2. Considerations on Selecting Label Tapes

It’s not always easy to select the right label tapes from a sea of different label tapes available in the marketplace. So what factors need to be taken into consideration when selecting label tapes and how to judge the quality of certain label tapes. In the following section, we’ll show you several considerations on selecting label tapes and propose some ways to judge the quality of label maker tapes.

3. Factors to Consider on Selecting Label Tapes

(1) Compatibility

The first factor for you to consider is whether the label tape is compatible with your label maker or label printer. If you buy a label tape cassette that is incompatible with your DYMO label maker, it is not only a waste of time and money, but it may also cause severe damage to your machine. Therefore, it is very import to buy the right label tapes for your label maker to ensure compatibility and performance.

(2) Longevity

The second factor for you to consider is whether the label tape can last for a long time, i.e. whether the label tape can create clear and durable labels. You should pay attention to its raw materials, adhesiveness, wear-resistance and chemicals-resistance, etc. You can first try some samples to test the quality and performance of certain compatible label tapes before buying in bulk.

(3) Size

Label maker tapes come in different sizes, so you need to figure out what your specific project needs are. Choose 1/4-inch label tape for small areas, including supply boxes or file folder tabs. For file drawers, large packages, or shelf signs, choose tape that is 1-inch wide or larger. Label tape is available in continuous rolls and die-cut shapes to offer you maximum design freedom.

(4) Color

Apart from size, label maker tapes also provide a variety of color options, and you thus need to consider what color you want or what color your customers prefer. If you need to spot labels in a cluttered desk drawer or on a large package, select bright yellow label tape. White tapes create the highest contrast level with black text, which ensure both visibility and readability. Clear tapes keep the focus on the text and allow you to create a streamlined look.

(5) Adhesive

Many label tapes are backed with high-strength adhesive which sticks firmly on both smooth and rough surfaces. Therefore, you also need to figure out your application purposes and scenarios. General-purpose adhesives are suitable for mailing and in-office use. However, when you’re labeling items for use on tough surfaces or in environments with dramatic temperature changes, choose heavy-duty label maker tapes with ultra-strength adhesives.

4. Ways to Judge Label Tape’s Quality

(1) Molds

The first way to judge the quality of a label maker tape is to see its molds. The precision of a label tape’s molds directly determine whether different parts of a label tape function properly. If label tape cassette is poorly designed and manufactured, it will generate greater friction while the label tape rotates, further resulting in greater force by the roller to pull out the tape, which may easily cause the label maker or label printer to get stuck, or shorten the roller’s service of life.

(2) Joint

The second way is to observe the label tape joint to judge its quality. A good-quality label tape has smooth, thin, narrow joint with little error and slight harden-ability. It will not easily get stuck during printing. It’s helpful for you to judge a label tape’s quality by carefully observing the label tape’s weld joint.

(3) Samples

Finished samples or products are always an efficient and straightforward way to judge a label maker tape’s quality. You can first try some samples or products to test the quality before ordering in bulk. A good quality label tape is able to print clear and durable labels with smooth surface and clear texts, while a poor quality label tape tends to produce unclear labels that will peel off, smudge or fade.

(4) Durability

Durability is also one of the standards to test a label tape’s quality and performance, which include such factors like label tape’s adhesiveness, wear-resistance, fade-resistance, chemicals-resistance and resistance to dramatic temperature changes, etc. You’d better have an understanding of these parameters before placing an order. You can also get detailed data from official report/documentation.
