Thermal ink jet CD label printing and inkjet CD label printing are general terms used for ink jet printing utilizing a nozzle or 'jet' to spray ink in a very precise manner.
- Thermal inkjet
- Pizzo-electric inkjet
Thermal Inkjet printing heats up the ink to create 'pressure' that causes the ink to spray out of the print head nozzle.
Pizzo-electric uses a device similar to the old 'joy buzzer' that vibrates when electricity is applied to it. This creates a very precise metered amount of ink to spray out of the print head nozzle. The effect is a well rounded 'dot' instead of a irregular shaped application.Read More

Professional BD, DVD, CD printers
Unlike the home CD printer a professional DVD/CD printer is designed for continuous CD printing and features a built in disc tray that self aligns itself.
The links provide greater information on each DVD CD label printer to avoid a major novel on one page. If you have any questions or observations please give us feedback via the comments. We would love to hear from you. :)
Primera uses in-line robotics in it's newest offerings. A long way from the old Composer series which had a swinging robotic arm.
Bravo II Auto-loader: Primera's auto-loaders and automated DVD duplicators use a Lexmark print engine. The Bravo II series use a two ink cartridge system. Primera/lexmark ink is proprietary, that is one can only buy Primera 'branded' cartridges. The Bravo II is PC and Mac compatible and connects via a USB cable. Includes disc labeling software. One year warrantyRead More

CD Printer Review
Our yearly review of DVD CD printers will cover home CD printers in the first part and professional DVD CD printers in the second part so the reader has a wider knowledge of the technologies available. Home CD printers change model numbers at a fairly quick rate so we would recommend Epson and Canon as a general rule for the casual disc labeling job.
Home CD printers use a special plastic template that guides the printable disc through a standard model ink jet printer that allows for straight path printing (can feed horizontally in addition to top feed). Disc labeling software is necessary for designing and printing and is included with advertised CD/DVD printers. It is possibleRead More

Surprisingly the cheapest way to print high quality CD-R and DVD-R is to out-source your production. That is have a service bureau or duplication business do the printing for you. The price may seem high until one figures in the cost of purchasing CD printer equipment, printable discs and ink. Also any labor costs need to be figured into the cost.
Lets move onto some other cheap methods for printing labels. Probably the most obvious and also the worst method of labeling CDs and DVDS is to use stick on labels. Several major issues with stick on labels include the glue damaging the recording layer, label peeling off in the player and the unbalancing of the disc while recording and playback. This wobble damages the drive and makes a poor quality copy.Read More

When asking "what is the best inkjet printer for CDs" there are several additional questions to ask yourself.
- How many discs do you want to produce in a day, week or month?
- Will you be doing full color printing or just text and simple graphics?
- Are you looking for a dedicated CD printer or a multi function printer?
The quantity of discs you want to produce has a large influence on the type of inkjet CD printer you are going to need. There are three types of CD inkjet printers.Read More

Here are a few more questions we have been asked about CD printers. Labeling your CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray recordable discs is a great way to give a professional look to your projects.
Can you use an inkjet printer on thermal dvd?
Yes and no, You can use it but it does not dry and just smudges. Inkjet sprays a dye and thermal applies a wax based resin to the disc. If you don't want a mess buy inkjet printable discs.
Can I put labels on printable dvd?
You can put labels on printable DVDs but it's not recommended. Stick on labels are a bad idea with DVDs.Read More

A very confusing term for CD label printers is the use of the word “thermal”. In this article I will explain the difference between thermal inkjet and inkjet as related to CD labeling.
The first thing to understand is thermal direct printing and thermal inkjet are not related in anyway except for the fact that they are both CD/DVD printing methods. One can not print on thermal printable disc media with a ‘thermal’ inkjet printer unless you want a big smear of ink on your disc. The printable media for thermal printing and thermal inkjet printing are completely different. Inkjet printable media absorbs ink unlike thermal printable discs that are designed not to absorb ink.Read More

Finding an inexpensive CD printer can be problematic. Epson makes some caddy based all in one devices which contain a scanner and inkjet printer or just the inkjet printer alone. Epson seems to keep discontinuing the models so it's a bit difficult to speak of a specific models performance. Caddies are a plastic template that holds a CD or DVD and moves through the printer feeder like an envelope with the disc held in place as the ink jet print head passes over the inkjet printable disc.
Two entry level CD/DVD printers available in the marketplace are the DYMO DiscPainter and the CD Dimensions DISCPRINTER thermal disc printer. The two represent different printer technologies available today. the Dymo relies on ink jet technology and the DISCPRINTER uses thermal transfer technology. Even more unique in the case of the DiscPainter is the radial printing technology incorporated into the DYMO DiscPrinter.Read More
