Label Maker Tip

A few years ago I picked up a nice DYMO label maker for less than $10, and found that the third party label cartridges worked fine about 90% of the time for about one third the price. I liked it so much that I got one for work as well where we used it label electronics for exhibit components.

Right on the back of the label maker, where you can’t lose it, is a simple visual guide showing what size type your label will use. Even with training in graphic design it can be hard to visualize what 16 points will look like versus what 20 points will look like. Guess no more! Here’s the guide!
