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 to use the Vinyl size file.

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 MA.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 MA.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.
