Offset printing is done at a higher resolution and there are no limitations on tonal ranges. This allows the disc image to contain smaller fonts and much more detailed images. We highly recommend this process when working in four color process, if the artwork is fairly detailed, and uses a great deal of color or tonal ranges.
Offset printing applies 4 layers of ink (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) onto the CD Rom or DVD surface. For each layer, a reverse image of the page is placed on a roller in the printing press. Ink is applied to the non-image areas on the roller, so that as the roller presses against paper moving through the press, the proper image is left on the paper. Offset printing is ideal for intricate full-color designs, skin tones, and crisp text.
