Duplication image

Duplication involves using blank media and burning the data onto the disc as you would on your home PC, but on a much larger scale.

The reason the term "burn" is used is because the CD-writer, or burner, literally burns the data onto a writable CD or DVD. The laser in a CD-writer can be cranked up to a more powerful level than an ordinary CD-ROM laser. This enables it to engrave thousands of 1's and 0's onto a CD or DVD.

The result is a perfect disc copy.

Replication is a form of disc manufacturing that involves pressing the disc which is done via a glass master. The polycarbonate is squirted onto the master so that the data is permanantly etched into the data layer. Reflective and protective surfaces are then added to allow a laser to pick up the information and give the disc durability. The result is the same as a bought disc from your local CD/DVD retailer.

There are a number of variables that you need to consider:-

Deadline When do you need the job?
Quantity How many copies do you require?
Price How critical is price to you?
Design Complexity Is it a simple black text print or colour print? Is it Process printing or is is Spot Printing.
