How Do You Label Your CD-R Disks?

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
I searched and found some info from a post 4 years ago so I am hoping for the latest in disk labeling techniques. I have been writing on my disks with a sharpie for years but lately found that this ruins them as the ink seeps into the plastic slowly over time. Please provide links to software/hardware solutions if possible.

Ive got some CD-Rs made donkeys ago which I wrote on with pen and none of them has ever had the ink seep through like you describe. Are you using a big perminant marker or an actual for-use-with-cds felt tip?

I use TDK CD marker pens, the water based variety. Anything else, including special stick on CD labels etc can hamper playback or damage the disk.

Sharpie

dunno about all the technical ramifications, been using them for years with no noticable effect

My marker has been a sharpie. I take good care of my music too! The symptoms I am observing is actual music drop outs. The disks in question have no visible scratches so assume it is the ink.

Maybe just switching to these?:

So, no one uses a label systems/software from Neato, Avery, Mediaface etc...? No one uses a lightscribe burner? There has to be a good way to automate the labeling process. What about core labels? They would seem to be pretty unobtrusive and not cause playback problems.

I just use any permanent pen. I have a CD-R from 10 years that I labelled with a perm pen and it still works.

I have DVD burner LG GSA-H22L with Lightscribe.
What I don't like in lightscribing:
- it takes too much time;
- picture is monochrome only.

I'd never do that. See section 5.2.7.

LightScribe. Its simple and clean for B&W

for artwork with color I just use SureThing labeler, although Neros Ultra 7 version works nicely too out to Memorex or other stock white label to an HP inkjet printer.

lightscribe works , take about 20mins per full disc labelling.
buy canon pixma printer with cd tray, put your printable cd-r in, works great.
