Replicat moves to 100% local Australian print and disc pressing

Tuesday 18 May 2021 

Hi there

If you've arrived at this page, then it's likely you've clicked a link to one of our old off peak (imported) discount print and/or pressing products.

In May 2021, we've made the tough decision to move the entire CD DVD and vinyl jacket range to a more expensive but much faster and more reliable local Melbourne production. We will no longer be importing these items, and our discount off peak service has now come to a close.

While prices have increased, we've remained competitive on as many product lines and quantity breaks as we could, even though the cost of forme cut, fold / glue and CD DVD replication is considerably higher in Australia. We've also been able to add some great new options, such as 100% recycled white Ecostar and 100% recycled natural brown Botany card stocks to the CD DVD wallet range.

It's also important to note when comparing prices that Replicat provides glass mastered CD and DVD from only 200 units. As the world's CD players get older, it is essential to provide pressed discs rather than duplicated CD-R or DVD-R when providing discs for commercial use - including retail, online and gig merch stand sales.

We thank all clients for their understanding, and for the incredible and supportive response we've had from clients so far. Please feel free to contact me directly on 03 8456 7515 to discuss any impact or options. Wherever possible, we'll look to support clients who are transitioning from existing packs and artwork to the new range.

Kind Regards - Scott Wilson, Owner, Replicat Pty Ltd
