If you're manufacturing your own Vinyl, CD or DVD then you'll want to be sure you spend your money wisely. We can guide you through the process so you get the product you want without unexpected costs.

We understand there are a lot of choices when making a record and we will have to work hard to earn your trust. We use tried and tested suppliers to make sure that your project goes as smoothly and as quickly as possible, whilst maintaining the highest quality the industry can offer. After all, this is your baby and it needs to be looked after!

We also want to be as competitive as possible, so we’ve created our low price deals to help artists and labels achieve success easily. You'll get a proof before we print, we'll include a barcode if you want one, we'll shrink-wrap and deliver all within the price and if you are making vinyl, we'll include 5 test pressings for you to approve before we run the final product.

So get in touch to enquire about our great deals on Vinyl, CD, DVD, Blu-ray and Cassette, or if you have something specific you need a price for. Rest assured we can probably make whatever it is you are looking for.

1. Supplying Your Master

You can send us WAVS or a DDP file for your master by wetransfer, dropbox or a similar file transfer program. Don’t send MP3’s as they aren’t good enough quality.

Vinyl Masters

The standard bit rate for WAVS is 24 bit /44khz and your master should be as you want it, clearly marked A side and B side with tracks numbered and in order. If you are sending one wav for the A side and one for the B side, make sure you are happy with the gaps in between each song. Make sure you send us a separate sheet with the tracks clearly listed with timings and the side splits.

As a guide to getting the best sound from vinyl we recommend you adhere as closely as you can to the following timings.
At 33 rpm: 10” - 14 mins per side, 12” - 19 mins per side.
At 45 rpm: 7” - 5 mins per side, 10” - 10 mins per side,  12” – 15 mins per side.

CD Masters

CD masters should be provided as production ready DDP masters, but if you are unable to supply that, we can accept sequenced WAV files output as 16 bit with a sample rate of 44.1kHz. If you supply like this, make sure you give us as much information as possible so that we can create the master file correctly. The standard maximum time accepted for CDs is 79:59. If your audio is longer than that, contact us to see if we can accept your file.

DVD Masters

DVD masters should be supplied like a CD as a DDP file or alternatively as an ISO image. The common choices are DVD5, DVD9 and DVD10 and you need to choose the right capacity for your programme.

DVD 5 is a single layer disc that holds up to 4.7GB of data – around 120 – 130 minutes of video depending on compression.

DVD 9 is a dual layer, single sided disc that holds up to 8.5GB of data, around 240 minutes of video depending on compression.
A characteristic or side effect with a DVD-9 is a slight pause in playback that happens when the DVD player laser changes from one layer to the next. This is referred to as a “layer break.” It is desirable to try and disguise this layer break by placing it in an inconspicuous location if possible.

DVD 10 is a 2 sided DVD that holds up to 9.4GB of data, around 256 minutes of video depending on compression. The DVD must be removed from the player and turned over. In most cases this is used when putting an NTSC and PAL video on the same disc.

Disc Capacity (GB) Capacity (Mins) Sides Layers
DVD-5 4.7 133 1 1
DVD-9 8.5 240 1 2
DVD-10 9.4 266 2 1

2 - Supplying Your Artwork

Whatever you're making we can help you get this right first time.


The prices we offer assume you will supply a final, print ready PDF. To help you prepare this properly we have an artwork guide and we will supply you with templates for your chosen format. Your artwork needs to conform to the specifications laid out in the guide and on the template to avoid delays and potential extra charges.

Image Resolution

For non-vector artwork for paper parts, the absolute minimum resolution for printing is 300 dpi. For CD, DVD and Blu-ray labels, it’s 600 dpi. It’s also important to ensure that your ink coverage is no more than 320% and all fonts should be embedded or converted to outlines. Alternatively, fonts can be flattened as part of the image pixels, but for the sharpest print, vector text is advised. All printing is full colour CMYK, please do not supply RGB files.


Please make sure you email us to get the correct template for your release and also to get the artwork guide, to ensure you can supply your artwork correctly. We can supply these in InDesign and as PDFs that can be opened in Photoshop and Illustrator for you to forward to your designer.


Once we’ve checked your artwork, we’ll send you a PDF for approval. It’s important that you double check that everything is as you want it at that stage, as once you confirm approval by email, we’ll go to print.
