Artists Powered By Fans
Fund your next vinyl release with no up-front costs and get the exact number of records you need. We distribute your records direct to fan, reducing shipping costs and environmental impact. Whether it’s a new album, reissue, exclusive live album or whatever else, FairSound is ready to get your music on vinyl.
FairSound enables labels to understand demand for each artist. With no upfront costs, our fan funded pre-order campaigns can help you free up cash for other projects. Whether it’s a new release or historic project, FairSound makes releasing vinyl easier than ever.
Support your favourite artists to release their music on vinyl! Each pre-order is one-step closer to funding an entire run of vinyl.
When you back a campaign, funds will be taken from your account. Once the Press On Point is reached, manufacturing begins
If the campaign is unsuccessful, you will receive a full refund.
Artists powered by you. Independent artists are facing unprecedented challenges and with your help, you can make having their music pressed to vinyl a reality.
This is the backing phase, where artists/labels have up to 30 days to reach the Press On Point - which is the number of pre-orders needed to fund the pressing of at least 100 vinyl records.
Once a campaign reaches the Press On Point, the 12 week manufacturing period begins: lacquer cutting, metalwork and test presses are started. Pre-orders can continue at the artists request for another 21 days.
After this point, the final number of records for the run is decided - based on the total number of pre-orders plus any extras needed by the artist/label to sell on tour, in stores or online.
We make the records in-house at Press On Vinyl and order the printed parts. Once the full run is pressed, we pack and distribute directly to customers.
This saves extra postage and packaging fees to the artist/label, whilst also being kinder on the environment. Not only that, but it also saves time as the records will be sent straight to fans rather than a third party fulfilment company. Once your full order is fulfilled, profits are paid out to the artist or label.
