An excellent way to make personal CDs and DVDs is by printing a design onto inkjet printable discs using CD/DVD printers. Instead of writing on discs or using messy labels, you can print a design onto printable disks. These are great if you are burning CDs and want to put the album design on the disk, making it easily identifiable. You can print a design and a title onto a disk of family photographs so you know precisely what is on it, or if you are a budding musician, you can give your home recorded CD a professional touch. Other CD/DVD printers allow you to print photographs directly from a CD/DVD.
Either for home or professional use, the size, capacity and speed vary considerably.
