15 Years of Business: 12th June 2019

June 12th, 2019

Duplication Centre celebrates 15 years of successful business this year.

We are a family run, small business which allows us to work closely with our customers. As the business has grown we have discovered that probably the most important thing in our work, after producing high quality and professional products, is that we listen to and try to help and advise our customers one to one.

Good communication in any aspect of life is so important and we try to always work with our customers to understand and help them acheive what they want with their order.

We find live chat really helpful along with the phone lines that come directly to experienced staff.

We always aim to respond to emails as quickly as we can and will proactively notify customers if we spot a problem with their order.

If you order this month we are adding 5 Extra Free units, just put FREE5 in the special code box when you check out.

Fund Raising CD’s: 5th June 2019

June 5th, 2019

Selling CD’s and DVD’s that you have recorded are a great way of raising money for charity and other good causes.

We are featuring a short piece about the West Midlands Air Ambulance after a customer told us about the life saving work these guys do day in day out.

Jon Tame rang us for a quotation to duplicate his Double CD. It was during this telephone conversation he told us the story of how his wife had been run down on a pedestrain crossing; the air ambulance had air lifted his wife to hospital in the “Golden Hour” after this near fatal car accident.

At Christmas she walked again unaided but had it not been for the work of the Air Ambulance the outcome of the accident would probably have been very different.

John has dedicated his Double Album “It’s All About The Bass” to the Wolverhampton Ambulance Crew’s & Paramedic’s, West Midland Air Ambulance, The West Midlands Police Force and the Staff at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

All the proceeds from the sale of the album are being donated to the West Midlands Air Ambulance with heartfelt thanks.

Selling on Amazon: 29th May 2019

May 29th, 2019

We are often asked about selling CD’s and DVD’s online with companies like Amazon.

Many of our customers do this very successfully and use us to duplicate their CD’s /DVD’s and send their bulk orders direct to an Amazon Fulfilment Centre.

Selling on Amazon couldn’t be easier and there are a variety of selling plans available to choose from.

Depending on how much you think you will sell you can either have a monthly subscritption fee or a pay as you go (per item fee); you set this all up with Amazon when you register.

Once you have registered you just list your CD or DVD, and then use either an Amazon Fulfilment Centre to deliver to your customer or you fulfil the orders yourself.

You get access to the millions of customers who browse Amazon, a secure and trusted market place for selling and dedicated support to help you along the way.

Give it a go !!

Being Environmentally Aware: 21st May 2019

May 21st, 2019

Playing our small part and being responsible for our own footprint, is our starting point with environmental issues.

CD, DVD & BluRay has traditionally been a very plastic orientated industry, with the CD Jewell Case and the Standard Plastic DVD box being for many years, the norm for packing and presenting your discs.

Over the last few years, and in conjunction with current responsible thinking we have been  keen to promote our Eco-Friendly casing options.

We have developed our own templates and sourced FSC certified Sustainable card stock to provide our customers with a high quality, low price, ecofriendly range for CD, DVD & BluRay packaging.

These include:

  • Single Card Wallets
  • Double Card Wallets
  • Lancing Packs
  • 4 page Digipaks

Cd single card wallets

As a result of this we have noticed a huge shift in the choice our customers make when deciding on their cases.

Our card wallets by far exceed the popularity of all our plastic options.

At the same time we are very respectful of peoples right to choose and still stock all the traditional case choices. Where possible and where the quality is good enough, we use eco plastic versions like the ecolite Amaray cases for our traditional dvd packaging.These are both fully recycled and  recycleable.

 

All of the templates for designing any of our card products can be found here:

Making Money From Music – Get The Mix Right! 9th May 2019

May 9th, 2019

The sharpest customers we deal with no longer rely on any one way to make money from their music.

Remember that the fresh way to approach making money is to have a mix of content available for your fans:

  • Via Your Website
  • Via Social Media
  •  After Gigs

These will include digital downloads, merchandising and of course the opportunity to buy CD’s and DVD’s in hard copy….and if you’re doing this you have all bases covered.

Another tip is to make yourself available after gigs to sign your CD’s…providing  a memory that people love to keep!

Check out our instant price calculator to get a quote for your CD’s/DVD’s & BluRay’s to sell at your gigs.

Barcoding your CD’s & DVD’s & BluRay’s: 1st May 2019

May 1st, 2019

It’s easy to buy a Barcode from us, just email una@duplicationcentre.co.uk requesting a Barcode and she will send you a PayPal payment link for £25 plus vat.

You can then add the Barcode to the artwork you prepare for us when we run your CD, DVD or Blu Ray job for you.

If you are selling in shops and online you will need a barcode. Remember too that if you sell via Amazon you also will need to have us Cellowrap your job, as it’s an Amazon requirement.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/

The Barcode is the unique number that when scanned will identify your product. You need a barcode for each of the individual products you have. Remember that the pricing information related to the barcode is set by each individual retailer. The Barcode simply identifies the product itself.

BARCODE

*Unique 12/13-digit code assigned to your product – guaranteed if you buy from us.

*Scanned in shop or online checkout by your retailer for stock management and sales data information.

*World Wide use

Barcodes are easy to insert into your artwork, (we provide them to you in a variety of different formats) and come with a certificate of authentication.

Alternatively, we can easily add the Barcode you have purchased from us to your artwork for you, just let us know when you order.

Don’t be fooled and get a Free Barcode…there are lots of fake ones out there!
