Preparing YOur Artwork

If WE are designing your CD or DVD project...

We would love to design your project. If you choose the CD Experts Design Studio, you put your image in the hands of creative, knowledgeable professionals. With special training and years of experience dealing with the specific challenges of CD and DVD printing, our designers can provide you with a top-notch product that allows you to project a professional image. We use the materials and ideas you submit and work from there to create a package that reflects your creative vision. Art proofs are sent via email for your approval and we don't go to print until we have your final approval.

If YOU are designing your CD or DVD project...

If you prefer to supply your design, we'll try to make it as easy as possible for you to supply them right the first time.

At CD Experts, we know that even when you're supplying the design, our reputation for major-label quality products is on the line. To help make sure your project meets or exceeds your expectations, we've put together some tips and guidelines on preparing print-ready files. Click here to download our art specifications sheet.


Get it right the first time! To make sure your project prints quickly and easily, we recommend that you review our specifications and get the appropriate templates before beginning your design.

These are available two ways:
- Click here to download templates.
- Call 1-866-424-4020 or email our design studio to request the templates that you need.

Design not supplied in CD Experts templates could delay the process and/or incur additional charges if more than minor adjustments are needed. We'll check your files to make sure your crop marks, folds, bleeds, and other specs are correct. If your files need any minor adjustments, we'll make them – for free. (Generally, we give you a half hour of our time for free for minor repairs.) We will also add a unique barcode to your files for FREE, if you need one. We will try to let you know if we see anything in your files that may diminish the final print quality and will work with you to find a solution, but we cannot ultimately be responsible for the quality of customer supplied files or the final print results. Final art proofs are sent via email for your approval before we go to print. We don't go to print until you're satisfied.
