Here are a couple more photos ( part I is here ) from my visit to the Erika Records pressing plant back in September.
In the printing department : holographic covers for Tool’s perennially best-selling Lateralus album
Boxes of labels
Cool scraps on the wall near the printing presses
Engineer Richard Simpson, cutting a master on a Neumann VMS-70 lathe
Neumann SP-79 console
Just a few of the many picture discs on the wall in the office – Erika is the USA’s only producer of picture discs
They can make just about any size and shape, too
