Default label maker

I'm wanting to purchase a label maker and don't want to spend a fortune. I would like your advice on what kind of label maker to purchase, if you have one and if you like it.
Thanks for your imput.

Label makers have come down in price but check the cost of the
refills - they vary widely.

I really like my Brother PT80 ... easy to use, lots of features ... but the refills are expensive ... well, they are expensive in Canada ... I bought some refills on ebay and even with shipping they were a GREAT price compared to what I would have paid here!

You can check out the Dymo website - I think they tell the features of the various ones there. I have the Dymo LetraTag QX50 that I got as a gift and I'm happy with it, but the top one on this page seems to have more fonts and stuff and is very little more money. I think it uses the same refills that mine does. They're only $7 for 2 at Walmart or Target. But you also have to figure how many feet the refills are.

I have a friend who has a Brother that's quite complicated - once she figured it out, she loves it, but the refills are $20! But it might make lots more labels. I labeled my stamp sets with mine and I LOVE to be able to see at a quick glance what is where! I have labels I printed out that have the stamp set name, item number, number of stamps in set, price, etc, etc, but it's harder to see the name of the stamp set. So I have those labels on one end and the bigger label with just the name on the other end.

I have a DYMO Letratag, too. I really like it. I like that I can get refills cheaply at Walmart. It doesn't have lots of font choices, but I really just wanted something basic. I got mine last January, and I have definitely been happy with it.

Another Letra Tag QX50 user who is very satisfied. I got it Office Depot for 19.95 I think. Refills are readily available and not expensive. I even saw (and bought) some tape that is magnetic - thought it was cool, don't know how I'll use it, but had to have it!

I also have the DYMO LetraTag and love it. Michael's carries the refills in a 2 pack for $6.99 and if you don't have anything more expensive to use your coupons on, you can get the labels even cheaper!

I have everything labeled!!

I have a DynoLetra Tag. Liked it so well, I had one ordered for me at school too.

Got my personal one at Walmart and the school one at Quill.

This is the one I had, my mom gifted it to me for Christmas, I use it constantly, my latest was to label all my ribbon cards with what color ribbon was on them, so I know when I need more! LOVE IT! It works great. Refills are like 10 dollars for me here, but they last forever!

Default Help! Label maker doesnt print right!

I purchased the Dymo Letratag the other day. It printed fine for a few labels but now it looks like the ink is running out, or poor print quality. Plugged it in, still poor quality, changed the cartridge, same thing.

Did I get a bum one or is there something else??

You must have a bad one because I have had mine for almost 3 years and have made hundreds of labels and it still prints fine - I have at least 2 labels on every stamp set I own (over 100), all my inks, each color in my paper racks, my file folders, etc.!
