The Digipack Lite™ is a revolutionary new way to present CDs or DVDs in a sleek, professional looking package at a very affordable price. Unlike standard digipacks it utilizes 4/4 printing technology, which allows for uninterrupted panoramic imagery on both the outside and inside of the package.
You have the choice between standard plastic digipack trays and our 100% recycled flexi-trays, made solely from recycled water bottles.
How it differs from a standard digipack
A standard digipack is made by printing all 4 or 6 panels on the same side of a flat sheet of card stock, then die-cutting, folding and gluing it together. This makes the thickness of each panel twice as thick as the paper stock it is printed on. This also makes the inside of the spine white as this needs to be cut off in order to fold it. The Digipack Lite™ is printed utilizing 4/4 (or double sided) printing technology with full bleed, so when it is cut and folded there are no white borders or cutouts. (Unless the white is part of your design, of course. :-) This makes it lighter than a standard digipack which saves on shipping costs. The possibility of choosing our 100% recycled flexi-trays makes it even lighter and more environmentally friendly.

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.
