Label maker alert

Posted by bspofford (My Page) on

I was just reviewing the Friday online specials from Staples. They have the PT 1880 on sale for $19.99! I don't know if this is also available at that price in the store, or online only, but it is even cheaper than what Sam's Club sells it for.

However, for the tapes, Sam's has the best price hands down. They also carry (online only) the tazzeta tapes for the smaller p-touch, delivered for less than you can buy at a store, IF you can find them.

I know labelmakers have been a hot topic for us in the past, so if you have been on the fence about buying one, now is a good time.

Two people I know will get one for Christmas this year....

I ran to my Staples as soon as I read this and got the last one! Thanks for the tip. Have never used a labelmaker before, but have been lurking here a while and am determined to get my house (and life) organized!!!

Go for it Prof! I've got labels on everything from scissors to the freezer shelves.

TIP: The tapes are expensive but have the right tape for the right job e.g. Clear tape w/black ink for clear bottles; white ink for dark surface.

Sorry, I need to correct the info about purchasing tapes. The smaller machines that use the "M" tapes....that size is getting harder to find in stores. Sam's Club has it online only for $7.22 delivered. The TZ size tapes are anywhere from $9.43 to 15.12 for one, or $29.84 online for a 3 pack. The 3-pack is currently available in the stores.

The 3 pack is a great price. I'm going to followup on that.

Thank you for the lead Barbara.

Has anyone used the iron on clothing labels? I hope to start labeling my daughter's clothes and all her school stuff. Also--I don't have a Sam's Club membership--any other suggestions on the cheapest place to buy the tape?

Thanks!

There is usually a lot on e-bay. I haven't looked for a while...

Poop--I missed it! That one uses TWO fonts, which is the new "minimum" for me.

I love my P-touch, but I wish I had a serif font choice.

(I have some bday money; maybe I'll get serious about buying one of these with it?)

Barbara, thanks for the ebay info. I went and put a bid on one. You're right, there are lots. if I don't get it this time, I'll try again if I'm in the mood.

And, I won it, at the price I wanted!
