Your products are an essential entity of your marketing mix so it is important that your discs look really stylish.
At Direct Corporate Design we specialise in printing on CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs, so our turnaround time is…quick!
We use a digital method to print your artwork in full-colour direct to disc. If your artwork is only 1-2 colours then we use a screen printer to print your artwork straight onto the disc.
Very often our clients tend to let us make the decision for them on which print technique will be best for their needs after we’ve had a look at their artwork.
As part of the service, our expert team will inspect your files to ensure optimal print results. A proof of the artwork will always be sent for your approval, and once approved by you, we will go ahead and start the printing process.
Our full colour on-disc printing is a digital printing process that is economical. Compared to screen printing, digital printing uses a very short setup process in order to turnover discs rapidly. Efficient & quick, digital printing provides a cost effective solution for budgets. Due to the nature of this printing style, designs are printed 1-5 colour with white base and a varnish, ready for duplication.
The majority of screen prints call for designs with solid colours.
A porous screen is stretched over an aluminium frame where areas of the screen are blocked off, and indicate where the ink transfers through. The screen is placed on top of the disc where a rubber blade pushes the ink through the screen and prints onto the disc. This process has to be repeated all over if there are multiple colours on the same disc.
