I’m sorry i guess i must be more picky than you guys Been printing directly onto discs since 2000-01. Back when Verbatim printable discs used to have a big logo on the printable surface and of course they were not fullface back then
As i say Epson Print CD/Canon’s print cd software are average imho. However i did use
Epson Print CD from 2004-2005.Then moved to a canon ip4000 in late 2005 and discovered nero cover designer was the best. But of course i have tried Epson Print CD since then. But imho it really is down to the discs and not the software/printer setup
I hate to see the less then a mm of white showing,either at the edge(top or bottom) or the left/right of the middle etc
A guy saying oh i just use 22mm 119mm setup in PrintCD and never any white doesn’t even make sense. I remember you always had to offset your printer as well as every printer is not the same. I can remember going thru lots of ip4300 printers and each new printer was slightly off in the printing by the odd mm so i would have to tweak the cd template.
And then the dvd/cd spindles can vary from batch to batch and again you would have to change the template by the odd mm. So you cannot really say oh 22mm 119mm in printcd and it prints prefect everytime
I’ll say again if you under and over print TY/Verb/Ritek etc discs and wipe the excess ink away with a cotton bud/tissue you will still be left with the odd mm of white.
And on top of all that you gets discs were the outter edges of the discs and not perfectly uniform(verbs tend to be the worse for this) Were the outter edges are not a totally smooth round circle. If you know what i mean! and again this can leave tiny bits of white
And lots of times the cd tray will feed thru the odd mm to the left or right and again this lead to an off centre print and you will be left with the odd mm of white
But Falcon/Sony DAC and Mediarange pro have the “The underside of the disk is fully metalized, allowing for a continuous print image even in the interior zone.
The printable surface extends 0.5 mm past the white undercoating in order to prevent visible white edges caused by non-centered printing.”
Which cures this problem. Imation Aquaguard and MBI Aquashield don’t have the above syatem but you can under print and over print them by the odd mm and thus they will not leave any white
