Data Disc Duplication

CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs are a versatile, secure means of storing and distributing data.

Whether you need them for presentations, software installers or archives, our optical discs will not let you down. As an ISO9001 accredited company, you can be confident that the quality of the media, the print and the packaging we provide will always be first-rate.

How much data can I fit on to a disc?

Although CD, DVD and Blu-ray have different functions for the audio and video markets, when it comes to data the only difference between them is the amount of information that they can hold.

CD duplication – 650 Mb
DVD duplication- Single Layer – 4.7 Gb
DVD duplication – Dual Layer – 9.4 Gb
Blu-ray duplication- Single Layer – 25 Gb
Blu-ray duplication – Dual Layer – 50 Gb

Remember, the formats are backward compatible, i.e. a CD will play on a Blu-ray drive but a Blu-ray disc will not play on a CD drive.

How long does it take to get my finished discs?

Our standard turnaround is an amazing 2 to 3 days, including printing and packaging.

How do I set up my artwork?

The template for a CD or DVD can be downloaded here and for a Blu-ray here. Packaging style & templates can be found here.

We can take artwork in most design packages, though a print-ready PDF is our preferred method.
Once your artwork is ready, send it over. Like the master, it is essential that the artwork is correct before the copies are made. To make sure, we will send you a PDF of your artwork to approve prior to printing.
If you don’t have design expertise, don’t worry, we have a team of artworkers who will work with your files or a brief to make sure your finished discs look even better than you could imagine.

Frequently asked questions

How do I make my disc play automatically when inserted into a drive?

The Autorun function is any easy addition to a disc that is to be used on a Windows platform. All you need to do is create a small file that will tell the computer which file to run. For further details visit the Microsoft website. Autorun is only available on Windows machines as Apple removed the functionality on Macintosh computers some years ago.  If you would like us to add an autorun file to your disc, please let us know.
