Risks and challenges

Citrus Records would like to release a 2 disc CD and press 1000 copies to start. To do this we will need funds to pay for all aspects of the production from start to finish. Below is a list of the process and a step by step of the cost and time involved for this production.

Contact and collect music from all bands
Furnish contracts and legal documents if requested
Master the music at a recording studio (est cost: $100.00)
Work with graphic artist for CD artwork and posters (est cost: $500.00)
Work with CD production company order 1000 CDs (est cost: $2200.00)
Mail out cost, promo and ads (est cost: $200.00)

The risks we are up against are many.
1. There is a chance the CD will not sell and we will be stuck with boxes of unwanted product.
2. There is a chance that the bands may not deliver the music and time lines may not be met.
3. There is a chance the CD's may not be pressed and produced to our standards and quality.
4. Artwork may come out inferior.
