For smaller runs up to 500 or larger if quick turnaround is an issue we take high quality CDr and DVDrs and burn the tracks on to them individually. The CDr are silver so it is almost identical to a pressed CD. Playable on all but the very oldest CD players. The disk is then printed with an ink jet process which uses Ultraviolet drying inks that won’t wipe off. Or we can use our ‘Precision Laminate’ system where the image is printed onto an acrylic substrate before bonding to the surface of the disk.
All discs are error checked as they are copied followed by a visual inspection prior to packing.
Our Laser printed paper parts then packed into cases and over-wrapped to keep them fresh.
