Run screaming from this. These labels can be quite destructive as the adhesive ages over time and the label starts to peel. Some day a flap of the label will wreck the DVD read head. Bad say ensues.

Though you might have to hunt for one or use a friend's if you don't have it, using an inkjet printer that can print labels directly on your (of course) label-printable side blank DVD is the best way to go.
I've seen too many horrors over the years from adhesive labels. I cringed when I saw this as a recommended way to label your DVD project.
Labels are also difficult to apply in a perfectly centered fashion (I remember there being a product called the "CD Stomper" that was *supposed* to remedy this problem). An off-center label can cause vibration in your drive with resulting read errors and a lot of wear on the drive's tracking mechanism as a result.

I agree with the other posters, never stick (maybe slight pun intended) a recipient with a peel-off label. I use Falcon inkjet printable blu-rays, available online.
