Anyone recommend some CD Duplication/Creation companies?


Hello! I'm a musician who is finishing up in the studio and is looking at CD duplication prices. I live in the Seattle area and would prefer to not pay more than $50 for shipping -- or not at all. Anyway, I've been referred to a few places, but I want to shop around to more than 3 places. I trust the people on these forums -- where else would you guys recommend? Is there a place you wouldn't recommend? Nothing needs to be rushed, so I don't need one of those 2-3 day service places...
So far, I've checked out: DiscMakers, DiscMasters and Super Digital in Oregon.
Thanks so much!

Close to you, they are not. The least expensive, they are not. However, if you are after excellent service and attention to detail, you will do well to check out Oasis. My studio works with them, exclusively.

Oasis was suggested by my fiancé's co-worker, too. However, I received the highest quote at Oasis for $1.60 a CD for my project, not including shipping or tax. They are awfully pricey. So far, I've received the lowest rate at SuperDigital (almost $.40 lower!) and I don't have to pay sales tax since it's Oregon and only $50 shipping. I have also seen their work firsthand, them being recommended to me by the engineer I work with. They do professional work. I'm still shopping around, but they have been the lowest so far. Oasis seems to be highly recommended, but they come at a price.

Try these guys. I had my project done by them. They were the only company I found that would do on disc printing for CD duplication. Everyone else used labels and only did on disc printing for CD replication, which was more expensive. They also didn't have a minimum. I only wanted 100 and everyone else had either a 300 to 500 disc minimum.

I'm quite fond of DiscMakers myself. BTW what the hell is this thing?http://www.sweetwater.com/forum/images/smilies/bunny.gif

Oasis is the company some of my friends have used. Not the cheapest but they have great promo and distribution packaged in their price.

Sorry, Oliver Quillia no longer represents that Rochester company from New York City. I found out that he was a Video Producer In New York City.

am artist(visual) and got request to use my image for CD of one famous Canadian artist.(well known internationally).(he is not Madonna level but in gold , platinum sales (what is it i dont know exactly)
I have no idea how much charge for it..Please help..

A good friend of mine does art for music as his career (very successful, works with major label artists mostly). I've seen him charge everything from hundreds of dollars to literally many tens of thousands of dollars. It seems to depend a lot on the circumstances and budget of the artist.

our band has decided to go with oasis for our duplication. even though they are a little more expensive, all the extras make it well worth it. most of the extras pertain to helping get your stuff distributed,...iTunes, Amazon.com, cdBaby, TowerRecords, and other stuff. I guess is just depends on what you are going to use your cd for. If you haven't looked yet, I would go to the website and check out all the details. Good luck!

discweaver.com is good. they do short run up to 800 pieces. I bought some from them on ebay before they got a website. Their shipping is, by far the least of them all, and I recieved it in 2 days from the day it was shipped.

They not close to you but I would choose Ahlmedia.
I have used discmakers but I would much prefer to work with the good people at Ahlmedia. They offer very competitive pricing and awesome customer service. Their website is http://www.ahlmedia.com
