What material do you use for your albums? Also, who prints them? I am about to release my album and am searching for options. Also, would you be selling a physical copy of this one?

Oops, only just seen this;) (better late than never huh haha)
I use a 230gsm card for the CD sleeves, a photographic paper for the colour inserts. For the booklets I use double-sided HP C6818A Professional Glossy Inkjet Paper. Outer sleeves are 'vellum' and the CD's themselves are white, full face printable. I do all the printing myself on two printers, it's a lot of work!
There won't be a CD for A Haunting Sun, unfortunately the label won't allow it. New label, new rules.
To be honest it's something of a relief, as the amount of work that goes into designing and printing the damn things takes up so much of my time;)
If you have a little money, then you might be better off going to a professional company to get a small run of CDs printed, say 150 copies, in a digipak format, akin to my Treefella EP. That was designed by me but printed and manufactured by mediashack (which is a UK company only, but I'm sure there will be similar places online for the US)
Hope that helps man, sorry for the late response.
