HOW WE DO IT
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.
