CD Duplication or Replication – Which Method Is Best For You?

CD duplication is very identical to replicating CD’s, yet the main distinction between the two is that duplicating CD’s are less expensive than replicating them. A key reason for the difference the technology and the kind of discs used. CD replication providers use CD-ROMs while CD duplication businesses use CD-Rs. This does not affect the result and at the end, you will get a final product which is exactly like the original and is of fine quality.

Who Can Use CD’s Duplication?

There are many cases where we do not need too many CD’s to advertise your service or company but a small number of them will be perfect. Even so, doing it your own does not make sense, because you have to spend large amounts to protect the covers, CD labels, jewel cases and other packaging products. It can be expensive and time intensive. On the other hand, duplication can be done for less than five hundred copies, which make it an attractive choice for clients who are looking for constrained quantities of duplicated CD’s.

CD replication services are time consuming and the numbers of CD’s to do all that will be much higher than most Internet marketers or business owners actually need to promote their business. Duplication services on the other hand can be tried by individuals who are expecting a quick turnaround time. Most companies that have experience in this field can process your order within 24 hours. With express shipping, you probably will get all your CD’s in less than two days to two weeks, depending on the location from where you’re ordering them.

Extra Services

The majority CD duplication businesses provide you a wide range of services other than duplicating CD’s. For example, some businesses lend a hand in printing, designing, and packaging. Branding and packaging is common with most businesses, but some firms offer artwork services. It will be a easier for you to get all your work done under one roof.

As soon as you made the packaging, you always have the choice to reorder the same item whenever you need extra discs. Given that your order will be prepared and shipped to you in record time, you can greatly bank on their services. This is why small companies are fond of CD duplication businesses.

In comparison to CD replication services, CD duplication may suffer from a limited loss in quality, which is hardly noticeable on digital media like presentations, promotional videos and e-books. This probably can be a sensitive concern for materials like images, commercials, and music. Next, some businesses tend to leave different kinds of burn scars on your CD’s. This usually is not a problem, because your discs will be sent out to different people. On the other hand, if you are very particular about this, you need to ask your CD duplication provider to create the same kind of CD’s. Development in technology may help them to do so.

    So much easier to just use a duplication service. Takes most of the hassle out of the process.

    Yeah I agree with that but before outsourcing your disc to your chosen provider you should always take consider to read your duplication provider’s Terms and Conditions to avoid any misunderstanding and hassles.

      Yes duplication is easier than replication because duplication is for small quantities around 1 to 500 discs and replication is for bulk discs ranging 500 or more.

    I agree! The best solution in this field of work is a duplication service and if you have all the services in just one place, then you can focus on other things.
