New to here and new to DIY disc making.
I’m printing on a Canon PIXMA iP4950, on white printable discs. I’m very pleased with the printer and the quality of the prints. However I have found that the surface, after printing, is very easy to scratch. A little drag across the surface with my fingernail will remove the paint.
I’m using these for ‘semi professional’ purposes, showcasing my showreel, films etc, and it isn’t really good enough. I need to send them it out in a 8 disc case, but when the dvd’s touch the plastic and jiggle around, they get scuffed up and look a little shoddy.
Any tips or advise will be greatly appreciated.[/QUOTE]
Welcome to the forum
Exactly which white printable discs are you using? How much drying time are you allowing before testing the print surface? Minimum of a few hours is required for some glossy surfaces. I’m guessing you’re using glossies, as matte white discs almost never exhibit this kind of trouble. All printable disc surfaces are supposed to completely absorb the ink and be reasonably immune to the problem you’re having. You may have to either reduce the saturation level when printing or switch to a disc with a print surface more compatible with your printer’s ink.
