You can get a printer that will print photos and CDs and do them very well such as this Canon Pixma for very little money.

I have a slightly earlier model and it's brilliant.

My Canon ip4500 does that using a CD holder and cost about £80 and does great prints too. Worth looking at that range of printers online as they will have moved up a few models since then.

Canon MG6150. A great little printer for the money. Does CD printing, direct from card printing, copying and scanning.

CD printing is a common feature on may Canon and Epson models

Canon Pixma's are excellent quality printers. I have the ip4700 and this also prints CDs. Mine is A4 but you may be able to go for the A3. My next one will definately be Canon pixma A3 for the larger size print capabilities.

My Canon Pixma IP4300, cost £65 about 4 years ago and is still going strong, prints cds'.
And produces good prints without all the endless faffing about that the previous Epon RX500 needed.

Thank you all again. I'm after A4 but if you can recommend any A3 format that would be great.
I'm also a bit worried about the inks price. Is there any second parties inks supplyers for Canon?
I'm using Epson now (on its last legs) and second party inkis saved me fortune Wink

I'm not sure if any of you used this company before but it sounds good for the third party inks:
