We press your compact discs

Compact discs now have to share the market with other digital formats. At the same time, in a world dominated by digital media, a physical medium such as a CD is once again being viewed as a valuable object. 40 years after it came on the market, the compact disc is thus undergoing a renaissance as an exclusive premium product. For this reason, we focus our work on the realization of particularly valuable CD products.

Whether it’s a select limited box set or a mass release – for us, every project represents an exciting new challenge and opportunity. We offer you advice and support on all matters relating to CD formats, materials and designs and features. We always have plenty of ideas that are guaranteed to make your CD a distinctive and unique product. Together we create a media product that has special value and significance for those who purchase it.

We make CDs valuable

Customers who choose the physical medium over a digital option usually have at least two good reasons for doing so. The first has to do with the sound quality CDs offer, which is superior to that of streamed music. More important, however, is the real intrinsic value that a physical data carrier and its cover materials possess. What could be more obvious than to create an overall more valuable product via an appealing exterior?

There’s no question that well-made products are more successful at the point of sale, and an appealing tactile and aesthetic experience of the media packaging often provides the all-important buying impulse. This is where we come in, as our solutions can make a difference to the success of your releases. With our print products and packaging solutions, we open up a whole cornucopia of possibilities for artistically appealing and, at the same time, sales-effective product design.

We manufacture reference grade Compact Discs

Not all CDs are the same. That’s why we make a clear promise to our customers to supply them with compact discs of the highest quality. This quality is reflected by a high degree of data integrity with measurably low block error rates and outstanding mechanical workmanship.

Last but not least – our high-quality manufacturing system also ensures that all of our CDs simply look great. We can offer all of these benefits because our industry partners use the best raw materials, possess the required manufacturing expertise and utilise state-of-the-art equipment and machines. It also goes without saying that all of our compact discs bear the label “Made in Germany”.

attractive surface finishings for Compact Discs

You can choose between two high-quality processes for your CD label imprint: For a delicate or photorealistic look, we recommend traditional offset printing. If you’re interested in a more graphic design, the time-honoured screen printing method provides for an impressive and striking appearance.

After that, a lacquer finish is applied to seal the surface and give the imprint a glossy and radiant look. We offer different lacquers in high gloss and silk-matt for surface sealing. A partial lacquer finish is a big eye-catcher in conjunction with certain designs, while vinyl-style compact discs make for a very attractive and exceptional appearance.

We produce optimal premasters for Compact Discs

We use your premaster as a production master. If the data is somewhat problematic, we create a specification-compliant pre-master in our mastering studio. We use premasters, which are basically digital data sets, to make a physical glass master.

The glass master then serves as a mechanical duplication tool for pressing your final version.
