In recent months, we've had queries regarding prices.
We believe in transparency, so here's an idea of what you're paying for:
We select albums from one of four major record labels. To get an idea of fair pricing, we pay attention to other suppliers that operate independently (like Rough Trade). We cannot and will never be able to compete with the prices of Amazon. Nobody can.)
On average, vinyl selected for our boxes will retail at a minimum of £14 (for Stylus Choice boxes) and around £18-19 for Stylus Experience boxes. However, the overall average is more like £17.50.
We work with the UK's largest on-trade wine supplier and are both experienced in the world of wine. On average, wine selected will retail for around £9-12. And, it will be a rare ocassion where our wines can be found in a supermarket.
We send you a monthly magazine by email. This takes research, and time to write and design. We love this and care about it. We also send you a sleeve print in each box. Again, someone has to create that. It costs. But we think it adds value to the box.
Packaging and shipping
The price of this is factored into what you pay each month. At the low end, packaging costs around £2 per shipment. As it stands, shipping costs £2.92 per box for Stylus Choice and £9.11 per box for Stylus Experience (higher for alcohol carriage).
So, all we're asking is to bear this in mind. We make very minimal profit, when you also add in the price of the design and time to curate each experience.
