UP early and at it…loads on my list for today.
First job is checking in and getting a quote from the CD manufacturer I’m using for the album. I need to sort a barcode and some other stuff before I can finish the artwork.
Also, I need to chase Help Musicians for a logo to include…I’ve emailed a few times and my contact is normally really good at getting back quick. I’m concerned my emails are getting lost along the way. I call and speak to someone who asks me to forward the email form the same address…it doesn’t arrive either. I try sending from a different address and…success! My contact gets back to me in. less than ten minutes.
The postie brings the magnets I need to finish the outstanding stock for the village shop but I have to get on the bike to the doc for a blood test before I can do the merch.
When I get back I finish the merch and take it to the shop.
After lunch I sort some photos and then get on with the album package and on-body CD art.
Having not released anything in a physical format for about five years, I’d forgotten how time-intensive album packaging artwork can be…it’s nearly 9pm by the time I stop for the day.
