tips on one sheets for new labels

hi all,
anyone on this forum have some experience making a one sheet for an album or a single to give out to retailers and distributors? i am a startup label. my label genre is primarily hiphop (for now). also, is there a different one sheet for a 12" single vs for a full length album?

most of the stuff i see in examples are marketing/selling points with statistics. we ll i got no statistics. hard to give examples of selling/marketing points when you are starting off. not sure how to fill up the space. any suggestions?

Hi Electric,

'One Sheets' are pretty easy really.

Basically it's just 'one sheet' of all the really important information that a distributor needs in order to sell your product into the shops.

Key Points:
1. Label Name
2. Band Name
3. Album/Single Title
4. Release Date
5. Format (CD/Vinyl Album, 12", 7", CD single etc.)
6. Catalogue No. (for all formats ie. if both vinyl and cd are being released)
7. Barcode No's for all formats. (It also helps, but not totally necessary, if you can add a clear, scannable copy of the barcode to your one-sheet.)
8. Dealer Price (PPD)

And then just a nice short blurb (bio) about the artist and what he/she/they have been up to. (And don't be afraid to throw a little hype in here...)

Kind of a simplification, but hope this helps.
