Although not at the top of its class, this free CD-label creator gets the job done. Upon launch, the attractive, tabbed interface offers you several templates for creating CD labels, jewel cases, and DVD booklets. After selecting your design, you can add any images you'd like, though the program's library of included backgrounds and pictures is extremely small. If your selected graphic doesn't fit exactly, you can simply drag it around until it reaches the desired size. When adding text, you must reposition each line by moving a small box around, as the included templates don't have predesigned entries for adding track or artist information. Also, though you can change font size and style, it's curious that you can't bold or italicize any text. Still, EZ Label Xpress Lite is totally free and doesn't disable the printing function as many competitors do, making it a quality pick for those who need to create very basic CD and DVD labels.

EZ Label Xpress is an exciting CD/DVD label and DVD-insert design and print application that allows you to make multipurpose labels in a simple way. Starting from existing label templates, it offers you the possibility of adding--in interactive ways--backgrounds, images, and text and finally printing according to various page layouts. EZ Label Xpress offers support for CD- or DVD-label printing of various shapes and sizes; it also supports CD- and DVD-case-insert printing. The designs you make also may be saved in files you can later edit or print. Designing and printing your own labels has never been so easy.
