Put a space before and after your “word”
Reviewed in the United States on July 16, 2019
I love this little label maker. The labels are just freaking adorable.
The bad reviews are in my opinion mostly user error. Except of course for the ones where the machine is broken.
Once I select the character I want, I use both hands to squeeze the trigger and hold for a couple of seconds before releasing and the embossing comes out very nicely.
-The labels are definitely on the smaller side, smaller than I thought but they still work great for labeling smaller items. If you’re labeling larger things you might want to spring for the larger model. Or even if you’re just more spendy than me, the larger seemed too expensive for me.
-The labels have really good stickiness. It takes me forever to take the back off but that’s because I have very short nails and very bad coordination.
-It doesn’t feel sturdy. The label maker is very lightweight and feels cheap. If I dropped it on hard flooring I think it might break altogether or maybe that the back cover where the tape loads might pop off for good since it feels delicate. For the price I don’t mind, I don’t expect it to last forever and when it does break I will buy another one.
If you look at my SAMPLE 1 in my pictures you can see that you should definitely put a space AFTER your last character or the label gets cut too short.
If you look at SAMPLE 2 you can see that white shadow on the upper left corner. If you don’t want that marking on your label, put a space BEFORE your first character and AFTER your last character.
If you look at SAMPLE 3, you can see it’s not as clearly embossed as when I use two hands to squeeze the trigger.
