Default CD-r Labeling

How does CD-r labeling work?

My dad got all this free stuff from OfficeMax/Staples, to put some graphics on your CDrs...

By labeling, I mean things like, for example:

What the **** would you do with that picture? Print it and then what?

Well, i think you have a precut sheet of cd shapes on paper, and you make a design and print it on to it. Then you stick it on to the cd.

Yes, you can buy 8x11 sheets of 'sticker paper' that are PRE CUT for CD's... you put it in your printer, print on it, then peel the sticker off and put it on a CD.....

PERSONALLY, I will never use them, because a sharpie works just fine. Secondly, if some of the sticker comes off, it will unbalance the disc, and I don't think breaking a disc in a drive is worth it.

Yeah, I never print my labels, I write them. Sure, it doesnt look as good but its more simple. I guess that printed ones look better though.

Oh, how is it? I just checked the video out on - http://h10058.www1.hp.com/digital/en...ribe/home.html - it looks pretty decent.

On the really detailed ones, like ones with backgrounds it takes a while; but if I'm in a hurry I just burn the title on it. I got my lightscribe ROM for 52 dollars off newegg. I didn't get the HP version, I got Lite-On. So far I'm happy with it.

You also can't add color to it, but that isn't a big deal.
