Anyone know what it really costs to press CDs these days? Press 180g vinyl? Cost for a catastrophic evening reception at a gallery that can hold 125 persons? (Sent from my iPad) Looks like some pretty creative accounting going on there.... If the IRS got hold of that, they would tear her a new one... Her cost for pressing CD's should be less than 10% of what she declared. Oy!
