In order to be eligible for the Tools of Promotion with CD Baby Distribution, your physical CDs must contain cover artwork and a UPC barcode. Our distribution packages are recommended for albums only. If you are interested in distributing a project that contains a single track, we recommend signing your single up for distribution directly through CD Baby.
The Tools of Promotion with CD Baby Distribution packages can be purchased with any CD (replication or duplication) order that includes a packaging option that includes cover artwork. Bulk discs, jewel cases with no inserts, slim jewel cases with no inserts, etc. are not eligible for physical distribution through CD Baby. You must select a packaging option that includes cover artwork in order to add CD Baby Distribution to your order.
A UPC barcode is also required for distribution purposes. A UPC bar code can be purchased with your manufacturing order, or during your account setup with CD Baby. UPC barcodes can be purchased from Disc Makers or CD Baby for $20.00. CD Baby does not require that a UPC barcode be printed on your physical packaging.
