How to Supply CD and DVD Artwork

DVD and CD Print

At 10pdm we offer DVD and CD Printing using Litho, Screen or Digital technology. Our printable area is 17mm to 118mm and we request that all artwork is supplied (where possible) as hi resolution PDF files with any fonts as outline.

We recommend that artwork is supplied with any masks on a separate layer as we will mask out to fit our templates. Please download the DVD and CD printing templates and use these to lay out your artwork as this will save time and cost in artwork preparation.

Artwork needs to be supplied as CMYK and not RGB and if Pantone colours are used these should be listed.

  • PDF
  • 300dpi
  • CMYK
  • 17mm / 118mm
  • No Masking
  • Fonts as outline
  • Pantone references (if used)

For paper parts please lay out in printers pairs and allow 3mm bleed. Artwork should be supplied as hi resolution PDF files with text as outlines and in CMYK. Please note that any images supplied as RGB will result in a big difference in expected colour output.

For a help on bleed and generating print ready PDF files please download this guide:

If you have existing materials that need to match anything we are printing please supply a colour sample to match to as we cannot be responsible for differences in colour due to artwork, substrate and print method.

We also offer a full design and layout service if you do not have artwork prepared. Please contact us if you require this service.
