Made in Maryland: Nice Package Records


Vinyl is making a strong comeback, with the dozen or so presses in this country working at capacity. There aren’t any record pressing facilities in Maryland, but there is a company that will hand cut individual records for your project. Nice Package Recording Company will mix and master your music and cut it into a vinyl record, one track at a time. Listen to the story below about this boutique industry and the record pressing business generally.
