Personalize Your Vinyl

Are your old vinyl records gathering more dust than playtime -- and yet you still can't seem to part with them? Whether you twisted to the Beatles, swayed with Aretha Franklin, danced with the Dead, two-stepped with Loretta Lynn or boogied with the Bee Gees, artist Jeff Davis will personally turn your old LPs into these hip, stylish and custom-made record bowls that will put a new spin on your favorite artists. Handmade in Philadelphia.

Disclaimer: Not every record successfully transforms into a bowl. There is a small percentage of loss due to vinyl composition and age. If the bowl made from your record does not meet our high standard of quality, we will attempt to replace the record, but cannot guarantee an exact replacement of the album. If we are unable to create a record bowl or replace it with a similar version, you will not be charged for it.

      Comments about CUSTOM RECORD BOWL:

      I have received many compliments on this unique gift. I use it decoratively, but it may be used to hold small items. Friends have asked me to order some of these for them. I chose a very colorful record from my vinyl collection and used the custom service. It was delivered as promised, and looked better than I even imagined it would.

        This was great, awesome way to take those unused records and turn them into functional art.
        Great for those Baby Boomers who love their vynl (but don't mind destroying it in the end)

              We supplied the LP and received the "bowl" back in time for the Birthday celebration. Both my husband and I were pleased with the product!! We almost thought of keeping it!

                I had this made as a gift for my nephew. He is in a band, and I used one of their albums. It was done in a timely manner, and is awesome! Perfectly shaped! I can't wait to give it to him!

                Really unique gift and everything looks good. Only drawback was the very long turnaround time between order and receiving the product. And when we received the final package the box was very dented, thus instilling panic that it had broken. It turned out fine and the product was okay, but definitely could have gone in the other direction the way the box looked.

                  Comments about CUSTOM RECORD BOWL:

                  This is a very unique and an eye carching product. Great conversation piece. Very much liked by recipient who is a vinyl record collector.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Your ordering and delivery process leaves much to be desired. Not being able to order or even communicate with the artist made the process very difficult and awkward. Having your slow to respond staff play the role of middle man will prevent me from ordering this type of gift in the future. Your process made for an unnecessary delay between order and delivery. You need to fix this.

                        great fun unique conversation piece. Love that I was able to send a record to have the specific record I wanted. Only drawback is that you can't actually put food in it. It would be fun to be able to use it for popcorn or something. But it'll be a neat conversation piece and is a very personal gift if you know a record the person LOVES.

                            I used an album that belonged to us as children. This was a birthday gift for my sister and she loved it. The best part was the scratch that we managed to "add" when we were kids. It was still visible on the new bowl.
