MiniDisc duplication and productionMiniDisc duplication and production

Custom MiniDisc printing and recording for orders of just five or more

If you are after a short run of professionally produced MiniDiscs to go with your CD, vinyl or cassette tape release then we have just the service for you. We record onto brand new Sony 80 minute blank MiniDiscs (80 minutes is the same play length as a standard CD), so your CD contents can be directly moved across onto matching MiniDiscs.

The old-style MiniDisc album cases are no longer produced, however we do have new custom clear MiniDisc jewel cases into which we can insert full colour printed double-sided J-cards that also include the spine text and can also include additional fold-out printed panels.

Benefits of our MiniDisc duplication include:

  • High quality recording on brand new Sony MiniDiscs
  • Minimum orders start at just 5 MiniDiscs
  • Up to 80 minutes of audio playback, identical to a CD
  • Recorded in real time using ATRAC 4.5 compression
  • Direct to MiniDisc full colour on-body printing (no labels), with white and spot gloss inks available
  • MiniDiscs come in clear cases with full colour on-body printing on the top of the MiniDiscs and a double-sided full colour printed J-card in the case
  • Competitive pricing that includes UK delivery (international delivery available) and can offer quick turnaround times

Some examples of our work:

Sony blank MiniDiscs used as a base for our printing and productionBlank MiniDiscs used for production

We use brand new Sony 80 minute MDW80T MiniDiscs from their latest batch manufactured in 2015, the last MiniDiscs manufactured to date. The discs themselves are clear at the front and lightly frosted clear on the rear, with a little black text and logo on the front and ‘SONY’ debossed into the metal protective disc cover. We can print entirely over the front of the discs, leaving you with a blank white or black canvas (depending on our base layer colour) onto which your artwork can be printed, as you can see in our gallery above.

Artwork template downloads (also suitable for editing in Photoshop)

J-cards for MiniDisc jewel cases

If you require additional panels for your MiniDisc J-card inserts, then you can add up to two additional fold-out pages in the templates below. Each page is printed full colour on both sides, so for example two pages actually give four sides of additional artwork content and each additional double-sided page/panel costs an additional £0.12+VAT per MiniDisc (so a two additional fold-out panels would add £0.24+VAT per MiniDisc). In the artwork templates below, just fill in the additional panels of artwork that you require and leave any others blank that aren’t required (please always fill in +1 as the first extra panel, then +2 if required).

MiniDisc on-body printing artwork template download

We print on the tops of the MiniDiscs using a full colour on-body print in the standard label area as standard. We can also print using white and spot gloss inks if you wish, these should be supplied as separate files or layers in the Photoshop document using a solid black and clearly state if they should be printed as white or spot gloss. If you would like either a full coverage top print (including the metal sliding cover) or the rear or spine printed then please also complete those print areas in the downloadable Photoshop PDF template below.

Do you need a barcode?

Barcode generation service for CDs and cassettes

If you will be selling your discs or cassettes through a retail store then you will probably need to register a unique barcode for your release and apply it to the rear outer artwork of your product to make it possible for them to sell via their product barcode scanner.

In Europe we use the EAN 13 barcode system and in North America the UPC system is used. We can register an EAN 13 barcode for you and embed the barcode graphic within your disc or cassette packaging artwork for just £12+VAT. The only information that we will require from you will be the name of the band/artist and the title of the release, then just leave a suitable space in your artwork and we will register the barcode and add it to your artwork for you, all for just £12+VAT.

For further information about barcodes, please read our barcode FAQs.

On behalf of The Lack of Commitments we'd really like to thank Charlotte and the team for producing our live double album CD. We went for the vinyl CD look for our double album with a four page booklet. The quality, print and help was great. Thank you.read more

Excellent experience using these guys. I’m in a band called, Pulverise and we used Band CDs to print digi-packs of our debut album - Chaos Games. It’s the first time we’ve ever done anything like this and they supported us from the first contact to completion and delivered a beautiful product that we’re all proud of. Tom G is a legend! Thank you!read more

We printed our first release (Nordkväde) on tape here, the maltese cross folding cover looks amazing and we are really impressed by the all over print of the cassette. Most importantly the sound quality is great! We couldn't be happier with the result and great support they gave us when printing this product. Highly recommended!read more

Can't thank Charlotte and BandCDs for their help in turning my order for LIINES around so quickly and producing quality CDs. They answered my (many) questions by phone and email and nothing was too much bother. Can't wait to get these out to people who have ordered and to sell them at gigs. Thanks again.read more

I've had a 50 CD order for a classical music project. The audio quality was very high, and I loved the black vinyl CDs. The digipak printing was perfect, the staff was friendly and helpful, and overall it was a lovely experience. As a minor issue, I personally find the booklet pocket needlessly large, but that is a matter of taste. I would definitely recommend them. Many thanks for the professional services!read more

Band CDs did a run of cassettes for me in August and they are beautiful. The full on-body printing is a great option and the quality of the J-cards is excellent. Delivery was very fast and the price quoted was extremely competitive. I have since ordered from them again.read more

Band CDs are doing an awesome work with tape manufacturing, their professionalism and efficiency is amazing and the tapes I received are high quality products and they know how to handle problems such as delivery issues. I ordered a batch of 50 tapes for my label, which was lost by the delivery service and after a few months of being in contact with the delivery service trying to locate the parcel, they sent me another batch of 50 tapes that they re-produced. Couldn't recommend Band CDs enough.read more

Can't recommend these guys enough. I worked closely with a chap called Michael at BandCDs on a small batch of cassette tapes. He was an absolute legend! His meticulous attention to detail was unlike anything else I've experienced from any of the printers/manufacturers I've dealt with in the past at other companies. He ensured that certain elements of the design lined up and also bent over backwards to make sure the colour of the printed J Cards matched nicely with the colour of the plastic cassette. Top this off with an extremely quick turnaround, high quality products, great sounding audio and all at the lowest price I could find anywhere online and you can see why it's smiles all round in my house! Great job, thanks again all! :)read more
