thermal printers are $$$, aren't they?
i use a $100 epson inkjet printer. mostly you have to keep the discs out of the rain (tho i think there's a way around this...). i'm not doing anything fancy, just name info, but i suppose you could print images
hp also makes cheap inkjet printers that print on cd/dvd's (though in the us you have to hack them a bit)
in general i wouldn't put too much energy into how a dvd looks if its just for festival screeners. selling copies is another story.

I rarely use it because it always seems to need a new ink cartridge and i just don't have time or cash to keep up with it.
