ALL CD MANUFACTURING
takes place in one of the largest CD pressing factories in Europe, with a monthly production of 20 million discs. The CD’s are replicated on large pressing machines, using stampers produced from the glass mastering process. This is the type of disc you would buy from HMV and not to be confused with CD duplication.
Because of the complexity in producing a stamper using the glass mastering process, and the time involved in setting up large CD pressing and CD printing machines it is not economical to manufacture CD runs of less than 100 units. For orders below 100 discs you will require CD duplication, however this is a service we do not provide as CD-R’s are not universally compatible with all players, unlike the professionally pressed CD’s that we supply. We are one of the only European CD replication companies producing runs less than 500 discs.
Many of our clients are new to the CD manufacturing process, so below you will find answers to frequently asked questions about the CD production process. You will also find more detailed information on the individual types of CD packaging on the associated product page.
