It has come to our attention that many folks believe their CD's are impervious to most conditions (except scratching) and will last a lifetime of playing. This is not the case.
Although Velvet Hammer Productions uses only high quality watershield discs in CD and DVD production, it is a known fact that CD's have become less and less expensive to buy. The problem is that they are being produced in as cheap a manner as possible. Less and less backing is being applied to the disc, and as a result, the life expectancy of a normal CD or DVD is just around 3 years, even if it sits on a shelf. Higher quality CD's like the ones used by Velvet Hammer Productions are rated for 5 years or more.
It's time to start putting your best music on archival discs. Archival discs are backed with gold, and have extra thick coatings that ensure a 100 year lifespan with normal, careful use. Most are also equipped with scratch guard technology to keep scratches at a minimum.
Ask Velvet Hammer Productions about Archival Gold Discs for your projects.
