I think the person was asking for recommendations...
Our techies said:
They have heard that Disk Copy and Disk Doctor (in Melbourne, and possibly
elsewhere?) do reasonable jobs.
Or if you are doing a small run you might want to try the CD disk label machine
(about $15 I am told) which prints CD size images on paper (which you then cut
out) and it enables you to paste the image precisely onto the CD. (If you try
and do this manually your CD will not work too well because the CD will be out
of balance with a mis-placed image!). Apparently looks good in full colour but
not if it has just one small logo.

If this bozo had thought to check the Yellow Pages under 'CD -- Compact
Disk, Wholesalers and Manufacturers' before asking the techwhirlers to
do his job for him, he would have had the answer in two minutes.
