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!

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

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.
