Silkscreen printing is generally regarded as the highest quality method of label printing. Replicated discs are printed using the silkscreen method, which can be set up for Spot (PMS) colors, Full-Color CMYK Process, or Offset. All of these methods are available on Disc Makers replicated discs, and all but Offset are available on Disc Makers silkscreened blank CD-R and DVD-R discs.
Thermal printing is a durable, professional label at a rock-bottom per-disc cost of only 4¢ per disc. While the resolution of thermal printing doesn’t offer the same level of detail as other methods, it is an excellent choice for text and line art on silver or white discs. Thermal printing also requires no dry time, and thermally printed images will not smear or peel off.
Inkjet printing is a great way to get high resolution and great color without investing a lot in equipment. This method of printing requires the use of inkjet-compatible blank media (available from Disc Makers). Because ink is being applied to a less absorbent surface than paper, inkjet-printed discs require time to dry, and can smear if exposed to excessive moisture. However, Disc Makers Hydroshield media greatly shortens drying time and lessens the impact of moisture on your finished discs.
Paper Labels are still a favorite for user-friendly application and low cost. Kits like those made by Neato offer the capability to design simple labels, print them on your home printer, and affix them squarely and securely to any CD-R or DVD-R media.

Got a problem? We carefully check every duplicator before it leaves our factory. If you suspect that there is something wrong with your system, don’t hesitate to call Disc Makers tech support at 1-888-800-4038. If something got damaged in shipping or is defective, we can swap your unit out for another (same model) during the first 30 days of ownership. After that, you’ll have to send it in for warranty service.
If you decide for whatever reason you just want to return the equipment (within the first 30 days of purchase) and not get a different product, there is a 15% restocking fee. We asses this fee because we can no longer sell the equipment as new, and will have to test, refurbish, and repackage it.
Return Material Authorizations (RMA): If you decide to return a unit, you must obtain an RMA number from our Customer Support Center. Please mark the RMA number clearly on the box(es) you are shipping back. The RMA number helps speed up the processing of your return and is standard in industries where products are returned/exchanged. Shipments received without an RMA# clearly marked on the package will be refused. Keep all of your original packaging (boxes/foam) in a safe place for the life of the unit. If you ever need to send a unit in for evaluation or repair, you will have the packaging available. We require you to ship equipment back in its original packaging. Failure to keep original packaging can result in extra costs (to buy new packaging) and a longer repair turnaround (you will have to wait for the new packaging to arrive before sending a unit in for repair). Any product returned to Disc Makers in non-original packaging will void the warranty.
You are responsible for all shipping charges: Exceptions are when Disc Makers is exchanging equipment that we determined to be problematic out of the box, products covered by Advanced Replacement Service and products that we return to the customer after Warranty Service. Note: Always use a traceable method to send back equipment and insure for full value.
Disc Makers cannot accept any opened software package for credit or refund.
After 30 days, you’re still protected. Warranty: Most Disc Makers products include a one-year warranty that covers most parts and labor. If you have a problem with your unit while it’s under warranty we will repair it at our cost (except for shipping), except in cases of use for which the product is not intended or abuse on your end. Disc Makers provides a depot warranty, which means that you need to ship your unit to us with an RMA number and we will repair or replace it at our discretion. Extended Warranty: Some products can be purchased with an optional extended warranty. This adds an additional year to the standard warranty, so your equipment has warranty coverage for a total or two years from date of purchase. If you decide that you want to add an extra year of warranty, please call your hardware product specialist at 1-800-237-6666.
Advanced Replacement Service (ARS): This optional yearly service plan is ideal for customers who cannot afford to be without their equipment while it is being serviced. Under this program Disc Makers will have you up and running within 2 business days. We’ll cover the expedited shipping both ways should a replacement unit be required. ARS must be purchased within the first 30 days of your unit purchase. For more information, contact your hardware product specialist at 1-800-237-6666.
Technical Support: Telephone, email, or live chat support is free for as long as your product is in warranty.
Out of warranty: Once your product is out of warranty, there will be a nominal fee for telephone, or live chat support of $15 per incident. An incident can include multiple contacts until the problem is resolved or there is an agreement that repair is needed. This fee is subject to change without notice. In case of an out of warranty repair, a Disc Makers tech support specialist will quote you an estimated fee for any repair work necessary prior to the repair being done.

Vista Statement/64 bit: Disc Makers strives to support the latest and most widely used operating systems. Our software engineers are working on adding Mac support to our Medley series by early 2008. Some pioneering clients have asked for our Medley series to work in a 64-bit operating environment or in the Vista operating environment. Our duplicators do not currently function well in either environment, nor are we able to offer client support. Support for Vista is in our engineering plan for 2008. Once the first service pack is available, we will begin coding for Vista.
For optimal throughput and productivity all automated duplicators need to be connected to a dedicated computer. If you want to acquire your own computer to manage these duplicators, you can find the necessary specifications in our catalog or online. Or, we offer a pre-installed, configured, tested, and warranted PC - specifically chosen to maximize your duplicator's throughput and print quality.
