CD Duplication Process
When the requirement for the number of copy CD’s are in the hundreds, go for CD duplication. Here high-quality blank Grade A CD’s are sourced and using burning software the contents get burned on it.
This technique is more cost-effective for smaller batches. If you need to get the CDs ready quickly, then duplication is the best choice because it has a shorter turnaround time.
The process also called CD Burning involves burning data directly onto a recordable CD-R (‘readable’) disc. CD duplication essentially involves copying discs on to another through two possible methods – Duplication and Replication.
Our process works by copying CDs at a low speed to minimise the risk of any errors. The duplication machine is then able to pick up any faulty CDs and discard them so it’s not mixed in with the perfect ones.
CD Print Type
Inkjet Printing are similar to inkjet printing on paper and is effective for short-runs. It’s not ideal for full coverage of solid covers and can be difficult to colour match, expecially pantones. Another disadvantage is that frequent handling can cause smudging.
Thermal Gloss Printing is similar to standard printing but it adds a gloss lacquer coat on the disc giving the colours, text and graphic images a glossy, fully waterproof, UV protected disc leaving you with a professionally finished product. It’s best suited for full colour photographic high-gloss designs.
Types of CD’s
The brand of CDs we use are high quality professional grade AAA rated CD/DVD discs for all duplication jobs. The cases we use are also Grade A cases and for the printing we print on silk paper at 130 gm with digital printing. Printed parts use the highest quality paper and highest weight in the industry.
Generally, there are two types of CDs available – Compact disc-recordable or CD-R and Compact disc-rewritable or CD-RW.
CD-R can be written once and reads as many times as we want. So the data inside CD-R is permanent. While CD-RW can be written, read or re-written anytime. Each of these has got different logical formats. Here we have listed ten such formats.
