Printable DVD label for Microsoft Streets and Trips 2011
Jim M.
I downloaded the trial version of Microsoft Streets and Trips 2011, and burned it to a disc. Since I didn't buy the full version that includes the DVD, is there any place where I can download the label for the DVD? I have labels and label printing software. All I need is an image of the label to print. It looks sorta tacky to print my own cobbled-up label!

Lots of S&T images at Google Images:

Paper labels on DVDs are tacky anyway. And they can peel and gum up your DVD unit, especially the laptop ones.

t923347, thanks for the fast reply. I looked at all of the images on the link you provided, and I have also done a Google search without finding a disc label.

I haven't used paper labels in years. The Epson RX-580 printer I have will print directly to a disc. You just have to buy printable discs. You just have to burn the disc prior to burning. After burning, the drive can't write to it for some reason.

Reply to Jim M. Here's a site you can look at. They're all older versions. Maybe you could use them with some graphics editing. I thought the 2007 Streets And Trips Custom was neat. Anyway...it's an option.

Interesting! That 2006 one is pretty easy to update and is a nice label. I wonder if it is the right size.

Thanks, Edski. That's exactly what I was looking for, except for 2011, of course. As you noted, that site doesn't have anything newer than 2007.

I'm still in my 60 day trial period and haven't bought a product key yet. I just wanted a neater way to label my DVD from the download.

Now that the programs are showing up in stores, I might buy one there, instead of just buying a product key. That way, in addition to the DVD, I can get a new GPS receiver for approximately $25 more than the program alone. My receiver is the older Microsoft (up to 2009), and I am interested in trying the newer version.

tcassidy, that modified label worked perfectly! It is a nice label, and looks great. My CD/DVD label printing software scaled and positioned it perfectly to print the label, and it is now on my downloaded disc.

Thanks very much for the help. Also, I suppose many other readers here will want to use this label.

I'm glad it worked out ok for you. 5 minutes in Corel PHOTOPAINT©. Fortunately the font was simple!

In case anyone wants to check out the printer I have at home, which is an all-in-one inkjet, but also prints labels direct to the disc, here's the link:

malaki86, thanks for the information on your printer. I notice that your particular model has been discontinued, but Epson lists several replacement printers with the same feature. More (currently sold) Epson printers that will print directly to CD/DVD discs:

Direct CD/DVD Printing - Print Labels Directly on Blank Discs with Epson Printers - Epson America, Inc.

Note that these printers may require a separate disc tray which can apparently be added after you have purchased the printer. I’m not trying to sell Epson printers. I just looked there because of malaki86's information. I suppose that other makers also make printers that will print directly to discs.

I didn’t respond directly to the printer recommendation and paper label comments earlier because I didn’t want to sidetrack the discussion about the label image. But all of the comments about printing directly on a disc are well-taken. I have a LightScribe burner that will also print labels directly on discs, but that also requires special media. The LightScribe prints only in black and white, although discs with a color background have recently become available.

Both of those solutions (like paper labels) still require an image to print or burn. tcassidy’s image works for me, and that is the one I have already printed and will use until I get a store version of the program with a DVD and a new model GPS receiver. However, if any one else has an image that he thinks is also interesting, I suggest that those be posted here, as tcassidy did.

The more choices, the better!

Thanks to Marvin for moving this to a separate thread.
