Creating A Printable Surface on DVD/CD?

If someone was fortunate enough to get a stack of non printable plain surfaced dvd or cd.

My Question

Is there a way to treat the surface with a spray on formulation that will leave the disc printable?

I had thought of vehicle bodywork spray on primer?

Thanks in advance for input :slight_smile:

Not that I know of. Good luck :bigsmile:

Someone gave me once a cd-r which had a paper pasted on top of it. I don’t have a cd printer so I don’t know if it works.

please, don’t use the sticky on lables :a

Hear, hear. Sticky labels = evil :iagree:


the paper label would be a quick solution but I never had any dvd’s that played properly when a paper lable was applied to them, so its not and option, thats why i am looking for a D.I.Y. spray on solution. Thanks for your input.

Inkjet coating is water-based, and must absorb the ink without bleeding and be smudge-proof. There’s no paint that will accomplish this.

Good to know, and the search goes on :slight_smile:
