The release needs to be available on iTunes. Before you start creating artwork please refer to a specific iTunes release.
Artwork can be submitted for pre-releases so that it is available immediately on the release date.
You'll need to provide us with the iTunes url.
tip - to do this ctrl-click the album artwork in the iTunes Store
Number of Tracks
Back cover artwork in Sleevenote works best with standard length albums.
For releases with more than 28 tracks (eg mixtapes or compilations) we'd suggest that the default automatic tracklisting is the best option.
See the artwork guidelines below for dealing with up to 28 tracks.
It is recommended that track titles are as large as possible and take up as much space as your design allows, this makes for generous "hit-areas" for the play buttons.
tip - consider utilising more horizontal space by putting multiple songs on the same line
Bonus and hidden tracks
Sleevenote offers the chance to put more importance on album tracks.
tip - consider hiding bonus tracks to put more emphasis on the original programming of the album (tracks will still play through as normal)
Releases with many tracks
For compatibility with all sizes of device it's recommended that releases with any more than 14 tracks are split into columns.
Releases with few tracks
If a release has few tracks (e.g. a single or EP) you can get creative with the space, for example there could be a photograph of the artist.
We encourage you to include label logos but suggest any other smallprint is removed.
Please remove the barcode unless it is integral to the design.
File size and type
Please work on your file with as many hi-res and vector elements as possible.
Export an RGB png or high-quality jpeg at 2,400 x 2,400px.
tip - Sleevenote uses iTunes provided cover art so you might want to check colours match exactly with the iTunes store image
Submitting artwork is free for low-priority turnaround
