recommended DVD duplication services

Discmaster seems to be the best known, but can you recommend any other company that you've used that you're happy with?

I've read some terrible reviews about other companies - where EVERYTHING is HORRIBLE - but they sound so bad that I'm guessing the reviewers are just "flamers"

anyone used nationwide? quickturn?

thanks

Re: recommended DVD duplication services

I use discmakers.com. They have an online duplication design software which works well and some of the lowest prices around. I have been a customer since 2005 and had thousands of duplicated and replicated discs made by them. I normally have them do retail projects which includes disc printing, case, case jacket printing, bar code, shrink wrap and assembly. Where things start to get expensive is if you have them do design, authoring and mastering. If you provide your own DVD master you can save a bundle.

Re: recommended DVD duplication services

Hi Robert,

I've had a couple of runs done recently at Kunaki -- CD/DVD manufacturing and publishing service, at a flat rate of $1.75 per DVD including color disc print, color case insert, and shrink wrap.

There is no customer service really - the whole premise is that it is self-service and fully automated. You upload the DVD and your graphics (which you can preview to verify proper finished look) and place the order online.

Projects are stored for a period of time if you need to do a re-order. They can also set up some type of storefront for your customers to order direct. Also do fulfillment if you supply a spreadsheet of customers to them.

Thanks

I've used DVD Copycat out of San Francisco a few times in the past. Really good customer service and I think great pricing.

I checked out Copycat, and they looked pretty good, but they don't do printed inserts. :(

Re: recommended DVD duplication services

Kunaki does offer a color printed insert card inside the case at the same price. I'd not needed that option, but is included in the price. I just did the standard sleeve insert on outside of case.

Thanks
