Printing samples
  • Not too long ago, independent artists used to have to come up with a lot of money to produce their CD’s; including the printing of inserts, booklets, inlays, and slipcases. They’d end up with stacks of boxes to manage, in the hopes of one day selling them all and turning a profit. Today, you can order and produce as few as 100 at a time.

    Here at we offer our services to accommodate short run CD Products by providing a range of CD Inserts from a 4.75” x 4.75”, 2-Sided, single insert all the way up to 12 Panel Poster inserts! We also make CD Insert Trays/Inlays and CD Booklets; but not just for the single cd jewel case. We can accomodate printing for double-cd jewelcases as well as inserts and booklets for digipaks (assembly not included). Each of these products are printed on a quality 100# Gloss Text stock and shipped to you or your distributor ready for insertion into the jewel case (not included).

    If you work for a music publisher, distribution company, or are promoting your own music you know CD’s are still relevant in today’s digital age because they are a tangible link to an artist or group. With today’s technology just about anyone can produce their own music and market themselves. For most artists, releasing or producing their album on CD is almost effortless now.

    To assist with the creation process, we have design templates for each CD product and they can be used in any of the Adobe applications, including Illustrator and InDesign. Our templates distinctly emphasize, cut, bleed, folds, and color space profiles.

  • You get quick and affordable pricing with our pricing calculator. We make ordering easy by putting everything on one page. All CD products are printed on-site using the finest offset and digital equipment, technology and services available anywhere. We are known for excellent quality and shipping on time for any order we get!

    Because we have such a wide variety of products, we've listed shared options for each product as well as a direct link for each product we offer.

    Ink Formats

    4 Color (Full Color):

    A printing technique that uses the four process colors, cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK) in varying proportions to create thousands of colors. Color images are reproduced using a pattern of overlapping, different-sized dots in the four process colors. This is also known as Full Color, as in a color photograph.

    Black Only:

    We use a black ink called "Work & Turn" Black. It is a more dense black than the process black used in 4 Color Process printing.

    4 Color and Black Combinations:

    Our pricing calculator does accomodate a combination of black only and full color pages dispersed throughout the inside pages of a book. If your project is a combination of different ink styles, or requires a special color, we would be pleased to give you a custom quote.

    Our online prices are pretty competitive for short runs under 7500. But, if you need bulk printing or bulk pricing, we can definitely give you a fair price and accommodate other shipping options for large quantities.
