Offset Litho Print

Full colour Offset is a fantastic full colour print for CD/DVD images. The printing process allows us to create highly detailed quality CD/DVD images for you.

Screen Print

Screen-printing is the most effective way of disc printing CD or DVD if you have an image that uses Bold or Pantone colour. If your company are continuously changing software, Literature, catalogues or content then this is the disc printing process for you.

The Screen-printing process consists of a polyester mesh stretched over a screen frame at a predetermined tension. The mesh is stretched at an angle of 7 degrees to the mesh weave. The screen then goes through a cleaning process after which a photo stencil film, (Capillex), is affixed to the screen mesh. The capillex gives a controlled stencil profile over a wide mesh range & gives superb dot reproduction when on press. A stencil or film is then placed onto the screen & placed into an UV light based exposure unit. The capillex reacts to the UV light & an image is produced onto the screen mesh. After the mesh has been emulsion & re exposed then the screen is ready for press.
