which printable cd?

  brainstorm 18:04 26 Oct 2008

I have an inkjet printer with the facility to print onto cd. I have looked to buy printable cds online but apart from the variety of makes, they are also variously descrbed as 'thermo' or other types of printable cd. I want to use them to keep my best photos. Can anyone advise what make to go for and what type of printable cd I need for an inkjet printer?

Printable CD's are much the same in this respect.
The thing is to establish what the seller means by 'Thermal'
The light scribe system[ Where the laser 'burns' the title on the the 'printable surface'] may be called Thermal

But then certain[most] Inkjet printers are strictly speaking 'Thermal'[Epson being the only exception ]

Found packs of 10 printable CD-R in W H Smiths today for £6.99 (Verbatim )if you want to buy personally rather than mail order.

I think I paid £7.99 for 50 printable DVD+R's recently - Mirror brand at a local shop (as opposed to a chain).

Shop around Nuts. I think that's a bit expensive.
