You can also get a little casio printer that prints on the silver
discs, using a laser I think. B& W only.

Might work out better, since the discs are cheaper but you gotta buy
a dedicated printer.

This is the one I used at work, last year:

store a few labels in the memory; that was annoying. Also meant no

Might be a MAC driver for it by now, don't know. Or maybe you're not
on Mac.
