DiscLabel allows you to create your own custom CD and DVD graphics, labels, case inserts, and more, all through a convenient interface. This program offers all kinds of options and tools, making it possible to create just about any design you can imagine for your discs.
Multiple formats: You can easily create a label or case insert with the list of layout options along the left-hand side of the screen. Possibilities include case covers, designs for the spine of the case, and those for the face of the disc, itself. You can create designs for multiple pieces simultaneously and switch back and forth between them at any time while you're working.
Feature-packed: There are almost no limits to the designs you can create with the tools in this program. From lines and shadow boxes to shading and clip art, you have everything at your disposal that you'll need to make your disc covers your own. There are also templates you can use to get you started, or you can create a unique design completely from scratch.
Time to learn: The only real drawback to this program is that it offers so much that it can be a bit overwhelming to learn to use. The tutorial video does a good job of providing an overview of what kinds of things the program can do, and it also gives you an idea of where to find different kinds of tools. But the only way you're really going to get good at using this program is to play with it on your own.
DiscLabel offers a ton of great features to allow you to create beautiful custom disc case designs. While it may take a while to learn, the investment is worth it, if you find yourself doing this type of work frequently. The program is free to try, and the full version costs $35.95.
