CD & DVD Duplication Service Discontinued


The results of the annual AFD cost and recovery analysis show that with Cal Poly’s escalating maintenance and support cost it is now cheaper to duplicate CDs/DVDs at commercial vendors in San Luis Obispo. In an effort to save the colleges and departments money, ITS Operations has discontinued duplication of CDs/DVDs. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Below is a list of know vendors in San Luis Obispo that provide duplication services. These are not the only vendors, nor a recommendation of these vendors, but a representation of vendors available.

Thank you.
