I have always wanted to try out a labelling machine. I know I am pretty sad, but things like this get me excited. When I went to college I did business studies and I loved to do the stock take and laminating posters. I could have stood there laminating things all day long. So when I was asked to try out the Brother Handheld label Printer I thought fantastic, I can re-live my college days.
I was a bit disappointed when it came, only because I couldn’t use it straight away. It takes 6 AAA batteries, which I only had 4, so I had to wait until I went shopping to get some more. So a few days later I finally got to try it out. It was a lot bigger than I was expecting, but not very heavy. The batteries and label dispenser are really easy to put in. Just simply click in place, put the back on and you are ready.
I started straight away making a Christmas lights label. I just pressed the on button, wrote in what I wanted and pressed the print button
There you go. Then you simply press the green cutter button to cut your label. I was going to fasten this label to my Christmas tree light cable, so we knew which plug it was, but then I found out that the labelling machine actually has a special cable option. I selected this and wrote in what I wanted. I changed my wording to just ‘Lights’ has I didn’t want the label too long. pressed print and there is my label.
There are other options on this model to add frames to your labels and even cute little pictures. Here is the heart frame.
These would be great to label my kids books and toys etc. I have been having so much fun with the label maker, there are so many things this could be used for. Maybe even when wrapping the kids Christmas presents. One of the things I did with it was let our Elf on The Shelf play with it. She wrote a message to the kids from Santa, has they was being naughty the day before.
I love this and my husband is going to want to kill me next year. As January is when I organize the entire house and I am going to be going mad labelling everything. I can’t wait!
I was sent out the Brother’s labelling machine in return for this post. All opinions are mine
