After investing the time, effort and resources into the content development of your product, it’s important for your CDs and DVDs to have the proper exterior look. There are several options available when it comes to printing the surface artwork of your product.
For quick-turn Recordable CDs and DVDs, we can print directly on the surface of the media using the thermal transfer print process, or we can print directly on the surface of the media using the photo realistic die-sub print process or we can print color laser labels and affix to the surface of the media.
For recordable CDs and DVDs we can also pre-screenprint media prior to duplication. Unlike the other print options, this requires 5-7 days in advance of receipt of your master content. Printing directly on the surface of the media is the preferred process and this can be done quickly and with an excellent professional look.
For replicated CD-ROMs, the surface artwork can be screenprinted directly on the surface of the CD-ROM. We can screenprint using up to 6 PMS colors or print in four color process.
For replicated DVDs, the surface artwork can be screenprinted directly on the surface of the CD-ROM or it can be printed using an offset print method. The screenprint method can be done using up to 6 PMS colors and works best with solid PMS colors. For gradients and four color process surface artwork, offset printing looks best.
