I used duplitape once, but their CD's weren't very good quality. I've got some of Komodo's also, they weren't good either I'm sorry to say :( The CD's errored out when I tried skipping to the next track. The covers looked like they were printed on a home inkjet from both providers.
I have to say - the other option is to spend 100 quid on a printer that has a cd printing facility (there's loads of them, even in the black hole that is dixons) and then just buy printable cds. Which are cheap as hell.
It works best when you are printing a whole image on the cd rather than if you want just a name or something, as the printable cds have a matte/gloss white surface, but the results can be really professional.
I've just bought one of [url=http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/TDK-LPCW-50-THERMAL-CD-DVD-PRINTER_W0QQitemZ6795839263QQcategoryZ91358QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem][u:67ffc00d12]these things[/u:67ffc00d12][/url] from ebay for £30. Ideal for promo cds.
Hi blackdog. I'd just like to say that the CDs you have from us must be VERY old.
It's a long time since we used blue CDrs or a printer that looks anything that looks like an inkjet. (by the way, you should have told us and we would have sent you a replacement CD. you still can, what CD was it?)
Darrell uses software to check the precision of the writing to the CDrs, so I know that these days our duplication is more accurate than most.
Personally, we' d avoid any sticky labels at all. They're virtually impossible to centre, and that increases the likelihood of mistracking, puts extra strain on the servo and will increase how hard your error correction has to work. Furthermore, if you leave CDs with sticky labels in the sun or if they're left anywhere damp, the labels tend to peel off, often making the CDs unplayable.
