CD Duplication & Replication
For over 20 years making a CD has been the most cost effective way to deliver a physical music product. We make CDs with replication as well as on-demand duplication for smaller urgent projects.
Whether it’s a short run CD duplication project where time is tight or large-scale replication, our CD manufacturing plants in the UK and mainland Europe combine fast turnarounds with consistent high quality and competitive prices to produce millions of CDs every month.
We provide you with a full end to end service from initial concept and design to distribution and delivery. We also include a EAN barcode so you can sell your CDs into retail.
DVD Videos and Audio Cassettes…
In times of YouTube and vimeo we are surprised to see an increased demand for physical video media. Whether it is simply Live footage, a collection of music videos or a band’s ‘behind the scenes’ expose DVD and Blu-rays have become again an exciting addition to a deluxe release in special packaging.
In addition to the manufacturing itself, we offer full authoring and pre-production services for every conceivable target format.
We also offer a fully bespoke audio cassette manufacturing service. With a choice of shell colours and direct printing or labelling options as well as custom length chromatic tape, we give you a full turnkey solution for this fantastic retro product.
CD Duplication vs. Replication
In essence CD Duplication and CD Replication are two entirely different technologies. Whilst both produce media with with your content on, Duplication records the content into a reflective layer using the laser of a drive whilst Replication produces the same medium by process of injection molding. In respect of data integrity and quality the two mediums do not differ at all. A Replicated disc is pressed from polycarbonate granules and after being coated with an alloy, it is printed with your artwork.
There is a ‘start up’ cost for replication, which includes making the stamper. Usually Replication is more economical for larger volumes and compared to duplication may not be cost effective on orders under 500 units. Quite often printed parts take longer to produce than the discs, so depending on the packaging options, Replication typically takes 10 – 12 working days but express options exist to reduce this to as little as 5 – 7 working days. So in a nutshell, if you need your media fast or don't want to do too many, go CD duplication as your option for pressing.
