Project Duplicating Setup: Where to go for this?

Thanks for all the feedback here, there and everywhere.

Now I'm on to something else.

Are there any forums out there that focus more on CD duplication?
Things like the automated duplicators, printable media choices, jewel case stuff, small job shrink wrap setups, graphics programs for printing on jewel case inserts, and all the rest pertaining to having a small run duplication cabability?

Or is there a particular forum on here to get this info from some of recording.org members?

Thanks again,

Woods

Those are topics worth talking about, for sure. Lots of us "roll our own" vs. farming it out to a third party. (I do my own up to about 500 copies, after that, it's not worth it....we use Discmakers for anything larger..)

I get labels, inks, paper and blanks from a separate vendor as well. It's cheaper in bulk, and beats the hell out of any Office Max or Staples marked up products.

We have a four-bay duplicator that's run by hand, but those automated units by Microboards and others look tempting. Prices are finally coming down on 'em, too. (EVeryone swears by Plextor for CDroms & Burners. My duper tower came with Liteon, which isn't bad, for the $$$).

We have 6x6 and 6x9 heat-shrink bags we use for CDs and DVD cases. It's a small investment to buy a sealer, heat gun and 1000-2000 bags for small orders. It always adds a nice touch to give clients their orders - even the short ones of 10, 25, 50 - in shrink wrap.

Drop me a note if you can't find any other info about this on google, etc. or here on the forums.
