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!

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!

Good Reasons to Publish Your Music: 4th April 2019

April 4th, 2019

There is a great deal of information and research published about the health benefits of listening to and also of performing music.

Here at duplication centre we love to work with customers who are publishing as a solo artist or group/band and creating a hard copy CD,DVD or Blu-Ray to share with family, friends and fans.

Commit your work to CD for others to hear or just for your own enjoyment and pleasure.

Don’t forget to copyright your original music to ensure you receive any credits for use of your work.

You can find out about doing this on the PRS For Music website.

Heralding the BluRay: 7th March 2019

March 7th, 2019

People often forget that  a Blu-Ray can be played on a PS3, PS4 and XBox so you do not need to own a Blu-Ray player in order to buy and play Blu-Ray Discs.

Many of your customers may not even realise that they have the ability to play a Blu-Ray via one of these consoles!

Most families nowdays have one of these in the home.

We are promoting the Blu-Ray and have reduced our prices for you!!

What extra benefits do you get with a Blu-Ray over and above a standard DVD?

Greater Storage Capacity: Singe Layer BluRay can store approximately 25Gb data,this equals 2 hours of high defintiion information or 13hours of standard definition information.

Better Laser Technology: Blu-Ray players use a Blue Laser to read the stored information;the waves lengths are shorter and smaller in diameter than those of a DVD player, this allows for a closer and more precise reading of information on the discs.

Better Disc Construction:The Blu-Ray has a protective layer designed to resist scratching and in addition a harder coating than the DVD that makes it more scratch resistant.

Better Image Resolution:The Blu-Ray was designed for the high definition 1080 display. BluRay currently has the best image resolution on the market and looks amazing on HD TV, they are one of the few sources that display in Full HD.

Lastly and very importantly Blu-Ray can handle 4K (Ultra HD)….we dont need a new type of disc for our new Tv’s…you can have it all with the Blu-Ray.
