DVD Printing and Labeling Materials

#1

Out of curiosity I am wondering what materials people are using to label their DVDs and print their covers.

Printer: Canon Pixma IP 4500
Ink: Canon Genuine Ink http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BUWNH2/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
DVD: Taiyo Yuden Watershield http://www.meritline.com/taiyo-yuden-16x-dvd-r-water-shield-white-inkjet-printable.html
Paper: I was using Meritline Glossy DVD Case Inserts and using an Xacto knife to cut away the excess but the colors haven’t been as vibrant on this paper after switching to Canon. So I am looking for some new paper. I am currently trying out Epson S041140 A4 Glossy Photo Paper.

IMHO, glossy paper is a waste for cover inserts. Once they go under the plastic sleeves, it all looks the same. I use coated high-res matte paper from HP and it looks great.

As for the “vibrant color” you seek, this would be a matter of using the proper print driver settings for the IP4500. Try using different paper settings, and push the intensity up.

What kind of paper do you use?

If you want matte I get that from Rima

best price I have found so far. I don’t use it much, I like the quality of the Glossy.

[U]I myself[/U] do not think it’s a waste. I can tell the difference between the 2.

I use a Epson R260 printer to print the labels and to print straight to the disc.
