How do you go about making cut-out CDs? : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

Lately, I see more and more cds cut into different shapes that still work just fine in a regular cd-rom drive. I find it a very interesting way of presenting information and wanted to know: -How exactly is this done? Does one have to go through a vendor and order large quantities? -Is there some kind of cutting piece of machinery one can buy? If so, where and is it way out of price range? -Can this be done on in limited quantities relatively inexpensively? In a lot of 10 to 50 or so.

You go through a specific company who will do it for you. They do not do it in small lots since the CD manufacturing process is very different. It is expensive and the technology is limited to one or two firms. Good lukc getting these.

Interesting - even in Australia downunder people/companies have business cards in the same rectangular shape that holds about 12M of data that can be played in the ordinary cd drive - gives access to the web and full pricing lists of company products etc etc. My video media supplier uses one and orders can be made over the net. Usually silk printed card details on the reverse side to the data.

I've seen the business cards you mentioned, and have played the multimedia presentation on the CD. It's amazing what they do with a plain CD. will make the CD anyway you want. they have some very nice looking samples online.

Thank you! This is precisely what I was trying to find. Because of my limited experience in the arena, I didn't know where to even begin looking. Thanks for setting me on the right track!
