what is the best Printable blu-ray media out there

I have been selling event DVD's for a while and using TY watershield discs with great luck, and have just stepped into the world of HD. I am trying to find the best Blu-Ray media, I would prefer printable as that really gives it a much more professional look, any help would be greatly appreciated. I would love to find a water resistant one, but it isn't looking to good for that.

Thanks

Ryan

Ryan, I'm afraid I can't respond to your query about waterproof, as I haven't
had any of my BDs exposed to water by customers (or I should say more
accurately, I haven't had any complaints about running lables!), and I have
not done any individual research re the best disc - instead, I've let others
do it for me, and thought I'd comment since no one else has responded to you
(even with the typical wise ass "why haven't you done a search!").

From the git go, I have used only Verbatim BD-R printable discs, as everything I'd read indicated
that Verbatim's production (and that of only one other firm) was the most reliable
out there in terms of reliability of customer playback. And used with an Epson 320 or
Epson Artisan 50 to easily and beautifully print the discs, I don't see how this
combo can be beat (except re price, if you are willing to go for the production of
some coasters and test every one!).

I use Verbatim BD before. but I can't find the hub printable blanks. Now I'm using TDK. They work fine with inkjet and hub printable. I also spray fixative on top of it for smudge protection =)

what sort of fixative do you use? I hadn't thought of this option but it would be nice to not have to spend so much on the watershield blanks.
