I choose Hellbender?

We're musicians ourselves, and we started Hellbender Vinyl because we got tired of giving vinyl plants thousands of dollars and then have them not communicate with us for months.

When you choose to press your vinyl with Hellbender, you'll have a personal, dedicated concierge who will provide you with weekly updates throughout the entire process!

And because we're musicians ourselves, in addition to helping you with placing your order, we also won't settle for anything less than the best-sounding vinyl you've ever heard!

Every record is listened to and approved by our Head of Quality Assurance and Quality Control, Orlando "Buscrates" Marshall, an internationally-celebrated producer and vinyl DJ who doesn't let any order leave our facility until it meets his S-tier standards!

With our 100% test pressing approval rate and our award-winning level of customer service, we guarantee that you'll not only be satisfied, but thrilled with the end result!

How much music can I fit on a record?

Generally speaking, these are the ballpark 'limits' for each format...

7″ - up to 6 minutes per side

10" - up to 15 minutes per side

12" - up to 22 minutes per side

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about your project!

Can you master my record?

We can master your record, although our engineers will charge an additional fee, so please contact us for rates.

Most mastering engineers will master for vinyl, though, so you're not required to use Hellbender for these services if you're already working with an engineer. However, you should tell your engineer that you're planning on releasing your record on vinyl, as they may then create a specific vinyl master separate from the master that will be submitted to digital platforms. What sounds good on vinyl can sometimes be very different than what sounds good on Spotify!

Where are your artwork templates?

How many test presses will I receive?

Every order comes with five (5) test presses at no charge! Extra test presses beyond that are $20 each, and reference lacquers are available as well - please contact us if you're interested in either of these additional items!

Can you do splatter discs, swirls, etc?

Yes! There's no limit to what Hellbender Vinyl can create with the help of your imagination!

We simply can't list every variation and possibility on our website, however, so please contact us today to start creating the record of your dreams!

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept Venmo, PayPal, Google Pay, Apple Pay, all major credit cards (including American Express), and more!

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding how you'd like to pay.

Can I come visit the plant?

Sure! We love showing people how their vinyl comes to life!

We're located at 5794 Butler Street in Upper Lawrenceville, next to Arsenal Strength and Somewhere Good Electric Tattooing (look for our sign out front). If you've reached the Pittsburgh Zoo, you've gone too far!

Just give us a heads up whenever you'd like to stop by!
