At DSW we fill a unique niche in the club promotion industry. There is no other
company in the country that offers the combination of services that we offer.
The basics are simple; we offer duplication and promotional distribution. The duplication
is fast, with custom 1200 DPI labeling in color or black and white on high quality
media. The distribution is customized to the clients needs including Billboard,
Radio and national Record Pool mailings. What makes us unique is that we combine
the two: Rapid turn around of high quality copies and the mailout coming from the
For example, to do a Billboard mailing, the normal procedure would be to send a
master and face art to a duplication company and wait 10 days to two weeks for the
copies to come back. While that was going on someone would have to contact a printing
facility to get inserts printed (if they were used) and when it all came back, if
the facility that did the duplication did not handle the inserts, the package would
have to assembled. Then they would be shipped to the company doing the Billboard
promotion where the promoter would package and mail them to their list. The total
process would take about 3 weeks at best.
If DSW were handling the same job, the client would send us the master, the CD face
art, front and back insert art. We would duplicate
the CDs in one day, have the inserts printed (48 hours), assemble the package, put
the CDs in high quality cardboard mailers with individually printed labels and have
them out the door in 3 days.
We can do small jobs: 100 CDs, black and white label, paper sleeve with Mylar window,
no insert, shipped to the client the same day.
Or large, complex, custom jobs like this one from last year...
Duplication of 5,000 promotional CDs with 5 different sets of mixes for:
- Billboard DJs
- Record Pools
- US Radio
- UK Club distribution
The job required five different custom printed inserts, with five different CD faces.
All art was spot printed in ultra-violet sensitive day-Glo ink.
DSW handled the distribution for the pools, the Billboard mailing, the radio mailing,
shipping to the UK as well as next day delivery, early AM for the clients personal
copies for the release party, all on-time, and on-budget.
