Company that will create fewer than 100 CDs?

Recommended Posts

When and if I finally get to a point of wanting to have CDs created, anyone have a good recommendation? I have no commercial aspirations, so even 100 is massive overkill. I am thinking more in the 20-30 range. I know I'd pay more per CD to do it, just looking for the best match of quality to price. Yeah if push comes to shove I could make them myself, but that would first off be a pain and second off not come out nearly as professional.

 

So far what I've found are these 2:

 

Best one so far, but 50 is the minimum: https://www.discmakers.com

 

This site will do any amount you want, but the price is crazy for smaller numbers (e.g. 50 CDs for about $200, and for only 20 CDs, about $160); I get it will cost more per unit but hoping to do better: https://www.mixonic.com/cd/

just burn your own and label them...how good they look is up to you. I've done it in the past with excellent results.

If you 'have no commercial aspirations', why are you so concerned about how 'professional' they look? :idk:

jeez...okay: here is an old thread where I gave a couple of links .

https://www.harmonycentral.com/forum/forum/Music_Bus/acapella-13/31411251-where-do-i-get-short-run-professional-cd-s-duplicated

 

back then, I found both those links by googling 'short run CD replication'...maybe there are other options now? Your thing, you search...

:thu: Thx. So you used either or both of those places? Happy w/their work?

? I did search; that's how I found the links in the OP. Re. other options, there are like a billion lol (prompting the thread). Trying to separate the wheat from the chaff and all. It appears Discmakers is one of the "biggies" in the biz, but that doesn't mean they're great.

 

 

100 might not be overkill if you plan to pass any out to friends and family.
Yeah it really is...you must have a lot more friends than me, or a way bigger family!

 

And for the record, discmakers is CDBaby.

Actually, I did my own art, printing, burning and labeling for many years at about the same cost as the replicators. I used to be the Master Scheduler for the replication arm of Technicolor, at that time the largest replicator in the US, and we occasionally farmed out to smaller houses. My best suggestion for short run is to find a local company near to where you are, and use them. To save yourself time and money, if you are capable in photoshop or similar, do your own art layout including titling.

CDBaby is a subsidiary of discmakers. They are the same company and their offerings are essentially the same.

 

I know this because they are my client.

Thx but there are none. Not exactly living in NYC. :)

Oh I am doing all of that and would submit via whatever template/etc they have. Just need the duplication and putting together the CD case itself, basically.
