Maybe They Could Put The Lyrics On A Website And Just Include A Link?

I’m doing some album artwork right now for a metal band. It’s a job I wouldn’t typically take, but the guitar player is a good friend’s brother, so I’m doing the job at less than half of what I would normally ask.

We are fitting the album credits into about a half-inch below a photo on the back of the jacket.

Client: “Our names look pretty small. Could you make them a little bigger?”

Me: “Yes, but not by much; we don’t have a lot of space to work with.”

Client: “On second thought, that’s probably where the album’s lyrics should go. I’ll send them over to you.”

He proceeded to send me a fourteen-page Word document full of Tolkien-themed song lyrics that he wanted to be included in the half-inch on the bottom of the album back.

It took a little while to explain why he should think about an album insert for the lyrics.
