Large Quantity CD Manufacturing/DVD Manufacturing

This is a special order form for larger production runs of 15,000 to 3 million cds / dvds.

Mass qty CD and DVD manufacturing is a little different from smaller runs. In a production run of 100,000 for example, every penny per disc will cost you $1000 out of your budget. Jobs of this magnitude really need to be custom quoted. Here are some things we'll need to know in order to prepare you the best quote possible:

CD Manufacturing, Large Quantity, Project: Atticus - 6pp tall digipak 2cd slipcase matte lam spot gloss
CD Manufacturing, Large Quantity - Project: Atticus

Quantity: Runs larger than 10K definitely need to be customized. 20K, 25K 50K, 100K, 250K, 500K, 1million+ are typical price breaks.

Disc Printing: silkscreening or offset printing available. In the very large qty range we may need to know number of colors and preference for silkscreening or offset printing. This is also important to determine machine avilability.

Packaging and CD Distribution Method: Do you need a retail box with registration card that's store ready? hangtags? Are these being direct mailed and is weight important? tell us what you need to do and let us guide you on packaging options that can save you significant dollars.

Production Time of Year: When will you be producing these? Can you give us a time of year? We will hold quotes for as long as we can, but a large qty quote will reflect very current raw material costs and freight rates.

Turn Time: Mass qty cd manufacturing can be done in as little as a few days to several months. A realistic schedule for mass quantity cd production is 4 to 6 weeks. This allows for matchprints and test disc to be reviewed and approved, production, return

shipping, and if necessary, customs. We do some special million piece government projects annually in under 10 day timeframe including shipping though, so it can be done. Give us your requirements and we'll work with your schedule. If you have a rush schedule, let us know if a partial shipments will help. Significant savings can be had in the freight alone if it is not rushed.

Shipping: Where will these discs be distributed from? If you're not exactly sure, can you narrow it down to which coast? We can ship to seaports, airports, to distribution houses, or to your company doorstep.

CD / DVD Fulfillment: We can help by droppoing your discs off at the post office if you have a bulk mailing permit. If you need help with online or telephone sales and small qty shipping, may we suggest one of our partners on our Fulfilment and Distribution Page (CD & DVD)

CD Barcodes and Distribution: Do you need a barcode, how will you be distributing this title, through retail stores? Through mail order distribution outlets like Amazon? Some distribution prefers a bar code, some use their own.

Quote Request Form


Please tell us about your project. Each reply is customized to your needs by a specialist (quotes are handled personally by our sales staff), and you'll receive a reply very quickly. If you get stuck in the terminology, feel free to choose the "Guide me" field. There is also a "Notes" section below where you can tell us lots of information.

Procedure & what's included...

Art Preflighting
First step is uploading your art. We'll take a look at your files to make sure they are laid out correctly.
PDF SoftProofs
Next we generate PDF SoftProofs so we can make sure the basic components of your art files are correct. This is the place to catch typos or font issues.
Film Generation
After approval of softproofs, we go to film. Film is required for silkscreening or offset printing and gives you high quality end results.
HardProofs- Printed Test Disc (with Data) and Color Matchprints
A printed test disc is the only way to be absolutely sure printing on a disc will be the way you want it. We include these on all of our projects - mass manufacturing & small qty. CMYK Color matchprints with trimlines are included for paper items. FedEx shipping of proofs are also included. No need to return.
Disc Manufacturing
After approvals, we start mass manufacturing. We manufacture to exact quantity. No surprise overrun charges with Megalodon!
Printed Packaging Manufacturing
Printed packaging can made before your discs to help your schedule, or made at the same time. We'll do everything we can to meet your schedule (and we're good at it!) and there are no rush fees! Custom & eco-friendly packaging is encouraged!

Complimentary bar codes and a wide choice of distribution assistance also available for our retail clients.
