    what to put on the back of a cd

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hi,
    I was looking at the back of several cd's to see what should be written on ours.
    ex. Written by, 2005, etc.
    what exactly is the c and p with a circle around it? Is that copywright?

    Is there a site or can anyone tell me what information is supposed to be on the cd? I know it varies, but I want a basic idea.

    thanks,
    evt

    A price label.
    The fact that no one understands you doesn't mean you're an artist...

    2. Copyright date
    3. Publisher
    4. Produced by?
    5. Some cool photos or design.

    I think the P in the circle is about who owns the recording as opposed to the songs?

    Also consider including:

    artists website address

    artists email

    a bar code if you think you might sell in outlets where they'll use it (eg a record store).

    Here's an excellent link to a site which I made use of, and recomend to anyone thinking of doing their own CD project:
