A device used to print labels on CD-R discs. Using inkjet or thermal printing technology, only printable CD-R media can be used. Label printing is often incorporated into CD duplicators that clean the media, record the data and print the label automatically. CD label printers also print on printable DVD-R media and may be advertised as CD/DVD printers. See CD duplicator
CD/DVD label printers provide a feed mechanism specialized for disc media and often use inkjet technology, such as this Print Factory model from Microboards Technology (www.microboards.com).
