1. I'm surprised noone (unless I missed it) has mentioned yet that on CD's
that aren't filled to capacity, there's no data around the outermost rim of
the CD. The data tracks are written starting with theinnermost (closest to
center) ones. On most cd-r dyes, it is pretty easy to spot visually where
the data actually ends. That should tell you which area is safe to write on
- unless one makes a point of filling each cd with something to full
capacity, chances are there will be adequate if not abundant space to label
the contents. TDK evidently encourages such an approach; their CDs' writable
surface has a pattern guiding one to write along the outer edge.

2. How about inkjet-printable CD's (and DVD's)? They are more expensive, but
the results, for when it matters, leave other options behind as far as
appearance, physical integrity, reflective layer protection.

Trouble is, while Epson does outfit its photo printers with a special front
CD tray and optical alignment sensor to make printing directly on CD's easy,
such capability has been removd from the US versions of same / similar
printers for a few generations now.

There are, however, companies that would buy Japanese market products and
sell them here.
