I've seen the info on archival cd storage and it says "no solvent-based markers" (to write on the discs).

So ........... What kind of marker is safe to use on cds ??

Thanks for any input on the matter.

Sharpies are solvent free

Thanks Rob for your post as I had the same question that I was getting ready to post. I was a little concerned that I had screwed up used shapies on all of my CDR labeling. Is there any benefit to not using markers all together?

To reduce risk completely I just write on the inner circle. Those damned TY Fuji's wreck my sharpies with the ridges all over the inner circle, but it's worth it to know that I've eliminated any potential problem that could arise from labeling on the actual disc.

Oh, and if you make a mistake labeling that inner circle with a sharpie, a regular pencil eraser does the trick. Just make sure to clean up all the crumbsl, or they ruin your burn...

thanks for the tips. !
if Sharpies are o.k., then ... that was my main concern (and all this time I thought I was sniffing solvent)

I have often wondered what , if any, damage writing on the disc with a sharpie could do? I write on all of mine with Sharpies. Would love to know if there is any harm that could come from this.

I've been using the "CD Markers" made by Memorex, which are water-based, but permanent ink. No ill effects so far. I suspect I'll be six feet under, or there will be a major change in media technology, before any problems would show up anyway.

I hope the media change comes long before the six feet under part.

I used to work for a software company. We always used Sanford Sharpies to mark our copies. I suggest the ultra-fine or extra-fine tips.

Happy Trading
