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.
