Nero CoverDesigner lets you design and print custom labels, inlays, and booklets for CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs and cases. It also creates business cards and covers; custom labels, too. CoverDesigner comes with a wide variety of templates as well as objects, fonts, and even presets for specific paper types and other parameters. Nero CoverDesigner is fully functional freeware, but integration with Nero 12 enables extra functionality.
Well-designed: The feature-packed layout is widely customizable and borrows elements from word processors, CAD tools, and other efficient designs.
Quick start: Grids, overlays, and templates as well as preconfigured themes and text styles make for a quick start and good results with few do-overs -- though a full Help file is available, too.
Tools: Track List and Directory tools let you create attractive custom track listings and size and place them exactly. Image, Artistic Text, and other tools make embellishing covers a breeze.
Paper Stock: Perhaps the easiest way to use Nero CoverDesigner is to select your paper's specific brand, size, or number in the Paper Stock menu.
Compatibility confusion: Nero CoverDesigner can burn LightScribe and LabelFlash disc labels on compatible hardware, but only if Nero 12 is also installed. Another tool, Nero CoverDesigner Essentials, does not burn labels.
Nero CoverDesigner does a lot for a free utility. Of course, it does more if you also have Nero 12, which isn't free, and a compatible drive. For creating great-looking disc labels and more, it has you covered.
