    Which CD/DVD/BD label and cover making software do you prefer (OTHER THAN RonyaSoft)? I make my own labels and covers and I just need something to properly scale and print them.

    Thanks for reading!

    (My apologies if this is the wrong forum.)

    Look up CD/DVD labels and you'll numerous posts about how they cause playback errors that may not show up years later due to warping of the discs. Remove the labels and they usually play fine. Either use a Sharpie or get a disc printer and printable surface discs.

    Acoustica CD DVD Label Maker seemed like a good product when I tried it a few years ago. Acoustica CD DVD Label Maker can print directly on discs with a printable surface if the printer includes that feature. It isn't free but it isn't expensive either and has a free trial.

    Unless I'm missing something, it doesn't seem that Acaustica or SureThing offer DVD and BD cover printing. I'll keep shopping around, and I welcome more replies!

    By "cover" do you mean a slipcase or do you mean the paper inserts used for labeling cases and jewel boxes? The Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker Features list says "Design and print jewel cases, DVD cases, and Blu-ray cases."

    Acoustica:

    Printing

    Print directly on CD surfaces using more than 100 supported printer models from Epson, HP, Canon, and more
    Use Light Scribe to etch labels directly onto your CD or DVD surface using your drive's laser (requires LightScribe drive and disc)
    Print multiple LightScribe discs simultaneously - limited only by the number of LightScribe drives you've got attached to your computer
    Design and print jewel cases, DVD cases, and blu-ray cases
    Hundreds of brands and models of paper labels and insert papers supported
    Printer alignment wizard allows automatic compensation for out-of-alignment printers; alignment can also be adjusted for individual paper types
    Support for designing and printing all the miscellaneous spines & labels that get added to the corners of disc label papers
    Optionally print borders or fold lines for inserts
    Optionally fade the edges when printing on printable discs so that if your printer lacks perfect alignment, white edges around the disc look more natural
    Automatic extra bleeding on paper labels and inserts to help compensate for wonky printer alignments
    Real-time preview of all Light Scribe disc colors; no need to launch a print-preview dialog to see how your Light Scribe disc will look when you print it
    Change your target paper type, disc template, etc. at any time - no need to lock in an output target when you create your project; you can design your CD label for, say,
    Neato paper, then decide to print it instead on Memorex paper, a printable disc, etc.


    I've printed DVD/BD case inserts many times in the past. And as has been said.... sticky back labels are not recommended, they just don't aren't worth the effort. I found this out the hard way as most people have over the years.

    Indeed. Good point. Usually, if I apply a label to a burned disc, it's more of a show and tell kind of thing. I keep the labeled disc in the case, and actually keep a copy in the clip with no label in a paper sleeve for actual playing. Looks like I have more research to do about these different apps. Thanks everyone for the replies. Please keep the suggestions coming in so I have something to research!
