GUEST,pavane CDRs for commercial recordings (42) RE: CDRs for commercial recordings 14 Jan 04


Mrs Pavane uses CD-R for disks to sell at gigs. The 1.80 each we pay includes case, on-disk printing and MCPS fees (Pop, not folk). We then have to add the inserts, which I print myself.

So far, we have bought 200 for 360, and sold about half in 7 months. At the current exchange rate, $2000 for 1000 would be about 1.20 each so I suppose we may consider it for the next one. Break-even point obviously depends on the price, but so does the MCPS fee, which complicates the calculations.

By the way, if you have any tracks on your CD which are subject to copyright, you SHOULD pay the MCPS fee (in the UK, that is).
Checking is not such a simple job though.
