Sending CD’s and DVD’s in the post: 6th September 2019

Friday, September 6th, 2019

Just a little practical help for you with  posting out your CD’s and DVD’s; especially if you might be considering selling via social media or your own website.

Always use a Mailite or Jiffy bubble bag for protection if you have chosen to use Standard or Slimline Jewell case or a Plastic DVD Case. If you don’t they are likely to get broken and it will cost you more to replace the case for your customer.

Card cases obviously  don’t break but can bend and of course the disc inside can break …so they still need  protection.

Either use a bubble bag or stiff card envelope.

For Royal Mail this takes you into the “Large Letter ” pricing category so dont be tempted to just stick a small stamp on!!! They won’t deliver it if you get it wrong!!

The actual price of the stamp depends on the weight of the contents but when you are sending just 1 unit it will usually be in the first category (up to 100g) or possibly just into the second.

 

Don’t forget to cost the price of the postage into the price you charge your customer….it all adds up!!

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

Thursday, 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

Wednesday, 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!
