If you have music, video, data or another valuable digital file inside your hard disk that you’d like to talk about or sell, one of the most practical actions you can take is usually to burn it on the CD or DVD and make a nice cover and label for this.
The smallest amount of costly way to do this is to create your personal cover and label over a suitable graphic program for example Photoshop or maybe the free GIMP software and print them using peel and stick CD labels.
To generate the CD cover or jewel case front title cover insert, you need to create a new project together with the following dimensions: 1423 pixels X 1411 pixels. For a CD disc label you have to produce a new project with your dimensions: 1394 pixels X 1394 pixels.
Developing a CD cover is relatively fun as well as simple although you may have a little designing background. But creating the CD label is surely an entirely different matter.
First of all, you should develop a perfect circle inside 1394 pixel X 1394 pixel canvas to put your artwork on. You also should cut out areas outside this circle and that means you usually do not print on the entire canvas and so save on precious printer’s ink as you print it. Centering texts and pictures inside the circle can also prove difficult.
However the greatest difficulty comes during the printing and labeling process using the peel and stick CD label sticker. If this is the first time for it to do it, expect to have off centered labels or labels with bubbles or creases on your CDs.
An off centered label creates an unbalanced disc helping to make disc reading and writing slow. It could possibly also destroy your CD drive. Unfortunately some CD label sticker makers use adhesives that melt with a certain temperature which could lessen your drive in a gooey wreck. To prevent the latter from happening use only the company or media that your printer’s manufacturer recommends.
Now do not let this stuff discourage you. With constant practice and tinkering with your graphics program, you’d soon be on your way to making your personal art pieces on CDs in this way.
But what in order to create more professional-looking CD products and much more easily? You can get a printer using a CD Tray. A printer with a CD tray often be more expensive than the usual printer without them.
If you really should produce good CD products, it should be worth neglect the. Incidentally, a printer built with CD tray often has a software that eradicates the hassle of cutting out other places outside of the disc design, and more importantly, require while using problematic peel and stick CD label stickers since printable CD-Rs are the printable media used with these printers.
