Artifix Records is a punk rock label from Southern California. Artifix was started as reissue/vintage punk label. All of their releases are from 1976 through 1983 with few exceptions. Johnny Stingray of the Controllers dubbed them "The Archaeologists of Punk" which is a title that the label still uses to this day. Artifix Records was started in 2002 and is still releasing vintage punk today.
During late 2006 and early 2007, Artifix Records was contacted to participate in the filming of What We Do Is Secret, the Germ's biopic. Artifix Records supplied unpaid extras, crowd audio, and acted some days as punk fashion experts to help get period clothing down correctly on film. Although Artifix Records is uncredited in the film, they are listed in the extra-long "thanks" section of the credits. In May 2008 through August 2008, Artifix Records supplied original records and other materials for the Vexing (East L.A. punk rock) art show at the Claremont Art Museum. In 2009, Artifix Records sent the same materials to Guadalajara, Mexico when the Vexing art show goes on display there.
