I’m facing an issue: what should be the correct (first front) cover art for a release with a sticker ? The “front” cover art, without a sticker, or the “front” + “sticker” (or “obi”) cover art?
On my side, I do prefer covers without stickers or anything else: they are relly nicer, clearer, etc.
Plus, in my opinion, the sticker is “external packaging” as it’s something usually sticked on the plastic film of the cd package, so not a part of the front cover art itself.
But I must admit it’s not only a matter of taste, as the sticker is a really distinctive part of the release when bought new.
So, what’s your opinion?
