What kind of discs can I print on with the DYMO® DiscPainter™ printer?
You can only print on discs designed for inkjet printers known as ‘inkjet-printable’ discs. Inkjet-printable discs are available as standard-sized compact discs (CDs) and digital video discs (DVDs). Inkjet-printable discs also are available as mini (80mm) CDs, and DVDs and DVRs (for camcorders). Inkjet-printable discs are available at retail stores that sell office supplies, computers, and electronics, as well as online stores. Different inkjet-printable disc finishes are available including matte white, glossy white, and silver. DiscPainter printers will print on all of these finishes and has ink density controls to optimize the results for each type of finish.
What will happen if I don’t use an inkjet-printable disc?
Inkjet-printable discs are coated with a special material to allow the ink to adhere. If you do not use discs with this special coating, the ink will pool on the disc surface and not dry. If you accidentally print on a non inkjet-printable disc, wipe the disc clean with a soft rag or tissue. The ink will not cause any damage to you. Note: Attempting to print on non inkjet-printable discs is not recommended as it can damage both the DiscPainter printer and the disc.
What are hub-printable discs?
Hub-printable discs allow you to print your design closer to the inner edge of the center hole in the disc. Non hub-printable discs have a larger unprintable area at the center of the disc - this area usually is represented by an inner plastic ring.
What is the difference between matte and glossy discs?
Inkjet matte discs have a dull, flat surface. Inkjet glossy discs have a lustrous, shiny surface, and are often described as water-resistant. Matte surfaces, by their design, provide a softened appearance, while glossy surfaces provide much sharper images.

I regret my purchase. This thing can print a decent looking disc, but I've had mixed results depending on the type of blank disc I've used. Read morePublished 24 days ago by Jonathan Gatarz
Excellent quality with the price. Only con is with the consistency, possibly it's the printer I got, but on some CDs you may see a line or two. But overall great quality.Published 10 months ago by Kevin
At one time this was a great, inexpensive disc printer. But they stopped making it several years ago. Now, you can still buy some remaining units but they will cost over $1,000!! Read morePublished 12 months ago by R. Olbrysh

as it dries up fast. Read more
The quality is very poor. The print is highly pixilated. I had one and it broke after 1 month. Dymo sent me another, and it broke a month later.Published on May 28, 2012 by John
