The ability to print your own CD labels will come in handy if you frequently burn your own music, data or photo CDs to share with friends or coworkers. Or, if you frequently back up your files by copying them to CDs, you’ll need to label each CD clearly so that you can find your files when you need them. You can print CD labels using Microsoft Word and a downloadable CD label template. The CD template is compatible with Word versions 97 or later.
