Advantages Useful labels
Disadvantages Requires a lot of strength to work well
I am an avid Scrapbooker and I am always looking for ways to add interest to my pages. Whilst looking through a magazine I saw that someone had used Dymo labels as a way of adding journaling. I thought it looked great and immediately went out hunting for a Dymo label maker of my own.I remember Dymo label makers from my school days but I hadn’t actually seen them for years. They all appeared very complicated and also very expensive so I decided that I would do without. However several months later I spotted the Dymo Junior in my local stationary store reduced to £5. I have since seen them on sale at about £10 so I do feel I got a bargain.
The Dymo junior is six inches long. The handle is about 2 inches wide and it is quite large across the top where the letter disk is situated. The product is also quite deep due to the Dymo cartridge fitting inside the rear. The gadget is blue and green and very light although it does not feel at all flimsy. It is certainly not designed to look sleek and elegant and would appeal more to children I would have thought. This device takes the 9mm Dymo tapes.
As I first stated I wanted this to add words to my scrapbook page and I have used it a lot for this. There are several colours available for the tape including the traditional red, black and blue. I also have yellow, orange and green. For crafters that maybe reading this it is also possible to put ordinary card through and then use inks to show the embossed words.
The labels are self-adhesive so it is only necessary to peel off the back layer and then press them down. If you have used the “cut” facility there is a handy little bend produced in the tape to help you peel the label apart. If you resorted to cutting the tape with a pair of scissors then you will have to scrape at it a bit with your nail to separate it.
My husband then saw many uses for the Dymo and it became his favourite toy. Like so many people we have an absolute jumble of wires under our desk and now each plug has its own label.
