CD Manufacturing: 5 Things to Clarify With Your CD Manufacturing Company


You have been searching high and low for the best CD manufacturing company to duplicate or replicate your album. Of course you want to make sure that the company you choose has the adequate infrastructure to meet high quality standards. You have invested a lot of money and effort on your music and you do not want to screw it up because of poor sound quality.

Aside from the quality, there are many other things that you should consider in choosing your CD manufacturing company like the location, company profile and reputation, costs, and many others. You need to select the best among the best by weighing the pros and cons of each company. You can only do this by talking to them personally and narrowing down your choices and talking. There are plenty of things that you should know in order to make the best choice for your project. Here are some of them of them:

Check with the Company about the exact time required to complete the task

This is important if you are following a strict schedule. Of course it would be advantageous to you and your sales if you choose a CD manufacturing company that can finish good quality work sooner.

Make sure that the CDs can be played in a variety of players

So that many people can listen to your music and no one would complain or return CDs if they’re not compatible with their players. Yes, there are some CD manufacturing companies who still do not know what they are doing and you have to ask them specific questions just to make sure you get what you expect from them.

Negotiate for a better deal

Do not simply say amen to whatever the CD manufacturing company offers. Fix your budget and haggle to death. Some companies quote really high prices because they expect you to negotiate. Tell them that you have been scouting for the best deals and they would surely give you a good deal. Then haggle some more.

Ask for the shipping method

This is important. Ask for the shipping method so you would know how the final product will be delivered and how much. Do not be hesitant to ask them nitty gritty details like how long it takes to arrive, who’s responsible if something gets broken or lost, etc. These things are very useful and should be given much importance to prevent shipping disasters in the future.

Check the privacy policy of the CD Manufacturing Company

Just to be sure and be clear that your project is in good hands and that no personal information will be divulged to other companies. Make sure you read the fine print thoroughly before starting the project of your chosen CD manufacturing house.

I hope that this article will help you find the best CD manufacturing company. Good luck!
