Here's some information you may find useful when ordering your CD or DVD project. If you need any assistance, then please contact us for help and advice, we are happy to help.

Turnaround Times:
Typical turnaround times for short run CD and DVD duplication orders is 2-3 days. For large volume CD and DVD replication orders, our standard turnaround time is 10-15 working days. We also offer a priority service for an additional cost. We can deliver duplication orders in as little as 24 hours and high volume replication orders in 7 working days. Please contact us on 0800 689 0025 for more information.

Artwork & Templates:
All our prices and turnaround times are based on receiving production ready PDF artwork. For full colour printing, artwork should be supplied as a 300dpi, CMYK, flattened PDF. Spot colour printing artwork should be supplied as a CMYK formated PDF with all text converted to outlines and specifying the pantone colour reference required to be printed.

The better the artwork you supply, the better quality printing you will receive. Remember to exclude all guides except crop marks from the final artwork and feel free to include a sample for postion if required. Once your artwork is complete, you can either email it to or send it on a CD along with your master to our address below. Once we receive your artwork, we will email you a PDF proof for your approval prior to production.

If you can't supply correctly formatted artwork, there's no need to panic. For a flat fee of £10 per item, we can usually generate production ready artwork from the following formats: Illustrator, Photoshop, PDF, EPS, JPEG, TIFF and even Microsoft Word, Powerpoint and Publisher. Alternatively, if your requirement is simply a logo and some basic text, you may find it useful for us to generate the artwork for a flat fee of £10 per item. Simply email the logo and wording you require and we'll prepare a proof for your approval. We also offer a creative design service for an additional charge.

Production Guides:
Kings Direct provides both disc duplication and replication services for audio, data and video formats. Duplication is used if your requirement is short run and a fast delivery is required. Replication usually takes 10-15 working days but is very cost effective for runs from 1000 to 500,000. We have included a number of buying guides to help you select the correct product for your specific requirement.
