    Labels

    I'm looking for something to use for labels, in a laser printer. I want something waterproof, for outside. I understand that pressure sensitive vinyl labels can't take the heat of the printer; it has to be Mylar, or something. I've seen some waterproof laser labels, that come so many to the sheet, but they're expensive, something like a nickel each. I have 20,000 cuttings rooting now and really don't want to have to pay $1,000.00 (plus toner) for labels for them. I don't care if they are individual labels on a sheet, or just one full size sheet. I have a cutter, and can cut them apart. Any ideas?

    John,

    They sale a clear waterproof mailing label that can be used in a printer. I tried them, and they worked. How long they will last in the sun, I don't know because I didn't get a chance to give it a prolonged and documented trial. I was simply using them on scapes where I was doing crosses.

    They come in sheets, just like the paper ones. It would require pulling them off and sticking them to a plastic label, but that's pretty easy.

    I don't remember what the cost was, but you might want to check around to see.

    Great Marker

    Just wanted to let some of you know about a marker that has so far lasted over a year on mini blind strips. The marker is made for archiving and has pigment ink. These can be found in the craft sections or hobby stores. The one I have been using has caps on both ends(fine tip & flare tip).

    for sharing Steve

    It is always good to hear a recommendation about the ever frustrating and disappearing labels.

    Do these markers have a brand name?

    I myself use 4B Progresso pencils available in Art shops.
