Pressed Discs (replication)
We offer CD replication (molded discs) for quantities as low as 250, and have run projects as high as 50,000 units. the process is identical regardless of the size of the order. A glass master is made from your master CDR and CD’s are then custom manufactured with your content pressed right into the plastic. The content cannot be written over, and the surface is more resistant to scratching than a duplicated (burned) disc.
Turn times for replicated discs are usually 10-12 working days (plus shipping) after your artwork, and replication rights paperwork has been approved. Contact us to learn more.
Short Runs (duplication)
A CDR (recordable) is manufactured with a die layer so that you can ’burn’ content onto the disc. If you need just a few discs for demo purposes, or if your content will be changing often, short runs are the way to go. We offer both Thermal printed discs (black ink on either a silver or white disc – text or simple line art works best) or Inkjet labels printed in full colour.
We can usually complete your short run in 3 to 5 working days. If you have a deadline, let us know, and we’ll do our best to ensure you can get on with your other business. You’ll need to have licensing in place if your using other peoples music or content. click here to learn more about replication rights.
Short run Packaging: Even if you need just a few demo copies of your music, you’ll want to make a great first impression. We offer solutions that help you stay on budget and prepare for larger orders in the future. Contact us to learn more.
CD audio (replication)
Audio CD capacity:
120mm compact disc | 76 min–00 sec | red book standard
80mm compact disc | 20 min – 00 sec | red book standard
business card cd | 4 minutes – 38 sec | red book standard
*the RED BOOK (which contains the standards for CD-audio manufacturing, both discs and players) specifies that the maximum program length should be 76 minutes of music. However, as 80 minute CDr’s have become the norm in recent years, they have pushed the pre-recorded discs to same limit. In order to warranty 100% compatibility between a pressed disc and a music CD player, we recommend that the RED BOOK standard of 76 minutes be maintained. We cannot be held responsible for program lengths in excess of 76 minutes, however with a signer waiver we will press 80 minute discs. Contact us to learn more.
