    Not to be anal but about a year or so ago after starting with VCD's, I bought Amaray style cases (the nice two DVD type) , a copy of Media Face II and Click and Design 3D.

    When I make a movie, I uses CLick and Design 3D to make the labels on 2UP labels I bought on EBAY (MUCH CHEAPER THAN THE STORE - I HAVE 1000 labels for the cost of about 50 or 100).

    I use Media Face II to make the covers for the cases.

    I get the pictures from AMAZON.COM by looking up the movie, viewing the larger size POSTER and viola, I SAVE PICTURE AS....

    They Look like the originals.

    Now I do the same thing but using DVD's more than VCD's so I also have the single disk AMARAY cases.

    Note - Any of tha tstuff, cases, labels, paper, buy on EBAY, it is MUCH cheaper

    Sharpie here--that is to make the hearts and tgpo's name! Hey tgpo, you are really taking a beating, but you are a good sport. I have tried adhearing labels the disks, but like many others, have had playback problems. So, it is a sharpie for the disk, and nice color labels on glossy paper for the CD cases.

    Sharpie and Stabilo Write4All

  8. Been looking at a lot of options also.

    The current testing is with a label but not a full label but a hub only label. Looks good and does not cover any data area. Runningt test right now. A small pain to get on with the provided tool but looks good when done.

    Also did some test on rub-on letter. Quick and they do hold up.

    I create polls that the people can use.....most of the time. Almost everyone labels, so this one only made sense to be used.

    Plus I wanted to know how many people like to label with:

  12. I use Staedtler Lumocolor Pens.

    I got a pack of 5 free with my CDR drive about 18 months ago. As all I do is write the movie title, they havn't run out yet!

  13. I use some other, generic, CD labeling pen.

    I read somewhere that the Sharpie could actually damage the underlying reflective layer on some disks, have used them for years with no problem but I switched just in case. The generic one is water-based or something.

    If it hadn't been for bodymaker's photo, this would have been a truly terrible poll, IMHO

    Bic Medium Ball Point, but for some reason a lot of my movies won't play right...am I doing something wrong? Just kidding, Sharpie (registered trademark) all the way.

  17. I just write the movie name on my cd, and then CD1 or CD2.
    I use Sharpie Ultra Fine Point. Haven't had any problems yet!

    And for the cd jewel case, I use Nero Cover Designer. I just go to amazon.com and get the picture from the movie cover, and print it out and stick it in the front of the case! And I always print out a synopsis to put in the back of the jewel case, too. But, I guess this poll was about how everybody labels their disc's, not about their jewel cases. Oh well.....

    What up with all this pen nonsense? To label their DVDs/CDs, gentlemen prefer the Casio CW-50.

    No it was just the round paper disk of the top of the spindle turned upside down with the clear top disk over the top of it

    Furball, lols....... would that much ink actually have any kind of effect? I'm paranoid now... Don't usually write in a circle like that, but have been known, on discs with 60minutes or less out of 80 written, to flip them over and write stuff in the outermost 'blank' area. A friend's band who asked me to dupe up a few copies of their 28-minute punk album got some quite artsy designs!

    My discs either get a highly simplistic two or three word label (if i'm in a hurry, eg "MP3s 112") or absolutlely covered (large divx title styled after the actual movie logo, length, mb size, rez and framerate, audio quality, widescreen or not, general 'picture quality', burn speed and date; title and list of tracks for VCD/CDDA; list of artists and albums for MP3s). Used to make a lot of individually styled printed labels, but that started to take too much time, and too much design-power to make things that were uniquely recognisable. Still, they look nice and have a special place in my heart, and the plunger device makes a cool finger-toy for lazy browsing sessions

    Still take time out to make a photoquality *inlay* on the more special VCDs, to print on decent 1440dpi paper. And when I say Photo and Quality, i'm talking obsessivecompulsive perfectionist rather than the "photoquality" of a mass pirate that's got fifty more labels to brew up that day.. My VCDs come more out of rarity than piracy..

    As for pens, usually whatever's about. Voted Swan Lumocolour as that's about the closest to the 'proper' super-fine-tip "CD Pens" I use (after all they're about the same just with different packaging). Though the marker that came with the latest Memorex spindle is more like a cheap, fat-nibbed copy of a Sharpie - which for the record landed on UK shores a few weeks ago to pretty much zero interest from a public that's been using various flavours of other marker brands for years
    -= She sez there's ants in the carpet, dirty little monsters! =-
    Back after a long time away, mainly because I now need to start making up vidcapped DVDRs for work and I haven't a clue where to start any more!

  29. I use either printed stick on labels that are printed on a color laser on the Neato 2up labels or a water based permanant marker so it doesn't slowly destroy my CD/DVD like a Sharpie can... Not saying it will, but the alcohol based ink in Sharpies can damage a disc, usually those cheap ass ones.
