    Hub labels?


    by gralfus ·

    I have tried CD/DVD hub labels in the past, but quit because I couldn’t find a way to get them on consistently straight.

    Do any of you who use them have a good method?

      Have you considered using printable disks?

        Print on the hub?

        If they are printable on the hub, I might consider it. But that would mean investing in a new printer, and foregoing all the CDs I already have purchased.

          a printer that prints right on the CD.

          Don’t need a special CD that I know of.

          Yes, for the body of the CD

          The CD printers that I have seen work on the body of the CD, not the hub. The point of hub labels is that they use the typically unclaimed center ring that is usually transparent.

      Try the CD Stomper, by Avery. I think I got it on sale at Micro Center for about $10. These are easy to use, and the result is usually within about 1/64″ of dead center.

        I found that the diameter of the stomper spindle (the nubbin at the top) was a lot smaller than the inner diameter of the hub label, thus leading to a significant amount of slack. Maybe it is the brand of label I was using.

          Get the ones specifically made for it. Not only do they fit very well, they also have tear-off “handles” that make alignment fairly easy. (I don’t want to curse you, by saying “can’t miss”:-).
