    I've got a cover sheet, bio, etc. etc. on 4 sheets of standard paper per press pack. What can I use to put these together so I won't just be handing over loose sheets of paper? any suggestions?

    I'd suggest a cheap paper folder with a nifty band sticker on the front. If you have some money, you can have somebody print up some custom jobbies with a band logo embossed on the folder, but all that's really necessary is something to keep everything together. You can also slide a demo in there, plus a business card or two. I like to cut a little slot in the folder flap for the business card to sit in. Good stuff.

    Thanks! I just wasn't sure a folder would look professional enough. Should I just paper clip the papers together?

    Don't worry about making a "standard" kit. What you want its a kit that fits your target audience. Sounds like you are on a good start. My initial thought is that is too much paper. Most people that read these read a lot of them, so keep it short, complete, and to the point. I would say a GOOD black and white band full sized band photo, a one sheet bio, a business card, and a three song demo that is a cross section of your music. Make sure your demo is labelled with contact information and track listings. Put it all in a folder with band sticker and you are set.

    Make sure your bio lists your music genre (don't say all styles or unique, put a description), venues played, bands that your band has played with, and maybe a few quotes from industry people.
