CDs and DVDs, in their original form, are smooth and in a bright, neutral color. However, their simple appearance can be altered, making the pressed batch stand out immediately and catch attention compared to other discs.
What can be placed on optical media?
In a home environment, you can label CDs and DVDs with special markers, but you must avoid sticking or painting anything on them, as it would cause permanent damage to the disc. If you want a colorful disc with graphics, text, and other effects, you should take care of that during the pressing phase, and this is where XDiSC comes in.
Optical media is available in various formats, and each of them can be customized with an individual design. Popular options include translucent discs, finished with a special coating that allows more light to shine through, providing intense, vivid colors with an impressive shine. Discs with a golden metallic finish also look very elegant – they can have a uniform hue or be partially covered with print.
Another intriguing effect is the print placed on a matte-lacquered disc and compact discs styled to resemble vinyl records, with a black surface and a label on the central part. Non-standard printing effects also include graphic mastering. XDiSC offers prints with embellishments (glossy or matte varnish), metallic and fluorescent inks, as well as personalization.
For those who appreciate eco-friendly solutions, the Eco Label technology may be appealing, where laser printing is applied directly to the disc – it can be a mirror effect on the background (dark text) or a mirror text on a dark background. Eco Label technology reduces energy and resource consumption, and the discs prepared in this way still look very attractive.
Interesting effects also extend to the packaging.
Not only the disc can have a decorative finish, but eye-catching accents can also be added to the packaging. In XDiSC, you can order, for example, a digipack with gold hot stamping or an additional cardboard element attached to the front of the cover. Another interesting option is vinyl envelopes with a 3D effect. Clients can either prepare the packaging design themselves or entrust it to specialists.
