    So I'm nearly finished with the last 2 tracks of my album, the others are already mastered and ready to go. Tomorrow night I hope to finish, then probably by Tuesday/Wednesday I'll have 2 redbook ready cd's in hand.
    I have the artwork I plan to use either completed or in the works.

    My questions are these:

    -does anyone know of a place I can go to for printing the inserts and getting the discs pressed? I plan to run 500 copies, I really would prefer a place that will do a comlete packaging job, numbered, shrink wrapped, etc... ready to go. I live in Toledo Ohio, but I dont really think locality is important. Quality, speed, and reliability are the most important factors. Would 2 weeks be out of line here? My original release date was planned to be August 26, my 30th birthday, and that's looming ever closer.

    -I'm making a list of potential magazines to take an ad out in. I have a tentative collaborator to buy space with. The list of magazines in my price range and in my genre is pretty short. What I dont have ready access to is information on podcasts, college radio stations, etc.. that play industrial/IDM/experimental type of stuff who I can contact for promotion and/or send a copy to. I dont really know how to go about this part, but I have an idea. Know what I mean?

    Any ideas or any information you think may be useful to me I would sincerely appreciate.

    There are all kinds of good places to get your material done.

    I would suggest you contact Jeff Picoult at Wavewerks here in Cleveland. http://www.wavewerks.com/ Jeff does outstanding work and is very reasonably priced.

    Best of luck!

    Thanks for the links guys. Very much appreciated.
    Jeff from Wavewerks emailed me this morning, I'm going to give him call when I have all the artwork together. His pricing is good.
    :cool:
