Versamax ribbons allow you to print on to a wide range of coated CD and DVD media. Unlike Photo or Color ribbons, VersaMax ribbon adds the proprietary adhesive panel to the 3 existing CMY (Cyan, Magenta and Yellow) panels.
With thermal re-transfer technology, the printer prints a transparent film
and then permanently transfers this, with the underlying imprint, to the
media. The result is an exceptional quality print result, which stands up to
any comparison with conventionally finished DVDs /CD-Rs.
You have experienced inconsistent print-quality with inkjet printing. Print quality will look
different based on how much ink remains in any of the cartridges. With thermal printing,
each ribbon contains enough pigment to print 500 discs. Each print is identical.
Inkjet-printed media could take a few minutes to dry. But inks stay wet around the outside
edge and on the inner hub due to surface finish characteristics of all discs. This leads to ink
“smearing and smudging” caused by handling of undried discs. Thermal prints are never
wet to have to dry! Thermal technology eliminates dry time.
Inkjet prints will easily scratch, fade, run and smudge. This will never happen with thermal
Inkjet Printing can create visible horizontal lines (‘bands’) across the disc as ink runs out. Banding
happens generally with larger jobs that are set up to run unattended. What is your real
cost-per-print when you have to throw out 20 bad discs repeatedly? With thermal printing,
500 identical discs-per-ribbon is assured, so you can truly use the printer unattended.
Inkjet printer can not print to the edge of the disc. Due to non-printable characteristic of the
edges of an inkjet disc, overrun ink never dries and smears when touched. Thermal printing
