CD BABY HELP CENTER

What is a "Pro CD-R"? What is a "Homemade CD-R"?

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.

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!
