Something to write on cd's and dvd's?

Postby NoSmartz on Tue Apr 06, 2004 10:52 pm

I usually just write the titles of my music or data on the surface with a sharpie but is there anything out there that can right on a cd like they do on commercially available one?I guess they're laser or something like that.If so are they affordable?No stickable labels that you print out on printers pelase!!!!

Well factory applied artwork is silkscreened. You can buy printable discs and a special printer that prints directly on the disc (Epson).

The Canon i865 will also print directly on a disc. This goes for about 180 Euros in Germany, but is hard to find. I "just" upgraded to a Canon i850 last year (after 11 years with a DeskJet 500 B/W :roll:), otherwise I would have gone with that one.
