Act now for Christmas CD manufacture deadlines.

If you are looking to undertake a CD or DVD manufacture project in time for a Christmas deadline then you will need to act fast. November is the busiest time of the year for CD pressing plants when record labels demand high volumes of product for the Christmas market. Consequently many plants run beyond capacity in November and hence delays or extended leadtimes can be common for CD replication orders.

If you have strict Christmas deadlines then orders for CD or DVD replication should be placed at the begining of November or earlier. Due to high demand for CD and DVD on the run up to Christmas many companies experience a bottleneck effect trying to process new orders. This bottleneck at the processing stage together with risk of extended manufacture leadtimes can result in some orders taking around 3 weeks rather than the normal 2 weeks.

If you have no option but to cut things fine then make sure you have thoroughly checked over artwork specifications and masters before supplying the parts for processing. A simple artwork referral or read errors on a master can result in delayed processing and a manufacture deadline not being met. For artwork always check that you have supplied in CMYK colour and that all trim edges incorporate a 3mm bleed. Incorrect bleed is the biggest factor when having to refer artwork back to customers for re-supply.
