Glossy CD-Rs (CD-R Direct Print)

  wallbash 18:21 07 Jan 2005

Have a canon i865 printer, which has the ability to print directly onto suitable discs.
Have successfully used the standard white matt printable discs, but is it possible to use/obtain glossy white discs. ( for those special disc's)

You can get a gloss spray-on varnish from places like SVP.

As well as giving a gloss finish, it also protects the print surface and makes it water resistant.

Anf for those black/colour on silver, I wonder if this click here is worth a thought. I realise it would need a steady hand to cut round the circle but....

qoute ...steady hand to cut round the circle

not something that I am very good at!!

Looks like a glossy , pre-installed disc is nor readily available, Gap in the market!!

What about printing the label, cut it out as a square, stick on CD, turn CD upside down and with a sharp Stanley knife carefully follow round the disc. Elastoplas is not too expensive. ;-/

Some times the advice here needs to be taken with a large dose of humour !

Think will stick , with sticking glossy labels on to my discs

But still think there would be a market for them!

My suggestion was offered with all seriousness.

With the high rotational speeds of discs these days there are good reasons not to apply sticky labels to them. Even a slight off centre application of the label can cause the disc to be unbalanced when rotating which, at high speed can cause the disc to shatter in extreme circumstances.
