The label maker has been getting a workout lately.
I use a brother label maker, and alcohol wipes to prep every surfaceWhat kind of label maker do you have. Mine is good for crap. The labels stay on for a while, then fall off and won't stick anymore after that.

Picked it up used years ago, and it works great for heat shrink tubing.
Like Dan I use the label maker for wiring jobs.... but I never sprang for the expensive tube label material.It's not obvious to me what you mean when you say it works great with heat shrink tubing Dan...... What's that all about. My mind is even more blank than usual right now.
You can get rolls/cartridges of heat shrink tubing that will print like a label. It's more expensive than regular shrink tubing obviously, but very handy for labeling control panels.

Yes I use brother labels as well, to assure that I don't have issues with compatibility.You didn't say, so I have to ask. Have you ever had problems with it? Any surface materials to avoid?
Also, can I assume you use brother labels too?
No problem. Happy to help someone else spend their money .I LOVE THIS! I never knew it existed! I have always bought sheet labels for wiring - small squares or strips you stick to the wire or wrap on. This is WAAAY better!

I dont use them on bare wood... because woods often have oils that make the labels fall off eventually, where I need to label wood I finish the wood and then as always, alcohol wipe.
When I use lables on wire I use the thinnest (also the cheapest) and I wrap the label around the wire to leave the ends flying off like little flags. The tape ends stuck to each other adhesive sides facing each other. They never fall off and are cheap
Honestly, that's actual competence. I'll take clearly labeled over clever any day.it helps to make me look competent, and much better than I actually am lol.
