We have  a Brother p-Touch and use TZ tape to label our plants. Ours have been out in the hot Australian sun for 3 years and not a sign of fading.

All of the information regarding the Brother Label makers is wonderful. It would also be helpful if model nos. could be indicated and also what part of the country they are being used in. I am in California where usually the sun shines from about May 15th thru October 15th. That is a lot of exposure for thermal labels. I used a lesser smaller Brother label maker once and the labels barely lasted one season. It may be that I did not use the correct label which I notice seems to be TZ. Can anyone give more information about this kind of label? Thank you for your answers.

I use a Brother label maker that does not attach to a PC, just a hand
held device. It only cost $30 and uses the TZ labels that are for
indoor/outdoor use. I use the black print on clear labels on zinc
markers. My labels are over two years old and still look like the day
they were printed.

I like the fact that the label maker is portable. I keep it with my
plant supplies in the garage and can print out a label as soon as I get
the plant and am ready to plant it.

This label maker prints on tapes from 1/4 to 3/8" wide and also does
underline, italics, outline, etc and can print on 1, 2 or 3 lines. I
don't need anything fancier than that.
