Acer Records is an independent record label, based in Hazel Grove, Greater Manchester, England, United Kingdom.

Originally named after Tim Scott's private studio facility – Acer Studios, it was set up initially in 2002 for the recording and release in 2003 of his debut album Bald on the Inside,[1][2] and as a front to administer the publishing rights and distribution of his solo compositions.[3]

Bald on the Inside was distributed through Borders Books & Music Stores throughout the UK. Backed by a UK-wide in store CD signing tour, it generated enough sales to put it occasionally inside their top 200 sellers list.[4]

The name was changed to Acer Records in order to separate the label and the underlying core company in 2008 with the release of Tim Scott's second album Guitar Mashing [5]

The grouped release of the Amy Jane, Angel Dust and 4:AM singles and the digital release of Bald on the Inside all in November 2009, were all encompassed under the Acer Records umbrella.[6]
