Many of our customers ask:
“What’s the difference between duplication and replication?”
Duplication is the process used when ordering less than 10,000 units. The process has less steps than replication and can take less time – a better option for customers wanting a “small” order. Duplication uses a laser, just like your computer, to burn CDs one by one, although multiple CDs can be burned at a time.
Replication is the process used when ordering more than 10,000 units. There are more steps involved in order to ensure 100% of quality is passed on from CD to CD. Replication uses a process called stamping. A master CD is made and stamped onto each replicated CD. Replication is much more precise, which also allows for greater margin of error. The environment must be kept sanitized and clean to maintain perfect replication from start to finish.
