It’s no secret that CD & DVD users long to have professional looking labels on the movies and audio collections they create. But stickers can damage the CD or even the players should the centripetal force of spinning the disk cause it to separate. And printing directly onto a disc from your PCs printer is a patent owned by only one printer manufacturer.
So, athough Epson printer users can enjoy printing directly onto CD & DVDs, users of Canon, HP and other printers can’t enjoy the ability of putting full color designed onto the discs of their most cherished video memories or cd collections. Dymo, the company that ‘s know for those colorful strip label makers, answers the call with their Dymo DiscPainter.
Printing directly onto the disc at a resolution of 600dpi or larger, the DiscPainter can fire off a full color, professional looking CD printing in less than 3 minutes. And users don’t have to use any fancy hardware to align the CD, as the DiscPainter uses a rotary mechanism similar to a CD burner to keep the CD image perfectly in line with the printer heads.
Coming next month for about $280, the Disc Painter will include USB 2.0 cable, AC power supply, three printable discs, and a full-color ink cartridge which will print around 100 discs before being replaced to the tune of about $30.
