If you’re tired of running sheets of labels through your inkjet printer to output colorful or graphic-rich labels for your own custom audio CDs and CD-Rs, digital media product manufacturer
Memorex Products Inc.
on Tuesday announced that it has shipped ink jet printable CD-R discs to retail stores across the United States.
The CD-Rs work in conjunction with CD-R printing-capable devices like Epson’s Stylus Photo 900, which can print directly to CD-Rs using a special pass-through mechanism. The surface of the CD-R is ready to accept ink, rather than requiring you to print out the label separately and apply it using a special labeling device.
The CD-Rs are rated at 48x and can store up to 80 minutes of audio recording or 700MB of data storage. They’re available in 30-pack spindles for a suggested retail price of US$14.99.
What’s more, Memorex and Epson have a special going through September 1, 2003 that gives buyers a $30 rebate when they purchase the Stylus Photo 900 ink jet printer and a 30-pack spindle of Memorex Ink Jet Printable CD-Rs together. The deal is available through Epson itself.
