Some frequently asked questions & answers
What is a Spec?
Short for specification.
This tells us everything we need to know to quote you accurately. Qty, Media, Packaging (dimensions, materials, printing), Assembly, Proofing, Shipping and very importantly, Budget.
Frequently your graphic designer will provide you with the packaging portion of your spec.
Why do you want to know Budget?
We are happy to help you get started, and part of that process can be giving you a rough estimate so we (= you and us) know if the project is a good fit. If your price range doesn’t fit the product, we’ll try to make suggestions for something that will or let you know that we’re not a good fit.
What’s the Minimum Quantity?
CD/DVD/USB. 300/500 Qty
300 is the min if you are ordering media & packaging, otherwise it is 500 qty. Making 300 is almost the same cost as 500, just fyi.
Can I order less?
Yes, but the price doesn’t go down.
BluRay 500/1000 Qty
Same cost to make 500 as 1000. Licensing fees requirement payment for 1000 units.
LCD Video Screens
With these you actually can order 100 qty…it’s because they are expensive. Super cool. Expensive though. Sorry. But cool as h*eck.
