The most important part of your product but
often overlooked or left to the last minute is the artwork.

as they say first impressions count.

Discus Group offer four types of printing
on the surface of the CD disc.
Digital disc printing
- inkjet print on special discs coated with an ink receptive
print surface. The cheapest most cost effective high quality
disc print possible for short runs with no minimum quantity.
Gives vibrant photographic quality print and leaves a matt finish
to the disc. Note as the ink is water soluble it may spoil if
subjected to wet conditions. Discs can be lacquered to give
some resistance to moisture but this is not a perfect solution.
Thermal Litho disc printing - Designed for Retail
grade photo quality print for short print runs of discs with
no minimum quantity. On a par with Offset Litho printing see
below, but more expensive than digital print, but used for products
headed for retail or where corporate brand is important.
Silk Screen disc printing - Requiring a day longer
on lead times than digital or thermal printing this is the most
common method of print onto discs for retail. The process involves
separating out the 4 colour channels of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow
and Black or spot colours onto films. These films are exposed
onto silk frames which are then used for printing the discs.
Generally available at 140 LPI (lines per inch). Silk screen
is best for solid colours, graphics and text.
Litho disc printing - by far the best print obtained is
Litho print for photographs or fine details on discs. Output
is 195 LPI (Lines per Inch). Suitable for larger print runs
and is unrivalled on quality
CD label printing
- We do not recommend the use of sticky labels for applying
designs to discs as they have been known to peel off the disc
when left in a machine which gets hot. This leaves the distributer
with a liability to repair the recipients machine
