THE VINYLPOSTCARD

Sponsor Video

Inspired by the vintage record postcards that were sold in the 60ies and 70ies, we redeveloped the idea of this format. Back then, the cards used to be manufactured with a hot-foiling process, resulting in weak sound performance, short durability and cheap feel. Something that is great as a gimmick but never convinced as a valuable product.
