Labels that will go through a laser printer do exist.  They are a pain to
apply.  They also add weight to the disc, which concerns me performance
wise.  (I would think it would slow down the drive and make the read
timings more difficult.)  With CDs, I would not use anything with glue or
solvent on the top.  To many are made with the foil media covered by
paint, not plastic, on the top of the disc.  I have seen foil removed by a
post-it note applied to a cheap CD.
