advice on dvd laminator / coater
Hi everyone I m new to this forum and would be greatfull if anyone could me help me with some advice. I m Rob and am looking into dvd laminaters or coaters. I am trying to get a really good finish on my dvds. I have a epson p50 dvd printer which gives a really good print. I would like to improve the look of the finished dvd by laminating it in either gloss or matt. I have not seen the finshed artical yet but have read it is very professional looking.
I have researched the dvd laminaters / coaters out there and the prices are crazy. I was hoping to buy a small desktop one for myself but have yet to come across one. I have never used the sprays, are they any good? Is there any other way to coat them? Any advice would be greatly recieved. Thank You in advance.

You don't seem to be getting any responses here in the Newbies. I'm going to move your thread into the Blank Media forum, where you should get some more informed replies.
Disc printing, laminating and sprays are beyond my experience I'm afraid, else I would try to help you myself.
Always the best offers

I'm sorry I avoided answering. We do tens of thousands of prints-on-DVDs, and while I've considered "coatings", I've decided to forego hairspray (remember that was a 'glue' agent for school-yard charcoal drawings) or anything else.
There are some threads about different printing surfaces but I've accepted the fact that, if I use my printed DVDs as taco-chips or skipped them down the creek, I'd probably not have the best-resulting printed surface.
Of course, sometimes I can catch Hubby and tell him some rancid joke that makes him snort & spew his coffee across the desk. I don't mind that. Even if he does make me re-print disks.

Unfortunately, the cost of a heat fused disc laminator is going to be rather high. Most of us looking for that professional sealed print look are using glossy printable media. As you have an Epson with claria ink, I think you would be very pleased with the results. Waterproof glossies such as TY Watershield, Verbatim AquaAce, or Falcon Smart Guard are generally in the $.60/ea. range. Non waterproof glossies can be found at regular matte printable pricing. Have you tried any of these options?
