MORPHIUSDISC MANUFACTURING. CD REPLICATION (AUDIO) & CD
Although many people
in the U.S. use the terms interchangeably, CD replication
and CD duplication are actually very different processes.
MorphiusDisc Mfg offers both. Unlike many other
CD duplicators, we will always advise you whether CD
replication or CD duplication is the more appropriate
method to use. (Please Note: the info
on this page applies equally to DVD replication and
we use to duplicate CDs are the same ones we use to duplicate
DVDs, and the machines we use to replicate CDs are the
same ones we use to replicate DVDs).
CD Replication / DVD Replication In the CD replication and DVD replication process,
discs are pressed using a glass master made with a laser
beam recorder (also called an LBR Machine). Once the
glass master is made, it gets used to stamp the information
onto raw polycarbonate material formed into discs, and
then they get trimmed into neat disc shapes. After
the discs are made,
printed directly onto
the surface of the CD / DVD. CD replication and DVD
replication result in the type of CD and DVD discs
that can be bought in retail stores. MorphiusDisc Mfg
prints using both offset and silkscreen printingon our
replicated CDs and replicated DVDs.
CD Duplication / DVD Duplication (AKA CD-R Duplication
or DVD-R Duplication)
IThe CD duplication (or DVD duplication) process is quite
different. In CD duplication, discs are burned using
blank CD-R media or DVD-R media. This is essentially
the same as the process used by someone sitting at their
computer and copying a single CD-R, except we use machines
specifically designed to do many of them at a time, and
also set up to do quality control on each disc made.
After burning each disc, we print directly onto
the CD-R and DVD-R media. (Note
companies uses a less desirable process that involves
printing on a paper label and apply it onto the
disc surface of the CD-Rs and DVD-Rs.
Unlike many companies who give their customers duplicated
CD-Rs and duplicated DVD-Rs for orders under 500 units,
we offer CD replication and DVD replication on all quantities
of 300 units or more, and we can even convert a 100 unit
order to CD replication or DVD replication for our customers
that want to be able to sell their discs in retail channels
but don't know if they will need more than 100 units.
For our customers who aren't in a huge rush, we almost
always recommend that they order CD replication or DVD
replication, unless they are ordering printed media that
they want to "burn" the information onto later, or for
customers doing quantities of 100 or less who aren't
concerned about selling at retail stores or customers
doiing 10-500 units who are in a huge hurry. We help
many of our customers sell on retail sites (like Amazon.com,
Morphius.com, etc). Be aware that most
of those sites don't accept duplicated CD-Rs for sale
For our customers who aren't worried about retail
sales, CD duplication can be a fine option, and Morphius
goes to great lengths to make sure our CD duplication
quality is much higher than the industry standard. We
use a sophisticated verification process that ensures
CD-Rs have been duplicated accurately and match the master
provided, and we use fade-resistant inks that make our
printing a cut above most companies producing printing
on duplicated CD and DVD media. We also conduct stress
tests on all the CD-R & DVD-R media we use to make
sure that the duplicated CDs and DVDs we produce are
replicated CDs and DVDs as possible, and resistant to
scratching and damage caused by temperature change. Our
commitment to quality is just one of the reasons
Morphius is a favorite choice for North American and
who need CD replication, CD duplication, DVD replication,
MorphiusDisc Mfg: not
just a total solution, but an ideal strategy for
getting your products noticed.
