I am the author of TeX Tutorials on Youtube.

I am a linguist, lecturer and documentation specialist.

I use

  • Xelatex because of the unicode support.
  • OS X
  • Unix

I am a supporter of up-votes for good questions (not just good answers).

My favorite package is tikz (and tikz-qtree).

comment How can I design a DVD tray template to for my DVD label printer with TikZ?
The convenience of putting some clipping code at the top of the tikzpicture is robust in that it allows an arbitrary number of shapes to be subsequently drawn without concern for drawing anywhere outside the printable area (this includes white circles in the middle). Clipping both the inside and outside of the printable area makes the image web-friendly too (for svg output of actual printable area). What I meant by quality is not cutting corners, but doing it the right way. A little work now saves time later...

Thats great! But I've already got this far. I'd like to clip out the middle and the outside as said above in my comment :)

I thought of that already. Clipping both outside the outer circle and inside the inner circle is a requirement. "Killing" the area, as you called it, seems more like a low-quality solution. I'd like to be able to produce both pdf and svg images of the label with a transparent/clipped middle. Thanks for the input though. Your solution does work in a pinch!
