Frequently Asked Questions about Custom Printed CDs and Custom Printed DVDs

  1. Do I need a special template?

  2. Why can't I see your prices?

  3. What file formats do you accept?

  4. Do you sell custom packaging?

  5. What if I want to print my own discs?

Do I need a special template?

No. Just make sure your artwork is 5 in. x 5 in. and has a 300 dpi resolution. If you need help visualizing your disc and where the nonprintable areas are, you can download our disc label template as a .psd file or as a .tif file.  (Our layout is actually 4.723 inches square. Don't worry, it will work.) You should hide the layer with the disc dimensions before you send us your artwork.

Why can't I see your prices?

We want to make sure you get exactly what you want. Sometimes that involves several phone calls back and forth before a quote can be prepared. Sometimes it means we have to present options that aren't available on our Web site or options that have never even been thought of before.

Sure, online forms and instant quotes are convenient, but they require you to think inside of boxes. We've discovered a lot of creative people have trouble thinking inside of boxes.

By doing quotes this way, we also get to know our customers and their businesses. Over the years, we're able to see our customers' businesses grow. We like that.

What file formats do you accept?

We accept .tif, .jpg, .eps and .psd files. The most important aspect, however, is ensuring your file has a high resolution -- at least 300 dpi and the artwork must be 5" x 5".

Do you sell custom packaging?

We have full-color, custom printed cardboard sleeves and other custom packaging options. Call us for more information.

What if I want to print my own discs?

First you should know that, in disc publishing, the printing process is the area that will bottleneck your operations. Even industrial grade printers are slower than your standard duplicator tower. If you want to be truly efficient, having your discs preprinted is the fast, easy and affordable way to go.

Having said that, we're an authorized reseller for Rimage, Primera, Microboards, Epson and ILY. We actually use the machines we sell, so there's no one better prepared to give you the pros and cons of each unit. Give us a call at 1-888-277-6364 and we'll be happy to talk about your printer/publisher needs.
