When bringing a project to the final stages of
completion, the decision to replicate or duplicate
must be made and there are many factors that can
affect that decision.
Some of the factors influencing that decision
1. Quantity of the project.
2. Number of project masters.
3. How often will project code change.
In General, with the recent downturn in replication
prices, if a project is the same master and requires
more than 1000 pieces, it is probably most cost
effective to have the project replicated. The
added advantage of replication is it also includes
quality silk screening to each piece giving it
a store bought appearance. However, each project
is different and in some cases duplicating the
project is the better solution.
If you have a project that requires less than
1000 pieces or has many different masters, then
the most cost effective method is to have the
project duplicated. With duplication, you can
dupe as few of each master as needed. With the
recent advances in blank media surfaces and media
printers, it is now possible to print quality
graphics onto the surface of the blank media.
You can also have the blank media silk-screened prior to duplication.
If you have a project that will require code
changes after so many copies are released, then
duplication is they way to go because you can
control the exact quantity that you produce. With
replication, typical runs are a minimum of a 1000
