Finally coming in the home stretch of the “Songs About Packaging” project. Recording is now all done and packaging is almost done. I went with DIY packaging with re-purposed materials from my own personal recycling bin. Ties into the whole “Litter Rock” gestalt of the project and dovetails nicely with the limitations of my budget.
I expect to have enough of them assembled in time to distribute them for free at the landfill gig. (If you’re going to be in NY area on Saturday, Sept. 26th and would like to attend, follow this link for more info.)
CD label and side sticker are ink-jet printed on kraft paper. The white UPC is a separate label. I got my bona-fide UPC number via CD Baby. (Since I don’t expect to be putting out enough products to justify paying the $760 fee to GS1 for my own “company prefix number” any time soon.) I figure I might as well stick with these labor-intensive, DIY handmade covers for the foreseeable future. If S.A.P. ever threatens to go platinum or anything, I’ll re-evaluate at that time…
Lyric booklet is that kind of 8-page booklet that you can make from a single sheet of letter-sized paper. (Another ridiculously labor-intensive part of the project.)
(One more “product shot” after the fold…)
