How can I help / How do I register? E-mail
  1. Firstly contact me letting me know that you want to register / help.  (Sorry but since 26th August 2011 there's no longer any automated registration due to spamming and I don't have the resources to add spam prevention.) Contact me and I will send you a link to the registration page.
  2. If you have a large selection of a particular artist that has not been adequately covered make a note and let me know (when you send the above email if you want) that you'd like to work on this artist.

You'll need access to a scanner (any old scanner) or a decent digital camera and a lightbox or some way of avoiding flash glare.  You'll also need to be able to save images into jpeg format (maximum width 600pixels at 50% quality is mandatory).

We tend to pride ourselves on quality of content not quantity.  That is, we believe that each release should show more than just an LP cover (as these are available from any online shop or ebay).  If you're a fan then you would most likely be able to add some words to go with the images.

Front cover (main) image of Die Cut Covers : Hall of Fame : Die Cut Covers
Die Cut Covers :

Die cutting of the cover image or inserts is probably the most common technique employed to create gimmick covers. It's probably also in most cases the cheapest.

There are thousands of die cut covers. Here are a few of the more popular and best known releases.
