The cost of CD Manufacturing is today so low due to the competitive nature of the industry that you can produce your product very cheaply. The total cost for manufacture of a product is likely to be a maximum of 10% of the actual market price.
CD Replication services allow you to copy high volumes of CDs from a CD master or source CD. Usually a company or individual who wishes to share content such as images, software or data will use the services of a CD Replicator.
CD Replication services are usually used for the replication of discs in volumes above 500. CD Replication costs can often be prohibitive in shorter runs (ie 500 to 1000) due to the requirement for setup costs.

CDRW or re-writable CDs are less widely used today outside of the home or the office. Today’s big players are write-once CDs, or CDR. CDR are used widely across the world and can be bought very cheaply on the High street. CDR are manufactured in plants across the world with quality usually directly relative to price.
The CD disc is actually just a small, transparent plastic disc. Very cheap and easy to make. The plastic disc becomes a CDR when a foil film is coated onto the disc’s top side. It is interesting that most people are careful to protect the underside of their discs from scratches, abrasions and other damage. The reality is that the top side of the disc is probably more sensitive to data loss. Using the wrong pen or spilling any substance to the top side of a cheapÂ silver disc can cause immediate damage, so be warned. CD Media of a higher quality will have a coated top side that will ensure the integrity of the data under normal day to day conditions. Be warned however that some white topped CDR discs can be very cheap mixed media almost picked off the manufacturing plant floor, or from dodgy importers who want to make a quick buck.
Unbranded CDR is usually bought in packs of 100 in a cello wrap. Often described as being on a spindle the media will usually arrive spindle less – the term is really a figure of speech. Unbranded CDR from a good source will be ideal for most daily purposes. Without guarantee however it should be avoided where you require long term data integrity.
Often branded CDR will come from the same factory as the unbranded.
Other blank CD products might include coloured CDs or shaped CDs, 8cm CDs or business card CDs.Â These can be ideal but you should always assess the requirement of your target market and installed hardware base. Slot drived CD readers might, for example, not eject an 8cm once it has been inserted.
Lately more customers have invested in their own CD printers, thus printable CDs are more popular than ever.

Designers often find the smaller inkjet CD and DVD printers produce results beyond the capability of out- sourced screen printing.

Whatever the requirement professional CD Services are often required for the production of content that is suitable for the intended audience. It is vital that the CD Production Service ensures the CD is compatible with the intended hardware. Compatibility might require that a CD can play back as audio on a hi-fi while auto running interactively on a PC. The trick for the CD Service Provider would be to ensure that it is cross platform, ie working on both a Mac and a PC, and is recognised as a data CD rather than an audio CD when inserted into a computer. This level of professionalism is often beyond the home user.
CD Duplication Services are vital for companies and individuals that have not yet purchased their own CD Duplicator on which they can perform their CD Duplication tasks.
