So that's weird!

The Laser Etching & The Label:

"Note: We advise pressing a laser etched record with a label on both sides. Pressing a record without labels or with only one label may result in undesired warping or "pull-thru" on the center hole".

Any enigma is easy once you know the answer...


Exactly. They insisted that they use a label and we couldn't get them to budge. a lesson learned. Then on top of that is this ultra-fail with wrong color labels and weird etching in the EU. Total bummer. It's not our fault

Um, well, ... the wrong color labels (dark grey) and the weird etching is present on US versions too (all discussed here in the last posts). Wink

Maybe black labels are unobtainable?

If the labels are needed the graphic project must be tackled in a different way, don't you think?

I believe one of the earlier (U.S.) posts said the label was 'translucent' or 'semi transparent', (despite being grey. I don't think the white ones are see-through at all....) so that was probably the intention..

Translucent: permitting light to pass through but diffusing it so that persons, objects, etc., on the opposite side are not clearly visible.
So it would always have been junk!

Yes, although as your picture shows, (please ignore the roller marks for this ''demonstration''...) it's not as bad as the white one and if the image wasn't negative the effect might not have been too bad....

Your words it makes me understand that you don't have Absolutely Free US version.
What you see in my pic is the etching on the "paper" label that I could make visible by positioning the light source in the right way.

With daylight you would see only a blank label.

Yes, you're probably right. As your picture had the American version I was just trying to understand what the original intention was....
