CD & DVD Replication
For high volume orders (1000+ discs) replication is generally the most cost effective solution. Definitive Media is a manufacturer
in both CD & DVD in-house, enabling us to supply some jobs in as little as 4 working days. Upon receipt of your master, it is sent
to Glass Mastering from which a stamper is made - an exact copy of your master. This stamper is then used on injection moulding
lines to create replica discs - so your discs are made with the content already on them. Available discs formats include:
- DVD5, DVD9, DVD10, DUAL DISC (DVD one side - CD the other)
- Blu-ray 25, Blu-ray 50 (Double Layer)
- Mini Discs (8cm) - CD-ROM, DVD5, DVD9
- Business Card Discs, Custom Shaped - CD-ROM 35Mb, 50Mb
The discs are then coated with a protective lacquer and quality tested before having the artwork printed on them.
Replicated discs can be Litho, Screen or Digitally printed with your artwork. Our friendly team will help to advise
you on the best print option based on the nature of your artwork.
Lead-time for replicated disc is 5-12 working days depending on quantity and packaging, so contact us now, we are ready to
help you with your replication project.

we have the capacity to print & duplicate around 2000 units in a day if required. As standard, we use high quality 'Taiyo Yuden'
blank discs to duplicate ('burn') your master content onto, using 10-bay dupe towers or auto loading duplication machines. Available

- CD-R, CD-RW
- DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, Dual -Layer DVD
- Blu-ray BD-R

Prior to duplication, the discs are printed on with your artwork. Printing methods available for duplicated discs include Litho,
Screen, Digital, Thermal and Inkjet.
Lead-time for duplicated discs can be very quick (4hrs) if needed, but is usually 1-4 days (depending on quantity and packaging) -

Print and Packaging
Definitive Media offers the full spectrum of printing solutions:
Inkjet printing is used for low volume runs. It is the same process as a standard desktop printer. The ink prints directly to the
face of the disc and is great for full colour designs, though it is recommended that only limited areas of block colours are used.
Water-resistant discs can be used which give a glossy finish and allow colours to show more vibrantly.
Silk Screen printing is a stencil printing process, where ink passes through unblocked areas of a mesh to produce an image. Silk screen printing uses colour-separated films, a different screen is produced for each film and each colour is printed onto the CD/DVD surface. The ink is pushed through the mesh by squeegee onto the discs top. The UV light then applied on top of the disc.
A silk screen print is usually 85 - 100 lpi (lines per inch). The quality of the print is high and used as standard for greyscale images, very bright images, metallic images or spot colour jobs.
Litho / Offset / Digital print is the best CD print quality available at 150-175 lpi. There are 4 separate colours (CMYK). The inks are applied onto the disc top by rollers. Litho/Offset print is able to show smaller text and details of an image smoothly and clearly. Photographic images, skin tones, full colour graphics and text are all improved with this print option.
The amount of background tones required for an acceptable screen print is 50%+ colour per C.M.Y.K. separation. Litho should print tones down to approx. 3%.
Once your media has been printed on, the right type of packaging can really help to enhance your products. From printed CShells, CD/DVD cases and card wallets to bespoke boxes, tins and eco-friendly packaging, we can provide the perfect solution to fit your needs:
So whatever your packaging requirements, we can offer solutions at competitive pricing, call us now, we are ready to help you with your project.
