I have a Primera Bravo II duplicator and printer -- it does runs of 50 discs
at a time.  The ink does get expensive (the Epson is better -- reviews
suggest that it's pretty frugal with ink).

Another option would be to buy pre-printed blank media -- blank DVD-R's with
the LO label pre-screened on them.   The advantage is that you get pro
results, for about a dollar per blank disc, and you can always make small
DVD runs with latest ISO or custom package (so you're not tied to whatever
version was available for the replication run).  I've done this for
multi-episode shows, where we needed fast turnaround.  We made sure the
label was generic and evergreen, and then handwrote the show specifics in a
blank area.   For LO, you'd just want a small area to note run date and
package version.

I modified the NA label so it would work with Lightscribe.

I did this since it may be better, for the short term, to use Lighscribe
DVDs for burning NA Community Project DVDs for handouts to businesses.
The only problem with this method is it takes about 20 minutes to burn
the label design onto the disc surface, using the "best" option.

The lettering below the logo had to be moved up since it would be cut
off by the way Lightscribe labels are formatted. The hole in the middle
is larger than a paper label.

Hopefully I will be able to borrow an inkjet printer that prints
directly to the disc's surface. That would be nice, since it would make
a good looking colored label, while Lightscribe is a B&W only and does
not like "grayscale" images.

Thanks for this Tim. BTW ... if you buy green Lightscribe disks it should
look a little better.

 do you have a place that sells green LightScribe media?  I have about 5
DVDs left, so I would need to buy more soon if I continue using them.

 I also agree with the comment that "lightscribed" discs tend to look
amateurish. However, from an amateurish point of view, they may look more
professional which may be fine for passing it on to new members.

 For me, paper labels are worse than LightScribe labels.  Also they tend
to bubble up in humid conditions, for some reason.  So the only option is to
use direct printing to printable media.  I hope to be able to buy one in a
few months.  Then I will be set.  The media does not cost too much more,
until you add the shipping.  Maybe I will find some local business that
still sells them in 25 or 50 packs.  I buy "normal" DVDs and CDs in the

Actually, if I knew that I would not have any expenses, except for food,
this month, I could buy it now.  The printer have 5 color cartridges and the
black.  Be cheaper than using a tri-color printer.

 Still a nice offering for our toolkit of items available to our members.
