National Gold Awards has been serving the Awards and Recognition
Industry since 1989 as a wholesale supplier, so you're buying
direct from the manufacturer. We're proud to make these coveted
Gold Records available to the general public for the first
All records, CD’s, labels, and album covers used to produce our products are original, vintage materials we have purchased on the open market. No reproductions of any kind are used, and supplies are therefore limited. We are selling this item as a collectible only. In addition, none of the copyrights or reproduction rights are being sold or implied. The custom made gold records sold here have no affiliation with, nor certification from, the RIAA. Our awards do not commemorate sales of phonograph records or sound recordings at various sales levels.
Are these "real" gold records?
Though not official RIAA awards, they are assembled with the same gold records used in the music industry. We start with an original, unaltered, factory released pressing of the album you select, mounting it with a specially designed gold or platinum plated overlay to create a one-of-a-kind tribute. (The grooves will not necessarily match since they are intended to be displayed, not played). Our exclusive overlay design allows us bring you some of the most sought after albums in music history, using the actual, vintage records and labels.
How can I request a special title?
Custom awards are available for your own band, or any music from Mozart to Metallica.
For Record Awards (with or without a CD) in the Classic Gold LP format, place your order
on the make a request page. Then, send us an original copy of the album. The condition
of the record is not important since we'll be mounting it with perfect Gold or Platinum metallic
overlay. (The grooves will not necessarily match since they are intended to be displayed, not played).
If the album is only available on CD, we’ll mount it in the center of the record where the label
would be, as is commonly done in the Music Industry today.
For other award formats, go to the custom awards page. There you can select from a
variety of styles featuring Records and CD’s. To place an order, contact us with a detailed
request for a customized quote.
What about custom awards?
We specialize in custom Gold, Platinum, and CD awards for the Music Industry & fans, as
well as corporate awards, anniversaries, gifts, and special events. A few examples are shown
on the custom awards page. Each of those styles are in-stock and can be made to order
when you contact us with a detailed request. We also have the capability to create awards
featuring any special design you’d like.
How is it framed?
We use a top quality frame with a gloss black finish, just like the Industry standard used for decades. (Other frames and matte colors are available at additional cost). Every detail is meticulously crafted, from the rich bevel cut matte to the glass face installed instead of acrylic. The result is a museum-quality gold record award designed to last beautifully for years and years.
How do I submit custom logos & mini album covers?
The ARA is the in-house authority we created for these Music Industry style
awards. It's the Academy of Recording Artists, proud to have you as a member.
You can, however, completely customize the look of the brass plate, including
changing the logo and adding a mini album cover. Simply select these options on the product
page when you place your order. Then, send the graphics as j-peg attachments to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can you print custom labels?
Yes, custom labels are available for achievement awards, gifts, and special events. A one-time $35 set up charge applies. Simply create your artwork and send it to us as a hi-res j-peg
attachment. The trim size for the LP records is 4 1/16in diameter. For the 45 rpm records, the
trim size is 3 9/16in. diameter. Place a small black dot in the exact center of the label artwork so we
can align our die-cutting machine. We also offer graphic design services for custom labels. A basic
design is $35, and includes the name of a “record company” printed in the top portion of the label,
and a few lines in the lower portion, such as a “song title” and artist.
Do you accept all major credit cards?
Yes, and for secure online shopping all credit card payments are processed through Paypal. You do NOT need a Paypal account to make your payment. If you don’t have one, simply select the box on the shopping cart for non-members. If you prefer to pay with a money order, our mailing address is listed at Contact Us. Sorry, personal checks and C.O.D. orders are not accepted.
