Whenever professionals or companies need to have multiple CDs printed, there is always the question of whether they should do it themselves or if they should outsource this work instead. One large part of assessing the value of working with professionals is comparing the CD replication
prices UK companies charge with the costs of tackling this project on your own. It is important to note, however, that professional services can be far more comprehensive than you might initially expect.
To accurately estimate your own charges when replicating your own discs, you will have to account for the costs of all of the raw materials. These will include the actual discs, the equipment that you will require in order to mass produce these discs and any necessary supplies for labeling. You will also need high-quality cases or sleeves and printing capabilities for labeling both the discs and the cases or sleeves.
If you already own a CD burner, you probably think that you can assign this task to someone cheaply and they can take care of it in-house. For many companies, this means diverting manpower away from other important areas of their operations. Otherwise, you have the choice of working with a short-term staffing agency or paying a contractor. Either way, the costs of this project can quickly mount even as quality control goes down and your supply chain becomes evermore complex.
You also have to think about the amount of wear and tear that your own burner and computer systems will assume when you subject them to this work. This is not the same as burning just one or two discs. This equipment will be in near constant demand throughout the duration of your project. In fact, if you have a very large number of discs that must be produced, it will also be at risk of overheating. The additional wear and tear sustained during these efforts could require you to replace these technologies much sooner than you would otherwise.
Professional service providers maintain first-rate burning equipment that is built to withstand this additional wear and tear. In fact, they use technologies that were designed for the express purpose of mass producing discs. They can crank out the products that you need a lot faster and with less losses on their end, if any at all.
These companies are also capable of both supplying all of the needed materials for your project and completing all of the labeling and covering tasks. They have a variety of high-quality plastic cases that their clients can choose from. They also have high-quality card stock or paper sleeves that you can use instead, and at a much lesser cost.
This same entity can label both your discs and your covers. This is vital for making an impressive and truly seamless presentation when distributing the finished work. They will have the ability to add high-quality and full-color graphics as well, depending upon your project goals and your spending abilities.
When considering all of these things, the costs of outsourcing this job to seasoned professionals is always worthwhile. You will be able to keep your supply chain simple and low-cost. You will also have the ability to get storage services, in-house mailing services, and end to end quality control as well as many other forms of support for ensuring that all of your objectives are met.
