Duplication vs. Replication

Perfect Image Video will duplicate your CD or DVD disc when you need them in small quantities of up to 500 copies. On occasion we will do more than 500 disc when your dead line is 2 to 3 days. We duplicate your disc directly from your CD or DVD master and each duplicate copy will be an exact match. Once the duplication process is complete we have several printers to print your image directly on the disc and are capable of printing over 2000 disc per day. If your order requires paper printing we have a full print department to handle any size order. The advantage of the duplication process is you can order any quantity and the turnaround is usually 24 – 48 hours.

CD/DVD replication is done when you order 500 copies or more. Replicated discs are stamped from a glass master that is made from your original CD or DVD. The glass master is used as a mold to create an exact replica of your master disc. The process involves injecting melted high grade plastic onto the master mold to form the disc. We then apply a thin layer of metal to provide a reflection needed for the CD or DVD players to read. The metal layer is coated with lacquer and UV cured for protection. The disc face is now ready to be printed on and packaged to your needs. The advantage of replication is a lower price based on quantity. Most orders are complete in 5 – 7 working days.
