Recordable DVD-Rs come in a wide variety of top surfaces. "Branded" dvd discs have the manufacturer’s logo and other printed information silk-screened onto the top surface of the disc at the factory and often provide lined areas for handwriting information onto the disc. "Printable" surfaces, on the other hand, allow you to print directly onto the disc. There are currently three different CD, DVD disc printing technologies available- thermal transfer, thermal re-transfer, and inkjet (sometimes called ‘thermal inkjet’).
White Inkjet Printable dvds discs are specifically designed for use in inkjet disc printers. These are the most popular printers used with recordable DVD discs. Their low cost makes it much more affordable for general office use and low production run requirements. These discs have special surfaces designed to absorb the ink and typically cost a little more then a lacquer or branded discs. Top surfaces come in several colors, with silver inkjet printable being the most popular.
Thermal Printable DVD surfaced discs are used with printers that heat and then transfer a wax based image, from a printer ribbon, onto a DVD-R. Thermal printable media requires an extra coating on the top surface in order to protect the disc from the heating process. Discs that are designed for multi-color thermal transfer (printing more then one color on a disc) must have several protective coatings on the disc surface. That’s because when using these printers, the disc is heated multiple times thereby increasing the chance of damage or unsatisfactory printing results.
Many "blank" discs are coated in a final layer of lacquer and are often referred to as "shiny" discs. These lacquer top surface discs can provide satisfactory results for single color thermal printing, but for multicolor thermal printing purposes, we strongly recommend using ‘thermal color approved’ media.
Everest Printable DVD discs refer to discs specially formulated to work with Rimage’s Everest printer, and their patented thermal retransfer printing method. They require a special surface because of the rigors of this unique printing process. Thermal retransfer uses a special ribbon called a ‘retransfer roll’ to blend multiple colors for a more photographic reproduction of an image. This unique printing process requires disc surfaces that are specially formulated for the Rimage Everest printer.
Using other thermal or inkjet printable surfaces in an Everest printer can result in the top surface and reflective layer being ‘torn’ off the disc. Unfortunately, some people try to use media not certified for thermal retransfer printing, and end up with damaged discs. Does this happen every single time? No, but given the time, money and per disc print costs, is it worth it? Everest certified media costs more because it’s made differently. The additional, specially formulated top surface layers add to both material costs and production time.
Each DVD-R manufacturer has a unique top surface formulation for inkjet printable media so you will see differences between brands in color accuracy, ink absorbency, printed color vividness, and ability for the disc to dry quickly after being printed. Lower priced DVD-R brands tend to absorb ink slower, not blend colors as well, dry slower, and sometimes smudge more easily.
