    Anyone have a label maker?
    Brand?
    Cost?
    What made you buy that particular one?
    How do you like it?
    What don't you like?
    Is it expensive to use?
    After using yours, would you now buy something else?

    What kind of labels? Like return address? Don't use adhesive cd labels. Those are bad.

    Duh, sorry.
    I'm referring to the makers for labelling things around the house, badge names, that sort of thing. Not the little squeezee kind that makes the raised print on plastic tape. I saw one for about $20 and another for about $25. Then they started to really increase in price.

    Oh, and what's wrong with the CD labels?

    Ultimately the adhesive gums up your cd drive/player.

    No, I do not have a label maker.

    I have never been acquainted with anyone who did
    until I read the first post here.

    A label maker? People are gonna argue about what's theirs
    even if someone else's name is on the label.

    Why bother with 'em?

    As in Sharpie? I have some, too. I need something a bit more professional looking.

    Have you looked into either of these?

    The Holy Roller by Thumper!
    "The fastest labeller on the market"

    Features include pre-programmed "sinner", "blasphemy", and "persecutor" labels that can be created with the touch of a single button.

    Drawbacks include haphazard application of labels and limited to black and white.

    OR

    The Demo-Label by Deanco!
    "The next best thing to the Holy Roller"

    Features include pre-programmed "bigot" and "homophobe" labels that can be created with the touch of a single button.

    Drawbacks include liberal application of labels and limited to pastels and shades of gray.
