Start with tapes and CDrs. Small quantities. It will get you some contacts and experience. You'll also come up with a budget to do 'bigger' releases.

How much does it usually cost to release a regular black vinyl, nothing fancy,
just a normal one in 300 eks?

I quite like the new one myself.

Anyway I may release some tapes soon actually as I'm negotiating with one contact about releasing a tape of one of his bands.

I made the mistake of sinking a shit ton of money into the first two releases I did. It pretty much set me up for failure because there are so many bands I want to work with and now I can't afford it. I aimed to only release vinyl. Now I am releasing tapes, with the odd cd thrown into play here and there.

Be smart with your money. I also traded a lot of my stuff for other label's shit releases when I got started. I admit, I just wanted to stock the distro, but now that some cash and better materials are coming through here, I am trading most of that garbage off to people who would enjoy stocking it more than me. When you have money to fall back on, having quality stuff happens. Don't rip yourself off either. I screwed myself when it came to shipping orders. I didn't want to "rip" people off on s/h...but I ended up fucking myself royally. Don't do that...It's one thing to deny profit. It's another to put yourself in debt.

If you're aiming at a small label..ask around. Most people will share any info with you.

Well, then I'd rather buy a CDr than listen to some stupid myspace.

Best advice: be ready to loose money! Very Happy

But running a label - even a very small one - is something really enjoyable ... a nice experience
