Does anyone here have any suggestions as to which or any label makers are worth owning?

I'm not sure if I will use the labels for my shows CDs but I have been creating a couple of DVDs for work and a couple of our vendors/salesman to use and I wouldn't mind creating labels for them to make the finished product look a little more professional.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Peace,
Josh

I used to use the CD Stamper but the paper stickers are messy and eventually peel away. I bought the Epson R200 printer which prints directly onto the CD and couldn't be happier.

I agree the Epson R200 works great.
Another tip I learned is after printing,
and the ink is completely dry
(especially fancy color art)
is to spray a light coat of Krylon clear
acrylic to seal the ink on the cd/dvd.

Personally I would stay away from the sticker method. Although they can look very nice, in the past I have had problems playing them in certain CD players due to the added thickness off the label. Best bet would be to what everyone else suggested with printing directly onto the CD. Just make sure you get the CD's/DVD's that come completely blank.

I was wondering about that. I usually use either TDK or FUJI discs, which ever I find on sale. Will the printer cover what is imprinted onto the CD/DVD or no? I don't want to use sh!tty discs just so I can print a label on them.

Thanks you very much for the help thus far.

No, you have to buy discs that say printable on the label.
They usually have a solid white coating,
more rarely a solid silver printable coating.

I got some with labels through a trade.

They were fine in the computer and home stereo, but got stuck in my car player.

I had to rig a pair of needle nosed pliers with some rubber tubing to get them out without scratching.

Hmm, I've wondered the same thing .

Does the Epson printer have a "holder" that accepts the "cd" that is to be printed ?

Is there a program required that tells the printer that it's printing on a CD and not on a piece of paper ?

I'm super new to the trading thing and actually just bought a bunch of bubble mailers and goodies today.
So someone please explain to the rookie how the printing directly to the disc is done.

Shoot, that's cheaper than the ink that I just bought for that printer! I think I paid about 99 for my printer and 60 for the ink refil (Epson ink).
