    What is the difference between inkjet printable and inkjet hub printable? I see these both every time I order my discs. I always go with just the inkjet printable, as I have an Epson R220. But I was just wondering if the inkjet hubs would work the same?

    The regular inkjet printables, print [bold]up to[/bold] the hub (center diameter is about 33mm).
    The hub printables, print up to the small center hole (center diameter is about 18mm). Maxell calls them "Print to Center" discs.
    I like to keep both on hand.

    Full hubs offer the best picture because more of the surface will be printed..

    You should have gotten Epson Printcd with your R-220. Click on the yellow disc icon on the lower left. Set the settings for the inner as:

    Full hub= 20 mms
    Reg hub= 40 mms.

    Outer will still be around 119 mms.

    OK

    Try changing the size and see the difference of that template on your screen.

    I like the shiny vs the white.More of a 3D look.The matte white tends to look a little faded,especially on the lighter covers.

    Now there's full hub shiny and glossy whites-which should look awesome. I'll order some of those after my supply dwindles and those prices drop, LOL.

    I love those Maxell hitachi full hubs!!!
