I know someone that will make them @ 4$USD per up to 100, then the rates go down, glossy custom labels, vinyl sleeve and everything. Email me and I can pass along the contact info... superbean2000@email.com

Man, that sound like a good deal.

BTW, for future reference, how many MBs do the little CD cards hold?

Can you burn the info onto the CD card like a normal CD in a burner?

Thanks

I heared that there are many cd-romplayers that can't play not round shaped cd's!
Keep this in mind before you spend a lot of money buying not round shaped cd's.

I haven't encountered any problems with them, and I have burned many of them without incident in normal burners. They hold 50 MB.

There's also a rather nice little bugg in them, than some card shapes spin so fast that the central frugal force of them spinning causes them to lift of the drive plate and fly into the back of the drive ..

nice !!

Here is the best place that I have found, costwise & features, if you are looking to have them minted out-of-house.

If you want to buy a bunch of blank ones and some labels, try this:

I prefer the smaller circular ones, that hold approx. 180MB, they look just as appealing and work better. The business card ones work in most CD-ROM drives, but make an awful noise when they spin.

Any slot-loading CD drive (read - all of the popular new IMacs) will not accept these die-cut CDs.

If you do choose to go with them, Discmakers has some of the best turnaround, prices, and services I have seen (they will even cut shapes to your specs).

We do digital cards to order - everything from content to production: Flash, Director, video work, etc. How many disks are you looking to produce, and how much of the content are you going to take care of? Prices will depend on how much work you want us to do. :)

Send details to info@focustribe.com for a price quote.
