CD Duplication

CD Duplication involves burning data from a master CD-R onto CD-R or CD+R blank media, then printing the disc via short run inkjet, thermal or label techniques. Replicat has a minimum quantity of 50 units for CD duplication.

CD Replication, by comparison, has a minimum run size per title of 250 units. It involves creating a glass master and stamper, pressing and offset or screen-printing the discs. Disc replication is the manufacturing technique used for all Hollywood DVD movies and commercial CD releases, and, our name suggests, that’s what Replicat specialises in.
