A unique personalised print showing a year of music - a picture of record cover spines for albums and singles released in the year of your choice (all records are pictured at the same height). We fill the print with the albums and singles that were top sellers - the print is a great discussion starter!
It's a brilliant gift for music lovers - choose the year they were born or the year they started following music. You can include your own optional messages too.
- A unique way to display popular music for a year
- For each record, we show the artist and title - see the gallery images for examples
- Two optional messages (see image gallery for an example)
- If there are records you specifically want to include on your print, tell us when you make your order
If you want to specify all the albums on the print or you want albums from more than one year, click here.
How may records fit on each print size? And how big does each record appear?
A4 prints show 40 records. Larger prints have larger text (obviously!) but they also show a few more records.
- size A4 - records appear about 11 inches high
- size A3 - records appear about 15 inches high
- size A2 - records appear about 21 inches high
- size 12x16 inches - 42 albums - records appear about 14.5 inches high
- size 16x20 inches - 46 albums - records appear about 18 inches high
For comparison, a real LP cover is about 12.375 inches high.
Prints have a pale grey border around the picture of the records, canvas prints have a dark grey border.
NOTE: This print is NOT a photograph. The colours and fonts used for artist/title/year are not necessarily the same as the original album release. The text on each album spine may be printed in upper or lower case text. Records are shown in a random order.
Who would love this print?
- A music lover
