    Help me duplicate CDs!

    I'm a struggling singer and recently I have completed my first album.
    I wish to publish my album and I'm looking for CD duplication provider
    with reasonable price and good quality. Does anyone have any idea or
    advice?

    I'm guessing that by "struggling" you mean you don't have a whole lot of capital to invest up-front. CD duplicator services will produce you a CD in a jewel case for a good price, but only if you're buying in bulk. A good option might be to look at print-on-demand services such as Lulu.com. You provide the CD data, they take care of the rest (web store, CD production, delivery). They charge a set fee per CD (£3-odd), anything you charge over that is yours to keep.

    Another option is to duplicate the CDs and jewel cases yourself. Look on eBay to get an idea of prices for CD duplicator "robots" - around £500 seems the going rate. You'll also need something capable of printing your case inserts (any inkjet printer, although it's worth getting a half-decent one at around £150), blank case insert media (pre-perforated to cut and fold to fit in a jewel case), and of course blank CDs and jewel cases. I'd reckon an initial investment of £1000 should get you a decent setup and an initial stock of CDs to sell.

    Get yourself a blog/MySpace page, provide links to some of your tracks as MP3s. Make some of your tracks available as a podcast. Get your tracks into iTunes and similar. See about providing a Flash widget to let people do remixes of your tracks and upload them to your website.

    Consider USB stick instead of CD. USB sticks are cheap these days, and bulk sellers will generally place whatever data and printed logo you want on each drive for a small added fee, you could probably offer your album on a USB stick for under £10.

    Re: Help me duplicate CDs!

    Hey I'm also a musician like you and was in a similar situation when I
    had wanted to publish my first album. One of my friends showed me the
    site called www.easymultimedia.co.uk which provides CD duplication
    software. They have about ten years of experience in the field and
    assure the quality. So just check it and I am sure you will find it
    great duplicating software.

    The site he points to looks legitimate enough.

    I agree gwendes! Perhaps we should make newbies take an IT test!

    I think they are both the same person. Notice how the wrapping on the text is exactly the same on both posts. Be interesting to see if it was posted from the same IP number.
