Re: [BCAB] Best Device For Labelling Items, Food Etc? Jackie Cairns 03 Nov 2012 09:07 GMT

Hi Vince

Yes indeed.  We've got a revolving spice and herb rack that has 20 jars in
it.  We've stuck the small round labels, one on each jar, and this works a
treat for identifying each herb or spice.  We've got another Penfriend that
we keep upstairs for paperwork.  This saves having to hunt it out when we
need to identify anything while cooking.  I still use my Braille Dymo gun
for labelling music CDs as I have always done though.

Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

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.
