I believe the feature I'm looking for is called a "CD tray". This enables you to print an image right on the surface of a CD or DVD (provided you use a CD or DVD with a printable surface).

It seems that these printers were popular a few years ago, but are now hard to find. I have searched B&H, and am unable to find a way to filter searches for printers with this feature. I have also exhausted my local retail sources - Best Buy, Staples, Office Max, etc. Nobody locally seems to carry printers with this feature anymore.

If anyone uses this feature on a printer and is pleased with the results, please let me know the make/model of your printer.

Thanks!


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

My all-in-one Epson Artisan 835 does CD's but I haven't used that feature, yet.


Bohdan - I may be, and probably am, completely wrong.

the US version of the canon pixma pro9000 mkII will with a bit of hacking..those sold overseas come natively with the ability. You can buy the cd tray off of ebay and find the hack online easy enough


EOS 6d, 7dMKII, Tokina 11-16, Tokina 16-28, Sigma 70-200mm F/2.8, Sigma 17-50 F/2.8, Canon 24-70mm F/2.8L, Canon 70-200 F/2.8L, Mixed Speedlites and other stuff.

When it ceases to be fun, it will be time to walk away

I picked up the Epson 835 and it does an GREAT job on CDs. Pretty much all I use it for. The software takes a little getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, piece of cake.
