Kudos Digital is now distributing to Amazon’s Disc On Demand service which allows retailers to manufacture products when they receive an order. You supply the parts (audio, metadata images), a customer orders your CD, the retailer makes one and sends it to them. No need to worry about manufacturing costs or over-production.
The service is currently only available in the US but is planned to extend to other territories in the future.
“Disc on Demand is not only making out-of-print albums available once again, but it’s also enabling digital-only titles and international titles that haven’t been released in the U.S. to be made available on CD. Music lovers and artists can now share and discover new music more easily on Amazon.” – Peter Faricy, vice president of music and movies at Amazon.com.
