CD DUPLICATIONThis method is the one with which most people are familiar. CD duplication involves taking a blank, recordable disc (CDR or DVDR) and burning the information onto it with a laser. Most of us have done this using a CD burner on our home computers. This method is typically used for smaller runs of 100 to 300 units.
CD REPLICATIONThe CD replication method is typically used for high volumes of 500 discs or more. It involves creating a glass master. That master is then used to press CDs and DVDs. These discs are essentially molded from scratch and created with the information already on them.
