    I use Microsoft Word to make a template.

      I also use Microsoft Word templates with Avery labels. I run into problems when there are only a few labels that need to be printed. When I re-use the Avery sheet sometimes the toner starts to “leak” onto the labels and make them darker than they should be.

    We use the Dymo Labelwriter Twin Turbo at La Grange – it prints well, but the spine labels can fade under flourescent lights.

    We use the OCLC Cataloging Label Program, and we use Demco spine label protectors to prevent fading under fluorescent lights — though they do create a bit of a glare.

    We have Zebra GX420t and love them. Mine is used with spine label templates and the others in the department were purchased from Computype and do not require using templates. The Computype ones cost significantly more, but I honestly think they are worth it because I hate changing templates.

  5. We use Demco spine labels, covered with label protectors. Printed through our regular printer, using a Word template.
