The discs are still the best you’ll find anywhere – We use top-quality Taiyo Yuden CDRs and DVDRs and….
WAIT TILL YOU SEE THE DISC PRINT –
Our stunning disc print is the hot new thermal retransfer (Everest), a quantum leap in disc printing technology. Waterproof, brilliant color, indelible, UV stable (won’t fade), nearly indestructible, the image is literally fused to the disc. There’s nothing like it. 160 lines per inch, a true paradigm shift in technology. Everest blows away traditional screen printing (90 LPI), and eclipses magazine print standards (150 LPI), delivering unequaled CD printing quality. It produces intense solids, more vibrant colors, and increased clarity and sharpness of image and enhanced color management and color matching. The patented technology gives a depth to the images not achievable with other printing methods. It also won’t scratch off – you’ll ruin the disc before you can scratch the label. This enables CD-Rs and DVD-Rs to now be used for commercial distribution because Everest printed discs can withstand the rigors of day-to-day consumer handling.
WE DO NOT DUPLICATE TO CUSTOMER SUPPLIED MEDIA.
Typical turn time: 2-7 working days. Faster turns may be available.
If you supply your own design files they must be production ready and to spec. If they are not, call to discuss whether I can finish them for you (depends on software and other factors). Usually it’s easier, faster and cheaper to let me handle the design from the start.

I started Crescent Music Services a few years after I had produced my own CD. Even though I made my living as a graphic designer, I fumbled around piecing my CD together with this printer and that replicator, not knowing what I was doing and figuring it out as I went along. I wish I knew then what I know now. I could have saved myself a lot of expense and would have ended up with a much better product. I realized that this is what I could help other musicians with. I have walked in their shoes and I understand how important their music is to them, and how difficult this part of the process can be. I know that their CDs are not just an investment into their future and an important marketing tool – it is an extension of themselves.
