Let us know how your label turns out. I have avoided light-scribe
media because of the higher media cost, the limited contrast range of
the label, and that writing the label takes more time than the data. I
use printable media instead. Advantages: The label supports color,
added protection for the data layer due to printable surface, takes
less than a minute to print the label, and the media costs just a bit
more than regular discs.
