Re: DVD and Bluray disc printers

I used to print my own on standard printable blanks, then 'graduated' to water shield blanks, but now I use this service to create thermal dye sublimation printed disks and the results are truly amazing!

Because they are local (to me) the turn around time is very quick!

Re: DVD and Bluray disc printers

Anyone have any pictures of a finished product printed directly from an pixma inkjet or similar? Trying to decide if this is the best route to go?

Re: DVD and Bluray disc printers

This DVD was printed using the Canon MG5420. I put an original DVD that was previously printed on an Epson R1800 into the MG5420 and it scanned the DVD and printed onto a blank. The main difference in qaulity seems that I used to get a glossy coating on the R1800 DVDs, but the MG5420 doesn't have a gloss ink cartridge, so they are matte finish. I haven't made a DVD yet on this Canon printer by using a printing program.

I use the same one as well and have had nothing but success for printing disks; however, I do have a major problem with mine when printing to paper. I have a problem with it grabbing three or more pieces of paper instead of just one. This typically happens if I'm printing a document with more than just a couple of pages. I wish I knew what was causing it because it does work well with discs.

Re: DVD and Bluray disc printers

Oh yeah, in terms of printing on paper sometimes it is flakey.

I don't usually have an issue with just regular printer paper, but when I go to print anything special like Photo Matte or Photo Glossy, things go all haywire and a lot of times it misfeeds and comes out slightly crooked. Other times the opposing corner edges get all kinds of color blobs on them.

But discs, always great.

Re: DVD and Bluray disc printers

On my 1400 I've had trouble when I print Jewelbox cases. It's a heavy matte paper and the printer rollers just don't like the paper. It'll pull 1 then unless I wipe the rollers down it doesn't like the 2nd one on. I have given up using the cases, it wasn't worth the hassle and headaches, plus my neighbors got tired of hearing me yell at my printer.
