How do I print My Labels that last longer then anything else

Steve Here


Will if you use a sharpie or paint pen well they wear out

I looked for a cheap fix and My daughter say she know it was
DYMO LabelManager 280

it came with 1/2 inch x 23 feet tap it prints on Black on white and per roll tap cost around 5 buck that a lots of labels

the hand held print up to 2 lines all kinds of fonts also can be hook to your computer to put your own trade mark on your label
the labels or water ,UV proof has a sticky back if you need it and can be use on tree label or tags


See pictures below .


Thanks Steve


P.s. I order mine from Amazon  and the D1 labels you can find good deals on the label like 6 packs

Looks great, Steve! Give us the update in the coming years, and let us know how they hold up!
I hope they work great, because there’s nothing worse than trying to remember what you had written on the labels.

Steve,

Did you use any adhesive to help keep it stuck for a couple of years?

Steve,

Thank you for sharing.  I have being using permanent markers and let me tell you, they are not permanent at all.  I need to redo them every year

I use the brother p touch labeled with the TZ grade. Very waterproof, and light resistant. I found some outside still looking good after 10 years. Make sure it is on a substrate that is good. (Metal or iv stable plastic) some of the polystyrene plane labels might not stand up as long as the adhesive label sticking to it
