OnlineRock Announces Short Run CDR Service
Professional Way To Market Your Music

SAN CARLOS, Calif., March 2, 2003 - OnlineRock is proud to announce that they now offer a short run CDR service for musicians. With this service, the thousands of bands and musicians that make up the fastest growing music community on the Web can rely on OnlineRock to produce high quality, professional looking CDRs for distribution. For as little as $1.40 per disc, this service is a cost-effective way for music professionals to spread their music to the public.

"We are always trying to find new ways to help members of our community get their music heard," says Steven Beck, president of OnlineRock. "This service is perfect for songwriters and bands who want to market themselves in a professional manner."

Using the member's CD master, OnlineRock will produce the short run on high quality Taiyo Yuden CDRs, and they will verify each disc for quality. All CDR runs include 74 minutes of music or 650 MBs of data from the CD master. In addition, using their full color 2400 DPI jet printer, OnlineRock will print high quality images directly onto the CDR and then insert them into a protective paper/cellophane sleeve. Slimline jewel cases are also available for an additional charge. OnlineRock ships all orders within five days of artwork approval and payment verification.

As an additional part of the service, OnlineRock also provides their members a way to express their creativity in the design of the CDR artwork. For those customers who want to use their own artwork, OnlineRock will print it on their CDRs free of charge. For those less graphically inclined, OnlineRock can have in-house artists create an eye-catching design for anywhere between $25 and $75, depending on how advanced the desired artwork is.

The uses and benefits of short run CDRs are many. "This new service provides musicians with the opportunity to use their CDRs as demos, radio station promos, ad or jingle spots, or gifts for family and friends," says Beck. "They can also sell their CDRs directly to fans at clubs and gigs, and most importantly, sell them at our OnlineRock Music Store!"

In addition to their short run CDR service, OnlineRock also offers a CD manufacturing service for larger runs, enhanced CD ROMs and graphic design. Visit for more information.
