There is still a shortage of vinyl pressing plants today, according to independent artists and organizations for the past decade or two. Despite the surge in vinyl record sales and began obtaining pressing contracts in masse, Jack White recently decided to consider building their own production facilities to mitigate this economic impact. Even though they are not doing that yet, a monthly record subscription program is.
The Boulder, Colorado-based business has begun construction on a massive 14,000-square-foot facility in Denver that will "open by the end of the year for production, tours, and special events. Third Man Records in Detroit is a 10,000-square-foot warehouse, thus VMP's location is significantly larger.
Last year, VMP had 80,000 subscribers, a figure that was steadily increasing. However, its unclear whether the facility will be producing records that won't be sold exclusively to VMP customers, but a press release indicated that it will be an "experiential space" that allows visitors to see how records are made; instead of food, theyll be cooking vinyl.
