Complete DIY CD DVD DuplicationThere are a lot of reasons why you can produce your own discs instead of hiring a CD duplication service. First, it saves money because you can produce the exact number of discs you need without any shortages or overages. Second, your discs are ready immediately with no waiting. Finally, you can experience the thrill of achievement in putting together your own project.

Before you jump into the DIY duplication world, it is important to take a moment and evaluate your needs. How many discs do you copy per month, and will your needs increase in the future? Do you copy CDs, DVDs, or both? Will you need to print basic text or full-color prints on your discs? Also, how do you plan to distribute them to your audience? Finally, what is your monthly budget for discs, ink cartridges, and other consumables?

You may find it helpful to spend some time browsing our website at to get an idea of what equipment we have available. Here is a quick rundown of the equipment you may need to get started:

CD/DVD Duplicator Tower
With a duplicator tower, you can produce hundreds of discs quickly and easily. Our stand-alone disc duplicators do not require a computer connection to operate. We offer both CD and DVD/CD towers with 1 to 50 recording drives and high-capacity hard drives for the ultimate duplication solution!

The duplicator is the heart and soul of every duplication center, so make sure to pick the right one! If you constantly have deadlines to meet, it is strongly recommended that you look into our Rapid Replacement and extended warranties for that extra peace of mind.

Disc Printer
It’s hard to go wrong with a dedicated inkjet disc printer from major brand names such as Primera, Microboards, Epson and more! With capacities ranging from 20 to over 300 discs per job, there’s sure to be one for your needs. For full-disc prints with photo realistic quality, consider our line of thermal disc printers from manufacturers such as Primera, EPSON, and TEAC.

Blank Media
Remember that your project is only as good as the discs it is burned on! That’s why we offer Grade-A recordable CDs and DVDs in all formats, sizes, and printable surfaces. We stock quality brands including Taiyo Yuden, Verbatim, and our own USDM discs for the best quality available.

Printable Goods
Give your package a professional look by printing your own CD/DVD case inserts and entrapments. We have front and back tray card inserts for CD jewel cases, which are great for musicians and software companies. You can also choose from our selection of printable CD/DVD labels and label kits for the easiest on-demand solution.
