CD Duplication Overview

CD Duplication Machine

Duplication is the cost-effective way to produce short runs of CDs, i.e. runs of less than the 1,000 minimum quantity required for a pressing run, or larger runs that are required urgently. The process differs from pressing in that the discs are made by burning onto blank CD-Rs (recordable CDs), using our state-of-the-art automated duplication systems. Because there is no expensive Glass Mastering involved, the initial setup cost is much cheaper than pressing. However, the unit price of the discs is slightly higher, so there is a point where it becomes worth considering the pressing option if turnaround time is not critical. Duplication is not subject to the long lead times involved in pressing, so we can turn jobs around in a few days, or even the same day by prior arrangement. If you need great-looking discs quickly, then our duplication service is the way to go!
