Professionally packaged CDs or DVDs are created by one of two processes: duplication or replication. For both options, a variety of packaging options are offered, including plastic cases, paper sleeves or printed cardboard sleeves (often called digipaks).

Typical costs:

What should be included:
  • Packaging options include paper sleeves, plastic jewel (CD) cases, plastic Amaray (DVD) cases and printed cardboard sleeves. Photos of many packaging options are available at MJK Disc Production[8] .
  • CD or DVD designers should let the client see a final proof before it is printed.
Additional costs:
  • Ground shipping for a bulk order of CDs or DVDs typically adds $10-$15 (typical for 100 copies) or $50-$130 (typical for 1,000 copies). Rush orders are more expensive. An order of 1,000 blank CDs in jewel cases from Ultra Products[9] ships for $57, for example.
Shopping for cd or dvd packaging:
  • CD or DVD duplication is a process that "burns" content from a master to a pre-existing DVD or CD disc, which is most often used for orders of 1,000 copies or fewer. Replication, a process where data is burned from the master copy while simultaneously creating a new CD or DVD disc from an injection mold, is best for orders of 1,000 copies or more.
  • Before placing a large CD or DVD order, contact the company to request samples. Oasis Disc Manufacturing[10] sends potential customers samples of its Eco-Packaging along with a coupon for future orders.
