If you go to any office supply or discount store, there is a good chance that you will be able to find a CD or DVD labeling kit that's pretty easy to use. With any inkjet printer you can print onto pre-cut adhesive labels that you then peel off and stick to your disc. So why does anyone need DVD printers when it is so easy to print your own labels? Obviously, printing directly on your discs is much more professional in appearance. DVD printing is permanent but labels can lift and peel and get stuck in equipment. Even when labels are attached, they can throw the disc off balance, which also can cause damage to equipment. It should be noted that a DVD printer can label both CDs and DVDs. Printing on the discs itself is a safer and more attractive alternative to stick on labeling. Also, if you are interested in DVD duplicators, we offer a large supply to chose from.
At Summation Technology, we are often asked if disc printing is difficult to do. It really is not, and can be accomplished in a few easy steps. Setting up DVD printers, as well as, CD printers is very similar to setting up any page for printing. It is important to remember that special blank discs are required. There are two formats, thermal and inkjet, that you will commonly encounter. Thermal printing is used for primarily for monochrome or limited color printing on discs. This style of DVD printing leaves blank portions of the design silver. Inkjet printing uses a white disc and is the same process as used for paper printing. Just like any inkjet printer, quality is measured by the DPI rating, the higher being better. You just need to remember to purchase the right media for your printing equipment.
Summation Technology offers several pieces of disc printing equipment, one sure to fix your needs. We have automated units that allow you place a stack of blanks in the machine as well as units that produce a single disc at a time.
