    Duplicate titles

    If you upload finished artwork which already includes Release Title and/or Artist Name, you will need to toggle Text is visible to OFF (GRAY) so that any additional text remains invisible.

    Cut off titles

    If your Release Title and/or Artist Name extends beyond the border, please select a smaller Font Size.
