CD Labels - Don't Do It!

Most of you probably already know this but I thought I'd post it anyway. For the last few years, we've been putting labels on the blank CDs that we burn for our doctors. It helps us keep track of who gets a CD, and confirms whether it's been burned or not. I would guess that we had a 10-20% failure rate on our burns, which I attributed to the disks we were using. On the advice of Rocky Mountain Oral X-ray, we ordered 1000 custom printed disks on which we WRITE the patient name & date in felt pen. Much to my amazement, our burn failure rate has dropped to less than 1%. The moral of the story is - don't put labels on your disks!

Another approach is to design a full face label with your graphics and insert a text field for patient info. It's a nice presentaion and it doesn't peel off like a regular label (especially thermal)

You're right Matt!
we also have custom printed disks, the burn failure rate is nearly 0%
