Here’s a little bit of inspiration and interest for our customers this February!!!
Featuring our Managing Director Martin Johnson.
Martin who was formerly a professional musician, is well known in the Jazz world as one of the best Hammond B3 players in the Uk.
He is distinguished particularly by being one of the only players to use the pedals for bass rather than the left hand.

Just live on our Web-Site for the start of October is the New 4 Page Lancing Pack.
The Lancing pack is a 4 panel card wallet which opens like a book.
Printed in full colour front,back and inside using our industry leading digital press.
There are 4 panels for your artwork and an opening on the right for your disc to slot snugly into.
The card is die cut for an immaculate finish and is made from FSC Certified and sustainable premium Pro Card Stock 300 gsm .
The Lancing Pack has a modern look and is the perfect,more Eco-Friendly option to the CD Jewell Case.
And for the finishing touch you can choose to have Shrinkwrap applied to the Lancing Pack or for it to be sealed in one of our fitted Cellobags.
What is the difference?
We use this process for wrapping Single Standard DVDs along with Double DVDs,3 Way and 4 Way DVD cases and for all Standard Single and Double Jewell cases.
This process is semi-automated and applies a thick plastic outer wrap by a heat sealing process, to pre-cut pieces of the plastic wrap.
We can use this process to wrap any of the cases we offer in the duplication process using PVC shrink film (gauge 15 micron) including:
Jewell Cases both single and any multi-way, DVD cases single and multi-way, Blu-Ray cases both single and multi-way,Clam Shells, Digi-paks, and all the slimline versions of the cases that we offer on the web-site. We can also use shrinkwrap on our digi-paks and card wallets.
Like cellowrapping this is a semi-automated process where the roll of wrap is cut to size using a heat bar, sealed and then literally “shrunk” to fit the case being wrapped with a heat gun.The customer then rips this off to open the product.
Both of these processes produce fully sealed units which not only look very professional but are then fit for sale on the internet. For many company’s cellowrap /shrinkwrap is a requirement acting as proof that the product is new and has not been “tampered” with.
Both are easily removed and then the wrap needs to be discarded.
These are bespoke bags that we have are made-to-measure for products that we offer them on; they fit snugly and look professional.
They are clear and can be sealed with a sticky panel much like a self-seal envelope.
The advantage with these is that with careful removal your product can be reinserted for added storage protection.
The process of applying these is completely manual.
It is available on all the single and double cd jewell cases (standard and slimline) and on DVDs both single double 3 and 4 way as well as the slimline version.
It is the most popular choice for our card wallet and digi-pak products.
These are all optional additions to the packing of your order and not essential unless you plan to sell on web-site like Amazon where it is a must!
All of our customers are producing a CD,DVD or Blu-Ray to communicate Audio and/or Visual, Music, Spoken Word, Information or Performances to their audience/customers. This is the main event!
With a physical CD, DVD or Blu-Ray however there is another dimension/medium available to express visually in Word, Picture and Images through the use of printed covers and booklet inserts. This recruits yet another of our senses and gives an additional aesthetic dimension to your product. For most customers this is a really important feature of the duplication process and for many is not just the imparting of information, but another expression of art.
Our clients can spend a great deal of time designing artwork for their orders so with this in mind we invest in a State of the Art printer technology which is second to none for print production.
We only use the highest quality card and paper on all the associated printed parts that come with CD, DVD and Blu-Ray Production.
How often have you pulled out a CD/DVD booklet that is thin and shoddy quality? We know that you want your duplication order to be of a professional standard so we only use card that is 350gsm and 170gsm papers. These are good to handle and allow the print quality to show at its best. Your carefully planned project deserves no less than the highest quality printed parts and that is what we provide.
We also manage to remain Eco-friendly whilst maintaining this high quality by using FSC certified sustainable stock for our printing 🙂
We live in an age where all things exist on the cloud, but this is only partly true for the text information’s we see when playing CD-Audio disc.
There are in fact two ways to add track text info to a disc:
In the beginning, not long after CDs were released in the 80s, an update was made so small amounts of text could be added to a CD. This text lives in sub channels of the disc so it won’t effect playback, but a CD-TEXT enabled player can read and display the information. Nowadays these players are less common, but still used in most car stereos unless you’re driving one of a few higher end vehicles.
A common assumption is that most computers read CD text, however this is not the case; iTunes, Windows Media Player etc. do not use CD-Text at all. They use a more modern system, the GraceNote – Compact Disc Data Base (CDDB). With this system none of the text used is actually stored on the disc, but all saved on the internet.
When you insert a CD and view through iTunes for example, the computer identifies the disc and then looks it up on the web. If it cannot find a match it will not display the text information, or may display a close match (from another artist!). So even if you have a CD which has CD text, but is not registered with the CDDB, its unlikely the text will show up on a computer at all.
We have customers who have experienced this problem and fortunately its very easy to correct.
We recommend using iTunes as it’s one of the easiest ways to upload your CD information.
The below link will show you how to do this in just a few minutes:
Once submitted it can take a couple of days to update but that’s all you need to do.
