CD and DVD printers are invaluable tools for businesses and individuals looking to create professional-quality optical media with custom labels and designs. These specialized printers enable you to add personalized artwork, logos, text, and graphics directly onto your CDs and DVDs, enhancing their visual appeal and branding.

CD and DVD printers come in various types, including inkjet and thermal printers, each offering unique advantages. Inkjet printers provide vibrant, full-color prints with high-resolution graphics, making them suitable for photo-quality labels. Thermal printers, on the other hand, offer durable, smudge-resistant monochrome prints, ideal for text-heavy labels.

Whether you're producing music albums, software installations, promotional materials, or archival discs, CD and DVD printers allow you to create a polished and professional finish, ensuring your media stands out and effectively conveys your message. These printers streamline the production process, making it cost-effective and efficient to produce customized optical media for a wide range of applications.

4. What operating systems do these printers support?

Windows: 7 and 10+
Mac: OS X v10.7+ (Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks, El Capitan)
Regarding Windows XP, our printer drivers will still work on it.
However, since Microsoft has ceased support for XP, we have no choice but to also no longer support XP.

5. What is the highest resolution each printer is capable of printing?

Both models can print up to 4800 dpi.

6. Do the printers come with software to design my labels?

Yes, they come with a basic design program for Windows called SureThing™ and a basic design software for Mac called DiscCover. Both programs allow you to import graphics, logos, etc. You can also design your disc layouts in a full-featured design program, save them as high-resolution .jpg, .tiff, .bmp, .png or .pdf files and use our software to arrange them onto your media size and print. Or, you can print directly from your own graphic design software, for example, Adobe Illustrator, as long as that software allows you to change the page size(s) to the size(s) of your disc.

7. Does any publishing software come with the printers?

Yes. Disc Publisher SE-3 and DP-4200 Series come with software for both Windows and Mac. The included Windows software is PTPublisher and SureThing CD Label Software. For Mac users we include PTPublisher for Mac OS X 10.7 or higher with Disc Cover design software.

8. Are your ink cartridges refillable?

No, they are not. They are designed and manufactured for one-time-only use.

9. How often do I need to change my print head?

Disc Publisher SE-3 and Disc Publisher DP-4200 Series utilize a single tri-colour ink cartridge for cyan, magenta and yellow (CMY) that combines colours to make a process black. The print head is integrated with the ink cartridge. Therefore, there is no need to ever “replace” your print head, as you get a new one with each cartridge change.
