    ❏ Since the quality of any particular brand or type of disc may be changed by the manufacturer at any time, Epson cannot attest to the quality of any brand or type of disc. Always test samples of disc stock before purchasing large quantities or printing large jobs.

    ❏ Do not use in a place where lots of dirt and dust are present. ❏ Leaving discs stacked may result in discs sticking to each other. ❏ Let the discs dry naturally after printing. Touching the surface with your hand or splashing the surface with water right after printing may result in blurriness and stickiness.

  • Page 108: Printable Area

    Printing on sections outside the printable area may damage your CD/DVD/BD drive. ❏ The EPSON Total Disc Maker can set between an inner diameter of 18 mm and an outer diameter of 119.4 mm (0.71 to 4.70"). However, printing outside printable area (45 to 116 mm) may result in sticking, staining of the disc tray, peeling of print, and blurring of print.
