media duplication

As you’ve no doubt guessed from our name, duplication is right at the core of our business.

A combination of high quality media backed up by a thorough quality control procedure ensures reliable playback every time.


  • CD audio

  • DVD & Blu-ray video

  • USB media

media printing

We have a range full range of ways to print your CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray and USB media.

Whether using CMYK, Pantone, metallic or fluorescent colours, we’ll make sure that your media looks fantastic.


Digital media will always lack the tactile pleasure of leafing through the pages of a booklet or poring over some handsome artwork. One of the main selling points of physical media over digital is that the product is ‘to have and to hold’. With great packaging you create the right impression from the start.


  • Fully equipped in-house printing facility

  • Off-the-shelf templates

  • Bespoke designs


Once the print and manufacture of your project is complete, it is essential that the final details don’t let the rest of the project down.

We have an excellent mix of automatic packaging equipment and experienced, quality-conscious staff. 

Working along side our sister company, Apollo Mediapack, we make sure that care is taken throughout the whole process.

"I would highly recommend Alpha duplication. They were very helpful and professional throughout the whole process of getting my album printed and duplicated. They double checked all of my album art with me, and the product I received was of a very high quality. I believe it is of a better quality than if I had gone else where. Thank you Alpha duplication! I really appreciate everything you did! "

Short-run Duplication

By | CD Duplication | No Comments

Although there are now multiple ways to distribute music, revenue from physical formats still exceeds that from downloads and streaming combined. The market has undeniably changed and whereas CDs used to be produced in thousands every time, now smaller quantities are often the order of the day. The difficulty with this is that traditional manufacture is not well-suited to producing fewer than a thousand units at a time. A different approach is needed to fill this gap.

What Do We Mean by Short-run Duplication?

CDs can be manufactured in one of two ways; replication and duplication. Whilst the first is ideal when thousands of discs are needed, the latter is perfect for smaller quantities, typically between 50-1000 units. Rather than being a mass-production process, with short-run duplication, discs are printed and then duplicated individually. Read More
