CD Manufacturing

We have been providing CD Pressing services for over 25 years. We have built up an extensive client list from small bands to major record companies who trust us with their CD production needs. CD Manufacturing made easy.


The most popular type of CD packaging is the CD Album Case, it has been with us for as long as the CD itself existed. CD manufacturer’s, distributor’s and retail shops love them as they are all fitted out to deal with this standard size of CD packaging and they also fit perfectly into your home storage units.

The CD Album Case

Many alternative forms of CD packaging have been introduced over the years but the Album Jewel Case remains the number one product for music retail. We consider it a design classic.

Album Jewel Cases offer excellent protection for the disc and can hold CD booklets that can range from 2 to 32 pages. This gives you plenty of space to show off your creative designs and given enough pages, can even detail all your song lyrics.

The inlay in the rear of the case is generally used for the track listings.  The spines on the side of the case give enough room for the band name and title so it can be easily read when in a CD rack.

Creating A CD Master From WAV / AIFF Files

If you do not have the equipment and software or do not feel confident creating your CD master, we can create a master from your data files for £ 30.00 + VAT / £ 36.00 Inc VAT.

We prefer to receive WAV or AIFF files at 44.1Khz / 16 Bit, although we can accept higher sample rates and bit depths if required. If you have any special instructions about adding gaps / pauses between tracks or segways please leave a note in the folder. We can add the CD Text and ISRC codes when creating the master. 

Once we have created your CD master we will send you a DDP file with a custom media player for you to download so you can check that you are happy with the master. If we are creating your CD master please add 2 – 4 days to the standard turnaround time.

Please note that we do not adjust the EQ or dynamics when creating your master. If you need “creative mastering” with audio enhancements we can recommend various professional mastering studios that we work closely with.

Add A Barcode

We can add an EAN 13 barcode to your artwork for £ 20.00 + VAT / £ 24.00 Inc VAT. A barcode is essential for distribution in physical and most online shops.

Our minimum size for a barcode is 25 x 12.5mm and it can be printed anywhere on the back panel of the packaging. We advise leaving a 2 -3mm gutter from the edge of the panel. If you need a precise placement of the barcode you can add a white box of a minimum size of 25 x 12.5mm and we will drop the barcode image in that box.

If you are adding your own barcode to the packaging it is strongly advised that it is a black only vector image and the barcode image is not changed from the generated / original size. We can add your barcode image using our software to ensure it scans correctly for £ 10.00 + VAT / £ 12.00 Inc VAT

We strongly advise barcodes to be printed as black only on a white background. Once the barcode has been added we will send you a proof to check that you are happy with the placement.


Shrink-wrap adds a protective seal and professional look to your finished CD. Many physical and online shops need stock to be supplied with wrap. 

If storing the CD’s for a prolonged period of time shrink-wrap can prevent the accumulation of dust and dirt, keeping the apcaking looking fresh and new. Shrink-wrap is charged at 4p per CD + VAT

100 Units£ 4.00 + VAT / £ 4.80 Inc VAT

Colour Proofs

If you require colour accurate / contract proofs we can provide these at additional cost. We can do A4 and A3 proofs, please contact us for prices. 

You will need to allow additional time for us to create the proofs, send them to you, and for you to return them to us. We would normally recommend adding 4 working days to the CD Manufacturing turnaround if you require contract proofs.

As all of our CD printing is produced on large printing presses, it is not economical to set the machines up to produce a one-off copy of the printed parts.

Without contract proofs our printers will print to weight.

Artwork Re-supply

All artwork files are checked and we will advise of issues we find that will need correcting. We will check re-supplied files for up to two revisions free of cost. Subsequent checks and proofs are subject to a £ 20.00 + VAT / £ 24.00 Inc VAT fee for each re-supply.

In some cases we may be able to correct the files to fit the specification and we will advise on the costs to do this.

Further Information

Below you will find information about CD album packaging and the elements that are included in our prices. You can find more technical information on our blog if you can’t find the information you need on our site, feel free to contact us with any questions you have.

Our Package Rates

All of the above CD package prices are for full-colour print on the disc and all pages of the booklet and inlay and album cases with clear or black trays and delivery to 1 UK mainland destination. We can also add a barcode and over-wrap at additional cost if required.

We only manufacture CD’s pressed from stampers made using the glass mastering process, we do not duplicate CD’s on recordable discs. All masters go through a thorough inspection prior to glass mastering to ensure the data is not corrupted and the master conforms to Red Book standard.
The maximum running time for an Audio CD is 80 minutes, we are unable to exceed this time under any circumstances. The maximum data for CD ROM is 650mb.
The above prices also include the manufacture of Enhanced CD (Audio + Data). If you have a large amount of audio and data to be pressed on the CD please contact us to calculate the maximum audio running time with the data required.

All of the above prices include a CD album case, sometimes called a jewel case. The CD tray can be black or if you require print in the reverse of the inlay we provide clear trays at no extra cost. We can also supply coloured trays, please contact us for available colours and prices.

CD Double Album Cases. If you require double CD packaging we can supply standard album cases with double CD trays. The double CD trays can be supplied clear or black and with or without “2 x CD” logo on printed on the spine.
CD Multi-boxes.

If you are require CD packaging for a 3 – 4 CD compilation in one case, we can provide multi-boxes. Prices available upon request. Slip Cases & ‘O’ cards. We have a wide range of slipcases available for single and multi case box sets, and can provide ‘O’ cards for single/double album cases.

Slimline Cases. We can supply CD’s in slim-line single cases, with J-card inserts, contact us for prices.

All of our booklet & inlays are printed full colour on all pages and both sides on the inlay if you would like a clear album case. All printing is off-set litho CMYK print, using computer to plate technology for the best possible registration. We can also print Spot / PANTONE colours on the paper parts at an additional cost.

Paper type. All 4, 6, 8 & 12 page CD booklets and inlays are printed on 150g  art paper as standard, this is the type of paper used for the majority of CD releases, as you will notice from your own CD collection. We can print on other types and weights of material,  please note that on runs less than 5000 units this will add considerable cost to the print, as we lose the economy of scale by changing the type of material that is running on the printing presses.

Additional CD Booklet Pages. We can print CD booklets up to a maximum of 32 pages. We also provide longer folding & poster style booklets.

We can add an EAN13 barcode for £ 20.00 + VAT. The barcode is printed on the rear inlay, it’s entirely up to you where the barcode is printed on the inlay.

Please leave a space of approximately 15 x 30mm on your artwork for us to drop the barcode into. It would help if you placed some text in this area saying “BARCODE”.

The CD cases can be supplied Over-wrapped / Cellophane wrapped at 3p per CD + VAT.

All prices include delivery to 1 UK mainland address, if you require delivery to any non-mainland UK addresses or multiple addresses please contact us for prices. We can also deliver internationally, prices available on request.

From approval of your CD master and artwork, allow approximately 14 – 16 calendar days from approval of master and artwork, turnaround can vary depending on the time of year and capacity. All deliveries take place Monday – Friday only. If we are to add a barcode to your artwork or add ISRC codes / CD Text to your CD master, allow 1-2 working days to edit the files and supply proofs/reference.

Turnaround time during the busiest periods (Christmas and Summer) can be slightly longer, also allow a couple of extra days if production is over a bank holiday.
