I also have this review on ciao
I have had a letra tag printer/label maker for a while now and this is the tape I use for labelling things inside my flat. The tape cartridge is a bit fiddly to insert into the machine at first but after a few goes it becomes second nature. I buy mine from WH Smiths for £4.99 each.
The label is a bright white and it gives a good contrast to the black printing the machine applies to it. It is wide enough to make nice clear labels and can easily take the two lines setting the machine has without losing too much clarity. The backing strip is in two pieces so a simple bend along the length of the label makes these easy to remove and then apply the label to the object. With the surface of the label has a slightly waxy feel to it and it is one of the ‘heat printed’ types of label.
The label sticks well onto glass, plastic and paper/card. I have not as yet tried sticking them onto any metal object so I can’t comment on the sticking power here. They do not easily come off so you need to be sure they are properly aligned before sticking down fully. With the label being made of paper it may not survive that many times on jars washed by hand and I very much doubt it would survive even a single dishwasher cycle. Then again the tape is 4 meters long and most labels on my jars are a few cm so it doesn’t cost that much simply to replace them.
The labels I have on the objects inside my flat have stayed nice and white but the ones outside have yellowed slightly. However, I doubt direct sunlight would cause the yellowing as it occurred during winter so I doubt it would be hot enough and the label is in a covered porch like area which provides almost total shade all day. I put the yellowing down to simply being exposed to the elements and the pollution – as I do live on a main road but I can’t be certain.
The label cartridge can be used with the following models in the dynamo letra tag range: TAG QX50, LetraTag LT-100H, LetraTag LT-100T, LetraTAG XR
