I have a dummy question:
How much does a pack of xxx-media (500, 1000, etc.) cost in EU?
I would like to have a small comparison with the one here.
first of all some general rules:
* Media are usually done in batches of 1000 because the sleeves
are printed in batches of 1000. If we ordered smaller amounts,
we just used white sleeves.
* The prices also include some graphics work because the artwork
produced by the design-team does not meet the requirements of
the media company.
* The goldmaster (the first media to press the others from) is
very expensive (490 EUR). One more reason to make bigger
* The more you order the cheaper it gets. Not only for the
individual batches but also for the overall order. In F13 we
ordered 5000 media, this time we ordered only 3000 and the price
for 1000 pieces was therefore higher.
For F14 we paid:
1000 CDs: 470 EUR + 36 EUR Graphics + 120 EUR VAT = 626 EUR
1000 DVDs: 680 EUR + 36 EUR Graphics + 136 EUR VAT = 852 EUR
