In addition to duplicating and replicating your CDs and DVDs, Total Media can help you complete your media packages by offering DVD and CD printing. Our discs are printed using state-of-the-art equipment and technologies so you can receive the highest quality products. Your printed disc surfaces will be photo realistic and feature an unscratchable, professional finish that will last a lifetime. And not only will you receive the highest quality DVD and CD printing available – but you’ll also receive it at the most competitive prices.
We offer a variety of DVD and CD printing methods that are each suited to the specifications of one’s media project. These methods include thermal printing, inkjet printing, everest printing, offset printing (also referred to as 5 color printing) and silk screen printing. Most media duplication projects (including flash drive duplication) will use either thermal, inkjet or everest printing. Media replication projects are best suited for the offset printing method, whereby the image in transferred (or “offset”) from a plate, to a rubber blanket, and then onto the surface of disc. For mini CD-Rs/ DVD-Rs and business card shaped CD-Rs we offer the additional option of applying a printed sticker label.
Our graphics department would love to help you create your own custom image to be printed on the surface of your discs, but if you already have specific artwork you would like to use for your DVD or CD printing, please make sure it fits the following on disc printing film requirements:

Total Media supports any and all file types and extensions when producing or printing replicated (typically orders over 1000) CD's/DVD's or printed materials. This includes Macintosh created data.
Printing Proofs may be faxed or e-mailed to you for approval if Total Media is processing your artwork, or if you request it. Printing proofs are final issuance from you to Total Media to begin the production of your order, and are final. In other words, if you make any changes after this point, you may have to also purchase the media we have already started printing.
Please use only CMYK, Grayscale, or "Spot-colors" (PMS - Pantone calibrated) color modes in your art.
Please embed all objects instead of linking them, but please include those objects as separate original files if we need to adjust anything here at Total Media.
