    Sharpie. I like my handwriting, otherwise I might look for other methods.

    I use ty white inkjet hub printable 8x +R burned at 4x with DVD-Rom booktype on a lite-on burner. I use a Epson printer which prints directly on the disk. At best photo setting disks look better than origanals but require 24 hours to dry. You can find labels at covers cc or console covers. [​IMG]

    Meh, Sharpie 'n throw it in a CD Binder. Used to do the whole, label and individual case back in the Dreamcast days, but man, that becomes time consuming and takes up a lot of space.

    Besides, they're burnt. Who're you kidding?

    That's what I was planning on doing a little bit further into my game accumulation. Care to share where exactly you get your cases from?

    24 Hours? I'd opt out for B/W Lightscribe at that point.

    You use DVD covers for your cases too? If so, how do the look/fit having the "spine" of the case be only half as thick as the label intended?

    I print onto the cd with my Canon Pixma IP4300, great results!!!

    I hold backups in a plastice sleeve, cover goes in the front and disc is held on the back... all goes into a binder, HK styles!

    Exactly.

    I scribble the name on there, write down the speed and program I used to burn it and put a little "Wii" on there somewhere - just in case I forgot if it was NGC or Wii.... yeah right...

    Yeah 24 hours when set to highest photo quality setting on a Epson R800 printer...

    Blame that on the fact that I studied Photography as a Fine Art it's all about the image qualty... [​IMG]

    Personally I find if I just leave the disc for a few minutes to dry and then go around the inside and outside edge with a bit of tissue and take off the ink not on the printable surface, that is sufficient.

    I just print before I go to sleep and they are fine about the time I get home from work. If I used differant setting it wouldn't require the dry time. I thought the printer dialog was B.S. about the 24 hour warning on maxxed setting till I put one in a plastic sleeve and it left ink on it. Wouln't be too good spinning in a drive... [​IMG]

    Edit.......

    Just wanted to add the R800 uses differant ink than R200 & R300 series. I bought this printer for my Nikon D70. It's ink is not designed for quick drying it's designed for printing photos on archive quality paper that will last an estimated 100 to 200 years. [​IMG]
