What is CD Pressing or CD Replication?

CD pressing or CD replication is what most musicians think of when they consider releasing an album. The CD manufacturing process is typically known as CD pressing. With pressed CDs, we will use the master disc or DDP image you submit to us and create a glass master. The glass master is then used to create a nickel stamper and polycarbonate substrates which are metalized. Pressed CDs are also known as replicated discs.

This process produces a precise replication of your original master in order that your final product sounds exactly the same as the master. You possibly can consider this as professional-grade – if you buy a CD that has been launched by a record label, it actually is a pressed CD.

What printing method is used for Replicated CDs

We provide outstanding offset CD printing UK and silk screen printing, focusing on delivering high-quality results. While offset printing is suitable for any type of artwork and silk screen printing is most suitable for artwork with solid backgrounds containing up to 4 colors of vector artwork. In this method, the output will be a deeper and more solid print.

What is the best time to choose CD Replication?

While CD Replication is much cheaper than duplication when the disc quantity is 500 or more and if you require professionally finished discs. However, there is no impact on the quality of data that is stored or copied on the discs during the duplication or replication process.

CD Duplication vs CD Replication

So to duplicate or to press, that’s the query.

The reply will depend on the size of your order, your budget, and what you hope to do with the product.
Duplicated CDs are a sensible choice for very short runs of CDs as a result you’ll be able to order only as many as you want without the expense related to setting up a glass master. If budget is an issue, duplicated CDs are the budget-friendly alternative for small runs.

In case you want larger runs like above 500 units then replication is the best option. Replication does produce a barely higher product and whenever you get into larger runs, the cost of setting up the master turns cheaper.
