Dymo Discpainter

31 07 2008

OK….I STILL love my lightscribe disk printer. It’s great and, best of all, it’s free.

Sometimes, however, I want to colour print my disks. Well I have found a little gizmo that does just that. It’s the Dymo Discpainter. It prints the label, in colour, directly on the disc. It’s great, it wasn’t overly expensive and I simply adore it!

Put full-disk, full-color images and titles on your recordable discs with the easy-to-use Dymo DiscPainter. It’s fast, too, able to print a full disc in 600dpi in about one minute. How simple is it to use? Just close the lid and print… no labels to line up or hard-to-use trays. The Dymo Discus software includes ready-made canvases and a photo collage tool. Includes one ink cartridge (good for about 100 prints), sample media, USB cable, AC adapter and software on CD-ROM. Requires inkjet-printable recordable discs and either Microsoft Windows XP or MacOS 10.3+.

9 05 2008

I needed a new printer. No, this time I really did. The old one died (as opposed to running out of ink). I decided to go wireless AND get an all in one deal. I looked around and finally found a good one that wasn’t expensive and it was even made by an old friend: Lexmark. I’ve always had really good luck luck with their products and tend to recommend them over others.

I love being wireless. I can work away on the porch and the family can suddenly be surprised because the printer starts printer my latest masterpiece.

Lite-On 20x Super All Write LightScribe Internal DVD/Dual Layer RW Drive

9 02 2008


I recently upgraded my desktop dvd drive to one with Lightscribe. I had seen the information on it and how the disks looked and wanted to try it myself. I love this! The disks look 1000% better done with lightscribe than with the old paper sticky labels. The only way to improve on this is for them to be able to print in full colour. But for most printing, that isn’t necessary. I have no complaints.
To print a lightscribe disk, you burn the data to the disk in the normal way. The you remove the disk, turn it over and put it back into the drive for the printing. 15-20 minutes later you have a disk like the one pictured. The disks are priced right in line with other blank cd and dvd disks.
