Recommendation - Electronic Labeller

Postby autumnbronze » Sun Jan 05, 2014 7:37 pm


Thinking of investing in one. To label stuff at home, kids' belongings etc ...

Not sure what brand to look at.

What I have in mind right now is that labels may need to be waterproof and must be able to print up to 3 or 4 lines .....

Any tips/recommendations will be very much appreciated.

the important thing about buying label makers is the affordability of labels.

Brother P-Touch

This gift from gramps for DD1's 8th bday lasted us till today. She's coming 13. :D


Prints swiftly and clearly. Concealed cutter that cuts neatly.


Easy to remove/peel off labels with a two-part strip back.

Labels come in variety of colours & if like me, size does matter to you, you'd be delighted to know that it comes in different widths as well. The wider ones prints out nice big fonts.

The labels even come in fabric versions too.

Cartridges are pretty compact n easy to fix. One full cartridge can label all of my DD's (one DD) primary schoolbooks, plus school files and exercise books, schoolbag indicator and water bottle, with a little bit more to label quite a handful more of my other DD's books. Cartridges are easily available from Popular bookstores and even Challenger.

Brother's labellers come in many variations these days varying in size and price. There are even handheld versions if you prefer one that's easier to stow away.
