What is a repress request?

Updated 3 weeks ago by Support Team

For Customers

When a project is no longer available for order, customers can request a repressing by clicking on the "vote for a repress" button on the project homepage. This notifies the artist of their fans interest in a repressing.

By clicking on "vote for a repress" users can let an artist know they want a second pressing of a project that is currently unavailable for order.  Users can also see how many other customers have requested a repress.

How many votes are needed for a repress?

Ultimately the decision to offer a repress is at the artist's discretion. However, Qrates offers cheaper pressing fees and faster turnaround time for repress projects. Artists: For more information on how to create a repress project, please check out the following article.
