Commitment to quality
We'll always lead the way when it comes to quality, because quality is ultimately a reflection of how much we value you as a customer. The thing is: we work with ad agencies, agents, and corporate accounts all the time, and these clients know the difference when it comes to quality production. We pass the scrutiny of demanding, knowledgeable clients every day, and we work hard to surpass expectations.
Image is everything. Including sales. In fact, in the music industry, when customers are not familiar with an artist, the leading factor for sales is the graphic design. The quality of printing for your images has that kind of power. We know this, and that's why we use only the highest quality processes for everything we print. We don't even own equipment that will print at lower standards.
What's the difference? Sit too close to the TV tonight, like three inches away. You'll notice that the image breaks down into blocks of colors. You no longer see your favorite weatherman, you see a beehive of color chunks. Now grab a photograph, one developed in a photo lab. Hold it three inches from your face and what do you see? You don't see a beehive and chunks of color, you see a high-resolution, detailed image where colors integrate, not separate. While other printing processes separate color, we integrate it.
To the naked eye, our printing is as good as photographic because we determined years ago to offer only the best. Our 400-line stochastic hybrid screening technology gives your project a visual difference you can see—it's more than double the industry printing standard, and it gives your images more than 4 times the detail. We also use premium papers and inks, and we give you a free aqueous coating that produces an amazing glossy depth that makes your images pop.
When it comes down to it, higher-resolution printing captures the eye, and higher quality paper just feels better in your hands. Not everyone can tell you technically why our pieces look and feel better, they just know they do, and that's a big deal for your clients, potential customers, fans, and even your wallet.
Highest-quality disc replication
Disc replication is an involved process, but it is precise, and we use the best equipment and process, which is similar to looking in a mirror. If you want to see the most accurate reflection of yourself, you look in the mirror. Conversely, if you want to see a poor quality reflection, you might stick your face on a copy machine (but we don’t recommend it!) and get a machine’s idea of what you look like. Our glass-mastering manufacturing process is like a mirror’s reflection—it’s accurate, and the details don’t get lost in translation.To insure the quality of your disc replication project, we routinely run a quality verification test on all master discs sent to NationWide (these are the master discs that you send us for reproduction). We check for technical problems with your master such as BLER, pit geometry, CIRC error correction, E22 and E32 errors, and several others. This all means that we'll make sure absolutely nothing's wrong with your master disc. We then assign the disc an overall quality score and check that it meets red book standards for quality reproduction. By doing this we insure that the quality of your recorded project is up to reproduction standards. We never charge you for this service, we just figure you want the best audio quality possible.
If you're like us, when it's time to make a significant purchase, you don't run straight for a salesperson, and you don't ask the advice of a cashier. You look for an expert, and you avoid an agenda. You want a professional—someone with working knowledge of the investment you're about to make. Years ago we realized that to be the best, we needed to give each client access to the professionals that were producing their order.When you call, we give you your own personal CSR (customer service representative)— a professional in the industry. Our CSRs are not call center workers, and they’re not salespeople disguised as customer service. Your CSR is your representative on the inside of our business—they're involved with every aspect of your project. Our CSRs have an average of 10 plus years of experience in the industry. They're simply that good, they know what they're doing, and they work for you. Your CSR is always available and willing to take your call. We don't have voicemail, and we don't filter calls. Your CSR will communicate with you from beginning to end. Feel free to contact a CSR any weekday between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm CST with questions. We invite you to try us out by giving us a call. We're confident you'll experience what sets us apart.
Compete with the big boys by having NationWide author your DVD. DVD authoring is the process that takes your raw content and creates a professional, finished piece. Not everyone needs authoring. For example if your DVD is already formated the way you want it and and it just needs to be duplicated then authoring is not for you. On the other hand if you have raw video files and want menus added to your DVD then NationWide Authoring has just what you are looking for. Find out more by visiting our DVD authoring page.
Let our experts edit your DVD to near perfection—making the colors of your disc content truer and the audio crisper. Want title menus, backgrounds, and chapters? No problem. That's what we do. So you can rest knowing your DVD will look great inside and out. Packages range from $90 to $695. Our three most popular packages are listed below with custom optional features. Have questions?

Up front pricing
When we give you a price, we mean it!
We've built our business by treating our customers right, and that includes up-front pricing that you see before you ever place an order. We don't charge you set-up fees, we don't have hidden costs, and you won't have to dig into your wallet for last-minute surprises. We wouldn't treat friends that way, so we won't treat you that way.
No extra charge for color on-disc printing
Color printing on your discs is a sign of professionalism that we feel makes your project a better product, and because life happens in color, we give you up to 3-color on-disc printing at no charge. We provide film and do the actual printing free of charge! We also offer full-color offset on-disc printing at a nominal surcharge. Offset offers the best quality available, especially for images that contain skin tones.
No extra charge for over runs
We don't believe in charging you more if we produce more items than you order. If we happen to, we'll just give you the extras. No over run charges means you don't have to pay for product that you don't order. All orders subject to 10% under run, but you'll only be charged for the actual quantities shipped up to your order amount. Prices do not include shipping. Ask your CSR for details.
Insured shipping - quick replacement for projects damaged while in-transit
We take as much pride in our work as you do with your project, and we don't consider our job done until it's in your hands. Because of this, we take extra care in packaging your order, and we insure it for the full amount. Less than one percent of orders are unfortunately damaged by the shipping company and become unusable. If that occurs, we don't believe in leaving you to battle the shipping company for reimbursement or waiting for you to get money back to us before we work on replacing the order.
If your project is damaged in shipment, you can relax knowing that we immediately begin the process to replace it. We will also work with the shipping company to make a claim for the loss. We'll need a little help from you, but we work through the process directly with the shipping company, so you don't have to. We ship your new project as soon as it is ready. No more money is required from you.
You won't find a catch in our pricing
We're glad to tell you everything up front, and we give you the best price for the products we offer. We always have and we always will.
