final client DVD, the Label & Package

I was wondering how some of you label your final DVD you give to clients? I used to use light-scribe but it really takes to long. like a half hour, and the contrast is not to good unless you run it 2 or 3 times, and then that's like 90 minutes for 1 DVD label. newer ones are faster just not sure how fast.

So i am thinking of going back to just printed color labels, Whats a good brand? or whats another good looking affordable way to label DVDs?

Don't use stick-on DVD labels. They look unprofessional and can damage a DVD player. Buy a printer that will print directly on inkjet-ready DVDs.

You can pick up this printer direct from Epson: Epson Artisan 50 Ink Jet Printer - Refurbished

It costs less than a set of ink cartridges and a pack of DVD lables.

Get Taiyo-Yuden (JVC) Watershield disks and your DVDs will look amazing.

I'm with Chris on this one. A decent Epson printer and TY (now owned by JVC) Watershield DVDs, BAM! Good to go. They look great.
