Support Musicians….. 11th Oct 2019

Friday, October 11th, 2019

In the growing age of Streaming Music & TV services  by companies like Spotify, Amazon, Netflix & YouTube we have seen very little change in the purchase of Hard Copy CD’s ,DVD’s & Blu-Rays here at Duplication Centre.

 

At a concert in London last year we chatted to the members of Accousic Alchemy after their set at Pizza Express Dean Street.

Did you know how little the artists make when you download or listen to them via streaming…its appauling…..next to nothing!!…so we bought one of their cds and they signed it for us …that’s the way to show your appreciation to musicians!!

We encourage you to still do the same….build up your collection in hard copy as well as digital download…..buy a hard copy at a festival or gig or music shop and lets really support musicians!

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!!

You can check your pricing here:

Packaging and the Environment: 1st July 2019

Monday, July 1st, 2019

At Duplication Centre we are sending out an increasing amount of sustainable card products which minimises the necessity for using a massive amount of plastic bubblewrap.

We do however still send lots of plastic and potentially breakable products and the reality is however much fragile tape you put on a parcel, they can sometimes get some rough treatment by the couriers!!!

Our priority is to get orders to customers in the perfect condition that they leave us, so good packing is important.

All this said we still try to reuse and recycle as much as we can :

*Boxes from incoming products are reused to double box giving amazing transit protection.

*Sourcing card boxes from other local businesses that would other wise be discarded.

*Reuse of mailite or bubble bags for outgoing samples and proofs.

It can be time consuming to recycle but we think it’s worth it .

Always trying to take responsibility for our own foot print.

Fund Raising CD’s: 5th June 2019

Wednesday, June 5th, 2019

Selling CD’s and DVD’s that you have recorded are a great way of raising money for charity and other good causes.

We are featuring a short piece about the West Midlands Air Ambulance after a customer told us about the life saving work these guys do day in day out.

Jon Tame rang us for a quotation to duplicate his Double CD. It was during this telephone conversation he told us the story of how his wife had been run down on a pedestrain crossing; the air ambulance had air lifted his wife to hospital in the “Golden Hour” after this near fatal car accident.

At Christmas she walked again unaided but had it not been for the work of the Air Ambulance the outcome of the accident would probably have been very different.

John has dedicated his Double Album “It’s All About The Bass” to the Wolverhampton Ambulance Crew’s & Paramedic’s, West Midland Air Ambulance, The West Midlands Police Force and the Staff at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

All the proceeds from the sale of the album are being donated to the West Midlands Air Ambulance with heartfelt thanks.

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!

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!
