Hello

I am planning to release solo album next year,
I have opportunities to work with a producer/label, but for some reasons I would like to do everything by myself.
So I am thinking about releasing my album/music via distribution platforms such as tunecore, cdbaby, etc

On the other hand, I would like to release this solo album on vinyl.
To be honest, I don't' have so much idea about how to do, it might be complicated. But I am not afraid to try if I got precious informations.

Do you guys have any informations or experiences ?
I am just afraid that it must be on a label or something complex related to the "music business"
I am looking for a good combination between online distribution + several vinyl copy.

This is personal project, so I don't really expect millions sales or something, more something personal.
Album on streaming, and a few copy of vinyl on sales online or if I play gigs.

If you got any recommendations (links/advices..) I appreciate.

Thank you.

Just order a printing at your local vinyl plant. Most of them accept audio in any digital form, mastered or not.

Thanks for answer,
It seems to be fine this way!

In this case, I will not be able to sell or make deal with any local records shops I guess.
It will be just like "generic vinyl" since I can not provide bar-code and without contract with a label ?

Generally, you don't need to deal with a recording label. There are companies selling barcodes, you can get barcodes from a distributor, a marketplace, like Amazon.

Also, since you are releasing musical recordings, you may consider registering ISRC. Never did that myself, though.
