Hey guys, I was hoping (after re-recording my songs) to get a cd produced this summer. I don't live off of playing music or anything, so just something to get it out there would be cool. About production though, I have 2 questions: 1 - Thermal printing: Is it worth it? I tried to find companies online that do it professionally but all I found was printer links and it looks like a lot of them go over $1k. The print that I want covers the full cd. (If it's not a reasonable amount of money then I won't bother) 2 - The silver 'professional' cds. For some reason in the cd player in my car, a CD that I bought works perfectly, loads instantly, etc. Any other burned cd either takes a long time to load the song or does not work at all and after not being able to hear my new mix I probably almost ejected the airbags a couple of times. Is it the way the music is burned (I use itunes to burn it) or is it the bottom of the cd? I have a friend who designed a hardstock sleeve for the cd to go in, which will probably look nice, keep costs down, and make me feel less obligated to do all that booklet stuff.
