How is digital manufacturing different from traditional manufacturing?
You design and configure your product (case, disc, inserts, cover art, contents) with our publishing software. The software renders a precise 3-D replica of your product and lets you modify and review different possibilities. The software compiles your product's content, packaging, art-work into a single digital file and uploads it to our facility.
Then a seamless, automated system accepts orders; manufactures, prints, assembles, packages, wraps, and ships your product in minutes.
Digital manufacturing eliminates setup costs, coordination, human error and most labor costs. This yields a constant low production cost for all quantity levels -- so you can order smaller quantities with minimal upfront and warehousing costs.

What is bad about Kunaki?
Kunaki is not for everyone.
Kunaki operates more like a machine than a business and does not offer a personalized service. We don't engage in active marketing, sales, or public relations. We never offer discounts or special deals. We don't offer affiliate or partner programs. The Kunaki machine is operated and managed by software rather than a management team.
Our service is designed for 21st-century, intelligent, independent publishers who prefer to deal with a cold, efficient, and reliable machine that is available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
Because Kunaki is highly automated and focused on quality, low price, and fast production, we offer a minimal range of options.
