    Question Label maker recommendations?

    My DD1 is going into year 1 this year, and as I begin labelling all her pencils, twist ups, glue sticks, etc etc etc.... I realised that in a few years I'm going to be doing this for FOUR kids So, a label maker is probably something I should be investing in. Can anyone recommend a good one please? Labels that will stay stuck!

    TIA

    I just bought a label maker and the guy at officeworks recommended this particular brand because the labels are very durable and don't rub off. But I'm BFing DS at the moment and can't remember the brand. I'll check and get back to you.

    I have the Dymo brand one and I think it's great. I labelled DS lunch box last year with the plastic tape and the label didn't budge even though I washed it every single school day. I also bought the iron on tape and that lasted great too. Replacement tapes are about $13 each

    I just bought a Dymo Letratag this year. It was $29 at officeworks. Seems ok so far. The girls liked being able to change the little picture on the labels and change the colour between the colours we bought.

    I found the plastic ones didn't stick properly on the pencils etc but the metalic or paper ones did. Only they started to lift up a bit after a few days. I realised it was a good idea to put sticky tape around them anyway though as there are a few kids with sticky fingers who would probably take them and pick the labels off. I used the plastic tape on the lunch boxes and drink bottles etc and they seem good so far.
