Talking Disk Labels...

What software / hardware do you use to label your disks.

I've always gone with the good old fashioned standard Sharpie, but I've seen some very nice adhesive labels that look very good. What are your thoughts on adhesive disk labels? Do they shed off easy? Does one kind work better than any others?

Thanks!

Re: Disk Labels...

Actually if you can find dvd or cd markers you could buy them at radio shack for about a dollar. I have heard about sharpies leaking through the layers and eating away so if you can pick up these markers.

What?! A business lying to us in order to sell a product?

I use LIGHTSCRIBE to label my disc. http://www.lightscribe.com/
Since more than one year now and I'm totally happy with it. Clean and smart and look professional.
