1. Recording and production: You spend time in the studio to record your album, and you tweak it until you feel it is perfect.
2. You develop and design the artwork and maybe also a digital booklet for your album – or have a pro do it. If you really want to impress your fans, we offer the perfect services for this. Please keep in mind that – for physical distribution – the back cover of your album needs to contain a GTIN barcode. Please see Step 5 for further instruction.
3. If you are not already a passenger on recordJet we suggest you register (for free!) as soon as you have finished mastering your album.
4. Three months before the scheduled release date, you can upload your release for pre-order on recordJet. On iTunes, releases will generally be available 48 hours after uploading. Most other stores need more time. Make sure to allow enough time for your album to be available in all stores before the scheduled release date.
5. Upon uploading your music on recordJet, you will receive a GTIN code (formerly known as EAN or UPC) for free, if you don#t have one yet. You can use this code to generate the barcode, which needs to be printed on your physical CDs. Then you can arrange for the pressing of your physical CDs.
