I need some advice about labelling things for sale. I create & sell
beadwork & chain mail kits & I label them by using a database program
& printing out sheets of labels. This works well when I have lots to
be labelled, but not so well when there are just a few because I end
up with sheets with many blank labels in the middle. (I know how to
use them up, but it takes a lot of fiddling & effort.)
I also sell some beading/chain mail supplies at shows (think thread,
needles etc.), plus bags of jump rings, books, tools, lots of
clasps. Well, you get the picture. Some, like clasps, need tiny
labels; others can handle bigger ones. The small ones I have to
handwrite!! What a pain, and not professional.
So, to make a long story shorter, I want to know what you’d
recommend for labelling. And maybe I need to get one labeller for
large labels, and a different machine for the tiny ones. Are there
any issues re the kinds of labels? (size, colour (white, gold &
black),plastic coating…) that I need to know. Can I connect it to
my computer (Mac) & use existing
I’ve been looking on the internet (Dymo, Brother) but don’t know
where to start.
I’d appreciate learning from your experiences!
