Custom Shaped CD Replication
picture & price updated accordingly
Don’t let your imagination stopped by the preconception shape of a circular CD. A CD-ROM can be of any shape as long as it is balanced geometrically. Sampling these following shapes may give you some inspiration. We are one of the pioneers in the shaped CD businesses and can definitely help you create your shaped CD with expertise.
Making a shaped CD can be as simple as 1-2-3. Do read the shaped CD section of our FAQ if you need more information.
- First send us your drafted artwork and expected amount of data capacity, say a heart shaped with 30MB.
- We will evaluate the feasibility and feedback with possible adjustment to your original design if necessary.
- Once final shape is approved by you we will start the production.

For all shaped CD replication orders your artwork will be professionally printed onto the CD surface by either silkscreen or offset printing -- the same quality as any retail CD’s you can find in music stores.
Warning: Shaped CD’s CANNOT be used in most slit-loading devices, such as some automobile CD players and some iMacs. But on most tray-loading CD devices there are two "wells"; one sized for a normal CD, and a smaller, deeper well for shaped CD’s to fit into. CD devices that feature an opening lid have no problem with shaped CD’s, as the disc can simply be placed onto the spindle as with a normal CD.
