Default Tip of the day

When printing peel-off labels, it is best to print on the same side of the sheet where the labels are. Printing on the back side leads to much frustration when one tries to peel the labels from the printed side. I know from personal experience. I also discovered that I must carefully examine both sides of the sheet while wearing my glasses, before deciding which side to print.

ROFL!!!

I've done that myself and it sure is annoying...'-}}


By the way...I stumbled across and online label vendor a number of years ago and have been ordering my lables--easypeel, return address (1/2" x 1.75", Avery 5167), shipping (2" x 4", Avery 5163) and diskette (3.5" x 3.5", Avery 6490) from labeloutfitters ever since--much less expensive than Avery's labels...

LOL!

And leading up to that, work out which side needs to be up when feeding the printer. And then use one of your labels on the printer. To remind you which side goes up.

But look at the bright side: Having printed on the back side, you can use the labels again.
