No More Paper Labels

by negy18 / April 21, 2009 11:48 AM PDT

I have a HP Officejet L7680 Printer. Have been using this printer to make my labels. The program I'm using is Neato and the paper labels were also from Neato. I was having some issues with my DVDs freezing in different DVD players. I changed my DVDs to Taiyo Yuden. These DVds seem to better. But I want to get away from using the paper labels. Can't really aford a thermal printer. I was thinking about the Epson Artisan 800. What is your fellings about this printer to make DVDs from my JPEGs instead of using paper labels. Or you suggest any other printer.

Printer/CD/DVD capability

The Epsons work pretty well for printing to CD/DVD. HP and Canon make units that print to printable media as well. Any of them would be better than using paper labels.

For labeled media I've turned to Lightscribe.

Not as pretty but it works. Some may quibble over media costs but a new printer and ink costs too. Now that I've been using this for awhile it doesn't seem as costly.

However there is the time factor. I have to be sure I want to wait for lightscribe to do the recording (some 20 minutes at highest resolution settings.)
