Has anyone discovered a means of producing attractive labels for Vario binders that permanently adhere to the spine?

I use a Brother P-Touch D400 label printer, the labels it creates are very neat and professional looking. Brother make a range of label printers; the D400 is probably far from the latest model as I bought it a few years ago but it does what I need.

These printers print on a glossy self-adhesive tape which is available in a number of colours as well as transparent.
Dymo and Casio make similar printers, I chose the Brother because it was on special at the time.

There have been a few discussions about this, eg

http://goscf.com/t/51137&whichpage=2

As you can see: (a) I've tried various methods; (b) I'm not fussy; and (c) I don't value uniformity.




Hello, my photo's fallen over again!

I use white, easy peel, address labels that I can write on, in block letters. Like GeoffHa, I'm not fussy and don't worry about uniformity. They do need occasional replacing, but a package is far less expensive than buying a whole new gadget. Disclosure: my regular printer can print labels, but have never used it for that purpose.

I purchase a moderately expensive 3-ring binder at the local Staples that has a slip label holder which I can use a Sharpie to identify the album. There is a clear 'window' on the spine which protects the label from smearing during use. (The label tag is provided with the binder)

Steve - after a brief experience, my former work colleagues made clear that I was not to try to print labels again, and that I was not to use Excel unless accompanied by an adult. I follow these rules in retirement.

Another vote for the Brother P-Touch here after I started a similar thread a few months ago :)

Thanks everyone for the tips, and thanks GeoffHa for the photos! I will look into the Brother printer. I am unfortunately quite particular about aesthetics and uniformity!

Geoff: I understand your thoughts about Excel. All three of my devices are Apple, including the desktop I do 99% of my work on. I have Microsoft Office for Macs, and Excel is still difficult.

profgreeley: hope it works out to your satisfaction. If I may ask, are you a professor at UNC in Greeley, CO?

If you use standard paper labels just use large address labels with an Avery template.

This is what I did for my labels. There is another thread on here.

Angore, I have some serious label envy! How did you create them?

I started with the Microsoft Word Avery label template and labels then adjusted background and text color until I get the desired look.

Here is the original thread. There are several older threads discussing labels in the "software/supplies" heading.
