Q: How much do music premiums cost?

Q: Can I customize any of the product in the Sunset Special Products catalog with new artwork, titles, stickers, etc.?
A: We are able to do this in certain instances. However, all requests must go through an approval process that includes legal/contract verification, pricing, etc. Certain releases have specific contracts stipulating that the release cannot be altered from its original form. Furthermore, many artists do not consent to premium packages. These projects are handled on a case-by-case basis; please contact your local USP Director of Sales for more info. The entire process usually takes at least a month, sometimes longer.

A: We have a dedicated A&R team constantly scouring the vaults for vital new releases!
