Fidjit How much would you pay for a CD? (84* d) RE: How much would you pay for a CD? 24 Oct 10

Well my studio time. A whole weekend. ca 20 hours or more.
Cost me SEK 2000,- = 190 = 300

Cost of running off 100 CD's in Jewel cases with inlays and back and inside pages of colour printing.
Came too SEK 4000,- = 382 = 600

Total cost for 100 CD's SEK 6000,- = 575 = 900

Cost for 1 CD = SEK 60,- = 5.75 = 9

Not included in the costs are the following.
Difficult to access the costs of these items.

All the practice for getting the songs up and running to record.

Cost of Guitar strings (and Guitar. And Concertina)

All the art work and photos that I mostly did myself for the print work inside the Jewel cases.

All the mileage by car backward and forwards to the Studio and the CD production team.

All the Blood, Sweat and Tears.

All the freebies sent to Magazines (that don't print a word about it)

And the ones sent to Folk Radio Stations that never get to play a single track. (Too busy with Kate Rusby, etc. Again).

All the promotional CD packages sent to Festivals and Clubs in the hope of getting a gig.

All the extra replacement Jewel cases.'Cos carting them around they are liable to get cracked and broken.

How can you put a price on that. As part of it all goes with the Gigs involved whilst getting it all ready.

My CD's cost, Ten Quid. OK ?

Still have some left. Stop me and Buy one.
