Precision Laminate

Sounds Good has refined the 'Precision Laminate' system - our exclusive on-body print process for duplicated CD-Rs and

Sounds Good originally developed the 'Precision Laminate' system in order to overcome the inherent quality and logistical problems of existing short-run disc print processes.

We found our customers were demanding the same quality of print on a duplicated disc that they get on a screen - printed pressed

disc. But existing inkjet and thermal print technologies were too slow in a production environment; the colour reproduction was poor and special printable blank media were required. Inkjet print also has the alarming tendency to rub off easily when handled. Screenprint can give the look of pressed disc, but is not economically viable in the context of short-run duplication. However, our 'Precision Laminate' system combines high resolution and accurate colour reproduction with a stable finish that doesn't rub off.

The news is that the latest development of the process is an even thinner plastic laminate sheet, which we print in accurate high-resolution CMYK colour on our high-speed digital print technology, then apply to the discs on new purpose-designed semi-automatic laminating machinery - enabling us to achieve the quality and express turnaround that our customers require.

Even better news - the 'Precision Laminate' process comes as standard on all duplicated CD & DVD product!
