What is the difference between offset, silkscreen and digital print for the CD/DVD?

  1. Offset print: That is the most common printing method. We suggest offset for printing labels with pictures, photos, gradations artworks without pantones. Made with large-scale industrial machines is recommended for the quantities over 500.
  2. Silkscreen: The silkscreen print gives a good colour saturation, can provide the highest quality colour matching and the deep black colour. This printing technique is recommended for the artworks that include vector text and images, or require using pantones.
  3. Digital print: made using special uv paint or toners, additionally protected with a lacquer layer or high temperature. Digital label print is of high quality and the colours and details are very well transferred. Thanks to the efficiency of the printing machine we can offer attractive prices while assure the best quality, especially for small quantities( below 500 pcs.)
