Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you located?
Vinyl Revamp is run from a rural studio just outside Tauranga, New Zealand. We don’t have a retail store so sell exclusively online and deliver worldwide.
How long does it take to get my order?
All art is made to order in our studio. We endeavour to have your order ‘out of the door’ within 5 – 7 working days. Often it’s quicker than that but it depends on how busy we are and what season it is.
Delivery is on top of production times and is by NZ Post which takes approx. 3 days for NZ orders. For worldwide shipping estimates see our shipping page.
Do you offer free shipping?
Yes, on New Zealand orders over $150. Sorry no free shipping on international orders.
Do you do personalized designs?
Not at present. However if you have an idea for a design please feel free to contact us and we can put it in our ‘suggestion box’
Where do the records come from?
We source the records from second hand shops and records shops around New Zealand.
What do you do with the label?
After we have cut the record we spray the label with a special semi gloss paint that blocks out the writing on the label making the records look much more attractive. Please note that any designs that cut through the label do have a slight ‘burring’ along the edges where the cut is. This is due to the label being made of paper and being stuck onto the vinyl for many years. We do our best to minimize this but it isn’t 100% avoidable.
Do you use a lazer cutter?
No. Using a lazer cuter on vinyl records creates very dangerous and corrosive fumes. We do know some businesses use lazer cutters but our health is more important. We use a combination of cutting machines and hand finishing tools.
What are the wooden art sizes and designs?
LP’s are quite small at 300 mm (12 inches) diameter so due to demand for larger art pieces we have introduced larger sized designs made from top quality mdf and painted with a dark matt (blackboard) paint. The medium size is 450mm x 450mm and the large size is 580mm x 580mm.
These larger sizes look fantastic either on their own or in groups of 3 (or more).
To buy the larger designs just select the size you want from the product page and then add to cart.
