Subject: RE: MUDCAT CD FOUR' Petal to the Metal!
CD packages I see advertised in magazines run around $600 for 300, to $1,000 for 1000. This typically includes glass mastering (which is preferred, quality-wise), full-color 4-page inserts, 2 to 3 color screenprinting on the discs, jewel case assembly and shrinkwrap.

We could save substantial bucks by ordering bulk CDs and handling the assembly ourselves. I'm looking at an ad for 1,000 bulk CDs (glass master, 1-color screenprint) for $560.

Amos, how many were you thinking of for the initial run? The cost goes down as quantity goes up.
