vinyl record cds in card walletsMini 8cm Vinyl CDs

For small run orders of 50 items or more

These are completely unique mini 8cm CDs that we have had custom manufactured for us with the vinyl effect grooves on. A standard CD is 12cm across, so these discs are exactly two thirds the size of a standard CD. The capacity of the discs is 210MB, which is sufficient for about 24 minutes of full quality audio, so are perfect for most EPs.

The black vinyl-style mini CDs are available with a range of different packaging options including clear wallets, adhesive studs, jewel cases in 6 different colours or printed card 4 page wallets with your own artwork on.

These duplicated vinyl CDs have a solid black ridged area running around the outside of the disc on the printed side, looking and feeling exactly like grooves in a record and the data side is the standard silver. The full colour printed area runs from an inner diameter of 17mm out to an outer diameter of 42mm.

Please note that 8cm CDs should play in standard tray drives (there is an 80mm depression in the middle of the drive for these discs to sit in) and on the spindle-style drives used in laptops where you push the disc onto a central holder, however they will not work in slot-loading drives (like in car stereos) as only full size 12cm discs can be used in those drives.

The discs are inserted from near the inner spine of the wallets and there are thumbcuts added to help remove the discs.

Shrink wrapping the wallets or jewel cases

If you would like your mini vinyl CDs in a clear wrap for a glossy protective finish that is ideal for retail environments or presentation purposes then please add £0.08+VAT per disc for a shrink wrap.

Mini vinyl CD artwork template downloads (also suitable for editing in Photoshop)

The printed area on these vinyl-effect discs is 42mm in diameter with a 17mm diameter central hole. The artwork template that you download is only for the central printed area, the raised ridges and grooves with the vinyl effect will be automatically added outside of this area, so you don’t need to allow for them in your artwork:

Special offer on CD presentation frames

When placing a CD order with us, you can get 50% off our CD presentation frames when using the discs from your order and being ordered and delivered at the same time as your CDs. The frames are fully finished, ready to hang and include additional copies of your release and can even be provided with a full colour printed metal plaque with your artwork on to celebrate the CD release or as a memento for the band members. The frames can include both a copy of the disc and also the packaging and are available in black or white borders with black or white backgrounds.

Type of printing on the CDs

For quantities of fewer than 1000 discs we use a full colour high resolution laser print onto gloss or matt permanent labels that are then applied to the discs. The matt labels go very well with our recycled card packaging and have a similar slightly rough texture. For quantities of 1000 discs or more we can use a direct-to-disc full colour offset litho or silk screen print onto the discs although you can still go for labels if you prefer.

Custom printed guitar picksAdd some full colour printed guitar picks

When placing an order with us, why not add some custom printed guitar picks with your band logo on? The picks are available in different thicknesses for acoustic/electric and bass guitars and also lots of different base colours. We can then print full colour on-body artwork with partial white base layers and spot gloss layers if required. Ideal for not only playing with, but also for merch stands, added value online CD/cassette/vinyl sales or freebies for fans.

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.

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

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

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
