    Hi guys, i run Gillies Audio, we have recently moved premises and are now based in Bradford. We thermally print the discs so the quality is so much better than inkjet and we also digitally print paper parts in house, so I am pretty certain we won't be beaten on price. We can also produce all standard and large format print so for any promo work you need to do, such as flyers, posters, banners, stickers and also your bands branded merchandise like t-shirts, hoody's etc, again all done in house. You can call in to our premises to check us out and see what we are about, and I can send you samples to see the quality. I am pretty certain you will be over the moon with what we can do and the fact we are local is a huge bonus. Thanks Gemma

    CD Duplication is cheaper on quantities below 500 units. As it is mass production the setup costs for CD Replication are pretty high (glassmastering, creation of printplates/silks). ...But I personally think a replicated CD looks way nicer.

    Card wallets are usually litho printed but as thats's a mass production method it's expensive on small quantities.
    Digital print is a much better option, but you need to watch the quality as it varies greatly. I got these done
    http://roryandtheisland.wordpress.com/2011/04/05/new-album-on-its-way/ at http://www.alpha-duplication.com/ & they're great. I wouldn't tell the difference between them and litho if I didn't know better. I'm not sure if they do their digipacks in the same way but it'll be worth asking.

    WTS media is a great reference for cd duplication and dvd replication services. I think they are great because they meet the quality needs of users as well as the budget needs, they are pretty flexible. There are lots of great companies that specialize in this, but I have been satisfied with WTS the most. Let me know how that works out for you!

    Blue Pro Media in London are very good, not sure what their smallest run is, but quality is great, they give you links to upload your artwork etc.

    We always use http://www.demomaster.co.uk for all our stuff. Even if you have a large run at first and then want to follow it up with a smaller run of the same batch, they honor the price per disc from the intial batch which is handy. And saves quite a bit of cash too.

    Plus the discs always seem to arrive next day. Altho we just normally get CDs in those plastic wallets.

    short run cd duplication?

    Hi

    Is there anywhere (preferably local if not no probs) that does short runs of promo CDs? I reckon I only need about 100, with on CD printing (black only). Anyone got any people they use that are good? I know you get better value at higher quantities but I have loads of place mats for drinks.

    Re: short run cd duplication?

    I say for short runs with lower production value it can be easier/cheaper to do yourself.

    A few years back I got a CD compatible printer for about £100, printable CDs are £15 for 100, and plastic wallets £4 for 100. So (provided you can find a printer) the cost for 100 CDs is £119 plus time (and ink, I really don't recommend doing a black background!).

    And you can easily manage your inventory by only making what you think you're going to need for each occasion. And if need be you can make more than the initial run (at a cost of less than 20p per disk).

    Obviously if you want jewel cases, printed inserts etc, then professional duplication is going to be easier, but for freebies/ press copies/ cheapy EPs etc. I definitely suggest looking at DIY.

    Re: short run cd duplication?

    Hi Sam, I can help you out with this. I have been providing short-run/promo cd duplication in Leeds for around 6 years now.

    My rate is £30 per 50 discs (60p per unit), printed in full colour or b&w and supplied in plastic wallets. I offer fast turnarounds, and you can collect from my studio on Mabgate, close to the city centre.

    Drop me a line at ghosttownrec@hotmail.com
