Pre-mastering is the process of getting your audio ready for the vinyl lacquer cutting stage. If your audio is already
mastered for vinyl, you will not require pre-mastering services from Disc Runner.

Lacquers and Stampers
Once we have your pre-mastered audio in a suitable format for vinyl manufacturing, we're ready to cut the lacquers. Lacquers are actually made out of an aluminum plate that is coated with lacquer. Your audio is physically cut into the surface in real-time to produce a "master" image which will be used later in a process called "electroplating" to create the actual stampers used to stamp your final records.
Once your lacquers are cut (one lacquer is required for each side), the lacquers are used to produce the stampers through a process called "electroplating". These final stampers are what we use on our presses to mold your finished record.
Disc Runner will be running new state-of-the-art Vinyl presses. These fully-automated record presses use cutting-edge modern technology to improve the vinyl manufacturing process!
Labels and Sleeves
We print the centre labels in-house on our offset press and offer B&W or Full Colour centre labels. Centre labels are baked in an oven prior to going on press in order to reduce moisture content in the inks. Our labels are not adhesive labels (i.e. not stickers). They are baked (molded) right into the record during the record manufacturing process.
Disc Runner can print your inserts in our fully-equipped in-house print shop. We offer a range of different inserts, folders and booklet templates to choose from. We also offer a range of inner sleeve options, including plain white paper sleeves, plain black paper sleeves, poly-lined white of black inner sleeves, and even custom-printed inner sleeves (with or without a centre hole cut).

Plastic Card Manufacturing
Let authorized guests in, keeps others out! Access cards provide a level of security for your industry and your clients. Provide keyless entry into parking garages, workplaces, and hotel rooms in an easy, safe and secure way. For the first time - and every time, your tenants, lodgers, employees and guests will have peace of mind, and an everlasting impression of your business.
Plastic business cards look and feel like credit cards, so your customers will perceive them to have a higher value - and they are less likely to discard them. Plastic business cards provide a high impact for a relatively small investment. Leave behind a business card that is durable, retains its beauty, will not wrinkle, and help you stand out!
There's no better gift than one that you can choose yourself! Gift cards allow customers to pick a selection from your store - cash free. Retain the loyalty of existing customers and let them introduce you to their friends!
Build brand awareness, every time they open their wallet! Attractive, unique, and distinctive, gift cards are perfect for any business - retailers, restaurants, florists, salons, spas, and more. Gift cards can be used with or without a computerized P.O.S. system and can be adapted and customized to your already existing computerized system.
Protect your business or facility by identifying exactly who belongs and who doesn't. With demand for security at an all time high, it's critical for employees, students, visiting VIPs, and anyone setting foot on your grounds to be quickly and easily identifiable.
Whether a club, association or organization, membership cards provide your members both secure identification and special privileges. Unique and distinctive membership cards show your members how much you value them and entitle them to special, valuable offers. They will feel like a VIP every time they open their wallet.
A long distance calling card that works as a marketing tool, phone cards allow them to make long distance calls, cash and credit free. They provide cost savings, convenience and privacy. Pre-paid phone cards are a lucrative point-of-purchase market as well as an effective marketing tool including premium incentives, fundraisers, traffic builders and a way to show appreciation for their business. Connect with your customer every time they take their card out of their wallet to make a call.
Give your card a personalized touch. Add individual serial numbers, names, or any other information you need to each card. Custom text can be digitally printed on each card.

Mixing and Mastering
Audio mixing is the process by which multiple sounds are combined into one or more channels. During this process we are able to manipulate the audio sources signal level, frequencies, dynamics, and panning, while adding effects such as reverb and delay to create space and depth.
Mastering is the process of preparing and transferring recorded audio from the source containing the final mix, to the source from which all copies will be produced (duplication/replication).
Mastering requires not only the tools to facilitate the process but also the technical knowledge, critical listening, and an accurate listening environment. Through corrective equalization, dynamic compression, noise reduction, we can make your individual songs sound like a CD that flows from one track to the next.
