In the past, it was impossible to create your own CD at home. You had to go out and look for someone with enough gadgets to burn your CDs. However, as technology advances, CD making and burning is now possible in the comfort of your own home. Along with this comes the recent printing technology that even allows you to make your own CD labels. Indeed, CD label printing programs and printers are the gadgets in today’s world designed specifically to fulfill the present day CD label printing needs. There are different kinds of label printers as well as label printing programs available in the market. Some CD label programs are free. All you need to do is to download them from the Internet. Now, how do you go about making your own CD labels? Read on.
Make sure you have CD labels. Recommended CD labels include those from Neato, Avery, Memorex, and a lot more.
Know your particular needs. If you are making CD labels for personal use or needs, you can just download free programs online. But if you are going to create CD labels for professional and business use, it’s better to invest in a more elaborate CD label maker with more advanced features. A lot of different software products are available on the Web, e.g. Discus, Thurething CD DVD Labeler, Disketch, RonyaSoft CD Label Maker.
For instructional purpose, download the RonyaSoft CD DVD Label Maker from http://www.ronyasoft.com/products/cd-dvd-label-maker/. Install the software. You can either click on save or run the program. After the installation, you may now start making a CD label by clicking on “Create new CD label project.”
It’s now time to design your CD label. You can find any images related to the CD you are labeling. If you are creating film and music CDs, just find the music or film cover online and use those images as your CD image label. Do not forget to enter the information about the CD you are creating. This should include the author, the title of the CD, and the year or date the CD was created. It is also important to include a list of files or tracks on the CD.
After designing your CD label and entering the needed information, you may now print your CD label using your home printer. You will have a better and more colorful CD label if you are going to use a color printer; however, if you don’t have it, laser printers will do.
After printing the label, you may use a CD applicator or sticker to stick the CD label on the disc.
With CD and DVD label programs and printers, creating a CD or DVD label has become a breeze. Now you may easily make CDs and DVDs for data backups, family photo archives, or even for gifts for prominent events.
