I need a good CD/DVD label maker that is compatible with a Mac OSX Mt. Lion. I've searched on Amazon and there does not seem to be much that people like. Hope you can give some good suggestions.

I use Toast 11 Titanium for printing in inkjet printables and for lighscribe disks. It comes with a program called Disc Cover 3 that works with Mac OSX. Here is a link to the standalone product: http://www.belightsoft.com/products/disccover/overview.php

Thanks for the information on Disc Cover 3. I went to Amazon and looked at 4 reviews and users were not too happy with Disc Cover; everyone gave it ** out of 5. I'll probably stay away from this program. Here is a link to the Amazon reviews.

I don't have the same opinion as those reviews. When I was using Windows, I just used the generic software that came with my Epson Artisan 837 printer. But switching to Mac ruined that!

I found Disc Cover 3 easy to use and works well with my printer. I print directly on the disc and not on labels.

Here is a link from epson with a few labeling programs, hopefully one of these will work for you:

I just use photoshop. It's too easy! The hardest part is creating the initial alpha-channel template - and that only takes about 15min. or so. After that just lay down the images and text, pop in the CD or DVD, and press print.

Peter,

I've been involved with BeLight's products for several years. They have an entire suite starting with Swift Publisher and other modular things like business cards, CD labels, a font transmorgifying tool, etc. I use them whenever I need a quick and dirty printed solution most commonly business cards, disk labels, flyers. (In a word when I don't want to go thru the hassle of dealing with InDesign.) I've never had any problems with Disk Cover so don't know what the Amazon reviewers are on about. You do have to match the label package to one of DC's predefined views (although you can set up one of your own without a whole lot of trouble.) I use Avery's and have had no problems on the 30-40 disks I've done.

Speaking of Avery, if you buy their product they have a web based and I think still a downloadable program that allows you to layout only for their products. I found their paper to be better than their programming so haven't looked at in a long time. Based on my experience (and the trivial price) I'd go with Disk Cover. You might consider their package deals where you can get all their programs for significantly less than buying individually. As I said, I wouldn't use it for fine art work or publishing a book or any sort of heavy lifting, but within their design parameters they've all worked well for me.

I buy printable dvd's and use a epson artisan 837 and put the disc in tray and print on it. I design it all in PS and load the final layout I to the epson disc printing software. Works great for me.

I have spent quite a bit of time researching and trying out various disk labeling methods.

By far the best I've come across (and still use) is inkjet (dedicated Artisan 50 in my case) on some Taiyo Yuden Watershields. It's like printing on luster paper.
I use the software that came with the printer, but do make my designs in PS/Illustrator

PS- for those that use the stick on labels- you really should try to get one of those out of a client's Playstation, once it's stuck itself to one of the fans. Great times for all!
