What Test Presses do you own?

Recommended Posts

I don't think I got to show this off yet...

3xLP Test Press for the as-of-yet unreleased remastered Shpongle - Are You Shpongled?

It's amazing to finally have all the tracks in one place.
I do not however have any indication of when the preorder may be. 


This was the song layout:

A1    Shpongle Falls    
A2    Shpongle Spores    
B    Vapour Rumours    
C    Monster Hit    
D    Behind Closed Eyelids    
E    Divine Moments Of Truth    
F    ...And The Day Turned To Night

I recently got a couple of new Test presses (which I've already talked about a bit in the Recent Purchases thread) and was wondering if anyone here has any good leads on a distributor of blank white or black cardboard jackets in the UK?

 

I dabble with painting as a hobby and want a few blanks so I can make some custom jackets to store these in as a sort of fun and cheap weekend project. 

P.S. I'm sorry if this bump sets off anyone's "Tug's Search For The Inner Sleeve" PTSD. I assure you I'm genuine and will not keep flip-flopping on what I want to boost my post count. I have asked a few friends and done a few cursory searches but I'm really hoping for any company that's EU/UK based that someone can vouch for.

Perhaps Protected.de (don't know what the shipping to the UK is):
http://protected.de/en/lp-cover-white-deluxe-1010

Though these are quite thin (thinner than a normal cover, so they don't provide much protection).

Awesome will check them out. Whatever the postage it's gotta be better than importing from America. Thanks for your help.

 

*EDIT*
Pretty pricey. Maybe I'll have to go to local craft shop and see what sort of card stock/sizes they carry and DIY the net. 20euros is still too steep when I really need under 10.

Just got my Blacktop Cadence-la reine d'alcool TP. It felt like Christmas. No Idea Records has been saying for about 10 frigging years they were gonna press this. Feel very fortunate I was paying attention when a copy popped up.

Congrats .. where did you found it?

Four Cranford Nix test pressings that I stumbled upon during an eBay search.  They compile a huge amount (if not all) of his recorded work, as a solo artist and in various bands.  It's a prized possession of mine, since his music was a major influence on a few of my own folkpunk songs.

I have a few random test presses of friends bands and stuff that I was given in drawings and/or randomly.
