Before we get started...

You’ll need to make sure your images are up to par by reading this handy guide on what we can (and can’t) custom stamp onto your discs.

All artwork submitted for reproduction must be original work or include written authorization from the holder(s) of reproduction rights. If you have questions regarding the possibility of copyright infringement it is strongly recommended that you research all available resources to insure compliance. The CCC is a not-for-profit organization created at the suggestion of Congress to help organizations comply with U.S. copyright law. To learn more, visit www.copyright.com

Requirements:

Images should be submitted as black and white. camera-ready art at 300 DPI or higher resolution. This is necessary to achieve a clean stamp. For best results, please provide a vector-based file.

File extensions accepted:

[.ai, .pdf, .eps, .svg, .png, .jpg, .tif, .psd]

Coverage areas:

Avoid solid areas larger than ½”. Large, solid areas cause incomplete stamps from air getting trapped under the foil. Outlining artwork can help in most cases.

Bridging:

Areas that are too small may “bridge” or fill in. Very fine lines in conjunction with solid areas can produce “cut through” from uneven distribution of stamping pressure.

Text:

Text size should be 12 points or higher. To avoid letters bridging on to each other, select a font that is well-spaced between each character.

Avoid the center:

If possible, leave the center of the design blank or with very little line work. The sprue, located on the underside-center of a disc, can cause drops outs due to an unevenness on the flight plate.

Artwork Sizes:

Mini Disc Print Size: Up to 2.75”

Regular Disc Print Size: Up to 5.25”
