I think RWs are a little more expensive, but I haven’t looked into prices yet. We are planning to do CD favors. RW just means you can edit the disc after stuff is saved on it (RW stands for re-writable, I think). I always used RWs in college to transfer documents and such….cause we didn’t have flash drives then haha.

Rs are one and done…and I think cheaper, but again, I haven’t looked recently. This is all based on my college memories.

what songs are you including? care to share? I put my Fiance in charge of our list, cause he is the one who really wants to do it, but I need to throw him some suggestions so that it’s not bob dylan only.

I recommend CD-R’s for several reasons:

1. They are not re-writeable (CD-RW is).  You burn them once and it’s permanent.  You wouldn’t want your guests writing over the CD’s you made for them!

2. They’re cheaper than CD-RW.

3. CD-R is actually more compatible with CD players.  There are a few older CD players out there that wouldn’t be able to read a CD-RW.

You should see if you can get a big box of empty jewel cases, and print up some customer cover art with your picture or something, and print the song list on the back of the cover.  That would be really cute.  🙂

Oh bummer – just read your update.  I’m kinda surprised actually, because I’ve heard of people using CD’s as favors before.

No, the law is a party pooper.  🙁
