Artwork Tips to Follow before Getting CD Replication
When you plan on having CDs replicated and intend on turning in a design with the master, you should be careful with how you produce the artwork to avoid problems that could delay the replication services.
Use the Right Templates
After deciding to use a particular provider for the CD replication, you need to make sure to follow the templates they provide before automatically choosing one on your own. Fortunately, there are several common templates that companies tend to use, and if you plan on using one of them, you do not have to worry so much about choosing the CD replication provider immediately.
Avoid Text in Photoshop
Although Photoshop is an excellent piece of software for creating some of the CD’s artwork, you do not want to create text from this software as it can lead to quality problems because of the rasterization.
It is best to rely on other software for text, such as InDesign or Illustrator, which will not have this problem.
Proofread and Analyze
One of the best ways to have a smooth experience with CD replication is by carefully proofreading and analyzing the artwork before sending it in for printing. It is important to understand that each change that must be made to the proof requires re-ripping and re-creating, which is costly and time-consuming.
Creating a design for your CDs on your own can be challenging, but following proper instructions can help you get through the process successfully. However, you might find it easier to opt for professional assistance, which can produce higher quality work and avoid issues that amateurs often make.
