Vinylize X Record Store Day X Crosley

Vinylize redesigns the Snellen Eye Chart

This year Record Store Day celebrates it's 10th anniversary with a poster designed by Vinylize. 10,000 copies will be printed and shipped to record stores across North America.

The poster was designed by Zachary Tipton and Bettina Gál. "I was visiting Dr. Dave of Urban Optics in San Luis Obispo, one of our top clients and he had an eye chart that featured chairs. It dawned on me that we need a Vinylize version!" says Zack on where the inspiration came from.

The copyrighted poster features 26 existing turntable models and include Crosley (sponsor of the RSD event), Uturn, Pro-ject, Tesla, and Gramovox among many others. The key which reveals the make of each turntable can be downloaded from Vinylize.

The poster is based on the Snellen eye chart developed in 1862 and named after the Dutch ophthalmologist Herman Snellen.

Record Store Day is an annual event inaugurated in 2007 and held on one Saturday every April to "celebrate the culture of the independently owned record store". The day brings together fans, artists, and thousands of independent record stores across the world. A number of records are pressed specifically for Record Store Day, with a unique list of releases for each country, and are only distributed to shops participating in the event. 

Vinylize introduces the Vinyl Exchange

To kick off Record Store Day's 10th anniversary we are introducing THE VINYL EXCHANGE.

As founder Zachary Tipton says "People are always contacting us about recycling their vinyl so we decided to make it easy for them and also offer something in exchange."

We recycle about 3 metric tons of vinyl per year and most of this comes from personal collection and distributors. By clicking the link above and filling out the form we can quote you a value for the vinyl you wish to recycle.

In general we organize and pay for the shipping. We can get a better price since we ship so much of it around! Once we receive your vinyl we issue you a discount code (pre-agreed upon) that you can redeem on our webshop. Values vary anywhere from 25 Euros to 250 Euros depending on the location, quantity and condition of the shipment.

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week

In collaboration with Konsanszky Vinylize sets eyewear trends for SS17. Today, spectacles are more about being seen. Glasses have become a staple fashion accessory. Trendsetters all over the world are now wearing glasses daily – whether they really need to see 20-20 or not.

Model Vinylize Anouk is bold and edgy, yet elegant and refined. Simple by design, sophisticated by nature.

Sheila is a Vinylize nod to the classic design of the sixties and seventies. 

Vinylize Wilson (on the left) round and serious, but with a touch of class as girl's boy frame. The lively form will rock you. Vinylize Ella (on the right) has a well-balanced form with curves and edges. Fine accents on the hinges give it a feminine touch.

Vinylize Howl hides the eyebrows with raised rims and compliments the cheeks.

Camaro, squarely explosive.
