Good Reasons to Publish Your Music

Thursday, 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.

www.prsformusic.com

It’s satisfying and raises self esteem….and may even raise some cash!!

Heralding the BluRay

Thursday, 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.

We love it when our customers share a picture or video of their order with us !

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.

Our Managing Director here at Duplication Centre was a Professional Musician majoring in the Hammond B3 Organ .

He is one of the only Hammond players in the UK to use the foot pedals and enjoys an eclectic range of music but his main love is Jazz and Jazz funk.

He has an amazing musical ability and an incredible ear for music and plays most instruments he picks up!

Martin owned a  recording Studio  and it was from this studio that Duplication Centre grew. It was here that he met Mark Smith our Technical Director.

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.

Cellowrap, Shrinkwrap & Cellobags

Wednesday, September 12th, 2018

Here at Duplication Centre we offer all three of these options for giving your CD/DVD or Blu-Ray the fully professional finished look.

What is the difference?

CELLOWRAP:

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.

SHRINKWRAP:

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.

 

CELLOBAGS:

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!

Printed Parts Are Important

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

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 🙂
