You'll want to distinguish between printers that can print labels (pretty much any printer can do this if you feed it the right label paper) and printers that can print directly on special printable CD/DVDs.

For the latter, try googling eg. CD inkjet printer

If you print labels, you'll need to be careful adhering them to the disc so that they're correctly centered and so on. There are products to help with this. Neat-O is one, I think.

But you shouldn't use labeled discs in any system where you push the disc into a slot (most car audio systems, Mac computers, for example). The extra thickness of the label is liable to cause the disc to jam. People will not show you the love you deserve if your CDs ruin their car CD player. Had it happen to me once and was *not* a happy camper.
