Hiya peeps,

i got a kinda wierd question about making cd lables, i was wandering if it was possible to just simply use a program to make one, print it out on normal paper and stick it to the CD?

Im kind of a skinflint and cant be arsed to buy cd labels so i was just wandering if normall paper would do the trick and if there was some kind of special cd adhesive to attach it?

i dont wanna go using any old glue incase it damages the CD.....

Any ideas?!

Many Thanks :)

my local computer shop sell labels for £1.50 for 100. that 1.5p each.

I wouldn't recommend what your suggesting, no, and I doubt anyone else would.

You'd run the risk of damaging whatever cd player you play the disk on. CDs and dvds spin at very very high speeds, glue and normal paper would cause an imbalance. The cd would wobble like mad, get stuck or even break in the player and perhaps take the player with it.

Ok cool Thanks :)

I Wasnt gonna even gonna try it wihout asking someone first just in case lol

£1.50 for 100?!?! geeze your getting a good deal, i can find any on the net for less then about 15-20 quid...they all seem to come with some kind of pressing device i think thats why they cost more...

I wouldn't stick any labels on at all you'll find over a period of time that they stop playing all together, I have a lot that I put labels on that a now useless, invest in printer and printable discs, a much better option

And you need a Applicator as you cannot get it central without plus once on it on for good, you cannot move without destroying the CD DVD
