I had a demo version of EZ CD creator that came with an old external HP disc burner. It made great artwork and was really easy to use. Never bothered to get the whole package cause the demo was so sweet. ANYWAY I have terrible software for cd Artwork now. I would like something free like the Demo ref'd above. Is there shareware anywhere for this? Or something really cheap?

I bought something a few years back called "click and design" by CD Stomper. Can't remember what it cost, maybe around $35 (?) It gives you a template for the front and back of jewel cases and you can add any imagine to fit and print the spines perfectly. I use it all the time and it looks pretty good.

I'm using "Discus RE", limited version of Discus Labeling softoware, which is bundled with CD/DVD burner Roxio Toast.
Mine is limited version but very easy to use and am satisfied with its results.
Full version is $39 and their site is as follows.

Here's something I did for making CD case labels real quick and easy. Using MS Word, I switched to "Header and Footer" view and inserted a simple square graphic the size of the front label on jewel cases and slim-line cases. Position the top edge of the box against the top margin of the header box. Place your box dead center between the side margins. (Use alignment tools found with the Drawing Commands) Save this document somewhere where it is easily available and you are ready to go. You can also save it as a template file. (I created a macro for opening mine that I assigned to a blank toolbar button that I keep on my main toolbar)

In normal view you will be able to see your square, but because it is embedded in the header you don't have to worry about it getting messed up, deleted, or out of alignment.

You can now use this square graphic as a template guide for placing text boxes, graphics, word art, auto shapes, or importing pictures. Since the square is a header it will appear on each page of your document. This allows you to figure page 1 as the front of the label and page 2 as the inside of the label. Print page 1 first, flip the paper over and print page 2. I print my labels on standard printer paper thus eliminating the need to purchase costly blank labels.

Using the same method I have also created back inlay labels and fold-over booklet labels. Although they may sound a little bit complex to create and use, they're actually quite simple.

If anybody is interested I would be glad to email you a fully functional copy of mine.

Get two for the price of one, and download the OpenOffice.org office suite, and use the label templates from here: http://ooextras.sourceforge.net/downloads/labels/ and have a free, fully functional, kick-arse office suite and a free and easy to use cd label maker.

I really like the slimline label maker - you can fit two on one sheet of paper and you can format text and everything to your heart's content.
