The dream of every musician is of the day when they release a new album that becomes an immediate hit. For many musicians, this day is not too far off.
When creating your artwork, please take in mind that most print houses (bulk cd duplication facilities included) print everything in CMYK format. CMYK refers to the different inks used to print your artwork.
Years ago I taped everything on my cassette recorder. It sure did get a lot of usage. Now I enjoy listening to all my music CDs. The quality is top-notch. We have certainly come along way that’s for sure. Don’t you agree?
Quality: The quality here refers to two qualities – quality of service and quality of CD and machines used for the job. The first thing that you should notice is the quality of service. The company must have a reputation of providing satisfactory service. Then enquire about the CDs or DVDs that they use for the duplication. Also ask about the technology and tools that are in utility by the company that does the burning of CDs in large numbers. The quality of tools is important for getting the project right.

If you decide you aren’t capable of doing the finished layout yourself, or don’t know where to begin, then paying your CD manufacturer to do the design for you is the easiest way to make sure everything is to spec. In this scenario communication becomes even more important. If you have a very definite idea of what you want then consider producing some printouts on your own to show the designer. Even if they’re not usable for the final product, producing printouts with whatever program you have available creates a great jumping off point for you and your designer to discuss ideas. It can also eliminate confusion, and drastically shorten the time needed to create your finished artwork.
The last benefit in favour of using a CD duplication service is less error. If you have tried to duplicate a CD in the past, chances are high that you slipped up at least once, creating the need to start all over. If it was not you, then the program you were using to do it was not operating properly. A CD duplication company is made up of professionals; they will know how to handle various situations, including faulty programs and CDs. With less lengthy and costly errors for you do deal with, your CDs will be in perfect, working shape.
