DVD Duplication Projects
- Short-run projects (1 to 5,000 copies)
- Your choice of high quality 4-color thermal gloss coat or monochrome disc printing
- Run on industry-approved professional grade media
DVD Duplication uses a process where lasers “burn” pits and lands into a dye that is manufactured within the disc. The information on every copy is verified and the disc is then accepted or rejected. There are no bad copies. Disc burn speed has increased greatly over the years, so it is now possible to duplicate large quantities of DVDs in a very short time.
DVD Replication Projects
- Larger projects (500 units and up)
- Flexible deadlines (2 to 3 weeks)
- 5-color silk screen or 5-color offset disc printing
- 100% Playability is required
- Copyright protection is available
DVD Replication uses an injection-molded manufacturing process that makes use of a glass master and stamps the image into the extruded polymer. The disc is then printed and lacquered for protection.
DVD Duplication & DVD Replication Pricing
DVD Replication usually offers a lower per-unit cost (if you have a need for higher volumes and don’t need your project immediately). However, there are a number of other factors that can influence your choice, including labeling, packaging and fulfillment options. We also offer contract rates and annual discounts for clients with multiple duplication projects.

VIP provides a variety of labeling alternatives. For duplication, we offer high-quality 4-color thermal gloss coat printing for the same price as 1-color. It’s like putting a laminated photo right on your disc. The colors are truer and more vibrant, images are sharper, type is crisper and the waterproof surface is almost indestructible. What’s more, this digital process gives you consistent color (the discs we run for you this month will look exactly like the ones we ran for you three months ago.)
We also offer the newest technology in Ink Jet Printing. This is a more affordable process, and still has the vibrancy of Thermal Printing.
For replication we offer 5-color silk screen or 5-color off-set printing.

Single Disc Options
Top of the Line
DVD AMARAY CASES (click on photo for larger image)
Standard Black – often called ‘library cases’, these durable snap-shut units offer the perfect combination of protection, ease of use, custom outside graphics and inside space for print materials. The easy-release push button hub holds your DVD securely. Inside front-cover tabs keep your insert or booklet in place. The full clear vinyl outer sleeve highlights your 4-color wrap (front, back and spine label).
Standard White – the eye-catching white case gives added ‘pop’ to your print graphics.
Standard Clear – adds the option of two sided printing on your wrap. When the case is open you can provide additional information and/or highlight your DVD.
Slimline Black – has all the features of a standard case in a thinner space-saving size.
Preferred Retail Display
DVD JEWEL CASES (click on photo for larger image)
Jewel Case – the crystal clear case allows your artwork to sparkle and offers a number of options to suit your tastes and your budget. While not exactly fragile, a jewel case is more breakable than an Amaray case. The front lid has tabs to hold an insert printed on one side and folded, or an insert printed on two sides, and/or a booklet. The back of the case will hold an insert that provides display graphics for the back and one or both spines. ( Many larger retailers will not accept discs unless they have spine labels.)
DVD Trays – a standard jewel case requires a separate tray which must be inserted. Trays are embossed with the DVD emblem and come in black or clear, single or double size.
Assembled – a standard jewel box assembly includes your DVD with 1 to 5 color thermal printed face, DVD tray, front insert printed 1 to 5 colors ( 1 or 2 sided ), back insert printed 1 to 5 colors with spine label(s) and a booklet (optional).
Everyday Wear and Tear
DVD SLIMLINE POLYCASES (click on photo for larger image)
Clam Shell – a popular choice, this thin little case is flexible and light weight. It protects against scratches and dust while preserving shelf space. It clicks shut at the center ring and the see-through plastic allows identification without opening the case (also in blue tint).
Polypak – this thin little case with rounded edges and frosted corners highlights your DVD and provides the same benefits as the C-shell. It snaps shut on the edge opposite the hinge.
Polybox – this thin durable little see-through case has tabs in the front cover to hold a print insert. It snaps shut on all three open edges for added security.
Storage and Delivery
PAPER, TYVEK, VINYL, POLYPROPYLENE & PAPERBOARD OPTIONS
(click on photo for larger image)
Paper – this budget minded envelope with folding flap for protection and clear 4” window is great for tradeshows and promotional giveaways.
Tyvek – this extra smooth durable (will not tear) envelope was developed primarily to be a cost effective space saving alternative for disc storage.
Adhesive Backed Vinyl – this padded envelope is lined with non-woven white material to reduce scratching. The mottled texture prevents sticking and a flap holds the disc in place. A peel-off sheet on the back exposes the full case adhesive for easy storage in any album or 3-ring-binder with pages.
Double Adhesive Clear Poly – this light weight clear plastic envelope features a peel-off sheet on the back that exposes the full case adhesive. The re-sealable flap is held in place by a front adhesive patch with a removable protective strip. Consider this option when you want to attach your DVD to a book, manual or magazine.
Standard Paperboard Mailer – this flat disc-only mailer comes assembled and glued with an open top slot. The quick closing ‘peel and seal’ flap also has a tear strip for easy opening. Resistant to bending, folding and corner damage and designed to comply with postal regulations, this mailer offers an economical means of distribution.
Custom Packaging- available in several sizes, densities and finishes, a well-designed custom made package can put the final professional touch on your project. We can help you with all aspects from design through printing and assembly.
Double Amaray – securely holds and protects two DVDs. Two inner clips on spine hold print materials. Full clear vinyl outer sleeve highlights your 4-color wrap (front, back and spine label). Also available in 3, 4, 5 and 6 disc sizes.
Double Jewel Tray – the standard crystal clear retail-preferred box also accommodates black or clear double trays for two DVDs as well as front and back & spine inserts.
Double Clam Shell – the two sided center has hubs on each side to hold two DVDs. The two covers snap closed on the hubs. The faces of both discs are visible.
BINDERS & ALBUMS (click on photo for larger image)
Vinyl Binder – durable space saving design accommodates up to twelve DVDs. Double sided plastic sleeves help protect discs and metal 2-ring-binder holds them in place. The full clear vinyl outer sleeve highlights your 4-color wrap (front, back and spine label).
White Album – this impressive heavy-duty case snaps shut with a reassuring sound. It holds up to twenty-four DVDs in plastic sleeves clipped into a metal 2-ring-binder. With fewer discs, the extra space can be used for print materials. The full clear vinyl outer sleeve highlights your 4-color wrap (front, back and spine label).
