Why Choose Copysmith for CD Duplication?

You have your CD ready for duplication so you now find someone who can copy the disc, print on the surface, produce the paper print and package in the case for you. There seem to be a number of companies out there who can do this so why choose Copysmith?

Perhaps a little history may help you decide why Copysmith is the best choice for you.

Summer 1984, school was out and the entity that would become CopysmithCD duplication, DVD duplication, Blu-ray duplication, music duplication, film duplication, video duplication, was taken to a room in St Albans, UK instead of lazing around in the sun. Here were huge machines named autoloaders. Copysmith was told to keep them stacked from the top and to empty them at the bottom. These autoloaders were copying 8″ floppy disks. Copysmith learned there were other sizes of disks as well.

http://copysmith.ie/cd-dvd-copying-services/floppy-disk-duplication/Jumping forward a few years with school out of the way Copysmith embarked upon a copying career. 8″ disks were now obsolete but 5.25″ and 3.5″ disks were very much where the world was at.

By the early 1990’s CDs were beginning to take hold and a move to Ireland in 1998 to work for an American Corporate who manufactured packaging for CDs and DVDs proved to be a wise move. Clients included Microsoft, Sony DADC, Technicolor, Avarto, MPO plus many other replicators.

A Switch to the inventing company of this particular packaging followed later with interim periods selling duplication equipment, services and packaging. Finally in 2015 Copysmith took a new form. A solo project. With over 30 years experience of copying, packaging, machine sales, service sales all based in the media duplication industry Copysmith was no longer a merely a Handle. It was now an organisation.

As with all new ventures things took time to take off. With knowledge gained over the CD duplication, DVD duplication, Blu-ray duplication, music duplication, film duplication, video duplication, years on online marketing and a range of other service including cine film and video conversions, audio tape and cassette conversion plus photo and slide scanning the Copysmith services portfolio grew and grew. With CD duplication, DVD duplication, Blu-ray duplication, music duplication, film duplication, video duplication, vinyl records making a come back Copysmith decided not only to provide a service for manufacture of 100 units up but also a low volume service where one off vinyl records could be ordered for presents, presentations, promotion etc.

The first months saw a steady increase in sales and gave a basis for further growth during 2016 and 2017. This allowed further investment in our equipment, software and processes.

To service our duplication requirements we now have 3 tower units that between them provide us with18 duplication drives which allows for outputs of upto 400 CDs per hour. All of these drives produce CD and DVD whilst 3 of these drives will also produce Blu-ray.

CD duplication, DVD duplication, Blu-ray duplication, music duplication, film duplication, video duplication, Our on disc printing is catered for by Epson Disc Publishers which also give a further copying drive option if required.

The use of file uploads has proved invaluable to our clients. This is simple time saving and allows mp3, mp4 or other such files to be delivered to us in a matter of minutes. Our upload page is publicly available for all our clients to upload source material and artwork.
