About

Hi! I'm Josh. I love discovering and sharing new music. In fact, I've spent the last 10 years tirelessly seeking out new artists to share on my playlist / blog, BIRP.fm

Just last year, I created a unique vinyl subscription service as an extension to BIRP called VINYL POST. A monthly record club that features limited-edition 5" x 7" vinyl postcards. These cards can play on your turntable and feature a message from the artist on the back. 

Now, I'm looking to expand this project by introducing affordable compilation record plans starting at $12.99 plus shipping per month... but I need your help!

Introducing VINYL POST compilation subscriptions

Each month, I'll be selecting around 10 tracks to be featured on a compilation record. Each release will feature original artwork and will be pressed on color vinyl. Mostly featuring selections from up and coming artists featured on BIRP.fm. You could think of it as a monthly "Best of" playlist but pressed on vinyl.  For those who don't follow BIRP... you can expect lots of music from these genres: Indie, dreampop, lofi, alternative, shoegaze, chillwave, etc. 

There will be three plans available as listed above.

Vinyl Postcards: $5/mo. (Plus postage: U.S. $0.49 / Elsewhere $1.15) Already available at VinylPost.co

Compilation Records: Pledge $14 (Payment for your first record and a reserved spot in our record club. After successful funding, you'll be emailed details to set up your subscription and pay for shipping for your first record. Subscription after will cost $12.99 to $14.99 per month + shipping depending on if you choose 1-month, 3-month or yearly billing. Shipping: U.S. $4 / Elsewhere $13

Compilation Records + Postcards: Pledge $18 (Payment for your first record/postcard and a reserved spot in our record club. After successful funding, you'll be emailed details to set up your subscription and pay for shipping for your first package. Subscription after will cost $16.99 to $18.99 per month + shipping depending on if you choose 1-month, 3-month or yearly billing. U.S. $4 / Elsewhere $13)

Your pledge acts as payment for your first record and as a reserved spot on our subscription service (Limited to 500 for the first month). After the fundraiser ends but before the first record is ready to ship, we will email everyone details to sign up at VinylPost.co. There you will pay for shipping for your first record (U.S. $4 / Intl. $13) and set up your subscription plan. After that, you'll be billed automatically and will receive a new record at your doorstep, each month! 

Risks and challenges

We've done a lot of preparation over the last several months to ensure that there will be no delays on our end regarding production of the records. In fact, volume one is already in production and we've reached agreements with artists and musicians for future releases, arranged warehouse / shipping solutions, etc.

We are expecting a turn around time of 9-10 weeks and should be receiving the records in early February. Sometimes production can take a bit longer because of high demand but we will keep you guys in the loop if we're notified of any delays.
