Having a lot of CDs around with only a few words labeled on a silver faceplate is painful for the eyes. I have come up with an idea, for the last 2 years, of making your own CD cover by using only a few tools, a walkman, a couple of water-based or permanent marking pens and a clip.
NOTE: I am not responsible for any type of damage, either by loss of information, physical or economical, due to the use of this technique. You have been warned.
Step 1: Before starting . . .
Firstly, you need a CD Walkman, one of those that can only run once the lid is closed. The lid has a little plastic or metal extension that enters a little hole and hits a small button that turns the system on. If you can insert a piece of a clip, or something similar, into that cavity, and keep it stable, and have a CD running freely with the lid open, you can start working.
Step 2: Before starting (2)
2. Insert the clip or plastic. Make sure that the Walkman identifies the CD you are about to use and begins to play it. Have an AC or DC current plugged in the Walkman or have your batteries fully charged. Turn off the volume and the bass and set it to repeat the first track of the CD, therefore it'll run much faster. Make sure the CD doesn't have any physical contact with the clip or plastic.
3. You are ready to begin.
