DVD & CD Production FAQ’s

How should I supply masters?

We can accept masters in various formats. Many people supply masters on CD-R, this should be supplied as “Red Book”, most CD recording software will produce this if the disc is set to record “Disc at Once”.

Please use good grade media and write the disc at low speed (4 speed is preferable, however some writers default to 8 speed), masters should be free or dirt scratches and finger prints and packed into album type jewel cases as this offers the best protection for the disc. Please do not send discs in PVC or card wallets as this can result in damage to the master that might cause the disc to be rejected from glass mastering.

The DDP image has quickly become the preferred format for supplying CD & DVD masters by professional mastering engineers & authoring houses. We can accept DDP master delivery over the internet by FTP upload or on disc / USB memory stick. We will require an MD5 checksum file for all DDP Masters, until we have the MD5 we will not be able to glass master your project

We can also accept masters on Exabyte and Umatic 1630.

Do you provide mastering?

If you are unable to provide a CD master we can create this for you from your supplied audio files. We prefer audio files to be supplied as WAV or AIFF files in 16 bit / 44.1Khz format. We will then compile your master and send you out a reference disc for approval. We do make a small charge for this service, this will be between £ 20.00 – £ 30.00 + VAT.

We can accept artwork in other formats, however there may be a charge to create PDF files from your supplied artwork. If we do any editing to your artwork we will provide you with a PDF proofs for approval before we commence manufacturing. We are constantly updating our blog with tips on supplying artwork, we hope you find it useful.

Can you provide me with one copy to see how it will look?

Afraid we are unable to produce one finished copy for approval before we manufacture your job. As all of our print is produced on large offset printing machines, it is uneconomical to set the machines up to produce one booklet or digi-pack. However we can supply Agfa / Sherpa colour contract proofs printed on cromalin paper for you to check how the actual colours will appear on your finished product. Please contact us for prices and turnaround on contract proofs.
