How to Copy Disc Artwork Using Direct to Disc CD DVD Printing with the Epson Artisan 710

Today we’re going to highlight one of the
key features of the Epson Artisan 710, which is not only a plain paper printer and a photo
printer, but also is a printer that is able to print on inkjet media. The feature we’re
going to highlight today is called direct-to-disc printing. The feature utilizes the Artisan
710’s scanner bed. We’re going to take a copy of our master disc, put it on the scanner
bed face-down, close the scanner bed. You follow the steps on the LCD screen here for
the direct-to-disc printing. It’s very simple, Epson’s made it very simple. At this point
you’d be able to adjust the inner and outer diameter of the disc using the directional
keys depending on which type of blank media you are using. Then press ‘OK.’ At this point
we are going to print on a CD/DVD, and then press ‘OK.’ It’s asking me to now put a blank
disc into the front-loaded tray. And now, it’s asking me to press the CD tray button.
In order to proceed, click on ‘OK.’ Then at this point, press Start. [printer noises]
And out of the front of the tray will come our finished disc. We can compare it now with
our original. Very simple, very easy to use: the Epson Artisan 710.

    i went and bought it but cant get it to print like the original cd, instead i keep getting a smaller version of its picture. I allready selected outer 120mm and inner 20mm, but all i get is is a 50% smaller picture. I selected standard and standard I get even worse smaller bracelet like picture. any advise?

    One question. CAn this Printer print on CD's with Maximum DPI? My current HP 5460 only uses 600×600 DPI on maximum settings for Disc printing even though, the printer can use 9600x2400dpi

  4. dharkbizkit says:

    @cdrom2go Well then I ask it another way. Is the CD print in almost the same quality as a normal paper picture print. Just want to know if the "printing grid" is fine, or visable. would you say it's a high quality print or mere a dotted low quality print? Iam looking for somethign that gives kinda same quality on CD like the Canon pixma 4500/4600 series

  5. dharkbizkit says:

    @cdrom2go thanks a lot 🙂 btw, can you recommand some full-face printable dvds? should be DL but not necesseracly and should have glossy kinda surface

  6. dharkbizkit says:

    @cdrom2go thanks for the advice! Taiyo Yuden seems to be quiet the underdog here in germany… but at least they are avaidable. I used Verbatim before, but the surface is very very sensetiv about fingerprints.
    so then, next time taiyo yuden it is, ill give'em a try

    My CD tray doesn't go out all the way like that. Should I pull it out more or could it be a mistake? I can still put the disc inside but I'd have to touch the bottom to take it out which I don't really want to do…

  8. estrellaproductions says:

    Nevermind, I didn't pull up the LCD/button panel, haha!

  9. JKIProductionz says:

    Inkjet ink smears – what I did is bought a spray can of clear coat from the craft store, set up discs about 20 at a time on some cardboard and gave it a light coat of the sealant so it doesn't smear.
