Disc duplication is the process used for copying discs quickly and is ideal for CD and DVD under 500 units. Disc duplication is direct disc to disc copying and printing. We duplicate directly from your supplied master disc to quality blank discs using a duplicator and then print and pack according to your requirements. The discs are printed using either full colour inkjet or thermal picture print and can even be printed with individual serial numbers or barcodes using our Disc Publishing Service.
This disc duplication method allows us to print the discs ahead of receiving the master content, it is very often the case that the artwork is ready, but not the data or content until the very last moment. Disc duplication is the fastest and most versatile way of producing smaller quantities up to 500 units. It is ideal if you have several master discs and need different quantities of each or if your project is time critical. Quantities under 500 can often be turned around same day.
This combined with our ability to print card wallets and digipacks inhouse means you won’t be left waiting for your order!
CD | DVD | Blu-ray Disc Replication Service
Disc replication is used for larger manufacturing runs and is ideal for CD, DVD and Blu-ray orders over 1000 units. Disc replication is the process of replicating CDs/DVDs in a controlled production environment using injection moulding equipment to make the discs from raw materials. For runs of 1000 upwards, disc replication is the most cost-effective method of producing. The reason for this is that whilst the initial setup cost of producing a glass master and formatting the machines for your job is higher, once configured the cost of producing each unit is very low and requires minimal user intervention.
