What exactly is inkjet printable media? I have a CD lableing system and as far as I know it works on all media that I have tried it on at least. Do newer printers allow you to put a CD or DVD through them somehow? Sorry for asking such a wierd/dumb question.

Thanks
Shawn

It has a coating that is similar to the coating on premium inkjet paper. This coating allows the disc to be printed on by an injet printer. Ther are a few available printers that can feed a CDR, and a couple more that you can buy kits for to convert to CDR printing. Epson and Canon are 2 that come to mind.

Incidentally, the coated CDR’s are also very good for marking on with most any pen or pencil.
