Mastering and manufacturing CD's in the sinking economy.....

I'm almost finishing up my second self produced album. Like everyone else, I'm feeling the money crunch.
My plans to have my album mastered by Grundman or Schreyer or Sax here in LA and then manufacturing with Disc Makers has to be re-evaluated.
I'm now thinking that as much as I'd like to be present at the mastering session, FTP mastering is a reality I have to face.
Have any of you had good experiences with any of the FTP mastering services that are now available?
As for manufacturing, I will still need CD's to send out to stations.journalists etc for promo.
I would like to again make Digipaks.
Are there more economical alternatives to Disc Makers or Oasis?

thanks in advance.

all things considered, I find it hard to beat discmakers in a pound fo pound fight
