On-disc printing options

Full-color on-disc printing

Quantities of 299 and below

Full-color on-disc printing is an economical digital printing process designed to meet the basic requirements of full-color disc printing. Quick and efficient, this printing style is our most cost effective solution for your budget. Our UV printing process will give your discs a textured look similar to a matte finish. Designs can have a granular, pixilated finish.


Important Design Notes

  • White discs are used for the printing process. We do not print on to the silver surface of the disc.
  • Avoid using large areas of solid color. Solid backgrounds are not recommended.
  • Fine or soft details within an image may be lost due to the nature of the printing style.
  • Avoid drop shadows and transparency effects. These elements may not print properly.
  • Small or thin text below a size of 10pt should be avoided, as this can become illegible when printed.
  • Coverage: 2 mm silver ring around the outside edge.

Important Design Notes

  • Allow elements of your design to remain unprinted to let the silver of the disc show through.
  • Great for full-color photos and/or large areas of solid color.
  • We can usually accommodate any specific PMS color requested.
  • Disc surface changes slightly near the clear, center of the disc, and color may fade as a result.
