do you mean you want new 78s pressed??

no one offers this, although a guy by the name of dean
blackwood (along with the late john fahey, working
with their revenant label) did get a few 10"
microgroove 78rpm releases pressed somewhere in
california about 5 years ago. they were made of a
compound resembling the old shellac-type disks. i
don't know who did the job (mastering i think was done
in nashville by an old timer with a 78 cutting lathe),
but it shouldn't be too hard to find-- there aren't
many companies pressing 10" vinyl anymore.

if for just general 12" record pressing, record
technology in california is pretty awesome:

others in no particular order include:

europadisk, long island city, ny

wea manufacturing, olyphant, pa

united, tennessee

a+r record and tape mfg., dallas, tx

rainbo, california

trutone, hackensack, nj

music manufacturing services, toronto, canada

i may be missing a couple guys, but the above is about
the only vinyl manufacturers left in north america

hope this is useful
