Sending CDs?

I have a client that wants to ship 6 audio CDs.

For the life of me I can't figure out the best search term but what I'm looking for is a service that will take the files, create nicely printed CDs in nicely printed CD cases and nicely post them to the nice customers.

I'm sure someone has mentioned such services on here before but can't find anything via search.

Any ideas or favorite companies?


Cheers,

I should point out I mean 6 at a time, not a grand total of 6!

Many registrars send out the software on your CD. For example, http://www.mycommerce.com/regnow
I think they would gladly do your job.

http://www.swiftcd.com/

There are others but this is one that specialises in the software market.

Mmm, SwiftCD is part of Digital River, which I wouldn't touch.

OK, thanks guys :o)

Now I know to search for 'duplication' there's plenty of options, cheers!

There is:

http://www.customcd.com/

But they also seem to be owned by the dreaded Digital River (ugh). Did they buy all the CD companies?

I bet that was a good investment.

That's exactly the kind of company I was looking for - if it didn't have the DR thing.

:o.

Seems like DR should AB test removing their branding - might just increase their sales ;)

CustomCD is spinning off from Digital River.  I use them, but I can't say that their support has been very good. I'm hoping it improves after the split. But, their pricing is OK, and their CD designer isn't bad, even though it uses Silverlight.

FYI - SwiftCD and CustomCD were both acquired by DR and merged into one operation.

@Nicholas: "Spinning off" - I see what you did there.  :-)

At PayPro Global, we offer back-up CD/DVD manufacturing, branding and shipment.

All you have to do is upload your CD cover artwork to EasyCommerce. Your client can select the option while submitting the payment and we will handle the rest.

you are very welcome.

Forgot to mention that in case our partners don't have a cover artwork, we can offer our in-house graphic designer to do it for them.

Thanks Jay!

I've told the client that a single DVD makes more sense than 6 CDs and I like their DVD option
