A Pro CD-R is a professionally duplicated (burned) disc with clean printing and retail-ready packaging.
A Homemade CD-R is one that is NOT burned by a professional manufacturer. It is one that you burn at home and package yourself.

We sell all formats to our CDBaby.com customers. Some wholesale distributors are more selective. All distributors accept professionally replicated CDs; many accept Pro CD-Rs; a few accept homemade CD-Rs.
Because this decision is up to each wholesale distributor and each individual customer, it is important to clearly and correctly identify the CD format for your album when signing up: CD, Homemade CD-R, or Pro CD-R. This helps make customers happy!
