George,

Can the larger ones take different sizes of labels, so you can use
smaller for items and larger for addresses?

Hi Donna,

I'm not Kevin, but we do have 3 of these labellers in the office, which
are very heavily used.

What is so special about these label printers, be they
Dymo's, Seiko's, or any other personal labeller of their
type, is that they can print "one off" labels.  The
alternative is usually A4 sheets of labels, and that gets messy.

Software does come with the printers, but using Word is not difficult.
However, it does pay to set up a label template for on-going use.

You do need to consider what maximum size of label you want
to use.  The cheapest ones will only do labels about 1 inch wide, where
the larger ones take at least two widths.

The printers themselves do not use ink.  They use what is
known as a "Thermal Transfer Process".  Although this means
you do have to buy the proper labels, which are not overly expensive,
you never have to worry about running out of ink.

Once you get one of these, you'll be surprised how indispensable it
becomes.  If you tried to take away any from our office, you'd get your
fingers cut off!  (Smile)

George.
