Making Your CD's Look Professional
by Tyler Cohen

As your fan base grows, you are going to want to make yourself look more professional by upgrading the quality of your CD's. Yes, you can sell CD's that are burnt from your computer on generic discs from your local discount store. You just may not sell as many as you could if they looked a bit more professional.

Fortunately, it is fairly easy to get professional looking CD's of your bands music today. The first option is paying someone else to do the work for you. Services, like Copy Cats Media, offer professional quality mastering and CD duplication at an affordable price. Usually, you can buy small quantities at a slightly higher per piece price than buying larger quantities so you don't have to warehouse a huge stockpile of CD's.

The advantages to using these services are the facts that the work is done for you, everything will be packaged and ready to sell just like the CD's at you local music store. The bad thing is affordable means different things to different people. Many services charge $20 or more per track to master an album and this doesn't include the costs of purchasing the extra CD copies for your inventory. If you don't have the extra money, you might have to take matters into your own hands.

Actually, that's not such a bad idea either. With services like CDPrintExpress, you can get blank CD's with a professionally printed image on the face. In many cases, these services even offer a graphic design team who can create an image for you if you don't already have one. Once you have the printed CD's, it is an easy task to load your CD duplicating tower and burn your music onto them. Make an investment in a few jewel cases, print some inserts with matching cover art and you are ready to go.
