    Other than Sharpies, Stick On Labels, and Epson printers what options do I have? Opinions, recommendations?

    Well there is always Lightscribe.
  3. There are also Epson printers that will print directly on a CD, but you have to buy special CDs and to me they look like they have labels premade onto them.

    Lightscribe is okay, but not a great option.
  4. I used the sticky labels recently for some DVDs, and the darn things wouldn't read after I affixed them. Took them off, and the DVDs worked fine again. Never had that problem on CDs, but I guess I'll stick with Sharpie's from now on.

    Stick on labels suck - they have a tendency to get stuck in slotted players. I'd go with lightscribe, although the blanks cost more.

    I use Lightscribe for special CDs/DVDs, but regular disks and a Sharpie for archival use.
