As I said, using the applique' is more work and less convenient.

Laser printers just put permanent toner on top of permanent plastic 
film. I usually give the finished tags a spraying with clear Krylon, but 
have not noticed any lifetime difference with the uncoated ones. And 
It's not much extra work or setup, because I spray the metal tags with 
green Krylon before putting on the applique'.

I do not have to cut up the film, however. My tags are 8 1/2 x 11".

Well, for the humor-impaired, I will admit the above is a lie. Each page 
must be laid out and then cut up.

For me the extra work (which I have not done in a while--I am way behind 
in doing tags, but old ones are over a decade old with no signs of aging 
other than gardener abuse) is more than worth not having yet one more 
gizmo in my computer setup.
