We specialise in high quality, high impact CD and DVD Printing. We take care over every order to ensure the best quality print, colour matching and finish. Try a free sample print of your artwork to see!
We offer short runs from only 50 units to 2,000 (higher runs are available by request).
We started our printing service in 2004 to produce promo CDs for our own record label due to the lack of quality printers providing short duplication runs. We have grown rapidly ever since serving many thousands of bands, record labels, software companies, schools and many more.
Based in Portishead, Bristol we send out orders all over the UK, Europe and beyond.
Customer Service Committment
Unlike some other companies who offer short runs as an add-on to their larger runs we have built our service from the ground up, specifically for short run , on demand printing.
We have invested in high end colour matching software and photo-spectromoters for our disc and paper printers. Normally used on expensive printing presses producing massive volumes this can now be used to get accurate and repeatable colour results for short runs. Some of the benefits are:
1) We can produce prints that match the appearance on screen without endless trial and error. So we can get to work on your job immediately without delays or setup fees.
2) If we re-print your job at a later date it should look the same. If we’ve made changes to our printers or replaced key components we will have re-calibrated to ensure consistent results. You’ll often find us in the early hours of the morning, photospectrometer in hand, calibrating the printers by carefully scanning in hundreds of small printed colour squares!
3) We can print on multiple machines simultaneously without the output varying dramatically from one machine to another. Quicker and better print quality.
4) We can produce decent black and dark colours direct to disc because we have effectively calibrated the printers. It means we can print the highest density of colour without causing the ink to bleed or run. Compare our results with other discs you may have had in the past to see the immediate benefit.
We haven’t yet come across any of our competitors using this high end software – which is why our customers keep coming back and we win new customers on a regular basis.
Better Materials, Better Packaging
We have top quality booklet making equipment which allows us to use the thicker 170gsm paper even for 16-page booklets. They look and feel expensive – giving your customers a great impression about your CD. Our competitors often use 120gsm or lower weights – for their own convenience as it is cheaper and easier to make them.
The discs we use are tried and trusted, having given excellent print and burning results over many years. When we find good quality CD and DVD batches we stock up with as many as we can store, to ensure consistently good results.
Top Quality Cases
We avoid sourcing pallets of cheap CD cases from China – it is possible to get them as cheap as 7p per case. We buy small quantities and pay 20p per case or more for the best quality virgin plastic. They snap together nicely and are more resistant to damage in the post. We never use the cheap, flimsy cases that are commonly sold. It does mean we charge a little extra to cover these costs but we would not use these for our own CDs and we wouldn’t expect you to either! We know you want your product to be professional and give the best impression to customers or reviewers.
When we send your parcel out we always “double box” everything to minimise breakages but we always include extra cases, CD trays, discs and paper printed parts to allow for any breakages in transit or misprints we didn’t spot. This means you can safely throw away any breakages without being short. Our competitors often have a replacement guarantee but it’s no good if you need 100 CDs for a particular deadline and then have to wait for replacement cases to arrive late. In the unlikely event that you do need extras we will of course hurry them to you on a next day delivery.
the boxes arrived this morning, and I have to say that the complete package is simply stunning. Incredibly professional, and there is absolutely no doubt at all that we will be using you again in the near future.
Superb service, and better than we ever hoped for. Many, many thanks.
I would like to say your service is EXCELLENT.
Your correspondence, efficiency, quality of work is second to none.
I will definitely promote your company and I will use your service again.
CDs have all turned up, as requested, on time and looking how they should look.
A really fantastic service for which many thanks.
