The Standard Wallet uses no plastic. It's stylish, compact and still offers 4-6 full panels for your artwork. Your CD or DVD slips into the inside pocket comfortably and offers just enough room to add an optional insert. The 2 pocket version lets you add an additional disc, or leaves more room for an insert. CDs in custom wallets are lighter than Digipacks which will save you money on shipping, and take up less space when you're on the road. Putting your duplicated CDs or DVDs in Wallets shows good taste, and screams quality. Everybody loves the Wallet! Our Wallets use 100% recyclable materials and are printed using green friendly ink.
How long will my job take?
Once you have placed an order and we have received all of your elements (audio, graphics...etc) pre-production starts. You will receive PDF proofs via email within 1-2 business days. Once you approve the proofs day zero of production time starts. Our standard production time for duplication is 4-6 business days, and 12-14 business days for replicated jobs. Shipping time comes after that and depends on which shipping method you choose and where we are shipping to.Here is an example schedule for duplication / replication:
Duplication vs. Replication
Duplication (less than 500)
Duplicated discs (often called burned discs) are made by burning tiny holes in the dye layer of a recordable CDR or DVDR. It is the same process as when you burn a disc on your home computer. This is more cost effective for small runs and takes much less time to produce. We use the highest quality CD-Rs on the market to ensure maximum quality and compatibility. There is not really any audible difference between replication and duplication. There might be a small percentage of older CD players or car stereos that is unable to play duplicated CDs. This is rare, but it does occasionally happen.
Replication (more than 500)
Replicated discs (often called pressed discs) are made by first creating a glass master, then stampers that make exact clones using high-tech injection-molding. A coat of reflective aluminum is added and finally it gets sealed with a protective coat of lacquer hardened by ultraviolet light. Because of this extensive set up process, it is common to require a minimum of 500 discs for replication.
