Yes. Discmakers is a great company for replication. Great customer service and product.

Also, is a cool company that will take orders and fulfill products. They take $4 per copy though. And they don't replicate.

I'll second Discmakers for replication/duplication and retail packaging. I believe they have a new owner now but service still remains top notch. I am currently checking out Filmbaby and wonder if anyone else has any experience with them.

I should have posted this when this thread first went online but using Diskmakers and Filmbaby is a very good idea and they cater to a lot of independent Producers. With FilmBaby, you have to pay a setup fee but they will waiver it if your discs were replicated by Discmakers. Incase you didnít know, those 2 companies are business partners.

Another way you can sell your stuff is by making deals with websites that sells similar films. Just tell them if their interested in receiving a free sample DVD for they to see if their willing to carry it and if they decide to give you a huge order like 100 to 300 discs, you can have them pay first and duplicate the discs afterwards. This way with the money they give you, you can have DiscMakers duplicate 1,000 discs and keep the rest at your house for future orders. Anything less than 1,000 and itíll cost a bit more to duplicate each disc. You end up not spending anything out of your pocket to begin with and with the rest of the money you made with your first order; you can use it for advertisement although itís safer to have Film Baby mail one copy to your house first to see the quality of the disc and the package before you make a deal with a website.

Distributing films yourself may seam like to much work but if you do it correctly, you will end up getting more money this way.

I plan on doing the exact things with a couple of my friends who have has at least one documentary that will be released this year.
