While I agree the P-Touch and Dymo hand held units can do a nice
job, don't overlook that you can get printers to attach to your
computer to do make labels on the same media.
The downside of course is that when you sit at your computer to make
a label it's easy to get distracted and start reading Orchid....
The upside is that the included software allows much more font and
layout possibilities than the handheld units.
I have and use both.
Check out some of the units here (remember these are both Plain
Paper adhesive and Plastic labels like the p-touch)
This is similar to the unit I have
