What is a white disc and what is a silver disc?
Both provide the background colour for your disc design or the background colour can be entirely printed over, but the silver disc gives a gloss, metallic finish.
What is a thermal printed disc and what is a thermal re-transfer disc?
Thermal printing is the most economical method.
It is black print only on a shiny silver disc giving text or simple block graphics a crisp, indelible finish.
However it is unsuitable for greyscale shading or dithering and cannot print to the exact edge of the disc.
Thermal re-transfer printing is the superior finish.
Hi-resolution photos or images can be printed in full colour or full greyscale. Black is the cheaper option.
The finished disc has a stunning, glossy, water-resistant finish that can be printed right up to the edge of the disc.
What type of DVDs do you use?
We use Taiyo Yuden DVD-r blank discs, widely recognised by the industry as a very high quality disc. We print the discs, duplicate the content from your master disc and verify it is identical. Duplicated disc run the risk of not playing on some older DVD players, but most modern players will play DVD-r discs. The only way to guarantee your disc will play on all players is to replicate the disc.
What is meant by replication?
'Duplication' copies the content from a master disc onto a blank disc.
'Replication' is when a 'glass master' is made and the finished disc is 'stamped' out and silk screen printed.
The result is a shop-bought appearance but the process takes 2-3 weeks and is only really cost-effective for quantities of over 750. Please contact us for pricing.
How are the discs packaged?
As standard we insert each disc into a quality plastic wallet that is completely transparent with a seamed edge and an envelope flap. We can provide paper wallets, jewel cases, DVD cases or metal tins. Or, we can supply the discs unpackaged on a spindle.
What is included in the prices shown?
The price guide reflects our standard service: printing as specified, duplication from your 'master' disc and insertion into clear plastic wallets. The quantity breakpoints apply to identical printing. If your requirements vary, please contact us to discuss bespoke orders.
