Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9952713A1] A system (19) for inkjet printing of CDs comprises loading the CD into a rigid carrier (11) with a cavity which holds a CD flush with the upper surface of the carrier, passing the carrier past the inkjet printing head and printing the CD, and emptying the carrier. Loading and emptying may be automated. The carrier may have doors for releasing the printed CD in an automated system. A printer designed for printing paper may be adapted to operate the system while still being capable of printing paper.
