Hi I need to buy a new spindle of blank CD's and I'm wondering what the most minimal brand is as far as the design on the front face. I just want a very basic CD, but still very good quality. Suggestions? I had been thinking Memorex....?

Buy printable CDs from any manufacturer. The front face will be blank. That's about as minimal as you can get.

Ultra-generic CDs are usually blank as well if the minor price difference is a concern.

I wish I had an answer. Instead, I'd like to expand the question:

How about blank DVDs as well?

At one time, Sony had very minimal blank DVD labeling, but the quality is hit-and-miss.

I think I understand what the OP is wanting, and I totally agree. I hate when there are all kinds of logos and design elements over every part of a blank CD or DVD; it visually interrupts any hand-labeling I might do. I'd love to do Lightscribe for everything (my wife's Compaq has it), but the Lightscribe media is quite expensive in comparison.

EDIT: Thanks, Darth.Titan! I hadn't thought of printables.

I bought some cheap at a computer store once. they had no image what-so-ever on the front...sometimes made it hard to tell front and back apart.

You could buy from Discmakers and get blank or white printed blank CDs and write what you want on them.
