Opening Hours for the Next Week: 30th June 2022

Thursday, June 30th, 2022

We are having a massive office refit and for this to happen we need to close our production for 1 week.

You can still place orders online or send emails with orders but they will not go into production until the week beginning Monday 11th July.

Our phone lines are still open during this time as well as live chat , so you can still speak to us here: 01702 530354, between 10am and 4pm.

We are reluctant to have this closure but have been waiting for this refit for a long time and it leads us to a better production process, so thats got to be good!

CD & DVD Replication: 19th May 2022

Thursday, May 19th, 2022

Apart from our in house duplication services, we also offer CD & DVD replication which we outsource to an amazing company in the Czech Republic.

We have worked with them for nearly 20 years bringing professional high quality replication to our customers.

If you are not sure of the difference between the two processes we have details in our FAQ on this but some of the main differences are: quantities each process excels at, the speed of turnaround, price and most importantly the process used to put your art and content on to the discs.

https://www.duplicationcentre.co.uk/faq.html

Duplication offers fast turnaround (24 hour), digital printing and burning of content from quantities of 1-1000 , whereas replication will only print 500+ quantities and is done using a glass master which stamps the data on to the disc.This takes 10-15 working days.

Brexit did initially give us a few headaches with importing but we have this all in hand now as we pay the customs fees as soon as we know the order is in the UK.

If you need 500 + discs and have time on your side give us a call or have a look at the prices on our site.

Our Prices: 9th May 2022

Monday, May 9th, 2022

Just to let you know that despite rising costs from most of our wholesalers, we are keeping the prices we charge you, the same as 2021!

 

We want you to be able to make some money from the sale of your CD’s, DVD’s and Blu-Ray and the best way we can help with that is by not passing the price increase on to you. So we have kept our prices the same as last year.

Check out the pricing on all our products and you can also be assured that you will receive high quality, fully professional standard products, to sell to your customers.

If you need any help or advice just call us on 01702 530354 , live chat from the website or email me :

una@duplicationcentre.co.uk.

We will be very happy to help you.

Digital Publishing:29th April 2022

Friday, April 29th, 2022

Did you know that we offer a platform for you to sell your digital products whether it be music, information or videos from your own website.

We developed this platform originally to give musicians the opportunity to actually make some money from providing a downloadable product …rather than it being free on Spotify. This idea then  snowballed to being developed into something that can be used by anyone who wants their customers to access a product via a download.

So for example we sell Tutorial DVDs , Dance Shows ,Craft Making Lessons….as well as the many Music Tracks , Albums EP’s and DVD’s our customers upload, for their fans to purchase  .

How does this work?

You set up your products and send us your content online or by post.

Your customers purchase your products by download or physical delivery .

Customers check out and pay through our payment facility and the funds go directly to your paypal account .

You pay us a monthly fee depending on the payment plan you choose with us.

 

If you dont sell anything you dont pay anything.

Have a look here at the website and if you need any more information call us on 01702 530354 and speak to Martin.

CD Text / Metadata: 22nd April 2022

Friday, April 22nd, 2022

When the CD information or CD text is displayed on a computer, the information is coming from an online database. The database is usually Gracenote (the more common) or AllMusic.

The Gracenote database serves CD information to: Apple Music, WinAmp, Quintessential Media Player, and Finder (Mac OS). The AllMusic database serves CD information to: Windows Media Player, Rhapsody, and Real Music Player.

Registration on these databases must be completed by you for CD information/text to display.

You can find further information on how to submit your CD on the below links.

Selling Your CD’s and DVD’s: 7th April 2022

Thursday, April 7th, 2022

We are finding that more and more, selling your CD’s  in hard copy at live venues and gigs of any kind, is a vital source of income for artists.

For musicians it is usually just audio CD that they sell, but an idea worth considering is a live DVD as well.

Not many bands sell DVDs at music gigs and would be a very different and exciting piece of merchandise.

You can have a DVD in a single card wallet …just like a CD…so it is no more expensive to produce here..just few pence more for the disc.

You can get an instant price here:

https://www.duplicationcentre.co.uk/prices.html

Or you can call and chat to us for help and advice on 01702 530354.

We look forward to speaking to you.

Proofing Your Artwork: 30th March 2022

Wednesday, March 30th, 2022

We offer both soft ( electronic) and hard copy proofs to you, free of charge.

Some customers just want to visualise or in the case of a hard copy, see the quality of their order and how it will actually look when printed.

So for example this customer wanted to see the colour match of his disc to the digipak:

 

CD and printed art on card for proofing colour match

It can be the case that printed parts will not exactly match the colour of the same colour upload, when its printed on a disc…just the fact that they are printed on different mediums can affect the tone of the colour sometimes.

In the case of a hard copy proof we print 2 copies and hold 1 here as a control and post the other to you by Royal Mail.

You then have the option to approve straight away if you are happy with the print or to alter it by uploading new artwork to us.

We will always work with you to get the best result possible for your order.

 

Not everyone wants or needs this so if you do, just need to mention that you would like this in the notes (which is a free field text section) as you check out.

 

We have all sorts of other advice in our artwork section here:

Or you can call us on 01702 530354 and we will be happy to help you.
