CD printCD printing
can be carried out in a variety of ways, depending on your requirements. We offer all industry-standard CD print processes, from inkjet and thermal, suitable for very fast turnaround CD-R orders, to silkscreen and offset litho printing which are usually used for larger-scale replicated CD-Rom orders, but which can also be used for CD-R orders where necessary. Here is a basic outline of the CD print processes offered:

Inkjet CD print:
Print to white or silver-surface CD-R in high resolution full colour CMYK. Usually restricted to demo runs as the print area is not smudge-proof if it comes into contact with moisture. Suitable for all types of artwork but shows better results with lighter colours.


Thermal CD print (mono):
Print to white or silver-surface CD-R in black, blue or red. A very quick and basic print method best suited to text, small logos and line-art only. Can look very effective within these restrictions (similar to a silkscreen print). Best avoid: tints and gradients. Smudge-proof.

Full colour thermal CD printerThermal CD print (full colour):
Print to white or silver-surface CD-R in high resolution full colour CMYK and leaves a glossy surface as standard. Suitable for all types of artwork. Smudge proof.

Silkscreen CD print:
Print to white or silver-surface CD-R or CD-Rom in Pantone spot colours producing very bright, solid results. Suitable for text, logos and line-art only, although photos can be used to produce a special 'lattice' effect from the silkscreen dots. Best avoid: tints, gradients and CMYK artwork. Smudge proof.

Offset litho CD printer Offset litho CD print:
Print to white or silver-surface CD-R or CD-Rom in high resolution full colour CMYK and has a smooth satin finish as standard although will take a gloss varnish if required. Suitable for all types of artwork, although large areas of spot colours work better with silkscreen. Smudge proof.
