DVD Duplication Costs

So what are the exact costs associated with DVD duplication and print?

The main cost is always the blank DVD-R that is going to be used for the process. There are hundreds of different brands of recordable DVD available these days from the cheap supermarket self branded discs right up to the high quality manufacturers such as Sony and Verbatim. Some DVD duplication companies will just use the very cheapest media they are able to source in order to keep advertised prices of products as low as possible. These low prices can look attractive to the potential customer but beware, cheap prices usually means a cheap disc is being used and therefore a higher risk of disc errors.

The second most significant cost of DVD duplication is the print method to be used. Again, cheaper advertised prices will usually be due to cheap inferior print techniques such as black only inkjet print. Inkjet printing of discs can be useful in the home environment but for commercial duplicators results are usually poor with the risk of the print smudging. A far more preferred print method for low quantity orders is thermal print. Thermal printing can be black only or full colour transfer to the disc surface. This method gives a smudge proof gloss finish which looks very professional.

If you are seeking high quality duplication then the 2 main factors to consider are the type of disc being used and the printing method. A reputable duplicator will always use the highest quality discs available and a thermal process for the printing.
