One of those small little tricks that gets lost on many bands that are going the DIY route is a simple little trick that saves a few bucks and makes life easier. Odds are you are uploading your music to the net via TuneCore or another site like it they are going to be giving you a UPC code for your release. Time and time again I have seen artists not realize that you can indeed use the same code on your CD/LP and not pay for a new code. Simply go to a site like this one, copy and paste in the UPC TuneCore gave you and save the PNG file it gives you and drop it into your album layout! Easy!
