Acard 1 to 5 Duplicator | Ebuyer.com
we have had one for a few years no problems with it at all
I'm not doing this again... Year 6 DVDs using single drawer burners... I'm on number 14 of 21 having started 3 hours ago and Year 6 leave in 19 hours
Any suggestions for a low cost, easy to use duplicator please? Sending them off to do is not an option as things ain't organised enough to get them done in time

If you want to be able to print on them also, I'd say have a look at Microboards G3 (we have the G2 series model I believe). Basically, you stick discs in the hole, set up a master disc, and print file and click go. It does the rest for you.
However, I don't know if you'd define them as cheap, at £1000.
They do, however, make a LightScribe model of their duplicators (so, it can do a cover but it isn't printed). The 'CopyWriter Pro Lightscribe Duplicator' series. They're available in 3,5,7 and 10 disc models I believe, ranging from around £350-£700.
Not interested in printing... I'm quite happy with applying laser printed CD labels
I have the Microboards G3, piece of cake stick master in master drive stick cds in the other drives and press GO....couldnt be easier...saved me hours and hours of work!!

Full surface or “donut-style” labels are preferable to partial stickers but be aware that any adhesive label can potentially upset the balance of a disc when playing back, especially at high speeds, causing excessive noise, vibration and data retrieval problems. Heat, humidity, handling and the passage of time can also compromise the stability of adhesive labels causing separation from the disc surface and even interfere with the drive. Sticky labels may not be the best choice when archiving important data as some types of label adhesives can react with and compromise the disc over time. Remember too that, once applied, labels should never be removed or repositioned. Even smoothing air bubbles can concentrate physical stresses in a small area and delaminate the disc. (Source)
for printing we have an epson inkjet with a special adapter for prining on cds think its a colour 950 just design you image with the supplied software and print what you need.
just get a little minion to change the cds for you
