Why you’ll love the 12” vinyl record  

When people say vinyl, they often refer to the 12-inch vinyl record because it’s the most popular among the three. Here are some reasons why musicians choose the 12-inch vinyl record:


  • Made for full albums. These were originally made for full albums so they have around 30-44 minutes for 33 rpm and 24-30 45 rpm. It’s just right for a full album.

  • Great sound quality. It has more space between grooves resulting in greater dynamic range if around two or three tracks are pressed per side.

  • For limited editions. Most full albums at least require two 12-inch vinyl records. You can try releasing a limited edition with chosen tracks, and bonus tracks perhaps pressed on one 12-inch record for your limited vinyl edition.

  • Etchings. If you have an album that can only occupy half of Side D, then you can try having an etching on that side instead. This way you can add artistic value to it and you won’t feel like you’re wasting space. Etchings can also be done in smaller sizes.
