CD Artwork refers to all the paper parts which make up the CD packaging plus any designs or text which are printed onto the Disc Surface.
Supplying CD Artwork
If you are supplying artwork for us to use on your album then a print-ready PDF is our preferred artwork file type. Once your artwork is ready, send it over to us. It is essential that the artwork is correct before we start making copies. To ensure everything is correct with the artwork, we will send you a final proof to approve before printing. Do not worry if you are not an experienced graphic designer, our artwork team will work with your artwork files or brief to make sure your finished discs look as good as you imagined.
The packaging of a CD gives the first impression and indeed makes the most impression visually, so it’s important to get it right. 4 Part Music offer you a huge range of options from Jewel cases to digi-paks and card wallets, whether you need 50 or 50,000 units. We can even create customised designs so your packaging is a real one-off.
Our standard packaging option is the Jewel case. For this we print on the CD surface, the Rear inlay and the Booklet which will usually comprise of 4 pages, the first of which forms the front cover visible through the jewel case when closed.
