Before you can send your CD out for duplication, you’re going to want to consider its packaging. An effective album design can be the key to buyers picking up your CD in the first place. You certainly don’t want a generic looking cover to stand between your buyers and your music. So put great care in the message your package sends and what it tells your public about you.
At Tanglewood we’ve been designing album print work for our customers for years. Because your design is going to be handled by professional printers, it’s important that whoever is doing your design be familiar with the requirements of modern printing. The pre-press preparation for your printed material can be quite complicated.
