I posted this on the Calf as well, but I thought you guys might have some insight.
I completed a short-form marketing DVD for a business last Fall. They have yet to replicate the project for distribution. Meanwhile, I'm eager to send the DVD out as a demo and, hopefully, land future assignments.
Replication costs are generally based on the amount of discs ordered. I don't need 1000 discs, 50 will do. The per-disc cost for replicating 50 discs professionally is ridiculous. My question: Is there a reputable label software that would allow me to print passable disc labels at home? Further, I have artwork for a 5x4 paper disc sleeve. What would be the best way to create these? A print shop?
I can probably figure this out on my own, but I thought someone out there might have experience with a similar issue.
[David Roth Weiss]"Buy yourself an Epson R220 printer for $88"
David, I've had two Epson R300 printers, mainly for printing DVDs, along with several replacement DVD trays, and I've found them to be very cranky at accepting the tray. I have to "encourage" the tray to go into the printer. Is the R220 any better, or have I gotten two lemons in a row? (one more and I get a jackpot, right?)
One thing I have tried with some (limited) success is replacing the trays fairly frequently. A replacement CD tray for the Epson R300 printer is available from http://www.compassmicro.com; the product number is 1274077.
