CD Duplication (CD-R) vs. CD Replication
CD Duplication is an affordable option for customers looking to make a small run of discs (even as few as one). A recordable disc (CD-R, DVD-R or BD-R) is “burned” with your content directly onto our top-quality blank media. One possible drawback is infrequently reported problems of burned discs being incompatible with older car CD players. For disc quantities of 1-300, we recommend disc duplication.
CD Replication includes the creation of a glass master from a client's original master, a nickel stamper created from that glass master, and the injection molding of clear optical-grade polycarbonate substrates (clear discs) from the nickel stamper. The process also involves the metallizing and lacquering of those polycarbonate substrates to produce a perfect copy - an exact replication of your CD or DVD disc. CD replication is quick and cost-effective, especially for larger quantities. For disc quantities over 500, we recommend CD replication.
