- DYMO DiscPainter
DYMO DiscPainter is a CD and DVD printer that prints a user's image or text of choice directly onto the disc, eliminating the need for labels.
The device prints directly onto spinning CD's or DVD's in 60 seconds for a 600dpi image. For a 1200dpi image the print time is reportedly about 3 minutes.
DiscPainter is manufactured by DYMO, a company that specializes in label-making devices.
According to the New York Times, the printer is small, silent and easy to use. They note however that the DiscPainter only works with inkjet-printable discs which are a few dollars more expensive than regular discs.
The inkjet printer is useful to individuals in creative industries like designers, photographers, and artists who need to produce visually compelling discs.
