Artwork File Formats:
NOTE: Art Resolution should be 300 DPI or higher. Also, you must provide Color call outs (Color Number) ART: All "Fonts" should be converted to outlines (Curves). Do not include files not to be used, no linked files and make sure for OFFSET Printing that the color black is a combination of CMYK and not 100 black.
For the best results, please use PMS colors (Pantone) and specify the color number = PMS. The number of colors should always be designated! (White flood is considered 1 color.) The maximum number of colors that can be printed is 5 colors. All artwork must be either PMS or all CMYK. Line widths must be 1pt minimum for process CMYK, 0.5 pt Minimum for PMS.
Silk-Screen printing is the process of transferring ink through a fine mesh screen onto a CD or DVD. CDs are printed in a similar fashion, but the equipment is more automated and the process is faster. This process utilizes a 133 to 150 line screen (the number of lines or dots per inch on a halftone screen), providing excellent quality for CMYK four-color process and PMS colors.
We also offer the latest in Offset printing for a better four-color process. Offset printing onto CDs, DVDs, CDRs and DVDRs is similar to Offset printing of a high quality magazine: it's the process of using an intermediate blanket cylinder to transfer an image from the image carrier to the CD/DVD. This process utilizes 175 to 200 line screen.
You wouldn't want to go back to the picture quality your computer had a few years ago, would you? Then why have your CD or DVD, your product, not look its absolute best? Our Process for Offset printing allows us to produce and print much more realistic and dramatic images on your CD/DVD than ever before.
Do not compress files, Please indicate total playing time, and total MB of your CD, or DVD. Include a color proof of your artwork and specify the number of colors to be used on the CD.
