What is CD replication anyway? The process of CD replication begins with making a glass master that will be used to create your CDs. The glass master is inserted into an injection molding press, where your CDs are pressed using polycarbonate pellets that are melted and your digital content is embedded into the polycarbonate disc. A reflective layer is added, and a lacquer finish is applied to seal and protect the data. A replicated CD will play in all CD players, will last longer, and is less expensive when manufacturing larger quantities of discs.

When should I choose replication over duplication? It depends on the project. If your content is music and you are ordering a thousand discs or more, go with replication. If your content is data, and the life span of the content is less then a year, choose duplication. If you have a new album but you want to make less than a thousand units, choose CD duplication. There is little or no difference in the performance of a replicated CD vs. a duplicated CD. Duplication has become important because of changes in the market and the need for shorter runs. The best thing that has happened in our industry is the printing and packaging quality; it has only gotten better and less expensive to produce high quality CDs. The CD consumer has never had higher quality products to choose from at such amazing prices.
