    Did anyone do a CD as a favor?
    If so, do you have a template of the Label?

    I really want to do this and want to make the labels on my own just
    don't know where to start and I am thinking that a template will help!

    Thanks.

      any time I need a template, I go to Avery.com - they haven't let me down yet! try this ... (they also have the jewel case and other labels)

      I haven't made a CD label in awhile, but back when I used to (pre Ipod), I would buy the sticker paper and it would come with instructions on how to download the template. And then I had a plastic thing-a-ma-jig which I would put the sticker on, and the CD on and then smoosh. It made sure the label went on perfectly everytime. Basically it's this thing...

          We're doing CD's, but my FI has a CD burner that has Lightscribe - basically it engraves the CD's. I think most of the new HP computers come with it standard, so if you know someone with an HP, they might have it. We bought CD's in red and blue (our colors are red and aqua) and inscribed a cool Jamaican cartoony pic onto the CD's with our wedding date. I love them! I'll take a pic later and post for you...

            Yes, just go to Office Max/Depot, buy the round CD label stickers and there will be instructions on the box. I just made some recently.

                  Sorry I haven't gotten the camera out... I will do this in the next day or so to show you what they look like. I love them! They take a little while to do, but they look great :) I think you can buy the Lightscribe CD burners, but I have no idea how much they cost...

                    You can buy one the CD engravers separately. I think they are like $50-80 depending on what type you buy. I just seen them somewhere, but of course can't think of where at the moment. My friend did CD favors. I'll have to take a picture of it to post. They got those clim cd cases and just printed out a label with the songs on the back of the case. On the CD itself it said Songs we love, their names and wedding date with a picture. That showed through the clear front. It was really cute. She gift wrapped them all in brown wrapping paper with a bow and had them in a basket where the name cards were.
