What is it?
Silkscreen printing uses a fine nylon mesh stretched tightly over a frame (the Screen). Images are created by blocking parts of the screen using photographic techniques (the films), and ink is then forced through the open areas of the screen, using a squeegee, onto the disc face. Each colour printed requires its own film and screen, so a four colour process job will need at least four films and four screens (one each for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, and possibly a white base).
Why Silkscreen Print?
- Replicated & Duplicated discs
Screen printing is available on recordable as well as pressed discs.
- Use the mirror surface
The shiny surface of the disc can be used as part of the disc face design.
- Pantone Colours
Individual 'spot' colours can be printed if you need an exact colour matched.
- Standard method on duplicated discs
All our replicated CDs are screen printed unless offset printing is chosen or recommended instead.
- Cost on high volumes
Best for high volumes as setup costs become more significant with lower numbers.
- Print only?
Discs can be supplied blank, but printed. Maybe you have your own duplicator or you burn 'one-offs' for distribution.
