MAKE Vinyl is a collaborative initiative with Kickstarter. Through MAKE Vinyl musicians enjoy support from the Qrates team, which has expertise in budgeting, designing, pressing, fulfilling, and distributing vinyl records. The Kickstarter Music team will help set up your projects for success with pre- and post-launch tips and if needed, feedback on your projects before they’re live.
How MAKE Vinyl Works
- Between June 5 and August 1, 2017, draft a music project within Kickstarter where at least one of your rewards is a vinyl record. Be it a 7”, 10”, or 12”, any project with vinyl as a reward will be promoted to Kickstarter’s international community of music fans.
- Once your project draft is ready, share it with Kickstarter at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Kickstarter team will review all the projects and be in touch if they have any feedback.
- Launch your project the first week of August, and when the projects are live, Kickstarter Music promotion will begin. Throughout the month, we’ll celebrate your projects and encourage our backer community to check them out.
- Projects in the MAKE Vinyl campaign can use promo code KICKSTARTER05 for a 5% discount code from Qrates to be used towards pressing and fulfilling your project.
