You would find those tricky to print as they often have a surface
somewhere between greaseproof paper and ordinary paper, so an inkjet
printer may have trouble with adhesion.Also it is very thin, so if it
does stick then bleeding may also be an issue. I wouldn't laser print
as I imagine they would get stuck in the internals. It is a nice idea,
next time I am in the cash and carry I will try and get some to see
what can be done ,out of interest. 1000 cd sized ones are only £2.40,
it's the postage cost that is the sting. If you have a catering
supplies place near you they might be worth a try, otherwise booker
cash and carry have them, although you do need to be a member, I don't
think you need to be a business anymore though.

Or just nip to the corner shop and see if you can blag a couple ;)
