Re: LABEL MAKERS - DYMO EL60 and Turbo
I have the Dymo LaberWriter "Turbo" model. It makes rather excellent
labels which I use both for plant markers and shipping labels.
I like the plant marker labels (clear - ID# 30254) however, they will
not work for the long term as they quickly fade out in the sun.
As Dan Nelson pointed out and I soon learned, the label must be
U.V. resistant. Fortunately, DYMO does make a U.V. resistant label,
but the pricing is pretty steep--$700 for 5,000 labels--but that isn't
too bad at a per label price of $.14. The problem, however, is that
they require a minimum purchase of the 5,000. I won't use that many,
between now and eternity, so if you are interested in pooling an order,
let me know. The printer itself is very easy to use, simple to install
and moderately fast. One can print other labels with it. Send
me a private message if interested.
