Paper + Plastick is an indie record label, founded by Vinnie Fiorello, mostly known as the drummer for Ska Punk band Less Than Jake, but also co-founder of the label Fueled By Ramen.


Announced in March 21, 2008, the label launched on May 30, 2008[1].

As explained by Fiorello, the idea behind the label is to rejoin the music and the visual art that once came inseparably with it. In an article by punk news website, Fiorello is quoted:

"Paper and plastic are the source materials of my releases, if you think about it, prints and books are the paper side, while vinyl records and toys are the plastic side. It's a simple and to-the-point concept. First and foremost, the world has enough labels signing pop bands, Paper and Plastick doesn't need to since it will focus on the visual side of music - collector vinyl, vinyl toys, limited edition art prints, books, and most importantly, bands I love and respect. When a label is small, it can focus on projects and not have to mobilize a dozen or so people. There are so many bands that I run into nowadays that seem to be in this vacuum of modern music, far away from Teen Pop and Nu Metal, not wanting to sign to a major and tired of self-releasing. It's those bands, from old friends and new friends, whose music I want to release."

The label announced three new and first releases: Landmines' self-titled debut album, Andrew Dost's concept album Columbus, Gatorface's EP Sick and Stupid and The Explosion's final recording, Bury Me Standing.

The label released Landmines' self-titled album on vinyl and as a digital download via iTunes on July 22, 2008.

On February 25, 2009, the label announced the signing of Lansing, Michigan punk rock band Cheap Girls to the Paper + Plastick roster.[2]

On June 29, 2009, Alternative Press reported that New Bedford, Massachusetts punk rock band A Wilhelm Scream had signed to Paper + Plastick and would release a 5-song 12" EP in the fall mixed by Matt Bayles.[3]
