Making Your Own Music And Album Cover Artwork

Album Cover Artwork

When making your own music as a musician, whether it's new artist, midlevel, or superstar, you have a big involvement your your album cover artwork. You still have to ask for it. This means in your contract when you sign with a record label. In the music industry, this process is called consultation. The label and you or your band have to go through an approval process. The next step is approval. This means you can approval the artwork that the label prepares. When you have approval rights, the label has to please you with submitted artwork or you can stop them from using it. Remember that every little detail in the music business maters. When you get the rights to creative artwork, make sure that you have an adequate budget. If you are at the superstar level you get %100 creative control on your cover artwork. A normal budget for artwork for your cover is between $20,000 to $25,000. Some cases, the label will exceed the maximum amount of your budget. If they do make sure, that in your contract you are not charged against your royalties.
