Valentines day is coming up. For those of you with a who need a gift idea, and who like to put things on CD’s or DVD’s, here is a template for Valentines Day. Maybe you’ve got a bunch of romantic songs that the both of you like that you could put on a CD, or maybe you’ve got a bunch of videos on your iPod or iPhone that you can put on a DVD. We had a similar template in 2010, but reworked the heart to be sharper using an in house SVG heart made in the free program Inkscape.
We’ve got CD labels and DVD Labels here. Ever want to create a CD label or DVD label in Microsoft Word that has text running along the path of a curve that is concentric to the label? Welps, Word can’t do it. Oh, you say you can? With WordArt? OK, you go with that then. You’ll discover the WordArt text is misshapen, and doesn’t follow the curve of a circle very well. Using Inkscape, we’ve created a CD/DVD label using our existing template for the ML-7560/ML-7565 labels. They’re the same as the Avery 5698 layout. You’ll need OpenOffice to check it out. Have no fear though, OpenOffice is FREE. We created the lettering in Inkscape. You’ll need that too, and it’s also FREE.
Once you’ve created the text in Inkscape, you can select the text, then copy it to the clipboard, and then paste it directly into your OpenOffice document. You can resize it to you hearts delight yet still print and display as clear as ever.
Here’s a donut CD/DVD template on our ML-7560 CD/DVD inkjet & laser compatible labels. Enjoy!
