Get a head start on your next project with our biggest deal to date!

Crowdfunding

Start with 10% completed

Press and Sell

20% off the pressing cost

We’re making Qrates the destination for music discovery and limited edition vinyl releases.

Now, Qrates is taking one step further in supporting artists, bands, and labels in their ability to create and sell vinyl records.


For a limited time, Qrates will back 10% of your vinyl crowdfunding project's goal quantity to help it succeed.

Plus, the profit from this 10% of records is yours to keep!


For Press & Sell projects, Qrates will discount 20% from the pressing fee.

(For Repress projects, the fee is even cheaper as there is no cutting of new lacquers!)


To join in and make more vinyl, you only need to create and start your project

between February 17th and March 31st and opt into this campaign.


Vinylize your music with Qrates!
