For nearly three decades Mastercraft Metal Finishing, Inc. has provided the music industry with superior quality metal stamping plates for pressing vinyl records. From majors to independents, we specialize in delivering the highest caliber product along with excellent service.
After you have a lacquer master of your record made, the next step is to have a stamp or “mother” plate made for pressing copies on to vinyl. Plating is an electro-chemical process that deposits nickel onto a thin layer of liquid silver solution that is first applied to the lacquer. The "mother" plate can be used to make a number of stampers, each of which is good for approximately 1000 vinyl records before degrading.
