Adding text on the cover
With some extra charge we can send you via e-mail the artwork you buy (all the files) with your name (or logo) and album/single title on.
If you choose this option, please keep the text as minimal as possible and make sure you send us 100% correct names and titles, because we just copy and paste and we are not able to make changes.
If you choose to add text, please read very carefully the following:
1 . We use only very simple and easy to read fonts (see examples below).
2 . We place the text where we believe it is best, in order not to harm the design of the artwork.
3 . We send you only one cover proposal, and that’s it!
4 . We are not able to make changes after you receive your files with the text on.
5 . We can use only LATIN ALPHABET FONTS.
6 . If you have a logo that you want us to add on your cover, for best results please send us a vector file. If this is not possible, you can send us a high resolution image file (on transparent or solid colour background). We take no responsibility for bad results if your logo is of a poor quality. Do not send us a photo of you – a photo is not a logo.
7 . If you want to include (a) featuring artist(s), you can use the words “with” or “featuring” in the “artist name” field in the Add Text Form.
8 . We use larger fonts for the name of the artist and smaller fonts for the title (see examples below).
9 . You will receive your files with your text on via e-mail, within 3 working days (if all info you send us is ok).
10 . You can choose to use lowercase or capital letters (send us the text with capital or lowercase letters and we shall copy and paste it).
11 . You have the option to choose and ask us to use large fonts or small fonts.

You can use the vinyl size file of your unique artwork and make a beautiful book cover.
**Please note that sometimes dimensions and proportions are hard to match, so for this file our designers carefully select the most interesting part of the artwork.
IMPORTANT: Please test before you print!
Our covers are carefully made and taken care of, in order to offer you a great quality product. But, if you intend to print the artwork, we recommend that you print a test copy first. We take no responsibility for bad printing results. Please bear in mind that the quality of prints depends a lot on the printer factory and its equipment, the kind of paper etc.
If you decide to print your cover in a large format (on banners, posters etc.), we suggest using the Vinyl size file.
All covers are made with GIMP and INSCAPE apps.

100% satisfied from Music-Artwork.com!
The cover worked great for my project and all the files that were included helped the promotion of my music very much. I could print vinyls, post on social media, make a poster for my concert… I had everything i needed. Thank you Music-Artwork.com!
My students love it when i play the guitar.
We sing altogether and record ourselves, so we have made a wonderful CD with the recordings! We got a cover from MA.com that looks so professional! Kids and parents were amazed.
Our choir recorded some songs and found a lovely cover for this project on Music-Artwork.com
We printed CDs and some vinyls. Our friends loved the professional results!
These covers are so beautiful!
I have been inspired by one, bought it, and then composed a song. That was so cool!
I found a great cover for my new album in Music-Artwork.com
I did not have to pay a lot, or to wait for someone to make it. I browsed the gallery, i downloaded the files and i started promoting and distributing my music. Fast and easy!
It is so easy now!
I make a song on my home studio, i buy a cover the same day from MA.com and i can start promoting my new music immediately!
It is very hard to find a good graphic designer in the city where i live
Music-Artwork.com was an excellent solution for me and my band, when we finished recording our second album.
