Q: I don't understand this. I thought that the postcard was going to be the record. I got 3 pieces a postcard, the record, and a picture. how am I supposed to mail this to my daughter as a postcard?Asked by Mary D., June 2020

in the photo it looks like the postcard and the record are one item. you put the postcard on the record player. This is not the case. I understand that I'm going to have to mail it to her but how do I do that with 3 pieces? Can't be mailed as a postcard.

by Mary D., June 2020

The postcards are more of a novelty to have a personal handwritten message from the artist that is being featured that month. I believe if you want your daughter to receive these you'll need to change the address on Cratejoy.

by Joshua B., June 2020

I don't have an answer for this question, but I was confused too. Maybe you have to mail the record itself? What looks like an actual postcard isn't good for mailing because the writing it so big. Maybe the postcard isn't actually meant to be mailed to someone??

Q: If I order this today, will the first one be delivered by Christmas? I live in Toronto, Canada. And are there are extra shipping/duty fees for orders placed for Canada? Thanks! Asked by Jenna R., December 2020

VINYL POST Record Club answered...December 2020

Hi there. December releases are set to go out on December 15th - 16th. They'll arrive before Christmas for US orders. Unfortunately, I'm not sure I can guarantee the same for any international orders as they can take up to 7-21 days to arrive. Although, I imagine Canada can be much shorter than other international orders.
There are no extra duty fees other than the postage you pay at checkout on CrateJoy. Thanks!

Unfortunately we couldn't get the cards to play on our record player and we only got 2/3 of the cards in the first three months of the subscription. It's also very hard to get a hold of customer service.

VINYL POST Record Club said...Mar 17, 2022

My apologies for the trouble, Emily. It sounds like your player has an auto-stop function and this is triggering before the end of the song. Most record players have an 'Auto-Stop' switch that can be toggled on and off to allow full playback as these records are smaller than normal LP's. Regarding the delays, we had experienced UPS delays with our February shipments as they were stuck in Germany with UPS for over 3 weeks due to COVID-19 / a customs bottleneck issue. They've since just been mailed out and we are back on our normal schedule.

Excellent!

This is a gift for my teen son who is a music enthusiast. He loved the first card/record. Contained an artist he was not familiar with but really enjoyed the music. The card came with one song on a very colorful card with artist bio, lyrics, and a message from the artist himself. The package was great, no damage. Overall it's a great sub, my son likes it and is eagerly looking forward to the next one. Thanks!

Very disappointed

The post cards could not be played on our record player and the person I gifted to could never access the downloads. I’ve tried to get into the account but it doesn’t recognize my email address.

VINYL POST Record Club said...Dec 30, 2021

Request for links to the downloads were emailed over at the same time this review was posted so I didn't have a chance to help them find them before this was posted. I tried to help Margaret resolve the playback issues with their turntable. It seems that their model was triggering the auto-return before playing these records. I sent 3 additional full length compilation records to make up for the issue so that they could still enjoy some of the songs that have been featured on our record club.

I received this and it came in an envelope
Which was fine :) honestly it was really
Cute, came with a little note on postcard from the artist, small bio, and record sheet. I haven’t played the vinyl record yet (there’s also a link for an online download in case you want to go that route!) I kind of just wanted to collect the vinyl record
Cards more than listen to the music. I had to cancel due to financial reasons and lack of Expendable cash, however “I’ll be Back” lol

Absolutely terrible! I paid for 12months for a gift and didnt arrive on time ever, some didn't arrive and the product that did arrive was nothing like listed.
They don't function as records and the "handwritten" messages some time are the only thing in the envolpe and sonetime aren't in it at all.
Absolute scam!!!
I contacted the seller for my money back with no reply.

VINYL POST Record Club said...Jul 17, 2021

We've received one email from Stacey in which we promptly replied in October of 2020. These were mailed to Australia from the US and as such took much longer to arrive, especially considering delays to global shipments due to COVID-19.
These releases absolutely do function as records and work on turntables. In fact, they're an old format called 'Flexi-discs' which have been widely used for vinyl releases since the 1960's. The video we provide on our listing is also an example of how these work.
Of the 1,000+ current subscribers, we've never received other complaints concerning missing 'handwritten messages' or incomplete releases. I've tried to reach out to resolve this issue or gather more details on which releases this occurred on but have not...

This is a great fun subscription box for anyone ! I gave this as a Christmas gift to my daughter & just renewed it! She absolutely ❤ loves it.
I will say you have to be patient with your first delivery because NOT ALL record players like the postcard-size. After about 10 tries you'll find that your record player WILL adjust and you're smooth sailing from there on out. Just be patient. ( I know it's hard lately 😆). THEN IT'S ALL NEW FUN MUSIC 🎶 TO DISCOVER!

February 2022 Postcard // French Cassettes – Good For It

French Cassettes music is filled with winding melodies that pop up unexpectedly but grab hold and don't let go... and may leave you asking "who needs hands with hooks like these?" The harmony-driven power-pop quartet's new LP, Rolodex, was conceived beneath a stairwell in the band's adopted hometown of San Francisco, where frontman Scott Huerta spent months staying up until 4 am, obsessing over elaborate demos.

November 2021 Postcard // Oberhofer – What Does It Mean To Me?

Chaos exists at the heart of everything. It represents the underlying possibility for change, growth, and evolution. As part of Chaos Theory, even the smallest fluctuation of a system's structural integrity may set a new course of events in motion. For as much as music relies on instruments, production, lyrics, and vocals, it also relies on chaos. This fact fascinates Oberhofer. Brad Oberhofer accentuates analog synth guided atmospheres with fifties-style crooning and cl
