DVD label maker

Hey guys what dvd label maker do you recommend? Looking for one that does both the dvd and dvd jewel case insert. Heard Avery has one you can buy at Best Buy or Walmart that works well. What are all y'all guys using?

Re: DVD label maker

I stay away from stick-on labels as I used to replace that by printing directly on the white printable disc using my Epson Printer. Now I use LightScribe and do away with printing altogether.

Re: DVD label maker

I also print directly to DVD as I have had labels peel off in the old days and the chances are it will jam inside your client's DVD player so rather stay away from them. Ink Jet surfaced DVD's are cheap as chips anyway!

I use Epson Premium Ink Jet Paper for my inserts ..Matt is all you need as the clear plastic sleeve around the case gives the sleeve a glassy look. Just make a template in your favourite graphics software then all you need to do is pop the images in.

The #1 CD/DVD Label and Cover Maker for Windows featuring SuperVibrant CD/DVD Labels | www.surething.com does a nice job. I use for inserts and to print on disc with my Epson printer.

Re: DVD label maker

I also use printable discs, mainly for the reasons that Chris mentions.

I have also got a supply of Lightscribe discs. Bear in mind that you need a lightscribe-capable writer to use them. You can get standalone drives if your built in drives cannot do that. The downsides are that they take a very long time to complete compared to printing discs plus they are no longer available in dual layer - so if you have a video which is larger than a single layer disc can take you would either have to split it over two discs or reduce the quality on rendering to make it smaller.

And for covers as Chris says just make up a template in Photoshop or whatever and adapt it to each client. If you send out for printing just put your template on a standard size print background: a DVD sleeve is 7.20" x 10.75" so make that template and then for printing at a lab drag it onto a 10" x 8" black background jpg image and trim it off on receipt.
