I'm interested in carve some vinyls of one project or another, but I fear getting it overpriced. What's the most suitable vinyl carving company? I don't really mind if the quality isn't 100%, if it's not bad, I just want the cheapest service after all.

I'm not sure on the term "Carve" but i'm guessing what you mean is people who DIY cut records? In which case this is your best starting point is to talk to folks from here:

"Pressing" is the most common term for it, as the mother (the mold that they're pressed in) is what is carved, not the records themselves. Might help you if you're searching for businesses to compare prices.

You'll find that prices vary based on what you want - just a stack of records might be cheaper from one, while getting them in jackets/with covers printed is cheaper from another.
