Using a CD or DVD duplicator is the fast, affordable way to get your product to market. Sweetwater’s wide range CD/DVD/USB duplicators will guarantee you never run out of albums at your next show or promos at your booth again.
When selecting your duplication system, the first thing to consider is how many duplicates you need, and how fast you need them. There are two main types of CD/DVD copiers: the tower duplicator with disc printer and the automated disc publisher.
A tower duplicator is a standalone device which looks like a PC case that includes one drive for a master disc and a number of trays for copies. Sweetwater’s tower duplicators include up to 15 spots for duplicates. If you are just starting out, one of our tower systems with up to 5 duplicate spots is a good option. However, if you plan to produce many copies on a daily basis, you’ll want to grab a tower with more spots. Towers are extremely easy and simple to use, and they do not require a computer to operate. Another advantage of the tower duplicator is that it’s inexpensive and can produce high-quality copies quickly. Also, many of our towers are expansive, so you can connect multiple units to work together if you need lots of copies.
Most of our customers couple their tower duplicator with a disc printer. Disc printers are completely automated devices that print directly onto the surface of your CDs and DVDs. If you need discs with your album art or company info printed right on top, check out our high-quality disc printers. Be sure to grab some replacement ink cartridges while you’re at it.
Looking for great automation? Then instead of the tower/printer system, look for an automated publisher. These devices have both a printer and a duplicator integrated into the system. Be advised that, while automated publishers offer a hands-off experience that many customers may prefer, they also make producing copies more time-consuming. Automated systems are also more expensive than towers, but they can copy hundreds of discs without supervision.
Do you need to make copies of a flash drive? In addition to CD and DVD copiers, you can also find USB duplicators on our site. These devices are a great option for promo materials, vendor materials, and anything else you want to preload onto a memory stick. These are a low-cost way to make 1:1 copies of USB drives without the wait.
