Default Re: CD labeling help

If they are smooth I can print them with my TDK thermal printer. It is limited to one or two small areas, not the whole surface. I cannot print on inkjet printable disks.

See https://www.service-data.com/product...-rom-disc-only which is one area. Second or alternative area would be the same place at the top. Black text only, and four lines like that per area is all you can fit in. In theory basic graphics can be included but they don't look good, so stick with text.

The instructions say the disks should be blank when printed. This is probably in case the heat from the printing affects the recording. I always print blank then write and verify afterwards. I have never had any problems with the printing affecting the disks but there is no guarantees.

The printer ribbons are quite expensive (about 12, which does 40 areas) so you are looking at 30p per print area, plus return postage.

If interested please PM me.
