Delivery Options

Christwill Music offers several delivery options for you to choose from. The options available for each item vary due to licensing agreements. You may select only one delivery option per item but may have different delivery options for each item in your shopping bag. To order multiple delivery options of the same item (i.e. a hardcopy and a download of the same item), please submit separate orders, one for each delivery option.

 

Shipped CDs

Burned Hardcopy

Christwill Music is equipped with state of the art in-house burning capabilities for ripping thousands of entire CDs. CDs ordered using this delivery method are created in our production facility and shipped to you. Christwill Music is fully licensed to do this and it is completely legal. The CD face is printed with Album Title, Copyright, Track Listing, and Christwill's contact information. You also receive a printed cover and a rear case insert that includes track information. The lyrics (where available) are printed on the back of the cover and insert. These CDs arrive in a CD sleeve, not a jewel case. Once purchased, Burned Hardcopy CDs are non-refundable unless defective (please see Warranty & Returns Policy).

Jewel Case Studio Hardcopy

On some occasions burned hard copies are not available due to licensing or other restrictions, so we offer a Jewel Case Studio Hardcopy. Jewel Case Studio Hard copies are CDs created by the recording studio, much like you find in a retail store's music department. These CDs arrive pre-printed from the studio in jewel cases with printed inserts with lyrics (where available) as well as case inserts. Jewel Case Studio Hardcopy CDs are non-refundable unless defective (please see Warranty & Returns Policy).

 

Digital Downloads

Please take advantage of our Sample Downloads to listen to and test with. THESE SAMPLES ARE FREE, BUT ARE TO BE USED ONLY FOR TESTING YOUR HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE FOR COMPATIBILITY.

Christwill Music offers two digital download options. Please be sure to select the correct download type to fit your situation and system setup. All digital downloads include all tracks available for the particular CD, lyrics in a PDF file (where available), and jpg image of the CD case cover. Each purchased download is available for 30 days or 5 downloads, whichever comes first.

 

MP3 Download

MP3 downloads are usually ready for download within 15 minutes. These downloads include access to all available tracks for a particular song, PDF lyrics (where available), and JPG image of the CD case cover.

An MP3 player is not required for the use of an MP3.  MP3 files will play in most standard computer audio programs and can be used to create a CD which can be played in stand-alone CD players.

MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3 (MP3) is a digital audio encoding format using a form of lossy data compression. It is a common audio format for consumer audio storage, as well as a de facto standard of digital audio compression for the transfer and playback of music on digital audio players. MP3 is an audio-specific format that was designed by the Moving Picture Experts Group.

 

Ogg Vorbis Download

Ogg Vorbis downloads are ready instantly. These downloads include access to all available tracks for a particular song, PDF lyrics (where available), and JPG image of the CD case cover.

OGG VORBIS FILES DO NOT PLAY IN MOST STANDARD PC-BASED PROGRAMS. For a list of Ogg Vorbis compatible players please visit http://www.vorbis.com/software. Our suggested player for Windows users is Winamp (which you can download for free). It will play Ogg Vorbis files as well as create a CD which can be used in standard CD players. Winamp's help section has a great step-by-step guide for burning a CD.

Vorbis is a free and open source software project headed by the Xiph.Org Foundation. The project produces an audio format specification and software implementation (codec) for lossy audio compression that is intended to be a replacement for the proprietary MP3 format. Vorbis is most commonly used in conjunction with the Ogg container format and it is therefore often referred to as Ogg Vorbis.This format is favored by audiophiles and high-definition sound users due to its superior sound quality.
