Most CDs in North America are printed using the silkscreen method. Silkscreen printing is best for laying down large areas of strong vibrant colors. It really isn't well suited for printing pictures. Offset print is much better at printing pictures, and we can now offer this service at a price comparable to silkscreen printing.
Commercial DVDs are generally printed with the offset method. At duplication.ca you have your choice of silkscreen or offset.
