We've been delighted with the service from Master Duplicating in Scottsdale, AZ. Owner Janita Cooper is an NSA member and long-time supporter.

Heartily recommends ELS Productions (for duplication and packaging) on price and friendly, efficient service.

Advises there are three classes of replicators, depending on quantity and price. In general, they are:

  • Pressing plants: These work for 100K units a year or so. If less than 1000/month, try the following.
  • Brokers: Companies that broker smaller orders with the pressing plants. The prices are a little higher but the service usually a lot better. His company uses two separate brokers for the roughly 50K units a year they need.
  • Finally, quick copy folks that can produce any quantity. He uses them for quick turnaround stuff. The cost is at least twice and sometimes three times as high. A word of caution: The short run copy folks copy on the CD-R format which is not as good a quality. This is the same format you would use on your own home computer when burning a CD.

Al recommends creating a relationship with a broker.

I am using and am quite pleased with:

I am producing 7000 CDs quarterly. Great 4-color packaging as well. 67 cents per at these quantities.

They are fast, reasonably priced and easy to work with. The have their own studio if you live nearby. They also have a printer that prints first-class four-color in single sheets so that you don't need to buy 1,000 to get a good price.
