    Good morning,

    I would love to see if people have had any luck finding anything like what I am looking for. We have decided on the DVD Folios we are using for our customers after simply printing and using jewel cases in the past, however we are still not 100% set on what DVD style to use inside the folio.

    We are considering Lightscribe...At this point, this is only a good option to us if they are silver and I am having some struggles finding the silver lightscribe discs that are supposed to exist somewhere.

    The other option I would love to have, is an eggshell white finish on a DVD-R. This seems to be unavailable anywhere I have looked, has anyone seen anything like this in the past?

    I would welcome any and all feedback!

    Warm Regards,

    I tried lightscribe but I wasn't happy printing in monochrome (and lightscribe prints very low contrast as well, making the image hard to see). I am now using CD's and DVD's that you can print directly on. They have some kind of white coating on them. I guess you need a printer that can do this, though, mine has a special tray for printing on CD's. Failing that, I'd go with printing labels.
