Re: [BCAB] Best Device For Labelling Items, Food Etc? Vince Thacker 02 Nov 2012 21:53 GMT

I'm quite happy with the Penfriend too, and have bought a vast quantity of
labels along with it, so am not too worried they're going to run out any
time soon.

It's a very quick way of labelling correspondence, small containers of,
e.g., aromatherapy oils, medication, switch positions on electrical items.

I haven't tried the washable labels, and have not used the Penfriend for
clothing items, as those labels seem quite expensive, and I'm not certain of
the results.

Vince.
