Adding digital art files to a CD for Replication

You know how you can rip CDs and get the album artwork with the rip? This is what I want to achieve. I have a cd that is very near completion with the audio and packaging design. Can anyone out there tell me how to make it so that this cd, after replication will be able to rip with its digital artfiles?

The artwork is not on the CD itself. It is submitted online just like the track and album information. When someone puts the CD into a program like iTunes, the CD information is collected and then the software looks for a match to it in the Gracenote database and pulls the track listings. I am not as familiar with this process for album art, but I do not nothing is on the CD itself.

I know that if you sell your music on iTunes, your album artwork is uploaded as part of your music files and then hosted in their database. I am not sure how to get it "up there" other than this.

Hope that helps with something! Let us know if you find a better answer as I would be curious what the answer to your question is.

Best of luck....
