Needing Printer Guidence

Postby librum » Thu Feb 06, 2014 9:57 am

Could not really place this question in another forum.

We lost our Epson Stylus R200, with CIS and waste ink tank. Parts on order. If all goes well, we will have that one back. (fingers crossed)

We lost our Epson 837, with CIS and waste ink tank. Total. Trashed, as less than a year old, and it never did work right. Frankly, it was a POS.

We are looking at the Brother MFCJ 870, but the increased scarcity of availability of printable disks, especially the mini CDs and mini DVDs is causing us concern.

We only do four to five disks a week for our library patrons, but have over 20 different 'standardized' titles, with content always being updated, so having them printed in bulk is not reasonable.

We could do paper labels, but image-image-image...

There used to be a 'solid' ink disk printer, Rivitech I think the brand name was, which could overprint a standard disk. Can not seem to find one now, or anything like it.

Can / will someone throw us a tip if any such still exists, that will work with Acoustica CD/DVD label maker, and where to find?

Hi,

An Internet search shows that Xerox makes solid ink printers, but I don't know if any care capable of printing directly on discs.

The Brother MFCJ 870 would be a good choice for the average person.

Hi again,

Have you looked at Primera's products?

Greg,

Thank you for responding.

Yes on Primera. But their products require 'printable surface media'. They do have that 'tuff coat' type of cd/dvd, ($38/50cd)($45/50dvd)($45/25br). But no mini cd or mini dvd. They also have 'tuff coat' labels, but again not for minis. And minis are 'bread and butter'.

I will double check Xerox.

Updating, just in case someone else is going through this process.

Epson makes an ink-jet 'Discproducer' line, but high pricetag ($XXXX range), non-standard carts (no matching CIS) and apparently disabled so third partys (such as Acoustica) can not use the print function; one has to use their 'Total Disc Maker Software'. Further, no mini format is supported.
