Ordered. What does “hand-numbered to order.” mean?

I daren’t look Gabby! I just go in, grab, and get out as quick as I can, then worry later. I have spent SO much on PSB this year and I think last - yet nothing has arrived yet! Petheads are certainly patient 😄

*currently at 1741 sales, haha

Me too - I panic buy and worry about it later. Sometimes, like just now, I think too late about maybe ordering 2 copies. Hindsight being 20/20 and all that.

Looks to be "fair" in so far as it's not too late in the day for EU and people just getting done from work in the eastern side of North America, so hopefully there wont be too much grumbling about the timing of the drop, and (more or less) everyone can have a stab at buying it. Nothing worse for me than waking up to a PSB drop that sold out in the wee hours of the morning because of where I live.

I Googled - I think it means it has a little window on the cover where someone will write 0001/4000, 0002/4000, 0003/4000 and so on....good luck to the poor sod who has to do that!

I imagine though it saves in printing each one individually. I think a lot of limited things are done this way.

I have a few Blood Records releases and it is exactly as you describe. Not always on a box though, sometimes just written on the back cover at the bottom.
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|

If I had a record player I’d be all over this. Good thing I don’t- I don’t even want to think about how much $ I’d have to spend to start an entire PSB vinyl collection!

I just grabbed a zoetrope I already have and said a similar thing when I ordered. On the back of this vinyl cover it’s handwritten at the bottom in sharpie style pen 1579/3000

Imagine 0001/4000 i’d love that! I will definitely be more in the 100’s

Ordered. I hope the new album will be a great one....if not, then I'll either retain the record sealed in my collection or sell it off.

Hi. What kind of "strobing light" should I purchase? Can I find it on Amazon, or similar e-shops?
