Replication vs. Duplication vs. Blank Discs – What’s the difference?

Replication is the original, traditional method of manufacturing optical discs (CDs) from raw materials. Your source is first turned into a glass master. Then molds and stampers are then created, and finally each CD is made one at a time on high-speed molding equipment. Your data, audio, or video is “stamped” into the CD during this process and then it’s off to silk screening. Replication always includes full color printing. Turn time is generally 10-12 business days, and some rush services are available.

Duplication uses pre-manufactured CD-Rs with a blank inner layer. Your source (data, audio, or video) is duplicated onto the highest quality media and verified bit-for-bit. With very little setup time needed, CD-Rs can be produced quickly in small or large quantities. Disc Hounds has the capacity to produce thousands per day. Standard turn times are 1 to 3 business days. Same day and 24 hour rush services are available. Duplication includes B&W or full color printing. Glossy discs are available for an extra charge.

Blank Discs are pre-manufactured CD-Rs with a blank inner layer. Choose from B&W or full color printing digital printing – or silk screen printing with higher quantities. Glossy discs for digital printing are available for an extra charge.
