For printing CD-R cover art I recommend using Cover XP Pro.

Just a question, what do you guys print out your covers on?

I tried one on regular paper, but the paper wrinkled because of the wet ink.

You can go down to a office store (Staples, Office Max, etc) and buy special thicker paper for covers and if you decide to go with a name brand (Avery, Nero, etc) the paper will come in templates with perferaded pop-out areas. If you buy that, you will most likely have to install some kind of software that will allow you to copy and paste the .jpg cover files into the template on the software and print the covers fit into place.

I think it's call glossy paper.
It's more resistant to the ink and kinda looks like photo paper making them look sharp :rock:

Glossy photo paper is kick ass for printing covers, provided you have a half way decent printer. I use a Lexmark something-or-other and it works really well. See this topic for more information: http://www.metcovera...p?showtopic=116

Glossy paper sounds good. Now all I have to worry about is not cutting it out too big/small along the edges... Should be fine. :blink:
