A one-sheet is a document (one piece of paper in length) that a distributor uses to sell your album to retail stores.

Some information to consider including on your one-sheet:
- Information about your release.
- A little info about you as an artist or your band.
- A photo.
- Contact Information
- Dealer price.
- Formats of release.
- UPC code
- A small quote from the press.

Some things to remember when writing a one-sheet:
- It must be clear, concise and to the point.
- It is supposed to be a professional document, so use standard/legible fonts and stay away from extreme decoration and overly creative designs (it's not an art project).
- Don't make the main font too small or too big.

A simple search online will reveal many examples. Notice how some are overly creative though.
