Things You Need to Know About Cover Art

Sure the sizing and pixel values are important when making your album artwork. But while I was reading this article I discovered somethings you aren't supposed to do.

And I have to say I've been guilty of these. Good to know.

Here's what you CAN'T include:

-email addresses, URLS, contact info (this includes Twitter handles), pricing
-stickers from your artwork from a scanned copy of physical CD
-something that suggests format of the release "CD, DVD, Digital Exclusive"
-cut off text or images
-an image that’s compressed into one corner with white space
-names of digital stores or their logos
-words that express temporality, like "new" or "latest single"
