For CD’s complete with printed artwork you have to take into account an average delivery time of 7 to 9 working days after we have received the (correct) PDF files and the audio-master or files. The delivery of CDs without printed matter (on spindle) is usually faster (6 to 8 days). Productions in digipacks can sometimes take a little longer (10 to 11 days). It is of course wise to plan well so that you are not left empty-handed during your presentation.
You you must always add a 3 mm margin around the document. To make space, have a photo, image or illustration that is on the edge of your document format run through at least 3 mm on all sides of the document. A cutting margin of 3 mm is therefore now created around a print file. This margin is called the “bleed”. Now carefree cutting can be done without creating a white stripe or border. Also make sure that important information such as text is placed a few millimeters from the cutting margin. This prevents texts or images from being pressed too close to the edge or even being cut off from the edge.
The CD or DVD printing has a diameter of 117 mm. An example / template for the printing can be found under the downloads section on the website. With the CD / DVD printing you do not have to take into account ‘3mm extra bleed’ for cutting. The center hole has a diameter of 24 mm. With the design, you can leave the center hole filled. Of course keep in mind that no text or faces, for example, are cut through the middle hole.
If the number of CDs to be produced is less than 500 we duplicate discs. Duplication has made major strides over the last few years. Today mediocre duplication is superior to bad replication. And superior duplication is better than mediocre replication. Lastly, superior duplication is every bit as good as the best replication.
