Pennsauken, NJ (June 22, 2006)–Disc Makers has introduced its Ultra HydroShield water-resistant, inkjet, printable CD-Rs, using Taiyo Yuden’s WaterShield technology. Unlike the “matte” finish of other printable CD-Rs, Ultra HydroShield discs have a glossy surface that enhances colors and dries the ink as soon as the disc is printed.
The technology, built into Disc Makers’ professional-grade Ultra blank media, locks in the ink from an inkjet printer, and dries instantly, leaving the disc well protected against smudging, humidity and small spills.
“Our Ultra HydroShield CD-Rs represent a revolution in on-disc inkjet printing, because they eliminate the aspect of inkjet printing that customers liked the least–the fact that the ink didn’t dry instantly, and was prone to smudging when it came in contact with moisture,” said Tony van Veen, executive vice president. “Now you get the highest quality on-disc printing available, without having to buy an expensive Everest printer. Our Ultra HydroShield media allows our customers to save thousands on their printer, since we carry inkjet printers starting at under $150.”
Disc Makers is offering the Ultra HydroShield media direct to consumers through its new catalog and on its DiscMarket.com website (www.discmarket.com). Disc Makers also plans to introduce Ultra HydroShield DVD-Rs later this summer.
