While we're on the subject of where to get things......Where can I buy CD-R's that are plain on the front, like the back? No company logo or anything. I am also looking for the best program to buy for the computer to make my own artwork. Any suggestions there too?

 

Thanks!

This is not an easy question to address:

 

In my opinion the best software is Adobe Photoshop + Illustrator.

You can get only photoshop if planing to scan and print existing artwork. But if you really want to create your own artwork, you really will need vector-based software too (Illustrator, corel-draw, etc.)

 

The more important question would be how you plan on doing it: are you going to invest some money in decent inkjet printer which can print directly onto the CD-R, or will settle for peel-and-stick paper labels that could be printed on any regular inkjet... there are so many different options and possibilities you can invest weeks in researching with no end :).

Well, I am able to download all of the artwork, so I won't need to scan anything. I just need a good program that lets me paste it evenly. Also, one problem I have had in the past is buying a program that includes the photo paper with the lines and stiff already there for the back insert, but when I run out of paper I can't find anymore to buy without buying the program again:(

 

I am looking for the cd-r's that are completely plain on the front so I won't have to mess with labels.

 

Thanks

Bags Unlimited have unbranded CDrs, but I think in general, un-branded ones are of lower quality... I've never ordered CDrs from Bags Unlimited, so I don't know, for sure. I'm pretty sure I've seen "plain" CDrs at Comp-USA as well, and they were dirt cheap (so I assume not the greatest quality), but they do look cool.

 

I like my SureThing labeler, although it takes some adjusting to get the artwork "perfectly" adjusted. It has templates for virtually every brand of paper/labels, and you can re-buy labels/paper stock as well on-line or like at Staples or whatever:

Several questions to be answered...

 

1. Sorry Curtis, but the fact that media is unbranded has absolutely NO correlation to quality. If you do your research properly, unbranded media is just as good as name brand, but usually at a much lower cost. Unbranded CDR and DVDR media can be purchased in spindles of 100 from the following vendors (all of whom I've personally used in the past):

 

http://www.meritline.com

http://www.rima.com

http://www.supermediastore.com

http://www.americal.com

http://www.cdrom2go.com

 

As to which unbranded media to buy, there are many options, and the choice depends on your purpose. I use a Primera Inscripta thermal CD printer, so I have to buy compatible media. If you have a Signature CD inkjet printer, then there are specific types of media you have to use with it. If you're not planning to do any on-disc printing, then pretty much anything will work - make sure the media is certified for the burning speed you plan to use. I've always liked the "diamond" bottom discs, meaning silver bottom, since they look less like a CDR.

 

I avoid labels like the plague -- over time they can peel/flake off and potentially ruin the player they are in when it happens. IMO, using a fine-tipped Sharpie to hand label the CDR is preferable to a stick-on label.

 

2. Artwork templates. I use Adobe PageMaker, since I have templates for front/back artwork that I made up long ago, but Illustrator, InDesign, QuarkXpress, Freehand, any one will do.

 

You can download templates for a zillion different CD and DVD booklets, digipaks, cases, and labels from http://www.discmakers.com/templates/music/index.asp . You have to register to gain acess, but they are free. They also have a font for both PC and Mac that has some of the industry logos (Dolby, DVD Audio, DDD, ADD, etc.) that you can download and install.

 

HTH...

Cool... I've only heard complaints about the ones from CompUsa, but I have no idea.... Of course, I've had prob's with branded ones, too, so, nothing's a guarantee of quality.

You can get those real nice Jap mylar sleeves from Sound Source in Los Angeles.......I've been buying them for years and they are the high quality ones that have the adhesive on the main section, not on the flap as the cheapies do.

 

You can give them a ring at 877-465-1285 toll free or they have a web page at

 

www.SoundSourceCDs.com

 

They take mastercard, visa and paypal as well......

 

Now, for those 74MB Mitsui unbranded CDRs.......that's the silver discs with nothing on the label that someone asked about. Check around and you'll find that the Mitsui silver 74 mb discs are the premium......least amount of errors, stable and one of the most compatible with different players. A good place to see actual tests is media sciences web page....that's their business, evaluating recording media.

 

Anyway, Contact Richard Grant at Disk-O-Tape, Inc. in Cleveland, Ohio.....for the Mitsui CDRs.....he's a great guy and will work with you. Tell him I sent yah!

 

Toll free at 800-932-8273 they also have a web page at:

 

www.disk-o-tape.com

 

I buy them in the 100 lot without jewel cases and their shipping is by UPS and really quick. Visa and Mastercard accepted there as well......

 

 

Hope this helps,

Delbert

    • New song 'Irreversible'. From Frontiers: 'Irreversible' is a new single from Norway's Big City. The track is from the recording sessions for their most recent studio album, "Testify X", which is out now. Fans of bands such as Firewind, Queensryche, Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall, Europe, Fair Warning, and the like should look forward to being introduced to this exciting band.    
    • Yeah mate, that's definitely them through and through. Maybe slightly "ballsier" in recent years, but if you dig that you'll dig their gear. 
    • I was meant to see Crazy Lixx too, and it turned into a massive fuck-around. They didn't end up coming to Australia after a massive failed festival event. I think they were still headed here, but it was right at the start of covid and I think that may have been a factor in them cancelling too. Pretty devastating at the time, but thankfully Reckless Love had more testicular fortitude and that was one of, if not my favourite (and as fate would have it, last) concert outing so far. 
    • Just heard that 'We unite' song. Not into it, but hoping there's better to come as I like the vocals (of course) and it's a good ballsy sound. Just a terrible chorus. 
    • I've just revisited the original and as worthy as the above cover is, the original is perfection.     
    • HOLY FUCKING FUCK OF A FUCK!!! One of my favourite songs ever! How did I not know of this KILLER cover!?  I'm not familiar with the album either, I'll have to check it out.    
    • Yeah I'm not completely sold on Brand either. He is very intelligent, switched on and an excellent speaker, but I don't connect as much with him as I do others. Watch him every now and then but not subscribed as I'm not overly interested in a lot of his videos. 
    • Russell Brand goes on a bit too much about spirituality most of the time for me, and he is very slow to get to the point, compared to someone like, say the awesome Jordan Peterson. I remember when I first saw the Sarah Silverman was dong video blogs, because I thought she was pretty great and funny. And then I saw some, and now I hate her. I hate pretty much everything she says, and I even find it hard watching her movies lol
    • Randy Piper's Animal - Judgement Day. Killer track unfortunately not on youtube.  The start of the chorus says it all.   "I'm here to tell you I'm watching you, I'm watching everything you do, GOD knows, 'cause he asked me to".   Job gets it.
    • haha, just what this place has been missing. A religious thread. I don't believe in any higher power, just like I don't believe in ghosts or aliens. Show me one and I will believe, until then.... As far as mainstream religions go, they are all equally silly to me. Defining a 'god' or 'gods' and creating images on them, and worshipping them? Really? Just because you don't know? Christianity is ridiculed in Australia, because like it or not we are a Christian society. Want proof? attend parliament, and they say the lord's prayer before every sitting. Having travelled extensively around the world, I will say that Catholicism is the worst of them all. Money hungry, money grabbing religion that it. Asian religions and much more realistic. Anyway here's the thing. I DON'T KNOW I don't know how we got here. I know how we evolved. But I don't know where our consciousness came from, and I don't know where it goes, if anywhere. And I don't care, because I can't change it anyway. For me life is more about being a good person, doing right by others and living a happy life. I've said for years, the secret to life is in two parts. Stay healthy and he happy. That's it. Worship whomever you like. Doesn't affect me. You guys create some great temples and churches and I enjoy visiting them. Interestingly, even 10 or 15 years ago, not many dared to come out and admit they had no faith. These days, this is common, but rare for people to come out and say they are Christian, or whatever. Jesus was real. His life is fairly well documented. Was he the son of a god? lol If anything he was a magician of sorts. Probably a decent bloke though. Scariest thing I've seen recently was the NY mayor talking about covid and how god has chosen it and people should get immunised to serve god or whatever. Damn, I would HATE to live in a bible belt of the US. Hell, people in my country don't ever really get a flag out except for one day a year that everyone hates because it's now all about invasion etc. I've been through the US and was amazed at the amount of flags on front lawns, letterboxes, and everywhen. You guys care about your country far more than us
