Flexi discs have become increasingly popular in recent years. They have been used as promotional tools since the days of The Beatles, but have enjoyed a revival recently along with a general rising interest in vinyl.
Since the 1950s, the fexi-disc has been a greatly under-appreciated format of recording sound. During its pre-eminent years, flexis were primarily used as promotional tools and other sorts of voice recordings. The medium took a completely different turn in Eastern Europe, as iron curtain nations had banned popular music. What started on the back of discarded x-rays turned into postcards and have become a highly sought after collectable item today.
By the 1990s, production had halted drastically, and by 2000, they were gone. However, in recent years, the old-is-new-again crowd has brought this once dead format back to life. Bands like The Kills and Bayonets!!! are producing them, magazines like Decibel are including them in their pages again. And if you’re looking to have some printed up, you can totally do that too.
At Northern Record Pressing we offer both one and two-sided flexi discs in a wide array of colours as well as vinyl postcard flexis. Below you will find some of our current flexi disc specials and package deals.
