For a band or solo artist, releasing a CD is a big accomplishment. After hours of choosing songs, practicing and recording, musicians often celebrate this accomplishment by holding a CD release party. This party not only serves as a celebration, but as a major promotional event to get the word out about the album. Fans and fan clubs of major artists also hold CD release parties to celebrate the launch of a favourite artist. When it comes to invitations for a CD release party, there are a number of options to consider.

If you are a band member with an upcoming party, make personal invitations for all of your acquaintances, friends and family. While it may be very time-consuming, a personal invitation can go a long way with someone to make them feel important and like she's wanted at the event. Send out the details of the event with a handwritten note from you letting the person know how much her attendance at the CD release party would mean to you. If you have time, follow up to the people with a phone call invitation reminder as well.
For those who are celebrating the release of a favourite musician's CD with a few friends, there are many creative ways to get the word out about your party. Make handmade invitations with the party details and design them to look like concert tickets. Another option would be to make a mix CD of live performances of the artist. Burn enough copies of the CD for each person you'll invite. On the outside of the CD case insert, place a picture of the artist along with the party details. List the tracks on the inside.
Whether you are the actual artist who wants to invite masses of people, or a president of a large fan club who needs to send a CD release party invitation to all members, consider sending it by e-mail or through social networking websites. This can serve as a fast, reliable and effective way at spreading the word about the party to large numbers of people at one time. Since this method lacks a personal touch, be sure to effectively convey the details through the invitation wording. One advantage to this invitation method is that several social networking sites and websites designed for sending e-invitations make it easy for people to RSVP in one click.
