Greetings from Utah,
I need some good feedback on the best/fastest/most reliable way to label CDs and DVDs in a low-volume environment.
Management here is interested in Lightscribe.  I've seen a few samples and they remind me of really old tattoos.  It looks like you can't do color, only various shades of the disk background color and basic black.  For example, If you've got a red disk, your label could be various shades of red with black text.
The stories I hear about stick-on labels are that they peel off and induce sometime fatal imbalances as the disk spins at 10,000 rpm. (Fatal imbalances in the disk or in the drive, not fatal imbalances in the user.)
Please reply to me with your wisdom and I will summarize for the list.
