Recommend me a CD replicator - UK

My band is planning to make a CD. Can anyone please recommend me a good place to get them replicated? We're after replication (not duplicated CD-Rs), a good quality product and good quality service. And preferably cheap as chips!

Any suggestions?

"We're after replication (not duplicated CD-Rs)"
So you want CD pressed from a glass master. I hope you want lots, because the setup costs mean it only gets economical over about 300-500 units.

If I needed CDs pressed the first two options I'd try would be

(1) SRT in Huntingdon, mainly because they are fairly local to me, but I've heard recommendations. I suggested Colin Cater use them for his "Penny For The Ploughboys" CD and he hasn't complained...

(2) I'd ask Doug Bailey at Wild Goose. He doesn't do pressing himself, he usually gets them done by a firm in Austria but he gets a good price because he puts so much work their way. He has offered to do this for me as we've recorded 5 albums on his label and know him well; I don't know if he'd do it as a commercial service but he does all sort of projects on and off label and it's always worth a try.

Both the above can handle any of the other parts of the processing
too: recording, mastering, packaging, putting artwork together in a suitable format for printing etc.

Of course anybody you ask will tell you they give you best quality at cheapest prices....

I've been very happy with the service from Sounds Good. Don't know how their prices compare to what else is available, but 1000CDs in cardpak for under £500 seems a pretty good deal.
