Make Some Money: 1st October 2020

Thursday, October 1st, 2020

cd digipak in white with grim reaper on frontWe are still seeing many “Lockdown Sessions” and recordings being released as albums in their own right.

If you haven’t thought about doing this it’s a great way to bring new material, that you have been working on during the recent Lockdown,to your fans.

If you didnt have too much inspriation during lockdown you could just release a single or EP CD.

We are also still seeing lots of tutorial style DVD’s being duplicated to reach those customers you may have that are following a course via DVD or who can’t get to the classes you usually run.

Will my song titles show when I play my CD in a computer?6th August 2020

Thursday, August 6th, 2020

Computers use an online database to display CD information, the most common one is known as Gracenote, a more detailed article on Gracenote can be found here Gracenote CD Database and CD-TEXT.

Tunes and Windows Media Player DO NOT read and CD-Text embedded on the actual CD, at all! This is common for all computer CD player software.

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

The Gracenote database serves CD information to: iTunes, 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, the client, rather than us as no extra information is added to the CD for them to work.

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

In the duplication process we have to use a hard copy disc master to work from, and in the past our customers have largley sent these to us by post…..and many still do!

We have however found it particularly helpful during the lockdown period that we are able to accept customers masters digitally and create a hard copy master to work from here. With queues at the Post Offices because of social distancing and less staff working it has been a really helpful.

We can create masters from your files if you have an electronic image in ISO, JMG, NRG, DDP or BIN /CUE or you can send us audio or video files which need authoring.

If you need any more information about this the FAQ’s on the website can help you or you can call us on 01702-530 354 and ask any questions.

Selling on Amazon: 29th May 2019

Wednesday, May 29th, 2019

We are often asked about selling CD’s and DVD’s online with companies like Amazon.

Many of our customers do this very successfully and use us to duplicate their CD’s /DVD’s and send their bulk orders direct to an Amazon Fulfilment Centre.

Selling on Amazon couldn’t be easier and there are a variety of selling plans available to choose from.

Depending on how much you think you will sell you can either have a monthly subscritption fee or a pay as you go (per item fee); you set this all up with Amazon when you register.

Once you have registered you just list your CD or DVD, and then use either an Amazon Fulfilment Centre to deliver to your customer or you fulfil the orders yourself.

You get access to the millions of customers who browse Amazon, a secure and trusted market place for selling and dedicated support to help you along the way.

Give it a go !!

Being Environmentally Aware: 21st May 2019

Tuesday, May 21st, 2019

Playing our small part and being responsible for our own footprint, is our starting point with environmental issues.

CD, DVD & BluRay has traditionally been a very plastic orientated industry, with the CD Jewell Case and the Standard Plastic DVD box being for many years, the norm for packing and presenting your discs.

Over the last few years, and in conjunction with current responsible thinking we have been  keen to promote our Eco-Friendly casing options.

We have developed our own templates and sourced FSC certified Sustainable card stock to provide our customers with a high quality, low price, ecofriendly range for CD, DVD & BluRay packaging.

These include:

  • Single Card Wallets
  • Double Card Wallets
  • Lancing Packs
  • 4 page Digipaks

Cd single card wallets

As a result of this we have noticed a huge shift in the choice our customers make when deciding on their cases.

Our card wallets by far exceed the popularity of all our plastic options.

At the same time we are very respectful of peoples right to choose and still stock all the traditional case choices. Where possible and where the quality is good enough, we use eco plastic versions like the ecolite Amaray cases for our traditional dvd packaging.These are both fully recycled and  recycleable.

 

All of the templates for designing any of our card products can be found here:
