We used Brother P-touch for the lettering for labels at MASS Medley
(Siberian and Species convention) and were very happy with it. The P-touch
was applied to a label which we made out of 1) vinyl covered clothesline
wire which we bought at Home Depot and formed into a kinda' letter T (with
one side of the top doubled) and 2) a rectangle made from aluminum roof
flashing. The rectangle had a hole punched in each end and was threaded
into the top part of the "T", then the open end was bent to keep the
rectangle in place. The labels were quite inexpensive to make. Maybe I can
draw the "T".
This design could be adapted in size, etc. Or you could try finding a
heavier weight aluminum and cut simple labels.
