Thermal and Inkjet Disc Printing

UncategorizedGotMediaAdmin09 May 2017

The technology in the media printing industry has advanced dramatically over the past few years. From MicroBoards, Primera, Epson, to Rimage, printers have a variety of quality options to chose from, but the subtle differences in the brands may better lend themselves to certain market verticals or industry fields.

What is one of the most critical variables to consider? Thermal or inkjet?

Thermal Printing

Thermal is the newer of the two technologies. It applies heat and pressure to transfer the ink from a ribbon to the disc itself to create a permanent bond of ink resin. This technique is often used for monochrome, spot color and full color disc printing and often reduces smudges and drying time because the finished print surface is permanent.

Inkjet Printing

Inkjet (or laser) printing applies droplets of liquid ink to the disc, ejecting liquid from the print head onto the surface. Printers that are capable of printing on CD, DVD and Blu-ray should use inkjet printable discs. These discs have an Ink Absorption Layer. Inkjet printing method is often subject to smudging, especially when humidity is a factor, and should not be shipped in soft plastic envelopes to avoid sticking.

Product Focus: The Epson PP-100AP Autoprinter

UncategorizedGotMediaAdmin04 May 2017

The Epson PP-100AP Autoprinter has been touted as one of the best printers in speed, reliability, and quality for semi-professional printers. Released by Epson, one of the leading manufacturers of inkjet printing, the Autoprinter has quickly become one of the most ideal solutions for printers who need rapid, large-batch printing at the quality of a professional printer but without the cost.

With four trays, the Autoprinter is capable of finishing up to 95 CD or DVD discs in an hour on the fast print setting, and up to 50 to 75 discs on the higher quality print settings – considered remarkable speed and efficiency for its size and cost. Epson’s sealed patented AcuGrip robotic technology moves the discs from station to station to prevent damage during printing. This printer even offers the novice printer easy-to-use software and templates for print jobs without a prescribed design format.

The Autoprinter houses six printer cartridges that allow for more than 1,000 discs to printed before changing one cartridge, and, when that time comes, printers can save on printing costs by only needing to replace one cartridge at a time. For the more advanced printers, with larger print jobs, up to six printers can be controlled by just one computer.

Maybe people are feeling nostalgic of their favorite bands and the audio CD box-set is perfect way to have the songs forever, or even to give as a gift to a music lover… it all makes sense to us here at GotMedia in Orange County, CA.

If you think about it, you can insert the disc into your computer and import all of the songs at once into your iTunes library so you have the digital copy AND the actual physical CD.

Disc Media Storage/Archiving

UncategorizedGotMediaAdmin17 April 2017

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.

Do-It-Yourself Disc Printing

UncategorizedGotMediaAdmin31 March 2017

Have you noticed that when you look at the available home desktop printers at Fry’s, Staples, Best Buy or Office Max from all of the major printer manufacturing brands, that it’s hard to find one that is just for printing? It seems that now days it’s not enough to just be able to print, they now need to be able to copy, scan, print two sided as well as print directly on to a printable disc; such as a CD-R, DVD-R or BD-R media that has an inkjet printable surface. However don’t be fooled, although you may be able to print on one disc at a time, it usually requires you to instal a plastic tray to hold the disc, use software you haven’t installed yet, and calibrate the printer to discs you hope to print one and this would most likely take a while to set up; using multiple discs. The best way to do your own disc publishing at home is still to use disc publishing equipment that’s made just for this task – literally you can take it out of the box, plug it in, install some cartridges and now you’re ready to burn and print hundreds of discs at a time! So whether you’re burning audio demo CDs to hand out, archive DVDs to back up important files or HD blu-ray discs to showcase your video in beautiful HD, be sure to call the experts at GotMedia to have them help you find the right duplication tower or disc printer that fits your specific needs.
