More than just a records company.
The VinylshopUS online store was opened in 2008 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The founder Sam and his wife Evelina are avid vinyl collectors, it all started from a purchase of one collection from a local DJ of 2,000 collections, then growing over to 200,000 pieces of Vinyl records, all coming in all of forms media and sizes.
With this much of a collection, it's foreseeable that some records would be subject to wear and tear or some would be unplayable.
We didn't want to throw away media and become part of the world's waste. We thought long and hard of a green initiative until we found the perfect way to repurpose our collection.
We created a sample of cut out vinyl based on the city of Atlanta and listed it in our store. Our customers found it unique, creative and very much appealing that it became a trending item and people were making custom requests like there's no tomorrow. And that is how the repurposed, upcycled collection came to be.
Today, VinylshopUS makes customized designs based on our customer's preferred font, text and image. We give them the option to choose the record to be used, along with the color of the record, we even have framing option for those who would like one.
We now ship over a hundred repurposed vinyl records on a daily basis and we plan to grow our collection and our customers more for 2018. We hope that you'll be part of our family and community for years to come!
