TuneCore Partners Up With Amazon
Added to the current offer of international digital distribution via Amazon MP3, TuneCore has announced a new service that provides on-demand global physical distribution via CreateSpace, expanded marketing exclusive to TuneCore Artists, and a TuneCore-branded section of Amazon.com.
With no upfront manufacturing costs, TuneCore Artists can set their own sale price and distribute their physical CDs worldwide on Amazon.com, according to the company. Their CDs will be manufactured on demand by CreateSpace, part of the Amazon group of companies. When a release is ordered at Amazon.com, CreateSpace manufactures the CD complete with a CD booklet, tray card and jewel box on demand.
Each title is shipped and fulfilled just like any other Amazon.com order and is eligible for expedited shipping options. Coinciding with the launch of these new features is the TuneCore Art Tool 2.0, enabling artists on the fly to create customized full-album artwork from within their TuneCore account for free.
