Subject: [8-3-2] Net.vendors (duplication services and hardware)
(2007/08/08)

If you need a large number of discs made, perhaps with booklets and printed
labels, you can enlist the aid of a duplication house, or buy CD recording
and printing equipment to do it yourself.  Most of these also sell various
types of blank media in bulk.  (While it's outside the scope of the FAQ, it's
worth noting that nearly all of these companies handle DVD as well as CD.)

"Duplication" means copying to recordable media, "replication"
means pressing from a glass master.  Duplication usually has a faster
turnaround time and is the most economical for quantities under 1000 or
so, replication is less expensive for larger orders.
