DVD labels

A problem w. Epson inkjets: if you don't use them frequently, the
heads clog. Also, unless you buy Taiyo Yuden, many of the inkjet
printable media pushed by the webstores are crap. Between these and
the difficulty of getting the label centered, I gave up on inkjets a
good while ago.

The best way to print a nice looking label on standard DVDs IMHO is
the Casio CW-50/75/100 printers. These use a thermal transfer.
Basically one color and text and line art only. Sony, TDK and now
Verbatim DVDs all have logos only on the sides, leaving the top and
bottom open for this type of printing. These brands are regularly
available cheap at best buy or comp usa sales (e.g. 100 for $26).

The Casio software is PC only. There's Mac shareware available, but
it's hard to find, and only in Japanese. The CW-75, as noted earlier,
has a keyboard and does not need to be attached to a computer.
