The bachelorette get psyched mix

A few weeks ago, I was offered the chance to temporarily try out a review copy of the DYMO DiscPainter ($279), which prints photos and text directly onto discs, printing while it spins around in the device. Years ago I had bought a cheap CD label stomper that printed labels that would stick on top of my discs, but they ended up ruining them and looking kind of cheesy. I've also ruined plenty of mixes using the wrong marker to write on them. But the DYMO printer, makes really professional images that are very glossy, especially perfect for musicians or filmmakers making their own CDs and DVDs on a regular basis.

Personally, I used the DiscPainter to make several "get psyched" mixes as favors for my bachelorette party attendees. We all listened to it on the party bus to and from the casino and danced along the way. Each disc took about two to three minutes to print and despite all the color that I used in my chosen design, they were dry almost instantly.

Below is the design I made using their accompanying software, fun no?

Here's the track list (It wasn't easy narrowing it down):

1. You Give Love a Bad Name - Bon Jovi

2. Hot Child In the City - Nick Gilder

3. Hollaback Girl - Gwen Stefani

4. Gold Digger - (Featuring Jamie Foxx) Kanye West

5. Smack That - Akon

6. Party Like a Rock Star - Shop Boyz

7. London Bridge - Fergie

8. Don't Stop the Music - Rihanna

9. Murder On the Dancefloor - Sophie Ellis Bextor

10. Umbrella - Rihanna

11. Don't Cha - The Pussycat Dolls

12. Lost in Emotion - Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam

13. Ain't Nobody - Diana King

14. Nobody's Supposed to Be Here (Dance Mix) - Deborah Cox

15. Sinnerman - Nina Simone & Felix Da Housecat

16. The Warrior - Scandal

17. Right Back Where We Started From - Maxine Nightingale

18. Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond

19. September - Earth Wind & Fire

I only wish I made a copy for myself.

  1. I'm so glad to see a Bon Jovi song on there! :-) I really love that band...I was so sad they didn't tour in Seattle this year!

    The CD looks really great - very fitting for a bachlorette party!

  3. I can't believe you didn't make one for yourself. I made a bachelorette mix for one of my friend's parties. And I used the cheesy labels. This looks much more professional;)
