Advice on starting a cd duplication business

Postby Vp Premier on Thu Jun 10, 2004 3:37 pm

Hi everyone, I have been in the music business for a while now, mainly releasing independant cd's. I am in an area which is highly driven by cd sales. There is quite a demand and I know a lot of artists who routinely send their projects out to other states to be printed due to to the lack of affordable places in New York City for their needs. I plan to firstly have a customer base from these individuals and slowly work up to a high production facility. Currently I am looking into pricing options for duplicators, manual vs. automated, shrink wrappers, jewel cases and more of the requirements for the business.

Does anyone know anything about this field? Has anyone had any experience in it? I am looking for information concerning the legalities of the duplication business but cannot find anything. I am also trying to set up a checklist on all things I must cover to contact people who own current duplication businesses to speak with them. If anyone knows anything or has anything to say on this subject I'd love to hear. Thanks!

well you have to first get an idea if you need 1:1 duping, or go all out and do like a 1:9 auto duplicator with automated everything (loading, burning, ejecting, printing)

Hox,

Enough pontificating, already. Just give him a link to Ian's photo of your room.
