Holiday Orders

UncategorizedGotMediaAdmin30 November 2015

This is a busy time of year for a lot of our customers leading into the holidays… Orders seem to always come in late in the season, with a desired delivery date of, “…please ship to me in time for me to finish my Christmas CD project before Christmas!” All kidding aside, it is a good idea to get your order in now for several reasons – 1.) UPS and FED EX always tend to add a day or two to their normal estimated shipping deliveries. 2.) Our stock/inventory can run low, with difficulty of being able to replace it in time; also due to the holiday rush. 3.) We always experience an increase of orders during the holiday season. So what does all this mean for you? It’s just a great idea to get your order in now before all this holiday madness!!

Inkjet vs Thermal

UncategorizedGotMediaAdmin19 November 2015

There are two options for printing text and designs on CD-R or DVD-R media – inkjet printing and thermal printing. These two processes have different methods of transferring ink onto the surface of discs, so they use different types of materials that work with either inkjet printable or thermal printable blank media.

CD/DVD inkjet printers spray tiny dots onto specially designed “inkjet printable” CDs which have a surface that is specifically created to absorb this ink.  These dots are smaller than the diameter of a human hair, and can combine from basic ink dyes to form the whole color spectrum. The process of printing on inkjet CDs and DVDs is just like a standard paper inkjet printer, only you’re printing on the disc surface instead of paper.

Thermal printing is more often associated with professional duplication and design work. A CD or DVD that you purchase from a store as a movie or music album has been silk-screen printed. The printed surface is permanent, the surface can be shiny, the edges of the colors are sharp, the text is crisp, and there can be the feel of raised ink. Thermal printing has similar characteristics to silk-screened printing. Thermal printers produce a permanent image; they use heat and pressure to transfer print materials to the disc surface rather than spraying ink. Single, dual and multi-color ribbons are used during this transfer process for full-color output. Results from thermal printing are very durable and resistant to weather and wear, but the print resolutions can be less detailed than inkjet printing, topping out at about 300 x 600 dpi.

As far as cost goes, the initial investment in an inkjet printer is less than a thermal one. Both types of printers are designed to run in a production environment where discs are being created every day. Thermal printers are typically more durable and suited for the production environment that requires high-quality permanent color printing. Beyond this, full-color prints cost about the same for both. Blank printable media for inkjet or thermal printing are also very close in price.

Best Archiving Practices Using Disc Media

UncategorizedGotMediaAdmin16 November 2015

It’s a wonderful convenience in this day in age to have cloud services be able to share your contacts, music, photos, videos, etc. between your different devices; such as your phone, tablet or computer. This is especially helpful when you buy a new device, and would like to sync it with your other devices. But what about your larger or very important files? Should you trust cloud services completely? Uploads and downloads can be easily interrupted with a spotty internet connection or even powering up and down your devices unaware that your syncing is incomplete. Also, to get more than the allotted free space you get with most cloud services, you have to pay more. This is why it’s still a good idea to make disc archives of your important family photos, projects, music library, videos, or other large files. This way, you have the reliability of optical disc storage with no power source, you know exactly where the files are and the instant access ability whether you’re connected to the internet or not. Also, you can search the contents of your disc and immediately find whatever archived file you are looking for. The media matters – be sure to call GotMedia to learn more about the advantages of optical disc media storage options.
