Who we work with.

These are the valued partners we work with to get things done.


GZ Media

Our main production partner, GZ Media has been one of the EU's leading vinyl pressing plants since 1951, consistently pressing some of Europe's most iconic 12"s. They've used this time to constantly improve; incorporating bleeding-edge technology into packaging capabilities that allow Qrates artists to make objects that look, feel, and sound incredible.



Whiplash Merchandising has multiple centers in the US and UK that Qrates users can choose to direct their product and minimize shipping costs. They work with all industry-standard carriers and offer optional storage to our artists, even after a crowdfunding or pre-order campaign has ended.


150+ stores worldwide

Qrates takes great care to cultivate relationships with our network of 150—and growing—retail partners. We work with all of them closely because walking into a record store, chance discovery and recommendations by real people are all a big part of what makes vinyl such a special experience.
