Costs
This is a non-profit project, so the price you pay for this 2-CD production is how much it costs us. It's determined by the base cost of the actual completed product cost, added with the actual packaging and shipping costs, and last combined with the cost of processing your payment. There is a break down below that will show this clearly.

I've asked on the forums what people might prefer, and it seemed 'Digipak' was the preferred choice. The cost difference is $1.50 USD. Do keep in mind, the actual cost of CD production is from a quote and the shipping from the manufacturer is estimated. When real figures are available, this page will be updated.
