Default Anybody make labels for CDs/DVDs? What software do you use and what brand labels?

Looking for info other than "use a sharpie" etc.

;-)

I've seen some kits offered by Avery, Fellowes, etc at Staples, but just wondering if this can be done with most burning software or whether you need an add on software program.

Thanks.

Oh, wow, seriously? Guess I didn't think of that. Big skip on the labels then eh?

Default It depends on where you are going to be using them

but for instance, a car stereo would be a bad place to use a cd with a label. I think in home dvd player you'd probably be okay but that's the reason I've personally stayed away from them.

Default LOL. Reading comprehension no good? I said "other than sharpie".

I was looking into them for the occasions such as when I burn a CD of music or digital photographs for someone and want to make it look nice. But given the feedback I've already received I think I'll forget the idea and just continue to use the sharpie.
