Superior Record Pressing Corp., Somerdale, NJ

Profile:
A pressing company that operated in Southern New Jersey through the 1970s and 1980s. It opened a sister plant in Tempe, Arizona during 1979.

Superior's LP pressings can be identified by the following:
- Pre-1971: 2.75" pressing ring, center labels on super-glossy (Kromekote) stock
- Post-1972: moved to humped approx. 2.75" pressing ring plus smaller approx. 1.390625" pressing ring, with paper labels duller coating

Superior's 7" pressings can be identified by the following:
- 1971-72 singles fromMotown and sublabels, plus some other labels, alternated between the use of IBM Selectric Composer Univers fonts and those of Linotype Helvetica and Intertype Vogue Bold (example).
- ca. late 1970s or 1980: Superior-pressed 45's contours, especially the label area nearer to the spindle hole, resembled those of Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Santa Maria, but were thicker and a bit heavier in comparison.

On both vinyl formats, some releases can also be identified by either a "TC", "TVC", or a "TVCA" etching, which may be the initials of the technician who processed the metal parts used to press the record. However, it is unknown whether these are exclusive to Superior pressings.
