Fantastic!! Just had some gorgeous black vinyl record style CD's done for my EP and the quality is spot on!! They look absolutely gorgeous, proper full colour centre, and record style wallet. They also do great presentation cases and a bargain on mailing envelopes for CD's too. So glad I found this gem of a company and will definitely be using them again!! :) @ortenseblueread more

Can't rate BandCDs highly enough, 5 stars doesn't even come close, from day 1 they help me with every issue I had with my CDs right through to the final product, the range of products is also mind blowing , from normal everyday CDs to mini vinyl CDs which is what I opted for for my own release, there is something for everyone here, can I personally thank everyone at BandCDs for their excellent service and friendly approach, The Plastic Fantastic Ep was The Skalps first release and we will 100% return to BandCDs for future releases. Thank you from all at Skalps Hq.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
