Economy Labels recommends using an IBM (Lexmark) 2380/2390 dot matrix
printer for plastic labels.  The beauty of this is the printers are easily
available used on eBay.  We purchased about 10 in a lot for $15.00 each and
they all worked.  I distributed them to most of the growers in our area.
Economy sells the fade resistant ink cartridges for the Lexmark and the
labels.  The printer does not jam as many others do.

We have found that most databases can produce the labels on the Lexmark
quite easily which allows us to keep all our data in one database.  You do
not need the Economy program if you have a database with label printing
capabilities or a good label printing program (available for about $10.00).
We use Paradox for the database.  Databases also have the ability to print
graphics so you can add your image to the label.  For Barcodes, we have
found it easier to print the barcode on clear plastic labels with a laser
printer and then stick them on the pot labels.  Clear plastic labels are
available at most Office supply stores, but cost less at Quill.  They have
held up so far in our harsh conditions of the mist and growing houses.  I
will know more about the durability of the stick on labels in a year or so.
