    Here are some figures regarding shipping fees, it's actually much cheaper than I thought:

    Germany - $3.50
    Denmark - $3.50
    Great Britain & Northern Ireland - $3.50
    France - $3.50
    USA - $4.00
    Canada - $4.00
    Indonesia - $4.00
    Chile - $4.00
    Argentina - $4.00
    Brazil - $4.00

    So the total cost would be around $9 or $10 USD (depending on number of copies)
    The medium used will be Taiyo Yuden Silver Printable CD/DVD, made in Japan, for archival use (actually these are on sale in local shop, 100 pcs for $53). I have excellent experience with Taiyo Yuden media, nevertheless, all discs will be of course triple-checked for errors and burned on Lite-On burner. *yes*
    Booklets might be tricky, for slim DVD case it's easy as the inner diameters matches A5 size, but for jewel case ... :dunno:

    Yes, insured tracked envelope :thumbsup:

    Sorry to drag it on, but this is how it may look when completed (of course different artwork & title & stuff). All printed on laser colour printer, but it's a pain to fit in those jewel dimensions. It was in fact printed twice :rofl:

    This one displayed is my personal fan-made album

    We can't really swing that right now but possibly later. I'd actually like it if we all collaborated on a commercial project so that we could get an influx of capital for our other endeavors. Food for thought...

    Hello mates. :hug:

    I´m just talking with Andrew and the physical release idea is really great. :wink:
    I missed some advances here, so by reading all this now I´m thinking that there´re some things that need to be arranged.
    The first attempt for releasing -still open for discussion on the post- was all digital, a tracks+art package available for free download.

    So as you know, I´m in charge of that front cover. Because the digital domain, in a first approach I was thinking in a large high resolution art -some sort of wallpaper-ish format- plus a preview/thumbnail format for phones and small playlist displays. Also a CMYK version for printing the art in a T-shirt or whatever, if you want it. This is what I can commit now.

    If we get physical (sounds sexy :rofl: ) and everybody wants to add their own 'song inside art' for the printed version, it´s a whole new thing and needs to be arranged well. We need to work with fixed resolutions, color spaces and sizes (because all have to fit in the case eventually) and consider that every case has limitations of space. Also, I don´t know if every artist wants to create/submit an individual art, and I don´t know if I can handle/design 15, 20 or 30 individual images for each song... we don´t know yet how many tracks are going to be included in the album, and for that we need to wait for all the submissions and the final selection/mastering stages, so... :dunno:

    Yeah, there are a number of things that would have to be a bit different between the digital and a physical version of the album.
    That's why we have to move forward step by step. Main focus right now is to get all the tracks compiled and finish the first version of the digital release including the specific artwork just for that.
    Anyone who has a good idea like Andrew here should bring it on, but let's keep stuff that goes beyond the current guidelines at a brainstorm level for the moment. It will be much easier to work everything out as the project moves along. :mates:

    What I like the most from the current submissions is how independent and honest work sounds all together…
    I love to think that some guys around the world plug themselves in some kind of audio reality and bring this creations back ….
    I feel a warm wave of empathy towards the artists, the album, the forum and the whole thing itself !
    BIG UPS !

    Taiyo Yuden is one of the best quality discs you can buy. Good stuff. :thumbsup:

    Again the question is how would we even bankroll this? :dunno:

    thisis theend
    I completely agree with you, let's get the foundation in place. *yes*

    Rolma
    Same here, it's going to be a brutally honest independent album representing a stellar community. :mates:

    If I understand Andrew correctly, he would simply check how many members would be interested in getting a high quality disc version.
    Then all of those would pay for their own copy, and he would get them done and send them out around the world.

    Spot on, thisis theend
    I would probably need the 24bit masters as well, to make high quality dithered and noise-shaped 16bit wavs to be put onto CDs (DVDs), I'll talk to Someone, if that's possible *yes*.

    Don't feel bad Catalyst.

    Let's just be happy that we have such a great friend as Andrew here.
    I think there's a pic of him next to the word unselfish in the dictionary :mates:

    So just a little recap:
    Want physical album? Send in PM to me, in a sense "I want CD" or "I want DVD", whatever, just to count people who are interested.
    To make it clear, digital is still a priority, but when I begin with the counting today, then 1 month ago after digital is released, the number of people interested in this would be very valuable for determining the final cost of physical copy.
    Thanks! :thumbsup:
    That's all for this 'physical' topic. *yes*

    Guys not much time left for submissions so put those finishing touches on your track and get it to us. I might make another thread to remind people submissions end very soon.
