Default DVD/CD Labels

Don’t the paper labels for DVD/CD discs actually look tacky?? Professionally made software discs seem to be printed or painted or something right on the disc. I’ve also seen what seems to be a mix of direct print and specially cut small paper, partial labels.

I like the idea of small paper, partial labels, which would also be less expensive, and I think they have a nicer appearance. But an address or envelope label on a disc can look tacky too. So I guess it needs a special angle cut or something. Then, there are the clear plastic (or at least transparent) labels, that make the print look like it’s right on the paper – I guess that would work for a disc.

I have all these back-up and research discs. I put each one of them in a plastic case with an identifying case label. Then, the discs get mixed up with the cases and I never know where what I have is. I should put on a little sticky label, and then, I could even put the discs in a cloth carrying case for multiple discs. If the disc has a key number, I could also put that on the label.

So the laser light reads right through the print or paper on the disc. At first, I thought the drive read the bottom of the disc. I guess it’s just penetrating light.
