The printing process used in commercial DVD covers cannot be imitated by the usual SOHO inkjet or laser type printers.

To get a cover that is as good, and possibly higher, quality than commercial covers try using a light weight inkjet photo paper (in an inkjet printer, of course).

i thought lasr printers were better quality printers....????

Note I wrote "inkjet photo paper (in an inkjet printer, of course)". Putting inkjet photo paper into a laser printer will most likely result in a very large outlay of money to repair/replace the printer.

If you can get lightweight laser photo paper, by all means use it.

I don't agree that low cost laser printers are necessarily better quality than inkjets for printing in colour.

One can smell all one wants, committing it to print is odious.
