Zach Weeks - Mastering Quotes and Project Submission

Mastering Services Quote & Project Submission Form

Hello! Previously I used a Google Form for project submissions & quotes but over the years I have found it to be extremely unreliable with information getting buried and inconsistent notifications.

Note: as mentioned elsewhere on the site, a breakdown of my standard rates can be found on this page.

As of April 2023, I am typically booking out mastering projects three to six weeks in advance.

If you would like a quote specifically for mastering,
please email me at with at least some of the following information:
