Who thinks we should buy one of these:
http://www.epson.co.uk/products/inkjet_ ... o_R265.htm

... for 69.99, a colour printer that also prints directly onto cds. We can make lovely things with this machine, printing our own discs and inlays in glorious technicolour. With this, cd production will be cheap and in-house, and we can produce quantities according to demand...

this printer prints directly onto CDs...that's the whole point.
Sounds good to me - marker pens look crap and paper labels are a bastard. This is better...

We could make Cds, like forest compilations, that look at least semi-professional...

no it should be in forest records if its about burning cds (if it aint broke...). the alternative is round cd-shaped stickers: you can print them on any printer and it looks ok. think thats what we did for dont go midi

Hey I think one of these would be great but I also agree that maybe it's worth getting one a bit higher quality.
