PRESSING CD'S

DBCage 6 May 2004 16:16

Can anyone recommend a company/bus. who press (not burn) small numbers of CD's? It seems nobody will do anything less than 500. We are after 50 only...

Any advice much appreciated

Are you after a pressed CD for look or compatability (ie. playback) reasons?

If you want the look of a screenprinted cd, try a company called Microcare in Murrumbeena(spell?), they sell (and will print for you), direct to cd thermal colour printers which run at 1200 lpi (better than screenprint quality).

If you want the guarantee of playback, pressed discs are the way to go. The reason why a 500 run is a minimum, is due to the mechanical/physical process, Glass pressing masters are very expensive to make, when the costs are amortised over 500 units, the per unit price is cost effective. Plants won't stop production for less. THIS IS NOT A BURN PROCESS. It is a physical stamping process, not unlike Vinyl in principle.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Thanks Minuteman. Keen on pressing for compatability/playback reasons so looks like we may have to fork out. Thanks for advice though...
